Oh , and I bought some Rose harissa. I fancy doing something with it and chickpeas. I've got to start doing something adventurous seeing as I've eliminated pastry, pizza, and pasta and cakes and biscuits. I have noticed that I seem to be better at sticking to this than himself. Its supposed to be for his benefit.

My post from this morning has gone missing too. I asked if anyone had heard from Fairygirl. I hope she's not under a snowdrift.

It seems to have been eliminated. Maybe she's joined MI5.

I am being sent some samples of a new fragrance called 007 for women.  I think it should have been called  Bondgirl instead.

I've been shopping today. Some clinique (on special offer), two bras, and I've cleaned two Sainsburies out of a nice merlot they had on offer. That should keep me going for a while.

When to move snowdrops

I let mine die down, then dig up and replant the bulbs at once, spaced out more. The important thing is to not dig them up, let them dry out and then replant months later.

Snowdrops never recover from shrivelling up.

Sadly, a lesson not learned!

As it says, you're only exempt if you have the exemption certificate.

I find it amazing that the pricing bureau even bother to check people who are obviously diabetic and having insulin. It seems to me a no brainer, that if they are on insulin, then they should get it free.

They dont seem to pick up on the ones on income support going on a three month holiday to some foreign land and having a stock up on medicines to take with them.

But I should probably put that on the rant thread.

Its 2.5 centigrade here, no frost. Its still cold. I have run OH to the station to catch a train to London. Hes working with the met police soc unit all week, teaching them how to use a 3D laser scanner. As well as being a taxi driver, I've put the washer on and dryer on, and turned the heating on early.

Off to the peaks today, I'm working all day as well.

Today might be a caramel donut day.

I dont start  squash until early May, and plant out late may when all the frosts have gone.
