MrsG hugs. Have a chill weekend.

Woody my Dad used to show vegetables and I've trying to remember what it was that I used to have to "polish" with milk to make them shine , was it onions? I was only a nipper  If the judge laughs at TT  I'll come around and slap him, no I won't it's a bit far we'll send Gardengirl

OL very poor stock control no vino for a Friday night

Bekkie what are you like ?  You'll turn into a chocolate orange biscuit.  I'm not surprised no chips for you ...but yeah vino sounds good

Hi all.

Archie guess your lovely grandaughter won't let you make Bombay potatoes from Teddy's friends

Yviestevie lovely photo, I remember one sibling getting her first shoes, she preferred to eat/ suck them  and when she had to wear them she cried. Must remind her of that she only 45.

Woody good luck at the show, I know plenty of volunteers to scoff your tart T.

Good to hear from you Fairy hope all is well and less hectic for a while

Weeding done at M's, huge storm didn't appear so got stuff done. Any money it will chuck it down tomorrow as sibling is due to do some gardening up there

Bekkie I hope you aren't scoffing biscuits.

Fidget too late I have Reacher for the afternoon  Just starting Never go Back, had to save it until I'd read A Wanted Man and took a while to get I was too mean to pay full price, finished that at silly O'clock this morning.

Sending breeze to those roasting in work

Is it too early for a lager?  Suppose so but if I drink more water I'll rob my body of nutrients lol  We have Greek temperatures and If I was in Greece it would be 15.23pm  and I did get up very early  No I suppose it isn't really beer o'clock yet

Supposed to be 22C today it says so at the top of this page  It's already that in the shade.  

Watering done & washing on line, now time to sit outside and pod peas

Clari glad toms doing well

Stacey 3am

Dove I bet it will be warm on the bus

Icecream anyone ? Bit too early I suppose, might have to eat peas.


Posted: 17/07/2014 at 08:27

Verdun that was the worst one ever  Glad tooth sorted Chicky as ice cream is needed in hot weather

Hugs Woody.

Good morning it's going to be a scorcher today, hope we don't get Dove's temperatures from yesterday 

I need to get my watering done and the sun brollies out, I think today will be a rest day. Saying that I think I've already had my rest I was awake at 5am and have been in conservatory reading so I didn't make any noise and wake weary OH.

I've looked back and don't think we heard from Clari, or if Chicky got her tooth sorted.

Hope the salt mines are okay for everyone

Hi all, mixed posts, jam, compost, exercise, salt mines. Plus cute Kermit  don't let the snake get him Dove

Fidget they are Cucino F1 grown them for last few years in GH, produce plenty until end of Sept'.
