Chicky, mum said same about sound, thought it was just her. Oooops.
Forgot to say also a bit grumpy cos got migrainish head about 4.00 ( not sure its related to last nights vino but was ok until then).
Right back to entertaining mum and watching ep 3 first.!
Night all (may just pop back later).

kef do the pasta sauce but do rice or couscous with it, ok sounds wrong but it worked in reverse when son only wanted pasta so did curry and stew with pasta. I'll get my coat...well done getting such a lovely OH as well.
Tried so hard to get in garden today, rushed through chopping veg so could get out, im usually safe around knives. Not this time, sliced half my thumb off (ok yes of course I exagerate) but enought to stop me getting done what I wanted. Did however manage to plant one handedly the beginia mum had given me today. She wasn't please with the place I put it though! She brought the washing in and did all the after tea tidying. Nice having her here but not so relaxing as son having sleepover at her house. oh and we have to watch ep 3 Jamaica inn tonight as she didn't record it, we have not started wat hung our recording of ep 1 yet...

Have a good sleepover dove, my son was meant to have a sleepover at grandmas but instead she's having one here! No gardening done due to running about after the two of them!

Thanks Lily . Funnily enough my mum gave me a tiny bit of London Pride last week! She always had it in her gardens, not sure I'm keen but it's planted so we will see if I come to love it. If it's not in GCs I'll bet you can ask neighbours nicely and snaffle some of theirs.. Talking of which I'm off to fetch mum over soon so she can help with some potting on now I've got a shed load of compost.

Phoned David Austin Roses for advice how to train my generous gardener: I do nothing for now! (that is going to be really hard, I so want to attack the side shoots), just tie main stems to post and in Jan 15 then I can get the pruners out!

Not hugs I need Lily, feeling fine and getting out in the garden lots, just need cash if you'd be kind enough to send some I could get on with a bit more in the garden!

I'm not working today lily, OH is. Only 4 1/2 days work this month due to the fact I work Mon and Fridays only then take time off for appointments! Not good news for the GC!

Morning all. Head seems to be working fine, so far.
Still no sign of my cannas, or come to think of it my dahlias either. May need to buy ones ready grown from GC....hmmm need to start back down the cv sending off route. Bit late to follow in KEFs Easter resurecion footsteps, maybe whitsuntide wishing will work., can you dig some fence posts for my arches while your at it, OH working today.
Good luck to todays workers, and work hard out in the garden to the non workers!
