HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 16/10/2014 at 07:08

Fingers crossed Lesley - it's going to make the manicure difficult but I'll cope somehow

Think parquet's going to be ok - I grabbed the towels from the downstairs loo straight away and the floor was re-sealed not too long ago - fingers crossed for that too!

Good morning all

More rain overnight but still mild - dahlia still flowering happily.  Very soggy underfoot so no gardening this morning.  I'll give myself a manicure and a paint job for Aunt & Unc's WA this evening!  That'll hide the grime   Then I'll have a lazy morning and let the paint harden - setting off for rellies after lunch.

Has anyone checked up on the Heatwave?  I want to know that it's going to be dry as well as warm - not a steam bath!

I'm wondering whether they're too warm - the weather is still mild.  What type of cabbages are they?

Any idea why he feels the need to climb over?  Was he after something or had something been thrown over?

Looks like some sort of fungal infection to me, possibly one of the blights - what are they like inside and what was the vine and foliage like?

I was going out to the car with a jug of water to top up the washer bottle, the phone rang so I put the jug down on a stool and it wasn't standing straight and 4 pints of water went all over the parquet

Duh!

Slow cookers

Posted: 15/10/2014 at 18:29

Mine's not a snug fit either - it just rests on top - nothing evaporates. 

Make sure you only use a very little liquid in it when cooking veg as they give off their own liquid and as none of it evaporates the dish can get very soupy if you use the usual amount of liquid.

Love mine - wouldn't be without it.  Get lots of use out of it.

Speak to your Community Policeman/woman.  It's what they're for.
