Christmas stuff in shop

Posted: 10/10/2014 at 08:10

I enjoy celebrating at Christmas and New Year with my family and friends.   I understand the way that Christians have adopted the old midwinter festival, but for me the deep-seated need is to celebrate Midwinter - possibly having had my first baby at the Midwinter Solstice may be something to do with it   As someone who loves Nature, 'decking the halls with boughs of holly' etc has always had significance for me, and as someone who enjoys cooking, I look forward to the preparation of the 'feast' and make puddings and pies (and countless lists) well beforehand.

But as for the C*mas Shopping!    I start that when I'm ready .... and not before!

Pdoc ((hugs))  so glad to hear your mum has got some sight and some confidence back.  What a fantastic adventure you have planned! Now you really need to start feeding yourself up - like seals and walrus you'll need a layer of blubber to keep the cold out 

wooden planter

Just check on the How To tab at the top of the page. You'll find a list of projects including how to build wooden planters. You should be able to work out the materials you need from that. To price the materials you can look at the websites of DIY merchants such as B&Q or Homebase. 

New Weeding Tool

I find that a small hand fork, a small onion hoe and my fingers are the best weeding tools I've ever used.

Good morning all from sunny Suffolk  hopefully the flooding of yesterday will have disappeared by the time we get on the road. Got to pick my car up from being fitted with some new welly boots!

Not allowed to grow veg!?  Sounds like the old restrictions imposed on 'new suburbs' built in the first half of the last century - No pigs or pigeons! 

Wasps

Posted: 08/10/2014 at 20:02

Bob, we don't seem to have a shortage of wasps here but I'm quite happy to send as many as it takes to Westminster to ensure that they get a proportion of stings commensurate with their 'stings' inflicted on the rest of us
