It's my birthday

Happy Birthday Yvie



Posted: Yesterday at 06:55

Good morning all

Have a good day at work Hosta and all the other miners

When we first moved into our house the previous owners just lived round the corner and their cat used to jump on our bedroom windowsill and miaow loudly to be let in

Hope our starlings have now fledged and vacated the eaves.  Dove you'll need to put up a 'robins only' sign.  That'll stop them

Market day here so will see if the plant stalls are any good

Clari, what a nightmare.  I bet a few words would flow in your boss's direction.

Shame I wasn't around to order an ice-cream lily but it sounds as though you had a lovely time.

Lizzie well done on your cooker sale and the result of not having to clean the oven. At least you are nearly sorted now.  Imagine if they had had to dig up all the concrete.

Winter you must be getting excited about your new car.  Lucky girl.  Wonky your garden looks a treat after all the effort you've put in.

I'm off to bed as my eyes are trying to close while typing.  Night all

Good morning all.

Pauline I hope you are now tucked up in bed and fast asleep.

Were you having nightmares about slugs that woke you so early Hosta?

Lovely rose chicky

Dove the tardis is looking really good and it will be so useful when a quick change of tool is needed.  Wonky I think you've done a great job on your planter - take no notice of the detractors

Glad you are having a lovely time Yvie.  Wish we could see a bit more of that sun.

Have a good, relaxing holiday LilyP.  I hope to be home at the weekend and see how the garden has grown.  Mum wants a trip to M&S this morning so is feeling more like herself.  SYL.

Good morning

Thanks for the kind thoughts about Mum.  I woke early and made a drink, taking Mum and Dad one and when they asked what time it was I said 6.30.  When I looked at the clock again with my glasses on it was only 5.30.  Still I've had lots of thinking time.

Shedlet day Dove.  Hope we'll be treated to a photo when it's in situ.  Wonky I hope you are able to lift a hammer again.  I'm looking forward to seeing the results of your project.

Well done with the greenhouse Gg

Hope you and the girls are refreshed and ready for today's adventures Panda.

Thanks for the good wishes re Mum.  She'll be chuffed when I tell her (Emmerdale addict).

KEF - how long is a piece of string?  I suppose it depends on how much sun, rain and warmth they get.

Wonky - How kind of OH to let you borrow his tools.  My OH told me he mended the central heating today by putting batteries in the thermostat.  Must admit I didn't know it had batteries either.  I'm the main DIYer as he's left handed.  Never come across a left handed screwdriver before

Oops, missed that - congratulations KEF.  Hope they're blue

Love the geese pic LirI - nearly as much as I like the one of Newman and Redford

Nice to hear of all the new plants and gardening that's been going on with you all.  Can't wait to see what's popped up in my garden (apart from weeds) while I've been away but will be a few days yet.  

Mum was allowed out of hospital today so is very happy to be home.  I'm happy not to have to do the journey to Aintree again, especially this weekend when the Three Queens event has been happening in Liverpool.  Nothing to do with Lily Savage - the cruise liners. The traffic has been a nightmare.

Have a good evening everyone.

Good morning Panda.  Bright and early start for you today.  Hope everything goes according to plan and that you all have a wonderful time.

It's my birthday
