Oh that, hmmm I tried to shorten the open space but instead did the opposite, LOL.

Lottie, I remember notepads too!! Glad that the heating is working again. I have a foot warmer in my bed. Otherwise I will be up all night with cramp in my calfs.

Thanks Geoff,        Sorry to ask, Insomnia1973


Is that AT Gary, trying to sell some "sn(e)akey business" ?




Looking after an orchid

Posted: 23/01/2013 at 14:09

1. What soil did you re-pot the Moth orchid in?

2. Does the temperature in the room go beneath 18 C at night or is it standing in a cold(er) spot?

3. What is your watering regime?

4. A clear photo could clarify a lot

Jo, maybe OH could rent a front loader, that would keep him safe (until he drives into a ditch that is)

What's Fine Fare? Could someone explain please?

 I hadn't thought of that but yes, when I was a little girl we used to have the milkman's van too and in some regions they still have the odd one. Most of the time they also sold other groceries. We did have quite a few shops but over the years most of them either gave up or the owners didn't have anyone to follow in their footsteps.

It would be, wouldn't  it Geoff?!!            Hope your getting the picture. That's what he does all day, every day  The good part is that he gets to see loads of wildlife, more than you would see in the woods on a walk.

Staying indoors as much as I can Caz, though the birds do need feeding in this kind of weather. I do feel sorry for my OH who has to go in and out his front loader every day. I also worry about him being safe on the road 'cos he has to drive through a part of Germany to get to work and they only clear the main roads, so very slippery.

Afternoon all,

Just popping in to see if you all are ok. By the look of all the posts most of you are living in a white world too. Hopefully not as cold as here, - 12 C last night.

No online supermarket shopping available here, as far as I know. Well, not entirely true, but the one that does is also the most expensive one and is known to bully farmers into cheaper produce but raising their prices for the customer... Not something I can recommend really.

Keep warm and safe everyone  

Guess the little tree

It's a Cotoneaster. Not sure which variety though, I think it's C.dammeri.
