Still not potted iris. One I think will put direct in ground as bed prepared and been waiting for it.

Had a very convincing e-mail today from Santander, had fsa stuff on it etc saying my account had been entered. OH said check so rang them.Apparently it was phishy one and had to forward it on - had ther insignia fsa details and everything. Be warned

Also good news daughter rang to say insurance settlement on her car crash injury - bad whip lash- has been settled and is more pennies than she thought. Horrible out there, fog seems to be thickening up but I must go. I may be some time!

Dry but really miserable again. Cannot see the Hills.

Blasted squirrels!

Somewhere on these threads I have seen that you can sprinkle nuts with chille. Perhaps bulbs? Squirrels hate it, birds don't notice it.

Our dog is very good squirrel chaser. Always wonder what i'll do if he catches one!!

I love ZD as well. Trying to find a suitable place for it. At moment all i can think of is to put it to grow up an old concrete washing line post about 8ft high. Would it be OK there?

Morning late with present mark this morning. 

Jist come back from swimming - today was encouraged to put nose in water and blow bubbles. As I have a thing about face in water was quite hard but did manage it a couple of times. did keep my chin under the water though that is progress to me

Bearded iris collection has come today that was in GW mag - more potting . Question should I pot and put in greenhouse (not heated) or pot and leave outside?

Last night I caught up on last weeks apprentice on iplayer, so still have to remember to catch up on yesterdays.

Had to buy tomatoes today, up to now we've been eating our own. Roll on next summer

See you all later

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!
