Lily, those poppies are beautiful.  How long are they there for do you know?  We are going to try and fit in a weekend trip to London with the boys before the end of the year.  Glad you had a lovely day and happy belated birthday day 

Guess bulb planting  I did manage to look in on my chillies in the GH, still doing great and lots of chillies , but with walk in freezer lights to fix, an order to deliver (that was missed on Friday!), more admin and attempting some family time they sort of got forgotten.......again.

I read back earlier about Stacey, how is she doing does anyone know? Thinking of her and sending hugs if she is popping in xx

Morning all, I hope everyone is ok and I've not missed much.  It has been a hectic few weeks to say the least and by the time I got home and settled it has been quite late and I haven't felt like looking at a computer screen of any sorts!!  Also, I've not had a minute in the garden so felt a bit of a fraud on a Gardening forum!!!  Anyway, today I am going to plant my bulbs so felt I could pop by and say hello.  

I'm going to go back a few pages and trying and catch up in this week but won't be able to manage more than that

I forgot to say...Matty, do you like chutney?  I made a lovely pear and walnut chutney last year and could let you have the recipe if you want. Never made pear jam.

Hi everyone  Had a quick skim read back so. I hope I don't miss anyone, apologies if I do 

Sorry to hear so many parents, O/Hs and people are poorly or having difficulties.......hugs to all those that need/want them and cakes for anyone that would rather have cake, thinking of you all even though I'm not about.

Well, week 1 is nearly over and an eventful week it has been, but the good news is today's and tomorrow's sales are more than last weeks were and today's is the highest it is has been for over 6 weeks (the previous owner gave up we think)...... Result 

Anyway, off now, glass of wine and bed. Night all xx

Hi everyone  No time ti catch up sorry as off to bed, I just wanted to let you know I am still here but had a very busy (and stressful at times) couple of days and haven't felt like doing anything at all when I eventually got to sit down!!

Thinking of you all and all those with family problems and poorly relatives / friends. Apart from that I hope you are all well and healthy.

Catch up soon  Txx

Wow your garden is gorgeous Liri and I'm sure no-one would tell you off but we do have a garden gallery thread you can post on, nice to see a few pics on here though 

Just watching a GW, old one as I'm on catch up......very strange allotment just come on 

My boys had chicken pox when the youngest was 3 weeks old, they both got and I was amazed I didn't having recently given birth and had no sleep!!!  Eldest ended up with them in his throat and ears and had to go to A&E, not at all nice 

Verdun.....I'm glad you feel guilty, so you should
