Thanks Ol, son did put himself between us with arms outstretched to stop us, well not me as I said not a word! Told him she was tired and grown ups forget not to shout. Will look at bench tomorrow, I was after one on amazon or ebay last year so will look that up too for price etc

Hope all plants cosy and mr frost skulks off without doing any harm.

Nice to see you Woody.

Night everyone, catch up tomorrow but busy day expected.

Have to agree fairy and chicky. OH not home to moan to until later. Had to leave son to watch tv while I went to cool down in, guess where, garden. Trying not to lower myself to 'not speaking' and instead rise above, ignore, under the carpet, move on, I don't forget though. Thank goodness for gardens. Miracle workers!

Thanks kef. Was in two minds. Glad you found OH ring.
Verd hope four mum enjoys church and continues to improve.
Fairy, im not far from PDs and need some fence painting...pretty pleeease
Panda, might need a loan of that smile, sounds like its working for you
Clari, how's the new diet introductions going?
Tired after a rubbish day at work and a right old rollicking from mil - in front of vulnerable son who I spend half my life staying calm around!- (it'll pass she's just miffed about nothing and wants attention) inexcusable though yelling at me. Heyho.

Kef, does house insurance cover his ring? when I lost a diamond I ended up with a new ring. Sentiment had to go out if the window though.

Lily, my hydrangea P.  is also a dead stick, but not given up entirely, still green to the scratch test! it's now been swamped by an aquilegia so may not get to see much sunlight!

Sinks will plant up nicely OL. yep, another envious one here.

Now just to let you all know - I counted 8 not 7 plants that KEF bought!  I got half as many (and moaned a lot about money holding me back), but got two fab freebies courtesy of jardin a la kef. Gunnera which I've done my best to make a moist place for, planted in a shower curtain (don't ask!), so excited about it. And also some Chinese lanterns, physalis, so looking forward to them as well. 

OH put new fence post in,(wind damage) only trampling one tiny shoot, so not bad. I had the job of painting - don't think I'll get that job again!

Lots of other bits n bobs done as well.
