Sorry to hear your news Pentillie. Good friends are hard to find, and friends with his enlightened attitude even harder. Give him a good send off.

Morning all, looking like it might be a nice day, water now largely gone, except in the boggy beds, which is fine.

Hope to get out and do some stuff.

Have a lovely day everyone, have a good pub lunch Dove.

Evening, thought I should reveal exclusively that I have found out that you are right about posters using multiple aliases on the other site. I am also Dove from Above and KEF.

Sure you have noticed how many messages are now on the proper forkers site, growing at about 100 a day, how is yours doing?

Strange, we had fish for tea as well. i cooked some nice fillet of cod. with a butterbean and tomato sauce. Ver nice if I say so myself.

Mrs G. I could do with some help in the garden, the OH is useless. You would of course have to be searched before leaving, and yes I did enjoy the Olympics, well much better than tidying the greenhouse.

Please no mention of salad 4th. Panda; devil food. Stacey I cant believe this 500 cal. diet is good for you. There are days when I need more than that to get out of bed.

Evening all, its lovely to see the subtle change occuring on this thread as Spring approaches. We are all starting to talk about plants again.

Have had a good day sorting out the now un-flooded greenhouse. I have potted on lots of cuttings and seedlings from Summer and Autumn. I was supposed to tidy it all up as well, but when it comes to tidying up, I usually find something else pressing to do. Today I suddenly developed this burning desire to watch some of the Olympics.

Right better go and start cooking tea.

Advice would be greatfully appreciated

I think that sometimes people forget, that if they dont have a greenhouse, then plants outside in pots are often at more risk from frost than if they were planted in the soil.

I know that we have had a thread for this before, but many of us have expressed dismay at the quality of many MPCs these days. I thought that it was worth mentioning that I bought some Levington Original yesterday and, that on opening it today, it appears to be good stuff. One drawback as you might imagine, £6 for 50 litres, but if appearances and feel are anything to go by, it might be worth it.

Hi everyone, thanks for your concern, it is genuinely touching how much fellow forumers support each other.

Things are looking a lot better here; water is receding fast, I can now see the borders starting to re-emerge from out of the water. need to find a builder to look at roof and, I shall sort out the greenhous today.

Clari, that nightmare sounds horrid. I tend to get nightmares when I am very stressed, fortunately that is not occuring nearly as much since I left work. Good luck with the list, I shall probably start another today.

Ww, wonderful to be seeing those harbingers of summer.

I know we are supposed to ignore the WUM, but he winds me up so much that, I just want to have a go back.

I love a good to do list. The only problem I have is that I seem to keep starting new ones, and never seem to get round to actually doing any of the jobs.

Nice to have a dry day, the water level is starting to go down fairly quickly, please, no more rain for a while. [ Come summer I will probably be praying for rain.]

The first one I've seen this year - 2014
