Hooray, Hooray 

The dalek compost bin has just arrived. Have been waiting weeks. Could probably fill it with the garden debris been saving invarious areas.

That makes my 3.

It was only £13 and is a 330L one. Special deal with the County Council just had to put post code in to see if qualify. Several Counties are doing it.

Finished now for day 

Pleased you are back in Southampton Geoff.

Loved the doggy vid

Who said they had seen a pair of cool wellies?Can't remember. as I came inside from garden, trousers dripping wet, socks soaked, feet cold I thought I really must break out my new pair for tomorrow. They are red with pink flowers on

Anyway cleaned and filled bird feeders, potted on some white foxgloves, brought some very young lavender into greenhouse. OH brought in the other olive and a bay in a pot. They have grown well this year so wre a bit heavier than last!!!

What we have here is in fog, wet, damp, miserable. Rain gauge this morning showed 1mm rain. more precipitation, than actual rain just a lingering fog.

we haven't seen the hills apart from a couple of hours on Sunday.

Hi everyone.

Hope all backs, lurgii,and slip ups are improved. Sorry about Kate. Just taken me ages to catch up. Interesting about the word 'lurgy' OH says he's not surprised about its origin

Really damp, murky, ground is wet, dog and cats are wet, My hair looks a mess. Oh for a bit of bright sun, even a few minutes.

Loved the mushroom photo

Not been able to get any wallflowers but have seed for next year.

What is a cobeae or what evr. Will kook it up.

It's difficult to find gardening jobs that can be done in this weather.

Where is Nigel?

I am never in my garden without dog and cat. Sometimes they get wroing side of door ie inside and go frantic to join in the work in the garden. Would not be same without them as I am sure it is fir everyone else with pets.

As for a longer programme -hear hear!

What's for tea?

Posted: 22/10/2012 at 17:29

chicken stir fry with noodles. Followed by fromage frais with fruit.

 OH does nearly all the cooking as had ashoulder op last year and although fine he likes to. He also makes bread - in a machine - but having trouble getting a good rise we think it's quality ofbread flour so experiments going on at moment to check if we are right

Bake off special tonight. looking forward to it.

This afternoon I also have sorted, cleaned and tucked up for winter my begonias that had been drying off.  went to throw away some clematis cuttings but discovered some healthy looking roots but no top growth so have potted them up and left them in garage to do whatever they want

Haven't had porridge for ages. Like it with dried fruit sprinkled on it

Magistrate court is, Crown court isn't

Why is it that vaccy called animal designed for animal hair aren't spent over an hour this morning unwnding, cutting, swearing, even using tweezers to get mine working again. Dog hairs.

Spent afternoon winter tidying/clearing my end of the garage so that when i need to I can hook up my propagator. mostly flower pots I had just thron intherre and packed some seeds I had saved.

Back aches (perhaps its the weather!) and I am grubby. Now for a cup of tea.

Pleased you survved the great golf slip up Geoff
