HELLO FORKERS! November Edition

Posted: 09/11/2016 at 09:00

Sorry - I've been busy building a wall - the Mexicans are already here - though they're finding it a bit chilly.....

I had a recurring issue with my wrist BL - thanks for asking.  It makes using the mouse a bit painful. Too much time spent on here....

My daughter just came in before heading to uni and said  'well that's the Apocalypse started'....

Morning all - I won't say 'good'....

Thanks for the concern - my hand is sore but I thought I'd look in.

Anyone got a handcart so that we can all ride to hell in it? We're now at a stage where so called  'celebrity' madness has taken over. I'm going to find a cave up a hill somewhere. 

Snow here, and nowing again. Matches my feelings I think. Won't be outside today unless it's to clear the paths.

No chance of catching up with what you've all been doing so I'll just say hope everyone is ok and has a good day - or as good a one as is possible.

Evening all. Been busy grafting outside - very productive as I managed to move a hydrangea into a new position. Not sure it'll survive, but that's life!  

Sorry you had the sh***y Sunday customers Hosta. Daughter does an early shift at Asda on Sunday - the click and collect thing - so she doesn't have to deal with the 'plebs' like she does on Saturday. Bearing in mind that the store is in a very affluent area, it's quite incredible how rude some folk are.  All the card machines went into meltdown throughout the whole country and some people showed their true colours.  What the **** is wrong with people nowadays? 

Not sure what we'll have for dinner as daughter is now doing her cake. May have to go to the Chinese takeaway.....

I'll just have toast...or more of that tart.....

Beautiful photos K on G.

Is the Leonotis tender though? It's a terrific colour. Same here Joyce - not familiar with it at all.

I haven't seen that Euonymous before either Patsy - it's really lovely. 

Love those pix too Lesley - it's been a lovely day here today. I was thinking that yesterday as I drove home - all the trees are just stunning at the moment.

Anyone got any raspberries to go with that choccy tart? 

and some cream....

T'bird - you can never have too many young men in uniform...

I felt sorry for the one who was " puffin' and' peckin' " as we would say here. Think he would have given anything to be back in his bed!    A couple of them were having difficulty negotiating the little downward scramble too. There must have been about forty or fifty in a couple of groups. I suppose it's something we take for granted, that these lads are fit, but it's a different thing entirely going up a hill and they have to do a fair bit to get the hang of it. I certainly would't fancy carrying their backpacks....size of a small child....

I missed your view chciky - glorious  

It's brightened here so I think I'll get outside and do something productive

I'm with nut on that - I loathe that thing 

New to gardening, please help

Have you any photos you can put on here? That will also help with any suggestions as to plants etc. 

Click on the camera icon, top right of the posting window, and follow instructions. You may have to resize.

Feeding birds will be a good start for your wildlife friendly spot, and if you can do a pond, that will be even better. If you have room for a compost bin that's also a good idea, and something you can do now.

Take your time with planning - it helps if you have an idea of what you don't like. That's every bit as important as what you do like or need. This is a good time of year to make lists 

ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with gardening, too!

it's illegal for companies not to pay back any credit now. It should never become more than a month's payment. 

I don't understand why anyone nowadays doesn't monitor their usage and jump ship if there's a better deal. It's not difficult if you have a computer - or a smart phone. Companies also have to inform you if they have a better deal and have to make it clear what that is. I change mine almost every year, unless there's a better deal with the company I'm with.
