RB - you'll have to start wearing  tin foil on your head like those mad Americans who think it keeps the aliens away! 

That was a load of good results you had - brilliant! Perhaps you need a clear out of stuff on the pooter - might be running slow etc. I sound like I know what I'm talking about there.... 

I know what you mean about no room Clari - this house is the smallest I've lived in for fifteen years and it annoys me constantly. I put up with the drier sitting in the kitchen fro now - it'll eventually have a place if/when I get this extension built. I keep all the bird food on top of it though!  

Christmas songs with plant names in the title

I might as well tuck my wotsits in my welly tops RB - they're heading that far south anyway...

B****y freezing here too - sleety rain  

My BIL always sings  # Deck the halls and deck the holly...

But it helped that you  posted this as well Dove. Now I can picture this  if I have to endure his b***y song over the next few weeks....

Does anyone know the piece 'Crown of Thorns'?  Just beautiful.

Almost enough to make me believe...for a couple of minutes anyway....

I don't decorate early either Clari. Sick of the sight of it all by Boxing Day otherwise. Usually a week before. I always have a real tree but I can't be bothered at all this year. Think the girls are a bit annoyed. I'm turning into my mother ...  

Get a drier - you won't regret it. The new ones don't use that much energy either, and it's far better for your health (and the health of the house) not having wet clothes everywhere. I hang the odd thing on a radiator first, although that is a pet hate of mine...hopeless mare  

Oh - and enjoy a bit of time off... 

Never Never Not Ever

If someone gives me a plant - it's mine.  I might think of the person who gave me it when I see it, but other than that....  It's a gift - clue's in the title.

It's the same the other way round - if I give someone a plant - it's theirs. It's a nice feeling to give someone a plant to help them out with their garden, or for any other reason of course.  Perhaps I'm just not sentimental about plants.

I always find her annoying ...

Did they have a 'find' from their attics worth millions?

Morning all. No idea what the weather is - too dark. Back to the usual I think, after the weird rise in temps for a while yesterday. Would much rather have your frost B'man instead of the wet cold we have 

Good luck to Mr chicky for today. It seems to have come round quickly - hope it's felt like that for him though. Thinking of you all chicky 

RB - good to hear son is on the mend. It's clear how serious his injury is though. Here's hoping he continues to improve and come to terms with it all.

Pat - I don't bother with the notifications - gave up a long time ago! I just look at the threads I've posted on and look at the ones that interest me or I feel I could help with.

Off for a quick look round before work. Have a good day everyone - stay warm and dry. Pat - stay warm or cool depending on what you get! 

Green flowers

Green - my favourite colour. I love it on flowers and foliage.

Calming and restful. The perfect foil for all other colours, whether you want a strong, dazzling contrast or a more muted sympathetic one
