According to the newspapers, it's likely Aliona will be in no condition to fit into the frocks next year, let alone be lifted and spun around

I'm back - I wish I'd left it until tomorrow - the shops will be empty then, everyone's there today   But I did take advantage of the fact that Waitrose's superb cafeteria was virtually empty to treat myself to a bacon bap and coffee and a read of the Guardian. 

Now I've just got to unpack the shopping and make some pastry etc etc etc .............

Fair enough...if ecokid is over 60, has plenty of spare time and wants to exercise on his hands and knees for hours on end there is another way.  


Perhaps it's just me .... but I enjoy it

Hello Garden Fairy

I use an area of the garden that has been manured for a previous crop, so that the manure has been well broken down by the time I'm ready to sow the carrots - then I use a light sprinkling of Fish, Blood and Bone when preparing the bed.  It's an organic slow-release fertiliser and I find that's all they need.  Too much fertiliser and you'll get a lot of leaf and no carrot.

Oooh thank you Jo, just what I needed!


Fg, hail was battering the windows here when we went to bed, and again this morning!

I believe it stops the cat knocking them over. 

But doesn't the cat fall off the armchair?
