If you slept well after watching Saw , think you'll manage tonight.

It appears to be untrue anyway.

Oi , I'm still around you know.

I ate goat once .  Didn't know what it was at the time but I'm sure I've eaten much worse - like the little flies that you swallow when walking and talking, and the spiders that creep into your mouth while you're asleep.

no whinge gardening!!!!!

Just having one of these.

 Yes. Love them Geoff.  Saw them live once in London. Just had Division Bell on - forgotten how good that is . Now for a spot of The Wall.

Good job this is a detatched house - the more I'm enjoying it , the more the volumes getting higher.

Sorry Pam, completely missed your post.  Yes Pam. the cobaea was a waste of time last year - I lost the lot. Not even one solitary flower Even the one bud dropped off eventually so I 'm not going to bother this year.

Got some canary creeper seeds so hoping they will do better. Apparently they don't need as much heat as the cobaea so here's hoping.

Morning all  Birds fed kitchen ,sorted and now to tackle conservatory  Not sure where to start as there are so many plants in there.

Liz , maybe cook him a nice meal at home ?

Weather grey and miserable here but wouldn't say it's freezing so may get outside for a bit later. Still some honeysuckle root left.  Tenacious little bxxxxr.

Think I'll put a bit of Floyd on while I'm pottering . Pink that is . Not the chef.
