OH has just had to get into his car via climbing over the passenger seat coz he moved it closer to the wall when daughter grumbled! Assume that's how he got out of it too, but he never said....   J.

I'm back to me as well. Keeping my avatar coz 1. I like it & nowt else really in flower & 2. havent got any new ones yet to take it's place.

OH just loading up his car & I'm listening to the wind vibrating through the patio doors behind me! That means if it stays windy the roof tile above our bed will also rattle tonight! J.

I've just popped some washing on line & had a trot round outside. The sun coming & going.

Only plant in flower this yr is Vibernum Bodnantse, but lots of bulbs coming up, lots of moss , & my sweetpeas in the coldframe are trying to reshoot after the slug attack!

Found a nice (!) group of slug eggs on top of a pot in 1 coldframe- birds now enjoying! J.

NYF- Jean? lost the plot a while back, sorry. I know about KD's habit of long performances. Daughter will drop us off & depending on finish time may collect us or we can use local taxi. Not a saturday night, so shouldnt be a prob, she says hopefully. Also an 'all night' bus route too! J.

Yes Geoff....she says drinking wine & not typing straight....

BTW off to see Ken Dodd in Feb! Just seen Milton Jones on celeb Mastermind - he'd be fun to go & see too.

Now to think of sensible, do-able resolutions for me garden related. J.

I think have just done a daft thing . Had started to put all the OOD/old seeds into the kitchen compost bucket. Dawned on me that they wouldnt all be killed as my bin wont get hot enough. So fished out as many as could get & put into council food waste caddy instead.  Wonder if the wormery would like the bucket contents instead? I then add that compost, as an accelerator, to my bin no.1 to continue the proccess. Still I bet in 1-2 yrs from now I get all sorts popping up in strange places.

Need to shift myself now to do meal. J.

Am not getting ironing withdrawal symptoms at all! Tumble & shake lately, except OH's shirts, oh & my cotton t-shirts, they're both much better with a proper iron.

I've been ruthless with the veg seeds. Big chuck out. Have just told OH when me & daughter next decend on little house, after her exam, shall need the local Wilcos for a big seed stock up!

Anyway, if all goes to plan OH can dig over a new veg patch at daughter's & do them there...... I wish. I shant be digging out any more new beds here, nor there.

I've just had a tree choc, to add to the last of the crisps......oh heck, my jeans..... J.
