Yay! I had to re-boil the mint jelly, but it's set perfectly now
Spent the rest of the morning on the phone to OH's colleague boosting her confidence so she can tell the ex exactly what's what - doesn't even give her any financial child support, and is unreliable about contact - useless - him and his mother both
Well, we're definitely on chalk and it's very close to the surface just here - there's a chalk pit and tunnels a couple of hundred metres from our front door - we'll have to wait and see what happens
Have a good journey Chicky
Hosta have you caught my shoulder problem? These internet viruses are very catching! For heaven's sake don't overdo it with the wood chip!!!
No chance of seeing the moon here last night - any hoggies about would've needed their waders on
Well, normal pruning for Jackmanii is to cut hard back in spring so I wouldn't worry. If it makes new growth this autumn it'll be tender and suffer from the frosts, but cut it back again in the spring and give it a feed and I'm sure it'll flower its socks off again for you.
Just had a few phone calls - OH's colleague has child care problems (again) - flippin ex trying to sabotage her job. Won't happen! OH has phoned former colleague who is now a lady of leisure but likes to come in and work occasionally (for a good gossip ). She'll cover for the day However it may mean that he's late home as he'll do all the closing down and cashing up - casserole and dumplings will wait for him whatever time he gets back, so that's a decision made
DD ((hugs)) why not ask Charlie what works for him re handovers? I'm not saying he should make all the decisions, but his view could be taken into account when plans are being made - he's sensible enough to understand that there will be other factors to take into consideration as well. Enjoy your weekend
Verdun this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/3314808/How-to-grow-Molinia-caerulea.html says they're fine on limey soil and certainly mine are fine after a year here - looks like you can give them a try
Verdun says:. ...molinias need moisture and acidic soil ......so one of the few grasses I cannot grow See original post

Really? Mine are fine after a year on chalk in my fairly free-draining garden Do you think they'll not last?
You 'sound' brighter today Wonky You know Dove knows best
Just spoke to OH -he's just got damp socks, but he has some spare ones with him so he doesn't need me to ferry a change of clothing out to him - he was wearing his waterproof leggings and coat - should have worn his wellies as well
I took some stewing beef out of the freezer last night - I think a hearty casserole is on the cards for this evening - dumplings anyone?
