Elf, perhaps we should let the powers that be know about this hiccup - I personally don't want to pass as someone from Cambridgeshire South and perhaps the same applies to you re Cannock Chase?

Sam, sounds lovely what you plan to do. I agree fallen leaves are rather a waste of  energy unless they are on a path in which case I do try to clear them as I don't want to fall over!

daydaisy, why do you find it difficult to thin the apples on your trees? I fought against it for a while then decided that if the powers that be say it is a good thing to do I had better do it!

Lovely to read all your resolutions for 2013 but I think happymarion takes first prize....the rest of you are excellent runners up tho'

I have the seed packets from last year on hand and the new seed catalogues but somehow with these sodden days and early evenings I cannot quite get motivated yet. Does anyone else have this problem?

FloSilverFairy, I had that problem this morning, too, and like you thought it was moi!

Nice to be in here to have a chat. Not feeling too good as have a mild form of norovirus so have to stay home and cancelling arrangements every day - yuck

Hello jackie frost, I tend to chop them finely (removing the seeds) and add them to the onions when they are cooking. After that I add the mince (usually browned in a separate pan to remove the liquid!)

Well...I have tried to change my profile and there seems to be a problem. Thinking about it perhaps the Help Desk has a full in-box so hopefully I shall remember some time next week to persevere!
