Lets hear it for the houseplants.

I have a deep kitchen window sill full of plants. One is a potted jasmine which grows like mad, but hasn't had any flowers since I bought it a few years ago. Any suggestions gratefully received.

Also have a small parlour palm which has had lots of new leaves and flowers. Have just divided it into 3 plants. Will post some photos.

Evening all, welcome to fork handles Bev, you'll soon get used to us.

Don't be grumpy Geoff, think about Valencia!

Watched Strictly, some good performances tonight. I agree Geoff, Bridget Jones, perfect. I still like Lisa Riley, but DVO looking good too.

Catching up on last week's Montalbano now. Did some work this afternoon, as have booked to go to Skyfall on Monday afternoon. Have to go, need to read the subtitles!

Just been wandering around the site, so entered some competitions. I never win competitions, so I won't keep my hopes up. Having said that I won a Roberts radio in a raffle once.

Still waiting for my sandwich, apparently now sausage, not bacon.

Morning all, had a lovely lie in, read some Daziel and Pasco, OH now making a bacon butty. Sunshine, blue sky and fast moving clouds, but think the rain coming later. Might get into the garden for a while.

Becks hope Jess is doing better now, Kate glad you managed to survive the week, the expression 'not for all the tea in China' comes to mind.

Escapees to Spain, I want to come too! I will have to make do with a placement. visit to Madrid in the meantime. Hablo un poco espanol!

Bjay, hope Inkie is OK now, is it something he ate?

Puddles on the floor, we just get mice. Cat flaps are a godsend.

Going to have a lazy day now.

Evening all, gold star for marketing Geoff. I've always fancied Valencia, but never been. I love Andalucia.

Becks, more channels, still nothing to watch!

Reading week next week, so working from home Monday and Tuesday, 4mornings without having to get up early, hallelujah! Saturday looks like it might be wet, so won't feel too bad, if I stay in bed until mid afternoon.

Morning all, got up later the usual, will probably make it just in time for my first dissertation student. No time for breakfast, that means a buttery toasted tea cake when I get into work, yum. Catch you later.

Evening all, lounging on the sofa after a tiring day. OH made vegetable soup today, so had that for tea.

Having renegotiated our BT Vision deal when our hub went caput, we were expecting a much lower bill, but got one for 121 pounds! What's that about? OH will be on the phone to them!

Hi Becks, had chicken cacciatore which was nice, but the chicken was a bit tough in places. Then lemon meringue cheesecake which was good. It was so quiet though, don't know how they manage to stay open during the week.

Night Geoff. Just having a cuppa, then will probably be off myself. long past my bedtime for a week night!

Evening all, sorry I've been AWOL, out with the girls tonight. Had a nice time and an OK meal. Italian we went to was empty apart from us 3.

Worzel Gummidge was OK, but I preferred Catweazle.
