2 letters done , last one to go!! Methinks I may do a sort of 'round robin' after all next year & leave space to personalise it...... I only have a couple of e-mails still to do as well -smugsmiley!

Daughter planning to go to work..... Have told her I wont deadlock the front door, just in case...... She did give me her Advent choc today though. Remembered that OH had been feeling sort of queasy last week, when he got home. He's fine now, but makes you wonder...

Right, back to pen & paper.... J.

Wish I 'b' well knew... At least I know that am likely to get a wake-up call (!) tomorrow before my alarm is set to go off.

Right, am actually going to finish those cards/letters now!! Then I can post them on way down to hospital course tomorrow. J.

You see I did think Herod, but couldnt see how it could be a chocolate?

Daughter has eaten something, keeps snapping at me so must be feeling a bit better.... I've only had a snack type meal too, just didnt feel like cooking properly what with her being poorly & me being tired! Must plan a menu before I shop on Wednesday after hospital, again.......

The boiler has a new noise! Same solution though. Wonder if OH did phone manufacturer today? J.

Aww Maud, bighugs!

Geoff- completely stumped...

Becks- 3choc coins/decorations, a wiggly rubber worm, a pen that has several colurs- to use with the colouring book....

Nearly gave up shortly after going back out, but somehow had a 2cnd wind- no Gary- & carried on until about 3.30. Found 2 lots of slug eggs- now suitably disposed of! There's lots of signs of new life already there but in my case still a lot of clearing to do. I really must try & sort out some areas to be less labour intensive. Ideas buzzing around head, but wonder if will ever get sorted? J.

Phew am hot! well several layers, double gloves, hat, etc.... nice cuppa now.

The 1 compost bin almost full, leaf cage ditto & have even added stuff to council bin as was nearer to walk to!

Am actually going to cut back some of the stems of the fuschias in the big pots. Visible from house, totally frosted now & annoying me. I have several others in the borders which shall leave alone. Have cutttings too on porch sills.

Daughter has reappeared. Colour better, still doesnt fancy eating, but doesnt feel sick any more. Unlikely to be the noro virus as she had that couple yrs back & knows she just doesnt feel that bad. Just hope that I dont get whatever she's had/got! Have clinic appointment again this Wed.

Right, back out. BTW still thinking Geoff J.


Talkback: Slug-proof plants

Posted: 10/12/2012 at 12:26
Unfortunately one of my potted Hellebore Niger plants proved irresistable to the slugs this yr. It's just about starting to regrow.

I did however discover that crusts of soya/wholegrain type breads proved to be slug magnets! Put some down for the birds & everytime ended up going out & collecting loads of slugs!Better if damp/wet btw. J.
