Happy Mothers Day.

Posted: 31/03/2014 at 18:56

2015 Mother's Day will fall on Sunday 15th March.

I have decided I will plant some special and unusual daffodil bulbs which will hopefully flower at the right time! I like 'pink pride' at the moment, if a more lilac shade is available I'll go for that as it's mum's favourite colour.

Hi all, just home and noticed one of my rhododendrons has managed to burst itself into bud. 

Must look up wiegela so I can decide where to put it - borrowed it on a permanent basis from sister's yesterday, she can visit anytime.


Happy Mothers Day.

gardenjeannie, thank you sharing your heart and experiences with us. I still thankfully have my mum. Your mum and nanna will be looking down from the stars with joy at what a lovely mum you are to your boys, they will be so proud of you. All mums want to live up to their own mums after all my mum will always be the best mum in the world and so will yours. For 12 years you have been too, and you are the best mum in the world to those boys. If I could wrap you a gift I would sent you strength and the confidence to see what a wonderful person you are.

Morning. Not sure if im awake yet, I'll let you know in a bit

Did you remember to turn your clocks back?

Posted: 30/03/2014 at 20:55

I put the clocks forward before I went to bed including my phone, which then proceded to put itself forward an hour again at 2am - hence I was up at old time 5.30, instead of 7.30 new time (old time 6.30) if you follow, I lost 2 hours not one! 

Off to bed now  

Might try the same trick when the  clocks go back and get 2 hours extra lie in!

HI everyone, bit of a hectic day with relaxing good company inbetween rushing about. Took mum to church and got our daffodil posies, sat in the church garden where dad's ashes are (1 year ago today we lost him). Set sat nav for wrong address to sister's, got there on time and had wonderful lunch. A few plants jumped all the way from her garden into my car, clever things! Got lost on way home (no battery in sat nav). More rushing about at home but think I'm done now. 

The plants i 'stole' are pulmonaria, something called lords and ladies and a weigela.

Morning all. Happy mothers day to some of you.
I managed to loose 2 hours sleep this morning!!!!! I set my clocks last night including my phone which is my alarm. Got up and ready for FIL to take son swimming while I visit my mum. My phone had also done its own thing overnight! Only checked phone and didn't look at clocks until after we had breakfast an hour too early! So so tired! Couldnt settle to sleep last night and was up quite late as well. Feeling sorry for myself now. OH will laugh his socks off, and be happy that I can't live without him (he's away atm).

I have a birthday this year so what are ŷou going to get me?

Mike - happy birthday for 28 Dec, but for now go to sleep, we've got an hour less of it you know! Sweet dreams. Ok, yes , me too, good night.
