We have loads of old tapes too. Mostly things we recorded and kept because it was interesting. Cuddlies went in a table top sale. Still hard to sell though.

OK Forkers advice needed. I have a lot of leaves to clear, I have the rakes but are leaf blowers a good idea or a waste of space and money?  We do have quite a lot of leaves. Whatdo you all think?

Morning all sorry i'm late - swimming morning. Told today I'm much improved - didn't sink once 

I look foreward to mushroom of the day Gary.

Found some at bottom of rroad and neighbour was convinced they were field mushrooms but neither of us had the courage to try in case they weren't!

we have decided that in days of yore if a lot of different mushrooms were eaten then fairies were probably seen quite often!!

When I worked it felt like a different life. I call it my previous life. Found it took a while to get used to not being ruled by the bell though.

Don't think about it much now.

Gardening is much more fun -planning, getting rid of stress, shopping for it etc

What's for tea?

We also buy where we can get quality at a reasonable price. I use the garden as much as I can - Curly kale time now I think. I use local butcher/greengrocer because food is good and if you don't use them you lose them. We are also on a fixed budget 

What's the weather like in your area?

The Hills (Malvern) are in sharp relief today - good sign for no rain!!

Hope you get some of this soon shrinking violet

I've tried gumtree and wine gums and wine. Quite like wine. Grown out of wine gums, gumtree was quite successful

I have made toad in the hole with onion, and I often put herbs in the batter, but not  with bacon lardons. Will try it next time I make it.

Tonight spag bol and WW fromage frais with fruit. Had enough of apples!

When we were getting ready to move I sold loads of books using Amazon. Raised enough to pay for about 3/4 of greenhouse.

Have stayed in mostly, plans to look after clematis didn't materialise. Did dash out and raise a large crock pot off ground though

Made a loaf of bread, by hand, not tasted yet , too warm. Testing in case bread maker is on the blink. 

Are we having a guess the asda delivery time again? - 5 16
