A Senior Moment.

Posted: 22/08/2014 at 08:18

Someone in this house has had a senior moment and it isn't me. The jar of marmalade has a Hellman's mayo lid on it, no wonder I couldn't find it, thankfully no mayo on the inside of the lid, currently no mayo in the house. We don't have mayo for breakfast or marmalade for dinner.

Fairy I had some of the Golly badges, have you mentioned to biggest little fairy what you scoffed? Maybe get some for an evening when no one wants to cook 

Also remember that Vesta beef curry brought me out in a hot sweat  taste buds have either matured or died in later years.  

Drooping cucumber leaves

Hi gatehill have you examined the stem to make sure it isn't damaged if it's okay I would remove the yellow leaves and water less, they don't like sitting in wet conditions. There are many reasons why cumbers wilt but I've only experienced it when I've re-potted them.

A huge garden arbour decided to take a walk down from Mum's lawn to the gates but decided to stay there as the big gate was padlocked and it couldn't squeeze itself through the small entry gate. It took three men to carry it back up the steps to the lawn!  Could hardly tell my aged Mum that it had blown there    weeks of worrying about burglars followed even though house was alarmed.

My outdoor variety cherry ones in pots ripened early and have been lovely, they are still maturing but no new flowers, looking wind swept and battered, even though in a sheltered place.  

The GH ones are slow to ripen and it's been that chilly today that the autovent hasn't even opened  I have opened the door to ventilate but closed it again at 5pm as it was only 14c in GH.  Think summer has done in S.Yorks.

I had one called Summer Nights that was lovely, purchased from local GC.  Sorry not any help other than it's name.
