That's elderflower fizz for you, Becks.

I am making a mental list (yes, I am an environ mentalist) of stuff I would like to buy to make my kitchen and allotment and flat better to live in, as I shall be retiring next January on a state pension. Any suggestions gratefully received!

Oh, my kettle died tonight - well almost and it's been on its last legs for ages. It was very cheap and 7 years old. I might be a maverick and buy one that I can put on the stove.

Evening, Forkers.

You've all been very busy in your gardens and GHs. I'm jealous, being stuck in the orifice all week. I shall venture for a bit of digging on the allotment tomorrow night - was going tonight but I gave my lovely work mate a lift to pick up his van from the garage instead.

I had a bit of a windfall today drop into my bank account - it's been 12 months' of hard going to get it so I'm celebrating! Drinks all round......

Might buy another raised bed or two.......

Morning all,

Sunny here but a stiff breeze, by the looks of the waving tree branches. Brrrrr.....have to zip off to work now. Enjoy your gardens, lucky people.

Nothing wrong with Midlands, Rosa.

My parents were Black Country, though quite 'well spoken', and Mother didn't approve of us speaking 'Brummie'. Dad spoke two languages - Black Country at work and RP at home. My brother has moved back to the Black Country and likes to use the accent.

I was dragged up in West Midlands, then moved to Manchester/Kent/Wrexham/Liverpool/Hastings/Somerset. I was always good at languages so tend to be a bit of a chameleon where accents are concerned. A friend was listening to my voicemail message on my mobile the other day in my presence, and said I sounded posh! Must be my 'telephone voice'. He said there was no trace of Midlands - not that I am ashamed of it, but some people seem to have a prejudice.

I took on my allotment last July, covered in weeds, and had mostly cleared it when the rains started.

It is clay and on the Somerset Levels.This was the field next door, on a good day........
