Waiting for cheese on toast yum!!

OH smoked very heavily, then 25 years ago he just stopped, he is still having health problems from it, but then again if he hadn't stopped he wouldn't be here!

Oh dear Lyn

A warning to everyone who has smoked I think!

I hope she is kept comfortable and that you and she have all the support that you need. {{{{}}}} (hug)

Good Day

Great adventure Puncdoc - need lots of woollies though!

And Mum must be much better if she's thrown you out 

My good news is that daughter and partner have walked away from that house, there own decision so I am 'not to blame' we are very relieved.

I don't iron - with 3 school kids and an OH all requiring shirts I suddenly thought one Sunday - What am I doing?? so stopped and now only do essentials for instance if there is a special occasion. Quite easy to hang washing up, fold it etc and get minimum of creases - like Lyn


Rotten weather day - I think I may order some plants

Morning All

When I had the tumble I was in France. We went to a hospital and the difference was that here you get wash your hands with gel because of MRSA etc, in France the first thing we saw in the A&E was a big filing cabinet full of face masks and gloves and the warning that if you were attending and had been in Africa use them on entry!!

That was beginning of september (a month ago)


Thought we were going shopping - still waiting

The more I think about it the more I think NO. Thursday the decision will be made I think. Tomorrow I'm going shopping and will try not to think about it.


Night all

Begonia tuber storage

Posted: 07/10/2014 at 13:20

I overwinter my begonias ; first I let the compost pots dry out as much as possible then I lift then and clean off as much compost as possible. Wrap the corm in newspaper and in put in a single layer in a cardboard box, usually with a layer of newspaper underneath and one on top. Then put in frost free garage.

I do check a couple of times to make sure they are still healthy
