Chick - I've just sent you a little PM to see if the thing's working for me. Let me know on here if you get it!

I don't think anyone will mind gf. It's annoying when things don't work! Maybe I was just lucky yesterday when I answered the message I got.

Chick- do you want pix of us all swearing and crying when we can't get it in position!

Pic please of your first tomato 

These scammers are vile. No conscience. At least the ones that do it on here will get no joy-everyone's too switched on. The kind that prey on the elderly in particular should be jailed for life.

I realised you meant that Daintiness but my PMs were working yesterday as I replied to one, yet others - chicky certainly- were having a prob so it can't be the forum - this time anyway!  

Mine also sometimes shows there's a new message when there isn't.

I've heard of people using it on driveways to make them more appealing, and it copes with cars being parked on it. I think it sounds a lovely idea Lolo, but nut's right - don't wear sandals when you put the washing out!

Daintiness - I've never used the big reply button at top of thread pages - I just write in the message box next to my name.

Good luck with that MrsG....

Dove that sounds like a nice Aquilegia. I found a site that sells some lovely shade loving plants on it that had a few white ones so I might be tempted over the dark, wet winter months ...

Bright here - we had the rain last night and getting dry now. Help coming today to move shed so I'll have to go and start emptying soon. Will be glad  lot of turf to lift too. Rain started yesterday so didn't get as much done as I'd like. Cake duty interfered too. That was an enjoyable break - lots of chocolatey pots and bowls to lick- chef's perks!

Enjoy the day everyone

gf- chicky had the same prob yesterday but I had a reply to a PM I sent someone recently and replied to it yesterday. I use a laptop so could it just be your computer or the server you use or something? Listen to me -  sounding as if I know what I'm talking about - 'server' indeed!  

Good Evening FORKERS

All the more cake for me...greedy little fairy....yum yum 

It's chocolate coated salad fidget- don't let that boy fool you 

Chucking it down earlier so didn't get back out to get more plants in. Only just gone off again but I'm too full of cake to go back out. Lots of turf to remove for new beds etc. Shed being moved tomorrow (hopefully) so I'll need to empty it but will try and get more plants in if I can summon up the energy. Starting to feel I'm creating a garden instead of just doing construction.

Good Evening FORKERS

Yes BL- all by my own fair hand and we're about to have a bit!

It's just an all in one mix with some cocoa powder - Mary Berry's standard recipe. 6oz each of SR flour, soft marge and sugar - I use soft brown and caster - and 3 eggs. Beta together and add a couple of tablespns of cocoa powder that you've dissolved in a few spoons of boiling water. Into 2 tins and bake at about 175 C for about 25 mins. The fudge icing is hers too. 4oz icing sugar, 1 oz soft marge, half ounce cocoa powder which is enough to fill the cake (7") Double that if you want it on top as well. You melt the marge add the cocoa and cook for a minute or so then add the icing sugar and beat. You can add a spoonful or two of milk too. Then melted chocolate and double cream  and a little knob of butter for a ganache/thick sauce which went over the cream and over the top with a few choc curls- cos there wasn't really enough chocolate in it....
