Good morning 

Clari glad you are prepared for the snow   Your efforts worked instead of 0C overnight we have had 5C and no frost 

Does anyone remember doing a little chant were you were a child, along the lines of Snow, snow faster ally ally aster 

Dove hope your meet up is fun.

Don't know what the cunning plan is for today maybe a walk, or HW  Maybe save the HW until we get snow 

Have a good day everyone & TGIF for the workers

The National Rose Society books. Need new home.

Edd that is a lovely collection I have some of the editions that were my dad's along with other rose books & pamphlets. I discovered he had written notes in the back of some of them about and which he'd grown, grafted and shown.  Please check yours in case there are some precious snippets in them.

Washing fleece

Posted: 04/12/2014 at 19:07

I have to disagree the call out charge (and likely additional costs due to inappropriate use) to unblock a pump is more costly than new fleece. I would not risk it. Even if you do you'd have to put your washer through an empty hot wash to ensure it was fit to put clothes in.

Matty you keep thinking about that coffee table clearing wag 

Not had time to be here much today, preparing for the big chill 

Panda I thought the Vale of York was blinking bitterly cold over the last few days. 

Today has reached 6C and now dropping rapidly 0C tonight and -2C tomorrow night.

Brugmansia has it's fleece coat on in the GH and all terracotta pots now all stashed away. I'm so not looking forward to the cold weather even if it does kill the whitefly on my kale & chard. They are even threatening us with snow 

Done the SM run, well stocked up with lager and wine just in case the roads are bad. Also got needed provisions   mini cheddars, nuts and crackers and some Maltesers

Catch up with you all in the morning, hope all have a nice evening 

It's my birthday

So much has happened since I last looked here. 

I'm so sad and upset for so many, life is so unkind to people who do not deserve it 

Only practical idea I have and it might be naff is Lyn I wonder if you could use a plastic shower curtain as a slide sheet for your mum. I cut one up and used it to protect my car seat and to swivel dad around so I could get his feet out of my car 

My thoughts are with each and everyone of you x

Washing fleece

Posted: 04/12/2014 at 17:19

I've washed some before, in the summer outside in a trug and rinsed with the hose & pegged out to dry. I wouldn't put in the washing machine in case they fall to bits and block your washer pump
