Hello again

New Tv sounds good. We only have very small and medium size. Becks I think I would wiggle some wires to. Just tried to do quote and failed dismally

I also like to bash things with a little hammer, also works if not electrical

Finally planted bulbs. in bottom of box found pack of gladiolus Byzant??? so popped them into shrub pots that are long and thin.

Next door but one have just had a very large delivery of shale. Wonder what they are up to now?

Other stuff - charcoal burners are doing their stuff on the hills.

Those T-shirt adverts in the corner are really weird, there's a hamster now!!


how to feed an orhcid without keeping it in water??

Recently, for a couple of months I decided to only watch Brititsh programmes . It is really hard. we  have freeview. Although that experiment os over I find that I watch far less american

Wind outside is very cold but there is still a bright sun.

What you need is a cash buyer, chain free Geoff. Far less hastle.

It's looking at your home through other peoples eyes that is hard. Try to do that yourself, feedback is good, 

Sunny here so am going out to plant remaining bulbs  into flower pots that I can then , when foot better, sink pots into ground. Will sit on a chair with big bag of compost and a load of pots and see how many I can do.

Christmas potatoes are still looking healthy, not felt around for the crop yet though.
