Wartime Farm

Posted: 26/10/2012 at 15:42

Well that's it then, the end of the Wartime Farm series.

Funnily enough although it tended to be a bit weak in places, I shall miss it.

Didn't fancy that potato pie, we really are very luck today to have anything in the food line we fancy provided we have the money to pay for it. I was only 2 when the war ended but can remember rationing, although I never remember going without anything. We always seem to have plenty to eat, my mother was obviously a good manager, but then it's like they say, what you've never had you've never missed.

I have still got my dentity card along with quite a lot of bits and bobs from that time that my mother kept.

Do you think they have gone as far as they can go with this type of programme or will they come up with a spin off.? We will have to wait and see

Chris.

I've just taken a load of old videos to the tip, it's just no worth the effort of trying to get rid of them. Still holding on to Starwars, though, don't know why, just can't bare to part with them. I think we still have a video player somewhere in the loft

I don't eny you the boiler job Jo. We are upsidedown at the moment, you just don't know what to do with everything, but it will be worth it when it's done, so I keep telling myself.

What's for tea?

Posted: 26/10/2012 at 11:25

I won't be cooking tea this evening, we are having fish and chips from the chippie.( needs must, we are having some plastering done)

I buy whatever I can from the independent shops, but use supermarkets as well especially if they have things that are close to their sell by date. It doesn't matter how much money you have it makes sense to buy good quality at the lowest price. Well that's what I was taught. Surely there is room for everyones opinion?

Sorry if anyone is offended

Good morning folk.

Hope all are well

The plasterer arrived prompt at 8 this morning, so it's all go at the moment, should be finished in one day. We have to go out the front door, round the front and in the back door to get to the kitchen, good job it isn't raining, but at least we have got a small sitting room to use.

There is fungi appearing all over our garden at the moment, some from the compost used to pot up plants before planting out and some from wood we have used to edge veg garden beds. They are all different and interesting in their own way.

I seems a bit quiet here today, where is everyone? are you still in bed Geoff

See you all later, cyberly speaking...

We have got our polling cards too. There is a website you can look at.

Another government initiative to complicate matters now doubt.

Just been to look for polling cards, but as we are upside down decorating, can't find them

Definately brighter here today and dry. and mild.

OH getting the last bit of hedge trimmed to add to the pile of cutting nearly swamping the bungalow. Good job it's nearly 5th November, them we can have a big bonfire without hopefully annoying anyone.

Thanks for that Gary and Geoff, now I know

£10 wont get you far Geoff, but perhaps you needs are minimal, my OH thinks I'm the bank, he only rarely goes to the hole in the wall, but always seems to think my money supply is endless, I wish.

bjay, I always give my clematis a dressing of sulphate of potash after I prune them in February, that seems to do the trick. 15 clematis will look great, I love them

Coffee time me thinks.

Good morning early birds.

Everyone seem to be up and at um this morning!.

Very dark and miserable here, but not cold, as yet, that's to come tomorrow apparently.

We could get a snow shower over the next couple of days, wonderful.

I will be going to buy paint, and all the DIY paraphernalia later today so will be parting with quite a bit of cash no doubt

Something has certainly had a go at that mushroom, a good picture though Gary.

Nothing else planned today.

Have a good one.
