Afternoon all. Hot hot hot. Still doing bloomin' ceiling - now steaming and washing off sticky brown gunge left by woodchip removal. Gave up at lunchtime, now going to do gardening for a bit. Have sent OH out for a Magnum for me.

Did not watch XF, went to storytelling event in an Earth-house at Ancient Technology Centre.

Kate, so sorry to hear about OH's contretemps, hope all is soon sorted - good if perp. gets his just desserts ;- )

I think Geoff gets his menu planning from Jess these days ;- )

Yes, we do get people nicking stuff and others who complain about prices. The nickers seem to think it's OK because the stuff was donated anyway. I had an 11 year old haggling over a price this morning! I gave in; I'm no good at all that stuff which is why I never go to car boot sales.

Have been working in charity shop all morning for dog rescue. People who can't sell their tat at car boots bring it to us so we can take it to the tip and save them the bother. Lovely people also bring us stuff that has been carefully sorted and washed so it's not all doom and gloom!!

Lots of green fingers crossed for you Miss B.
I haven't read the Hunger Games. Is it to be recommended?

I'm looking for a folding table - dining table height - to use in the conservatory. I think if you just nick one that they've got their wares on, that will probably do. Thanks.

Miranda - fab, even if it is a repeat.

If you manage to grow some, I will be very glad for you and will hang on your every word ;- )  I really like it and it's always very pricey in shops as well as having a short season.

Hello forkers. Have finally got the last of the wretched woodchip painted ceiling paper off. Can't believe how much activity on the thread while I've been slaving away up a ladder with a steamer and a scraper. Going over ita ll again to scrub off the residual sticky brown stuff is not at appealing - and definitely not today!

I need snooze and cake but dogs haven't had a walk today.

Sorry about this but I can't help smiling when I see your thread title

 I've never yet succesfully grown the stuff. Too many predators and I'm clearly not as determined as you TDVG.
