Wintersong if it is the lactose just buy lacto free milk - that is what I drink just the same as other milks - you can get fresh and cardboard milk

Been out fed the birds and had a pull at bits in the pond need cutters really, spotted all the bulbs poking there heads up may even get a daff soon

Woody how's your garden?  are you preparing it for the open days

Hello all, nice and sunny today must go feed the birds

Pain here wind keeps making the boiler flame go off so not really any hot water or much heat as we keep having to put the thing back on constantly

KEF arm not too bad think my leg is a bit sore from jumping on and off my table to wash the window, looks good in the sun today so when I sow seeds they should have enough light  

Bekkie know what you mean about dangerous house cleaning few year back I tidied a few trays and one of those silver thing tray with spikes that chicken sit on, on top of the oven with high grill right at top later I moved the grill pan and damn thing fell off I tried to get out the way but it was supper fast and walloped my left foot really bad agony bruised, later on got an x ray as was still painful damaged my ligament and still plays up in winter when really cold     

I get to go and get my potatoes today there will be so many to choose from

work in progress

Are you going to make anything out of pallets?

New allotment OMG...

Zoomer44 just looked up the rules from the our council website

You must cultivate at least 50% of your plot (by this we mean preparing the ground, planting, growing and harvesting crops/flowers) and the remainder must be cut down and free from weeds (the area must look maintained). From the start of your tenancy agreement you have a two month period in which enforcement for non cultivation is not applicable

So I will get two months less time

Thanks KEF for missing me just caught up on all today been around a little mainly on the allotment thread I am 8th on the list now  

Bekkie - was the inside mainly but leaning out the window trying to wash the outside and around the frame lost sponge at one point dad had to fetch it for me, much cleaner now even if I got a few cuts and bashed arm   

need a window cleaner to do the outside properly as need a long ladder to get to the window but half done  

Anyone done any gardening today?

Cleaned my room window ready for seed sowing not quite gardening but getting ready for it

New allotment OMG...

Fruitcake I remember you saying something about the lady in flip flops that could be good if you get the plot then you would not have to go far for tools

but would also be good if she made the effort and tried but may be she is one of the ones on the waiting list that gets a plot and then ends up giving up so quick 

Is there a three months time scale for turning it into a workable plot?

Roy well done that you finished digging and getting somewhere
