Evening All

Just been on phone inviting ouselves to lunch at BIL next wednesday.. Food will be good, Think SIL is WW as well but she changes often so should be free of stuff like cream, cakes etc 

Never volunteer!

Night Jo

Wasn't there something in the depths of my memory that Green Shield Stamps were what became ARgos. Would be about nearly 40 years ago, as got my first set saucepans from Argos using green shield stamps!

I think they all huddle together for warmth in winter. Everyone needs a warm bed when it's cold 

What's the weather like in your area?

It reminds me we both need new passports and I need a bus pass - never had one before. Both need photos. When we moved had to have the new style driving license

School boat Inka? Sorry if everyone knows all this but i'm a fairly new Forker.

I went on a cruise and there was a grey whale but at that moment I was on wrong side of ship!! Just my luck. one day i will see them in the sea. It's on my list of ???? things to do before _____

Perhaps one day we'll all have to have our finger stained when we vote so we can't do it again. Was that in Iraq or somewhere?

Hi Inka. Amazing photo I know its not yours but do you see whales often?

Your dogs seem very laid back. Bit like mine - spread out in front of the fire making grumbly contented noises

Geoff am ignoring Barbie stuff. Very political!!! funny though

Was an interesting read Pam. Made mesearch for current GW. Eventually found under the settee.

Someone tried to teach me Bridge - they gave up! Must have been a 'rivetting' radio programme

I have 2 red currant bushes which were planted about a year ago. They did not fruit this year and I know they need pruning. My instinct is to leave them but I think I have read somewhere they need to be cut back now. I am new to fruit growing. When and where do I make the cut, please?

Well, Well, Well!!

Thanks fro pointing someone else in direction of that sweet pea thread geoff. Have read it, seen what i have done wrong and now will have to wait and see. Seeds have germinated though.

It is so cold outside. Just topped up bird feeders, tied up a slender rambler 'Malvern Hills'  (what else/) in case snow breaks branches, cut off tops from saved galdioli and trimmed dead leaves from my 2 small amaryllis. Now in for a warm and I think I'm going to light the fire 

Found it Pam, now to read it . Wanted to know about them to grow next year.
