Lottie, as I cannot understand most of the up to date Forkie thread reading back numbers would be a bit like turning my Sons manure heap, no noticeable gain.

I do not do downhearted Insomnia just getting out of bed the wrong side at times.
At this moment in time we are back to clear sky and sunshine so are we getting it all in one day I ask?
Knowing our local weather I sit back and wait at the moment with a cup of tea and a biscuit, Omelette for tea so the biscuit is allowed.

You do feel a bit bereft when you are locked out. Frank.

And not good news Insomnia, I woke up to clear sky and sunshine, the Primroses were smiling at me and all was well with the world, apart from the thread would not work.
Half an hour ago the window cleaner came and did a good job washing everything in sight including the conservatory, as he walked out of the drive it went dark and now we have a snowstorm.
Methinks I should go back to bed and get up the other side side.

Thank you one and all it is working now and I did nothing, it must have been them.
War and peace is usually the length of my mobile phone texts, or so my daughters tell me. that predictive text drove me up the wall and I cannot speak the shorthand text speech they use so have to put up with it.
Reading the weather from last year does nothing for my blood pressure.

Thanks again Frank.

Help, can anyone tell me why I cannot get past the first ten pages of the weather thread.
I signed out and back in, changed my password and still only the first ten pages come up.

Any ideas.

Ooo-er wonder what happened to the quotes above??!!

Snow all gone, showery, light breeze, about 5c.

"Gremlins" Jeannie, I hit the blue quote button that appears on the right hand corner of the box when you move the cursor over it then on the quote marks on top of my reply box, it works. As to what is under a kilt, hairy legs with knobbly knees big feet on the end wrapped in boots gaiters and hose tops plus a tiny dirk "err" knife thin-gee I mean stuck in hose top. If they got stroppy we pulled our bayonets out much longer and much more dangerous, or so I was told.

Our snow has also gone a quick shower sent it on its way, bitter cold now though.

Bunny it is never my turn for snow even though pictures exist of me sledding down the steep banks behind my childhood home covered with the stuff, at least we did have seasons back then, "whatever happened to seasons" I ask.
Jeannie "when did Scotsmen wear blue kilts"? What was under the kilt may have been blue and the bonnets they droned about on the hillsides were blue, how I wished them over the border, we lads in trews would give them three rousing choruses of Lily Marlene to wind them up. A few pints and a fight usually sorted it out, is Stirling Castle any warmer yet.
The snow is not giving here and it is getting colder actually it looks like more on the way.

Stockton on Tees sunshine blue sky some puffy white cloud, I can see the Hills clearly "oh and Snow"???
The North winds shall blow and we got the snow, remember that form my school days and always in February my birth month, one reason I do not go in for early seed sowing we know it is a waste of time up here.
Have to go out to the shops, the car will need clearing and defrosting, now is the time I feel like slinging all the garden stuff out of the garage and putting the car in.

Blueberry now you know that after years of experience I do not bother, birds or field mice probably got your onions, you would not see them do it.
I do put a few broad beans in pots on the staging of the greenhouse for an early crop although they turn out not to be all that early as sowing them later gets me a crop almost the same time.
Your greens need light and we have not had a lot this year, a touch of sun and they will noticeably grow, no sun and they just stand still.
You do not say where you are in the North East we just sit and wait, sow as soon as we get some light and the odd day of sunshine which most February's does not happen, Patience my friend.
