Wow 2ft is a long baby, did you have to cut the feet off her babygros? I had to with my son's his feet were so big!

Wow Kitty that was late. How big was she? I went to a mother and baby group with a lady who had given birth two weeks late. Her son was ten and a half pounds.

What a lovely day out Runnybeak.

What a nightmare journey LB. I admit I've not been to an Ikea. When my daughter started uni she wanted to pop to the Bristol Cribbs Causeway Ikea to get a few bits. Thankfully the car park was full. I bet it was nice to see your brother though, and you did buy want you wanted.

My whistling is loud but tuneless

Daisy I'm still blushing and I've been home an hour. Don't worry about "special" birthdays Daisy. I bet you don't look, feel or act your age. I don't, my inner me decided 24 was a good age and is happy staying so, l have never really felt properly grown-up. Anyhow all birthdays are special.

I always read this and the "soo" thread first, your chatter always makes me smile and often giggle. Just what a girl needs after a challenging day at work. As for the puzzles, l often get the actor ones correct, but the book title puzzles LB cleverly devises mostly leave me baffled. My brain doesn't get it, l wasn't much use watching Catchphrase on telly when l was younger either. But if you need help finding Wally or anything else hidden then I'm your gal.

Popped into Sainsburys on the way home, couldn't understand why some high school kids were smiling  and giggling at me, thought they must be ex pupils from work. Got home, started putting shopping away, Hubby comes for a nose to see what treats I'd bought, he starts laughing. One of the little darlings at work had firmly stuck a massive 'smiley face' sticker and a huge 'Great Work!' sticker on my butt!  Soo embarrassed😊.

Thanks Bob, I'm going to have a look locally to see if l can find one.

Buttercupdays , lucky you, all that the birds have gifted me is a few young brambles.😀

Thanks LB l did see that info, but only had a quick scan. I will have another look.

Thanks for the info Bob. I'm not looking to spend half that amount. It is going to be my birthday present from hubby, and it was his idea to get another tree, which was a shock , l didn't think he cared much for the garden at all but apparently he "misses seeing our tree from up the lane because he then he knows he's nearly home".

Thanks LB, l was hoping to choose an amelanchier that doesn't sucker at all if that is even possible. I did like the look of amelanchier "Bellerina". I do like the pinky hues of Robin Hills blossom. Sorry this is all new to me choosing a tree, l need all the help l can get.

Hi all. Does anyone have an amelanchier Robin Hill tree in their garden? I would like to know your experience , opinions of this tree, it's merits or faults. We took out a multi - stemmed lilac that was not doing well anymore. We now miss having a tree in the garden, the height it gave and somewhere to hang bird feeders. I would ideally like a single stemmed tree. Amelanchier trees always seemed to be one of the first trees recommended as a tree for a small garden. Any advice will be much appreciated.

Plant orders for 2017

Today received two agapanthus Twister plants . They are both healthy with lush green leaves and good roots ready to pot on. 

Bought some sweet pea seeds, a striped variety just for something different and Cuprani l saw recommended by someone on the forum. Have been gifted a DA Olivia Rose Austin rose and a hellebore Double Ellen Purple for Christmas. I'm not going to buy anything else all year, I'm really not.. I'm going to use up my old seed and make do.😉
