Car tax has come.
OH has remote! 'Nuf said!
Winds increasing, but greenhouse roof panels still in place- good tape used! The oriental poppy taking a real bashing & petals falling all over, shame. The tall Thalictrum, must be over 5ft, by now is still fine- a hidden support low down allows it to sway but still be upright. T'other one, when a bit bigger,- was slow to start this year- will need some string to attach it to wires on the trellis post when I can next get outside.
Have made a syrup sponge pudding for tonight- who says you cant put the Magi bowl into dishwasher? Ok the plastic gets knackered eventually, but dont see OH & co washing it up by hand........... I have actually got a phone number for a past supplier of spares for it, but it's a rather old model so may not be so lucky this time, not even sure company still exists!
Nurse asked had I put on weight? Yes, but no idea how much. Dont weigh myself, just go by clothes. My treat is licking out the mixing bowl & scaper- now I can do that again- raw egg etc. Need to actually weigh myself in a couple of weeks before a phone consultation. Doing it in kilos means wont have a clue!
Been thinking about the 'beans', will start them under half cover not the greenhouse so quicker to be 'hardened off' when they've germinated. Might also do some French, I like those. J.
