Morning All and Happy Mothers Day to all Mums out there, hope you get lots of flowers and choccies. Going to see my M at about 11 ish.

Didn't realise my last posting would cause such a debate, my 5 mins of fame.

Not a very nice morning here, snowy drizzle if there is such a thing.

I've been to Bunny in Nottinghamshire, near to where I used to live, a very nice little place, or it was when I last visited a long time ago.

Thanks for your comments on HP printers, I now have 2 full ink cartridges for the Kodak, friend has one so will give them to her. Hopefully I will have more luck with this new one.

Have a nice day.

Geoff. - I've ordered a HP all in one printer, the same brand as I had previous to this load of rubbish, had it for 8 yrs, had the Kodak for 2 and I've never been happy with it. only got the cheapest model as I don't use it a lot, but it's handy to have. Should be delivered by Wednesday.

Daughter and partner came to see us yesterday evening with MD flowers, a lovely bouquet of roses and lilies + card. They can't come tomorrow as they are away for the weekend..

Nothing on TV to watch, will have to see what we have got recorded.

What's the weather like in your area?

Hi everyone.

Late checking in today, been really busy.

Went to garden centre, rained persistently all day, cold too, so pleased to be home, bought some seeds and summer bulbs, and  lilies, could have bought more but OH was lurking in the background ,so had to use some willpower.

Sausage, lambs liver for OH egg and chips for tea, need a comforting meal.

Printer packed up. Think the print head has gone. and I have just renew both the black and colour cartridge so not happy 

Anybody got a Kodak printer?, I have been doing a bit of research, and apparently they aren't very reliable. So new one ordered from Amazon, not Kodak, as it is nearly as expensive to mend.

I had a belated BD present of 2 Little White Pet roses when I met friends on Thursday, that was a lovely surprise, and a pack of notelets, that makes me 4 packets of 20 in stock now, will have to recycle some, kind thought but enough is enough.

Hope you all enjoy your tea tonight some scrummy things on the menu.

What really bugs me is when you buy a birthday card or anything  small that isn't pre wrapped and is completely unprotected, and the assistant asks you if want it in a bag.  If you have other shopping it can get dirty or if you put it in your hand bag, it gets damaged, and at the price they are and the number I buy, need I say more. I suppose they are told to ask by the powers that be, but a little common sense would go a long way.

We did some impromptu shopping when on holiday a few weeks ago and bought a carpet runner for the conservatory, baring in mind it was a terrible day, snowing and raining and we were dripping wet, I was asked if I wanted it in a bag.Needless to say yes was the answer. I always take my own bag to the supermarket, try to do my bit there.

Sue H -- I have been on the other side of the till too, at a large department store, and know from experience that the public are not always pleasant.

Here endeth my rant for today

I have trouble in reverse. To get things to fit at the top, they frill out at the bottom, so it looks as if I'm wearing a tent. Oh for the perfect figure.

Baking sounds good Bunny.

We always grow some runner beans in a large pot as well as a row in the garden so you should have a good result from them, also carrots as we seem to always get carrot root fly and if you grow them in a pot at least 18" off the ground this can help the problem, so I'm told We have had good results in the past. Best of luck anyway.

Hate to say this but the weather is set to get colder over the weekend. - 4c forecast here at night.

Good Morning All.

Missed yesterday so hope you will update me with any major developments

It's a drizzly morning here as well, but mild. Meeting some friends for lunch today for a catch up, will no doubt be talking about all our ailments, we have all got to that age.

No frogs chorus here, a bit early for us, but frogs have been sighted in the pond, so hopeful.

I've spotted slugs in the borders, hiding under the dead leaves, which have now been cleared, so hopefully the birds will get a few of the little blighters that are left. no doubt they will be back with a vengence.

Have a good day everyone.
