Hi Alan, I started my 4th off last week. Standing on soil, thankfully I put some bricks around the edges to give stability until it gets more stuff in as it's in a windy place.

I forked the soil base and put some half rotted compost from another dalek in the bottom ( worms included   ) added kitchen green waste and plants leaves and soft cuttings & cardboard in layers, then added some activator. Sometimes I get the stuff that neighbour has cleaned out from their G pigs, but non on offer  so used activator.  I'll keep doing this along with some grass cuttings, but not too many of those.

Artjak is our master composter so I'm sure she'll add to what I've said  

It's my birthday

Gardenmaiden, agree about best character and found Spiros funny, loved the bit when housekeeper had her back molar removed on the day of dinner party  Reading as a youngster I skipped most of the wildlfe bits but now find them fascinating.

Runny did you read the follow on ? Toujours Provence not quite as amusing as a Year, but entertaining

Morning folks, wet & very windy here so I stayed in bed, considered staying there for the day but don't want pressure sores. Forecast is for it to get much worse over the next few hours

Relief to have the car back Dove

Archie when you've done your decorating there's plenty to do here.

Hi Bill, sorry to hear MrsBill not well, I also hope you don't get a repeat of last years winter. Really good to have you back with us

I learned a new household tip yesterday  If you don't bother dusting you can use the coffee table as a message board.

What's the best book you've EVER read ?

Had to read it at school aged 11 but didn't appreciate it at that age, have read it many times since and always makes me smile. Gerald Durrell, My family and Other Animals.

Do enjoy the Thomas Harris books, Silence of the Lambs etc.

The book that took me the longest to read was Solzhenitsyn's Cancer Ward, to this day I don't know how I feel about that one.
