Just the curry please Archie xx

Sadly, a lesson not learned!

Aww Yvie - I feel for you.  Do you think he maybe making the most of it to get out of gardening jobs?.   I hate anything flying about in the car but wouldn't abandon ship on the motorway.  A funny one was when my Dad had been to the tip and picked me up from the station and a snail was climbing up the rear window.

We lived in Nigeria for a few years and apparently if some locals ran over a snake they would pick it up and wrap it round the engine so that it would be cooked by the time they got home.  This was many years ago and told to my Dad by the owner of a garage.

Sorry - this does not help with the mouse problem

Good morning.  

Bill I'm sorry to hear you've still not got over the after effects of the flu.  You will probably improve with the weather.  Hope Mrs Bill is doing OK.  Keep in touch.

Glorious crocus' 1of7.  I will put a few hundred on my wish list for next year.  I only have a few straggly ones that have escaped OH's weeding with a garden fork

Lizzie what lovely pics.  Nice to see such enjoyment

DD - it certainly looks as though the flap is OK for coming in.  Have a lovely time at the wine festival and hope you're not the driver

Hope you're feeling a bit better this morning Dove.

Liri I wonder if the wren is just roosting in the compost bin or has designs on a centrally heated nest site.

Wintwrsong I have no idea how you can do so much.  I managed to cut back the cornus and take cuttings before I was driven in by the freezing wind.  You'll have lots of sitting time in the garden this year

Fidget I hope all went smoothly today with all the admin.

Rb, I managed to find the original welly nest post and will definitely be giving it a go.  Think I'll stick a bit of nesting material in to give them a start.

Lovely photo DD - although Charlie's wearing wellies he looks as happy as me when I manage to get two pairs of shoes.  Hope poor Marmalade settles down and becomes brave enough to use the flap.  What colour is he

Good morning Wintersong and Dove.  We seem to have a light sprinkling of snow this morning but the birds are singing their heads off

Dove if you are doing gardening and cookery books today I predict lots of sitting for a quick browse through most of them.  Hope you feel a bit better soon.

Lizzie what a shame about your grandson's abscess.  No wonder he's feeling so ill.  Ice-cream sounds a good way to go.

The forum was a bit odd yesterday and I lost a post when I eventually managed to load the page.  I gave up in the end.  Chicky thanks for letting us know about fairy

Rb I can't remember which way to wedge the welly in.  Is it toe up or heel up?  Wish I'd had salad for lunch

It really was there a few minutes ago Dove.  I've been wondering about fairy too.  Hope all is well with her and the girls and also with Frank. 

Your compost sounds really good Winter.  Mine takes about two years to be useable.  I really must turn it more often.

You sound as though you're cracking on Liri

Beaus  great idea about the welly nest.  I remember a thread about doing that from last year.  I haven't got a shower cap LilyP but a plastic bag will do till I can get another pair.  Have a glass of wine once you get back home.

Very wet and muddy here too Beaus.  I couldn't avoid the huge puddles and discovered my wellies have a leak.  Bekkie was cooking early - I was just talking about it. Glad you'll be able to have a rest at work

Glad OH is recovering well LilyP.  Have a good day and enjoy lunch.  Will there be cake
