Chicken casserole eaten, OH catching up on last weeks Shetland, then we can watch tonights.

I am having G@T, writing a to do list for tomorrow, am also eating Twiglets leftover from weekends guests.

Been trying to organise a cottage up in Gairloch for summer. It is my favourite part of the Highlands and wonderful for wildlife. Often see otters from the jetty, and Sea Eagles are not an infrequent site. It is also very handy for Inverewe gardens.

Hi PP., I bought some rhizomes last autumn, and the shoots have just started to appear, in not so sunny South Yorkshire. I dont think I would worry yet.

I have a birthday this year so what are ŷou going to get me?

Verdun, being a very important person. that is me not you, I have 2 birthdays this year. Therefore it is more important that we discuss what you will buy me!

Jays certainly do it, and they are both from the same family, so perhaps not too surprising, although I have never seen it either.

NO, Mrs G., not MeadowHELL. That place is my worst nightmare. I get worse panic attacks thinking of that place, than I did when I was ill.

Well I survived, although now far to Kn******d to go to GC, think I may need a lie down.

KEF of course you are absolutely right about alcohol, but I have long since stopped denying myself pleasure, I would just like to be able to eat what I like, drink what I like and, not put on weight.

I seem to have come back to an alternative universe, everyone is changing their name. Very confusing.

Just back from the gym...... yes really. Was playing the Palma Violets and the Dammed, good beat to exercise to.

Hello Orchid lady, sophisticated indeed. I imagine someone dressed in 1920s style, at a cocktail party. Am surprised you did not choose one of my suggested names!

I would pot the fuschias into slightly larger pots, you may need to do this again before they are ready to go out.

Its nice to treat yourself isnt it? I think us gardeners should do it more often.

Morning fellow forkers, wet and foggy here, looks more like autumn.

Tracry you will definetely feel better once you star using your greenhouse, they are great placs to go and hide.

Now dont laugh, but I am off to the gym this morning, I really have to do something about the weight that is pileing on. When I was working, a combination of stress and walking miles round the hospital probably help to keep the weight off.

If I survive, I might go on a small tour of local GCs, not to buy anything of course, just to see what they are selling.

Have a good day everyone, only about 33 years till retirement for all you 27 year olds.
