Lynn ((hugs)) hope you've had a restful night - thinking of you

Good morning Chicky and anyone else who's up and about   Isn't it weird how those dreams stay with you for a while - hope that cuppa sorts you out.

I've got to go into the city this morning - apart from some other bits and pieces, I need a special lightbulb for the Habitat lamp and the brilliant ironmongers in the city centre has them - I shall buy several - and look at their seeds - not that I really need any

Hi all!............ Dove, if there's any Guinness cake left, I'd love a slice please...    Virtual cake is wonderful for those on a diet. 



Of course Liri - help yourself

I rather think we should have had virtual Irish Stew and Colcannon   and now OH says we should finish off last night's rhubarb crumble and custard - it's all right for him, he's got a metabolism to die for and hollow legs

Nearly supper time - anyone else having Irish Stew and Colcannon as it's St Patrick's Day?

Decking and rats

Good idea!  Also giving the decking a bit of a hammering from time to time - gives 'em a headache

Yes please Wintersong

Matty, that's lovely news

And I'm celebrating - at last I've made sense of the knitting pattern neck and shoulder shaping and it's turned out right

What I've found is that they don't produce suckers until the tree gets too big for it's space and you start to prune it - it responds by throwing up suckers right, left and centre
