I use ordinary multi-purpose compost for pots of bulbs for outside.

Good morning those of you who weren't there earlier   ((hugs)), commiserations, and as appropriate, help yourselves.  

Good luck Clari

Looks as if those of us in the East and South-east  of England are in for a wet day

This site is going to get a major makeover and it will be much more user-friendly, especially for those using iPads/tablets/smartphones etc.   

It won't be long now

Hi Pat - not fixed yet - it is now at the specialist Renault place and they will use their computers to investigate exactly where the fault is - then it will probably have to go back to the cheaper garage for the repairs (unless it's an easy fix which Renault can do cheaply). 

I've loved having the car, it's a convertible and I've had it for a while now, but it's getting on a bit and beginning to have a few problems - I'm thinking that when the spring comes it may be as well to sell it to someone who wants to have bit of fun in the sun on the cheap and get myself something less fun but more reliable.

Good morning Jo and everyone else G'day Pat

Osborne = Chancellor of the Exchequer (from one of the richest families in the country - what does he understand about how losing £1300 a year will affect the working poor??? )

More coffee needed

Poisoned peregrines and other raptors should be reported to the police - it's a criminal offence and they have specialist units to deal with it.
