Jean where do you want to go to? I always think that non essential journeys are fool hardy in these conditions.

Geoff the seeds will not arrive for a week and you promised milder conditions

I can definitely do chairs but will leave washing up to Geoff as he needs the practise

I thought that he had had a couple of close calls in the last few years, January is a cruel month.

I have been inspired by the clematis lady and ordered some clematis seeds, some other seeds popped into the basket too

I have been good and cleared the snow off my car for tomorrow, roads look fine here. I also popped to Tescos which is now fully stocked so I bought a few treats, crumpets and chocolate chip cake.

I am a fan of a bone china mug.

Bjay are we all invited

Pam those Irises are lovely, makes me feel that spring is just around the corner.

Glyn sounds like a sensible plan to me.

I am actually planning to do some work today, otherwise the following days will be quite messy trying to catch up.

I might even clear my car of snow

Geoff will we be able to sow some seeds then?

I have one that is 2 years old and has yet to flower. I was told that they needed to get established before they would flower so I am hoping that this may be the year. 

Two warnings, the first one is that slugs love them and the second one is that their roots are like octopus tentacles, so you need quite a large area to grow them in.

The good news is that I got a text at 6.40am to say that they had closed the school, luckily I was able to go back to sleep, mainly because I had slept so badly. It is like dodgems driving here at the best of times so the idea of doing that journey in the icy conditions was making me very nervous.

I did feel for Bjay.

Hello Sue 

Becks, I would not be happy either  can you stretch it back when it is damp or has it shrunk?
