Flamin 'eck they're dropping like flies. Shame about Carrie Fisher, she was too young but she had put her body through some difficult stuff. At 96 I'm sure Richard Adams was more than ready to go - I know Pa was. 


Lesley, if a new microchip or whatever it is won't do it then I shall ask for a new machine. It's a programme problem - it just won't move on.

bulbs

If you don't plant them now they will rot and die. This is their last chance. You cannot keep bulbs until next year. 


Even if they don't flower well this spring give them some fish blood and bone fertiliser as the flowers are going over and pick off any seed pods as they form. This will encourage them to grow good foliage which you must not remove - as the foliage dies down it will replenish the energy stores in the bulbs and they will flower better in future years. 


HELP! My cactus is turning black

There seems to be a glitch on the  site at the moment re uploading pics - I'm sure the tech team will get onto it when they return to the office after the Cbristmas break.

Think we'll manage Hosta - we're visiting Wonky tomorrow so if we're desperate we'll put a small load through her machine

We still have enough cheese here to stock Waitrose ... but we're ploughing manfully and womanfully through it


But a small hurrumph ... three week old washing machine is playing up - very nice customer service man is sending an engineer on Friday ... in the meantime we've got enough clothes not to have to 'go nekked' until then ...........

We still have smoked salmon and mince pies too. The only bread we have are some of those part baked baguettes that we keep for an emergency, as the local baker didn't deliver our usual large sourdough on Saturday, but we have plenty of milk so we'll stay away from the SM for as long as we can ... Still some sausage rolls,  cold cockerel and gammon in the fridge - with jacket potatoes and pickles there's plenty for the next couple of days and then ill be boiling the carcass for soup ... we're not going to starve. If need be OH will be happy to exist on chocolate marquise and raspberries.
