Just heard the forecast that after heavy rain tonight then the weather should improve- that's nice but I've just been so impatient that I popped out to plant up 20 little viola Asda had. I'm now soaking but happy.

I bought some Sweet peas this morning. The ones I planted in the autumn were doing really well but then I let them dry out . The only thing that concerns me is that the pot they are in is really small so they haven't been able to grow nice long roots- still I'll give them a go.

Still not caught up on here but I suppose I can just take it from here.

Work is good thanks Chicky- in fact I was alowed a couple of days off to go and visit my daughter when she had her baby. My first granddaughter is called Poppy which I think is a fab name.

Morning all. Haven't been on here for months and months- spending too much time on school work.

I shall use this holiday trying to catch up a bit. The weather has decided that I won't be doing anything outdoors for now.

Evening all. I managed toget out for a short time- and made my neighbour feel even colder as I was just wearing a summer dress.

Also sowed my sweet peas. Am I right in thinking they don't need to be heated at all David?

The paradise later on- if I can manage to stay awake long enough.

Have a lovely evening everyone

Morning all.

I have been so busy this week I haven't even had enough energy when I'm finished to even read posts on here . I have only caught up from yesterday so sorry if I have missed anything important- if anyone posts anything important .

Archie sorry to hear of your loss. That is one of the sadder things as we age.

I fell asleep before GW on friday so put TV on this morning ready to watch it and have found a lovely prog with Alan T.

Yesterday was raining and horrid but I just wasted the day so now I have school work to do rather than be able to get out and enjoy the lovely sunny day we have here.

Stacey- big hugs for Tuesday.

Matty, hope you had a lovely evening yesterday.

I hope to meet Lizzie again later in the week.

Dove hope your pa is well for today and you have the good weather I have.

Have a wonderous day everyone

Remembrance Sunday

I remember years ago being afraid of how the children in school was act during the two minute silence on the eleventh. I used to teach in a somewhat rough school- No child ever was anything but respectful during the two minutes.

There are times when people surprise us for the better

Well I didn't have internet last night so couldn't get on here. I came home really meaning to get straight on with my marking....decided to have a quick look on here.......more than 3 hours later I have just caught up.

So it is all your faults that I'm now having to start my marking

Have a great evening all

Serious! Really
