Possibly the poor ginger crop identified in 2011 has fed through at last?

Office plant?

b. In the first month of this year I will have taught more school children than we did in the entire year of 2011.

c. In the first two months of this year we are only 68 school children (so far) short of beating the entire amount of children we taught in 2012. Can you see where this challenge is going? ...




   You're going to run out of schoolchildren   ???????????

Glad you're feeling better Hosta   Don't go off alcohol completely - we thought we'd bring some with us in June

Don't think Prontalgine is available under that name in the UK.  It's a brand name for Co-codamol which can be bought over the counter in low strengths only in the UK - you need a GP prescription for the stronger stuff - which is what Wonky had the other day

Pat, the media and marketing people have come up with the theory that today is the most depressing day of the year when most people are most miserable - Huh!  not in this house it ain't  ....... we're gearing up for Burn's night and haggis here, swiftly followed by the most importand day in the year ............ My Birthday!!!

Good morning all  G'day Pat and Ginger if you're around

So glad that Wonky's on the mend - at least I can understand what she's saying on the phone - there was one day that all she could do was mumble and I had to tell her to text me!    DD, hope yours is better soon .... I remember when I had a similar infection - I'd have rather gone through six labours than go through that again!

Temp down to -0.4C in the sheltered back garden last night, but above freezing now ... just

We've not got many birds visiting the feeders at the moment - I think they're missing the ash tree we felled.  It'll be better when we get some shrubs in to replace it.
