Good morning Pam and goodnight,Inka.

Hope everyone is okay.

My mission today is to clean out the greenhouse. Jo has made me feel guilty. I found a dead rat in the waterbutt. I thought it was mice that dug up my tulip bulbs but I suppose rats would too.

I've got lots of packets of opened seeds so I'm going to try one or two in a heated propagator to see if they are still viable before I buy any more.

I hope Geoff's speedos are safely out of sight of the people coming to view his house.

Catch up with you all later. Enjoy your day.

Oh,right,Geoff. As you say another fiasco. It should be up to the buyers to satisfy themselves how many energy saving bulbs etc. you have.

Is it an ornamental cherry, Rosa?

This is not the Geoff we know and love.   It's a stressful time selling a house. I don't understand why the estate agent wants money now. I thought they only got paid when they sold your house.

Hope your eyes are better soon Glyn. My brother is a teacher and seems to get more than his fair share of colds. He blames the children for that.

Love my wheelbarrows, Gary.

Hi Jo,

My usually well-behaved dog can't resist attacking the wheelbarrow wheels and as a result had two burst wheels. ( I bought another to replace the first burst one) I saw some green slimey stuff in Wilkinsons that you squirt into the tyre and then re-inflate it.  I didn't expect it to work  as it wasn't expensive but it has and was enough for the two wheels. Apparently mends bike tyres too. Was impressed by it.

My wheelbarrow and just to get Kate excited it's got horse poo in it.

I've spent a couple of hours clearing a border where a big photinia fell over in the gales before Christmas. I just made one trip to the compost heap to get some manure as the grass is still soggy. Quite honestly I'd had enough today.

Poor Becks, no wheelbarrow.

Good morning Forkers,

Hope everyone is feeling better. Must get motivated today. Really feel lazy but it might be down to the gloomy weather, although the sun made a brief appearance this morning.

I went to my daughters for dinner yesterday and coming back about 7 o'clock I was amazed to see two toads making their way to the pond. Surely it's too early. It's quite mild but going to get colder later this week.

I'll take a photo of my wheelbarrow later. Not a very pretty one I'm afraid.

Poor you,Jo. Hope you are better soon.

I'm disappointed the Christmas lunch is cancelled, Geoff.

Becks. is 'Love thy Neighbour' one of those none P.C. programmes the wouldn't be shown now? Seeem to remember it was very funny.

I hope your PW is still pristine, Rosa. Perhaps you should get another one and keep your pink one for best.

Can I stay if I just have some sprouts?

thanks for the invite, Geoff. Is that for lunch as well or just nibbles?
