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.

Ah, windowsill propagator then?

Have sorted the flower seed packets & have a nice long list....

Vegs next- have already chucked out all the bean seeds, well into the compost bucket, as they were all well OOD. I know that BF says they'll keep for ages if stored correctly in airtight containers, but clean slate 'n all that this time I think.

Am actually enjoying SoM. J.

That's good Bjay.

This yr is the first for ages where we havent had e-cards. Yes, they're fun, but not quite the same somehow.

Yes I know am tempting fate re boiler, but engineers still to finish off so if it starts up again....J.

Hi Norm, if you've not managed to move the greenhouse, re lack of base, then you could get an inexpensive windowsill propagator to be going on with & also make your own better version later on! Just a thought...

BTW not a peep out of the boiler for ages now. At least I can stop waiting for it to start......

Back to seed sorting. J.
