Mary gold, I made my own, one large pot one medium and one small. Fill each with compost plant round the outside edge then place medium pot in centre and do the same. The small pot goes on top with one two or three plants in depends on size then place in sheltered sunny corner not forgetting to water and turn the whole assembly every day or so. My grand children ask every year, are we getting a strawberry mountain again this year, of course with a pea pyramid and green bean trellis, one way to get them eating greens.

I use my Dads cure for every thing squeezed lemon honey whisky topped up with hot water he used it on pigs geese the dog cat and us at the slightest whisper of a cough, it works you forget the cold in no time.

My mother was a dress maker tayloress she had a room full of patterns dummies and sewing machines though she preferred the old treadle singer, I quite often found myself draped in a part made coat or dress whilst she sorted some problem with the hang. it all came down to heavy bribes when the article was a dress, cross dressing definitely not my thing. Those old patterns would probably be worth a fortune today.

Dour and wet, that is just the weather. Sitting here sniffling the family cold which has gone around since Christmas finally caught up with me. No gardening today then.

Solid white frost here in the NE and fog with it, shopping to do so garden goes on the back burner.

Hospital check today one year and five months after the big one, everything normal Sister Lorna said they will call me in six months for one final scan session then it will go to every two or three years, my consultant said I will out last him, will he guarantee that I ask.

Weather very dull although we now have 4c, knowing our NE area I will still hang back a few weeks, we often get a bad February no point in rushing.


The Gingernut Cover-up ?

Obelixx, problem, on my own I would eat the lot, not good for secondary dibetes, leave it for the weekend mob and i would not get a crumb. I always made scones and by the time we sat down to tea they had gone, trifle there would be a few sticky finger prints by the time I got there, at least the finger prints would show the culprit.

David, water sports. You can (could) walk or cycle coast to coast across Northern England now we could try to swim it or cross country water skiing dodging trees the odd sunken car mind that chimney pot though it would need to be deep to cross the Pennines. The container ships from the east coast ports could make a direct route to America or we could drop heaters into a field and have mass sauna's well possibly only once as it is not a good idea dropping heaters in water. The uses are boundless and do not worry about the Spuds about half come from Egypt probably fertilised way back by me?

Just the way it falls Verdun though the odd present would come in handy. Rolls Royce, Yacht, The odd mansion in Italy, nothing big.

Gardening??, no we hybenate until sometime after my birthday in February, it would take a jack hammer to lift a weed if there were any, gardening is to enjoy not head out into the storm saying I may be some time.
