Hi all.

Seriously wet here and worse to come, ark building will commence soon.

NDN had police round at 5 am., had been woken by sound of breaking glass, so I don't know what was going on. Sorry to say, but I hope it was nothing trivial!!

Brandies all round, although I am not sure if I approve of the ice.

Back from very cold walk, although it did stop raining.

For those that know the area, we were up at Redmires, lots of snow around and the reservoir is very empty.

Need to warm up, those crumpets sound a good idea Dove. A small brandy might be needed.

Hi all.

Wet, windy and cold here. Stream has white water in it and sounds very fierce. In summer it tinkles, but at this time of year it almost sounds frightening.

OH thinks we need some air, she might be right, but I don't think it will be fun, maybe one of those things you enjoy when it is over.

Pansy is right, there is no true black rose.

Sorry if this offends, but I have just read it and I was gobsmacked

"More people in India own a mobile phone than have access to a toilet 53% of families don’t have a toilet Almost 70% of rural households don’t have access to proper toilets 550 million people defecate in the open"

Anyone done any gardening today - version 3

Probably too late now GWRS I would get them started in late January, that is when I sow my second batch. I give them a little heat until they germinate, then out to a cold greenhouse.
