I did spot a product at the GC yesterday that you could apparently add to bird baths to prevent/limit the freezing, but no idea of it's name, sorry. J.

Composting and wormery

Without reading back the whole lot of this thread, I am wondering what the benefits of a wormery is. My compost is in wooden bins, straight onto the ground and when I shovel out, its absolutely full of earth worms, are the ones in a wormery something special?

Dont forget to put all your junk mail and mags in the bin as well, Monty says everything goes in his.

The worms are the same sort Lyn. If my wormery seems to be struggling I raid the compost bin for a few & vice versa if need to. J.

Honestly Geoff

One of the ladies have met through that course I did, has kept her hair short. She used to have below shoulder length hair before her chemo, but had it cut before she lost it all. Now it's regrowing, still shorter than mine & has had it cut twice! Me & a 3rd lady are still muttering about getting ours done. J.

Eek, have just had an invite to an Osmonds concert!! Noway!

Bjay, looks as if you'll really get the snow tonight/tomorrow. We appear to be on the dividing line between orange/yellow snow warning areas.

I dont need hairspray yet- getting there though. Wear my fleece lined 'buff' when out & end up with hair stuck up on end when I remove it! Will have to have a trim soon. J.

Hi Bjay, that's why I decided to do more shopping than had planned yesterday. I just didnt want to go out again today as knew cleaning was overdue! BTW nearly there!

Never shop around here on a Friday, ever, 'coz it's murder, unlike opposite who go every week 2pm on the dot! That's why will normally shop on a Saturday- get the paper too. Only one we do get & yes can read on line, but the crossword not easy to do that way!Plus you cant then store clippings from the gardening section.

Have just turned on tv very quietly to see latest forecasts & see if I can override the digi box on something later on. Can dust etc in here at the same time. J.

Hi Lottie, know what you mean about OH & driving! I always tend to drive when we go anywhere, because I learnt to drive first, but he used to do 'the chemo run' to the hospital.... I used to take half a travel tablet & make sure I kept my feet very still & looked out of the side window......

My Mum had some osteoporosis, never officially diagnosed, but looking back you can see the signs. Luckliy she never fell, nor broke anything.

Right, break time over, again.... J.

That's about it Rain. I call it the 'nasty' tablet because of it's potential problems. Well if it saves me from future trouble, so be it.

Bin men been. As usual, despite me putting our bin on one side of drive it ends up partway down the road. Neigbour away, so usually hers & mine together- down the road.....

Am having an early lunch so can get other things done next- getting there, but slowly. Am saving a piece of cake for a treat when I finish. J.

Has anyone got any snow yet?

Posted: 17/01/2013 at 10:54

Oh heck Rain. We were warmer this morning than bedtime last night. Lowest so far has been -4.8C.

It's trying to snow out there now- WManchester- & actually just above freezing, which makes sense.

Take care peeps. J.
