Dove, the TVR Tuscan was a real car. As you say fantastic sounding, and properly pretty.

Seed Sowing Time Yet?

BL, I sowed the GW Zinnias a week ago, and they have germinated. Not grown them before, but they look zingy, if that is a word.

Hopefully an Audi A1. It will be nice to have room for compost and stuff in the boot, but whether that compensates for not having a soft top, well that's another matter.

Afternoon all.

Sunny, but bitterly cold here, not a day to be in the garden, for me at least.

That sounds like good news Matty.

I have worked out how to avoid decorating. I make such a mess that OH has banned me from doing anything other than the smallest job.

Off to clear out the car, on the assumption that the new one will turn up at the garage soon. Then it all depends on whether I like it when I test drive it. I suppose I should be excited, but I love my car.

Freezing here, with a howling gale as well.

Went into the garden for a spot of fresh air, poking around in the woodland, to see what might be starting to grow. The ominous groaning of the branches of the Beech trees soon made me move.

Just watched the last part of Wolf Hall, I wish there was more telly like that. What a fantastic performance by Mark Rylance.

Like the sound of the meat balls Dove, I am cooking a tuna stir fry and noodles, for when OH gets back from Pilates.

Morning all.

Spring my a###, snowing and bitterly cold here.

Very bad weekend, sport wise.

Hope you all have a good day.

Morning all.

Snowing here.

Just had a tree surgeon in to look at some of the damaged trees, from the Boxing day snow. I have done all the bits I can do, but some of the trees need to come down completely.

I have had some very bad experiences with tree surgeons in the past, and have also looked after some of the resulting damage that can happen to the surgeons themselves.

This bloke seemed very knowledgeable, and will make me some nice log piles, in the wilder parts of the garden.

Have a lovely day.
