Morning Dove. Glad you had a good evening. Stick a croissant in for me...

Not seen G'sW either. May watch it while having breakfast. Rain not arriving till later here but I tucked stuff in last night too - just in case!

Glad the exam went well for little chicklet. Light at the end of the tunnel now 

Thanks for the hug - I'm just a silly old bat really 

Off to bed I think. Nite all

Evening all. Grass cut and all edges done and bits pruned from hedge and the overhanging potentilla on the front path and loads of other 'stuff'. Too late for dinner by the time I came in so a banana and  tea and 2 digestive bikkies have been consumed instead  

Looks good KEF - any leftovers ?

Good book doc- and congrats to nephew.Thanks to both of you for kind words 

Percy - re son  I always have rough skin on my feet from walking and I use the electric sander on them. Works a treat

No probs Panda...

Not sure the cable will reach though....

Panda what size are your shorts if there are guides in them?...

Off to cut the grass soon as it will have dried out now from all the recent rain.

Evening all. Been outside all day, splitting phormiums and sowing basil, spinach and more poppies  

In for a cuppa, but since the girls are away and I'll just be eating whatever's lying around, perhaps I could just visit you Dove....if I leave now I'd be there around midnight...

I see John H is being cheeky. Will have to think of a suitable punishment. Plague of  snails maybe...

Listened to Jeremy Vine while doodling around today. Terrific - very moving.  Got very teary when he played Moonlight Serenade as my Dad played with the Glen Miller orchestra a few times after Miller went missing. The little clarinet solo would have been his part. 

Is it just me?

What a bunch of weirdos you all are.....I'm completely normal....

Don't like cheesecake either OL. Cheese is cheese and  cake is cake and never the two should meet 

Soap under the nails doesn't work for me. My nails are permanently dirty these days - hate wearing gloves in the garden.

I'd accidentally 'trip' and drop those boxes fidget...

Off outside to do a bit of potting and whatever else needs doing. Have a good day everyone 

Moving Daffodils?

If I've got some in pots, I just tuck them away in a quiet corner and let them die down Boris. I use Multi Purpose compost for any that I've lifted and potted up and it seems to do the job. Just remember to label them though! As Verdun says, you can just replant in places you want to put them if you have a space ready.
