I think i was brave but there are guys and gals who do this on a daily basis, they are the nutjobs.

I recommend it to anyone who wants to push themselves to the limit. and after all that i still cannot work out how Sherlock survived.

Good morning Chaps and Chapesses,

Back from my mates stage do in Newquay now currently sat at work .

What a weekend, the highlight of the weekend was the Coasteering. I have never been so scared in my life, jumping off of a cliff and falling for around 3.5 seconds before hitting the water .

Good morning,

Still trying to get back into my routine  without any success. Taking 2 weeks off from the garden (because parents are down on hols) is starting to show, my new borders need weeding, I don't think i have made them deep enough because the grass from the lawn is migrating its way into them. The lawn is fine because I cut it last Saturday (OCD played a part in that), my lavender babies have grown about an inch since potting them 2 weeks ago.

I have a stag do to go to in Newquay the weekend and my rents return home on Friday so normal service should resume soon and i shall start with my long list of things to do, starting with autumn feed & weed, building a could frame, ...1001 other things.... and finishing with my outside toilet to potting shed conversion

All will be updated to my poor excuse for a blog

Good morning

I hate trying to get back into a routine after a holiday, brain not switching off in the evening and not turning back on in the morning.

Came home from work yesterday to find my OH's cousin has sprayed weed killer over my wild section of the garden, it was starting to attract bees and butterflies as well

Hope all is well in your little worlds

Good morning peeps, 

Went back to the steam railway yesterday, all was well until I had to go to Bodmin minor injuries unit because I had soot in my eye. They managed to get the little bugger out but not before it scratched the hell out of my cornea. They have given me some eye drops and it should heal with in 24-48 hours but due to being type 1 diabetic it may take a couple of days longer.

Off to The Lost Gardens of Heligan in about an hour so ill take loads of snaps and post them up in the relevant thread. This should give me a good in site into what i can grown in the garden because its only 3.5 miles away, it has the same soil, climate etc.
