Not to worry boys and girls, when MIDDLESBROUGH hit the premier League those over paid lay abouts will not know what hit them.

My understanding on joining this forum was that other discussions were to take place in the potting shed, a place for having a cupper and natter as gardeners do. For some reason talk back has become the chat column, why?

Sitting here whilst Granddaughter Phoebe granddad sits me, Daughter is having a new bathroom fitted so arrived here early and has now gone shopping whilst Phoebe six (so she keeps telling me) looks after me, already asked if I want her to make me a cup of tea? I rather think kettles and children do not mix.

Morning Verdun as Phoebe would say, what is all the fuss?

Nice one David, on a run up the Durham Road Thursday fields normally full of sheep were all under water, I thought, now Salmon are back in the Tees we could run fish farms, any advice on that?

Good advice Obelixx only I bought a new TV last summer. Then an oven washer and new car now a table, there is no point in hanging back so may as well have a nice oak one for the TV. I cannot take it with me and my lot tell me to spend it on myself. That will complete the cycle the new bathroom kitchen and refurnished the conservatory, I think that is a full cover. I think there is still three and fourpence left in the bank so will look and see.

Obelixx indeed you are right, problem my glass tv table now looks out of place as everything else is oak. I will not tell Pam until ready to buy one.

Should have mentioned now the owner of new solid oak table, Daughter took me to shop said that is the table we picked, "err" sorry dear I said a round one that opens and there it is right next to your choice. We did all the tests girl said you can have that one if you wish deal done and away home. Daughter, one thing about you dad you never dither, in job done and out. What other way is there?

Treehugger, i can buy many things in super markets cheaper than i can grow them but against your own the taste like c@@@. We gardeners grow exotics because we want too who cares what it costs.
