Hi all.

OH & me had a pleasant shop first thing. I cant get my head around how this supermarket can be soo quiet on a Saturday! Has a good stock & loads of room between isles, bliss.

Am employee had much amusement at my expense this morning. OH, of course, had wandered off, in search of light bulbs. I'm standing in front of the bread rolls muttering to self about what someone is likely to need? 'You do know that you're talking to yourself?' says man loading up bread shelves. 'Yes' I replied 'at least I get an answer, if not always sensible!' Both now sniggering!! OH then reappears looking puzzled & asks 'what's funny?' which sets us 2 off even more.......

The 'b' slimey brigade have eaten every one of my sweetpea seedlings so will try again in Spring, as usual!

Now to check out Geoffs & Becks quiz. J.

Jo 4eyes here- have discovered this morning that all of my autumn sown seedlings have been eaten by the slimey brigade whilst in a coldframe!

Oh well, early Spring sowing on the 'to do' list! J.

What's the weather like in your area?

Dull today, barely no wind.

Was just below feezing, in the back garden at first light today. Now a very balmy (!) 6-7C out there.

Fed the birds & squirrels! Discovered that my autumn sown sweetpea seedlings have been eaten whilst in the coldframe! J.

OMG you lot!!

BTW he's got his own set! Tins that is!

I know that I've not yet sorted my avatar out, depends on how obliging daughter feels over the w/end........ not forgotten though, but by the time it gets done will be spring & OOD!

Have packed in doing the letters for today, only 3 more to do! I decided against a 'round-robin' type this year as cant remember who knew what. Trouble is doing more individual takes for ever!!

Oh heck cant think anymore, night all. J.

You see, someone always knows the answer! Norm2 thxs. Will carefully show it to OH, but at least now he's as baffled as me! Over to heating engineer methinks!

Sorry Bjay,  thought you knew Frank. Lots of good gardening experience & stories!

Miss B, any 'office' relating to work that could be used on your behalf for the collection? J.

Yep, supposed to take it easy....

Seriously- apparently the valve IS fitted  the correct way round after all. OH found the operating instructions, completely turned things off, allowed to cool, then back on....phew, no plumbinmg shenanagins (?) around here needed. Still doesnt explain the boiler though.....

ARGH- have just stopped OH snaffling most of my baking parchment circles & the rest.....come on, leave this house some!! Big argument about needing a certain size for his cake tins & no he couldnt possibly have used that size with my cake tins! Ha, big mistake to argue with me when I know am right!

At least have got his shopping requirements before we get to supermarket- half of 'wants' 'in stock' already. Oh the joys (!) of 2 houses......

I really must do some cards..... J.
