Serves 6-8  Don't think so,

Jaws and jaws 2 ?

  Liz . yes - know you are in France but always thought weather was similar to UK apart from the South.  I'm jealous - want to come and stay.

Think this cold weather is having an effect on my appetite.

Roast beef with all the trimmings  followed by that rather nice dessert.

Can't wait - trying to stop myself from having a snack.

Liz - 14 ?? Think it's 4 here.  

Will investigate those Gardenias Dean - quite fancy one.

Good bargain hunting Goldi - Aldi also have cheap seeds - 39p. Got some Nigella .  . On the choc front just found a Toblerone dessert in the bowels of the freezer so will be getting stuck in later.

What have you named your new fish Geoff ?

I take it the hangover's gone then Dean,

Well done , given up with Rhodos but would love a Gardenia  In one of the gardening catalogues there's a new one that's frost hardy. Might be tempted.

Just discovered all my Cosmos seeds I saved from last years plants are all up.

Chuffed to little mint-balls.

 Seen it all now , Flo. Lucky escape for Maggie.

Having gardening withdrawal symptoms today - far too cold for me  but OH is out there treating the arch and posts as the new trellis panels are standing out like a sore thumb.

Having problems with the water feature , he think's it's a break in the wiring somewhere so  it's going to be a process of elimination  He's not one to be beaten though so know it will be sorted eventually - just don't know when.

Is everyone out and about in their thermals ?

I have a daisy grubber that used to belong to my Grandad. It has a wooden handle that has gone smooth with age and brings back so many happy memories of him. I take it with me whenever I'm out and about in the garden.

Really useful little tool as well as being an object of sentimentality.

Afties all

 To all the Mums in the world,

Well , busy day for me yesterday . most of family came to visit as it was Daughters birthday and Grandson's birthday today. Bjay - still haven't managed to get to H/Bargains and see what seed disks they've got but will definitely go through nthe week - sorry.

Had a lovely morning and some nice thoughtful pressies and cards . Very touched (but you all know that anyway. }

Going to immerse myself in the bath now with my new smellies. Mr Radox has been dumped.

Some time today , I will catch up on everything.

Bjay - broken your bed ?

You really must tell OH To stop wearing that Superman suit.

Catch up later.

Morning Folks - Another grey miserable day here,  but cheer up everyone, it's only 12 days to the official start of Spring.

Got a busy day planned. Daughter's birthday today, Grandson's birthday tomorrow on Mother's Day . We are all having a get-together so I'm looking forward to it,

Bjay - if you are around - didn't manage to get to H.B. yesterday so will go today and report back on the seed disk situation.

Have a good day all.

Morning Bunny and Gary and to all who will be up and about shortly. 

Nice to see Jo and globe-trotting Gyn back.

Not a good day here. Raining quite heavily and miserable

Hope your frogs have got thermals Gary. Sunday is looking to be the coldest day but I'm sure Mr Mystical orange balls will give us an update when he arises.

Greetings everyone  Nice to hear from you , Jo . Wondering what you'd been up to but thought you would have been busy. Have a chill now.

Strange story about the dogs. Wonder what that could be ? Hope folk stay away from the area until the problem's solved.

Got baked potatoes in but what to have with them.

Your Grandson looks a cutie, Pam.  Size of that rabbit.
