Morning all.

Carnage at the SM. Arrived at 7.00 as normal, car park heaving, and I am thinking what? Bloody Black Friday , that's what. At least they opened another till for them.

Have a good day everyone.

DD, I wish I was wise. Usually it is only after the event.

There was a philosopher in the Middle Ages called Buridan,  after who the concept of Buridans Ass was developed. It was a donkey equally hungry and thirsty, who was placed half way between a bale of hay and a bucket of water. It died of hunger and thirst.

It is supposed to show, that sometimes when we are spoilt for choice, we find it impossible to make any decision

Love the persuasive argument I could put to OH for buying a new greenhouse.

Don't be too shocked, but I dragged myself to the gym, must be at least the 2nd. time I have been in the last 6 months. Should seriously consider cancelling my membership, I could buy a lot of plants with the money I saved. 

Would you buy a smallholding?

Love your story Dove, it must have been quite an adventure.

Morning all, foggy and damp again.

Do you think OH would like a new greenhouse, not sure she knows about the old one though?

I don't think drumstick primulas come in yellow, but candelabra primulas do, and might fit in well.

Morning all, it is so wet here I may need an ark, anyone who wants a place just let me know.

happy birthday fidget.

Enjoy Berlin Chicky, I used to visit when I lived in Holland. The wall was still up and it was a really vibrant city. Used to pretend I was George Smiley, avoiding East German agents. A bit sad I suppose.

Have a good day.

I doubt there is anyone who could afford you Dove.

Cleared the leaves from one lawn, two more to go. Much as I love my Beech trees, at this time of year I curse them.

Morning all, severe frost again.

Funny you should say that KEF, as I am sitting here trying to work out excuses for not doing it.

Yorkshire puds with anything other than a roast dinner, just seems wrong.

Stay warm everyone.
