Thanks for your comments. I suppose you're right, but there's so much rain I can't get out to do anything. Consoled myself by buying many more books than I intended to at the bookshop. I popped in for a sit down and a little read to get away from it all - another bad shift at work, and didn't want to bring my mood back home for the OH to put up with... Came home £20, but another Carol Klein book to add to the collection. Seeing as I can't possibly go outside, I'm going to keep myself busy with those, and tidy the living room which is frankly, a tip! Tidy house, tidy mind and all that.

Thanks again


No nice, cute grannie tat in my garden....

been having a down patch lately, which has gradually gotten worse, get home from work, fall into a stupor, go to bed, do it all again the next day. II seem to have had the customers from hell lately... done nothing in the garden, weeds taking over the beds, I've not done anything on the allotment for over a week. I'm going to sign off for a few days methinks and just try to get myself back on track.

Have a lovely rest of the week folks.

There the wooden lolly stick type ones but the ink washes off them. I didn't bother with labels for the marigolds and dahlias.

Leaves aren't pungent nope. Ive got two of them as well. Both roughly the same height.

I've googled and I've not seen any that have any leaves even remotely resembling marigolds... In other news my dahlias have grown bulbs! Pretty chuffed with that. I'm not too bad at this growing from seed malarkey.. If only the labels would stay put!

That doesn't sound so good KEF, hope he's back to normal now!

Just about to make minus the almonds because I only went and forgot them... and some marbled brownies. 

Then it's a four cheese, broccoli, peas and spinach pasta thingy with itty bitty snacky salad snacky bits, rather like the salad bar at pizza hut if you've had the pleasure at dining at such upmarket establishments

Leaves are wrong! I'm flummoxed! Suppose I'll wait and see until it blooms
