Afternoon everyone

It has been a foul day here weatherwise - raining ,dark,gloomy..........I have finished wrapping all the childrens' christmas presents- just a couple more to arrive

Luckily our nephew is a plumber and heating engineer - he is going to pop in to have a look at the boiler - Barry is convinced it is a valve gone wrong .We have a lovely gas fire in the sitting room and an emersion heater so won't be cold or have no hot water

When our boys were small ( they are 47,45 and 44 now) we didn't have much money and there weren't car boots or ebay - I used to go and pay some money each week in the sports shop in the village  in the run up to Christmas to pay for a football kit for our youngest son who was sport mad. Middle son's music teacher helped us choose a trombone one year and I paid for that weekly till Christmas - this son is now an acoustics consultant  Our eldest son was into bird watching,stargazing and metal detecting so one year had a telescope,another year a metal detector

These days we only buy presents for our Grandchildren and try to keep to a budget - try being the word - I always go over as I love buying them presents

I always get a carrier bag full of goodies from youngest Son and DIL - all bought from car boots  They do buy me something really nice ,too

Congratulations on your news Lottie

I am a great great Aunt

Evening everyone

I have enjoyed reading all the poems - my brain doesn't work well enough to contribute

Washing machine last week - boiler didn't come on this morning  Barry is hoping it is just a new valve needed

I have been wrapping Christmas presents today - no gardening - yukky weather!!!

Many ,many years ago (30 years?) the co-op sold dinner sets that you could buy at a good price piece by piece when you spent so much on your shopping - I am still using some of the plates and bowls

Becks - I have been writing every month for about 2 1/2 years - they will probably get fed up with me soon - I do hope not though as I really enjoy it

TBH, Pam, I was a teeny bit disappointed.

I was expecting to see some photos similar to those that you'd posted around the time of your opening day.

On the front page of the paper it says things lile 'The best container in Britain' and 'Gardener of the Year'.

So I opened the paper - and there are lots of photos of gardens a bit like yours - I was looking through the fine print - perhaps you were using a different name.

Eventually, I did find an article written by Pam of Woking. Together with an avatar-sized photo of Pam.

Sorry  I hope I didn't mislead you somehow

We just write about what is going on in our gardens each month
