hot composting

Posted: 12/03/2014 at 16:45

Thanks Edd, I think I will put the contents of the black 'tardis' in the new as it never quite turns out right. Also as it's new I can line the new one with something to start with. New garden waste can go in the old bin. Does this ound the right way of doing things? I've never used any thing I've taken out of the tardis just ended up taking it to the tip so all advice taken on board.

(sorry Lisa if I've jumped in there)

Sure are among friends steve.

Busy this morning, oh look at the time this pm also. Step son off ill today (feel sick, tummy ache),  (yeah right!) so I took him to docs, got gaviscon, wouldn't go back to school, so he's been sat in car while I do errands all day. Booked him in for blood tests but sure he's ok, sorry never went to sympathy lessons at school. Hope your LO ok Stacey. Took SIL party food shopping for party at my house on Sat, brother's 60TH. Then my own shopping! Got veg ready for roast dinner. Washing on line.

Hope to get out now to chop some laurels down as far as I dare without OH having heart failure! Waiting for mum to arrive on bus and son to get home from school.
