Good Evening FORKERS

SLG, Magnums are my downfall! Did have a milky way the other day, otherwise, don't eat chocolate any more.

There is an awful lot of gardening chat on here tonight. Is this a gardening forum then? Could have fooled me.

Nite all. Going to have a read now.

MrsG, are they only reading glasses you need or do you have a more awkward prescription.  I recently paid £150 for a pair of reading glasses, which I hated. Felt I was pushed into getting them.  So sent off to one of these places on line.  Love them and they were really cheap.  Still got the first pair I bought 5 years ago but I needed a new prescription.  Just a thought.

There's only one box I'm going to need!

That Chicky certainly gets about!  Glad you enjoyed yourself. 

SLG, I found so many empty cardbord boxes in my loft, all down to me!  I had the habit of telling son to pop them up there as they might come in handy.  What for, I don't know.  Only one left to go, plus all the rest of the clothes, toys, etc. Determined it will be done this year.  By the way, no goodie bag. Was really looking forward to the pen and perhaps a bracelet or two!  Once bought harmonicas for all the boys at son's party.  I was everso popular with the mums.

Well, got the grass cut for the last time this year, chopped lots of bushes at back of garden and managed to shift a large lump of tree trunk unto a hole which the cat gets into behind my climbing by hydrangea. Was very warm but temperature has now really dropped.  Not that good for tomorrow either.

FG. Trust you to lower the tone. Go stand in the corner.

Just to lighten things up a bit - not gardening but daft.

Did you hear about the Hyena who drank a pint of gravy?.....................

He was a laughing stock!

What do Eskimos get from sitting on the ice too long?


Stupid I know!!

SGL, 8.56 is not late! I was very late this morning and need to get myself motivated as I want to get grass cut.  Sun was shining but it's clouding up now. 

SGL, have you mentioned your problem to Daniel Haynes?  I don't have any problems with ads, as mentioned a couple of days ago, so he may be able to steer you in the right direction.  I know several posters have tried to assist so don't want to upset anyone being as I'm a know-nothing where techie problems are concerned.

Daughter just phoned to say she has decided on a suitable school for granddaughter, if she can get in.  Still awaiting results off 11+ which are due out tomorrow.  She has been to view so many schools.  Such a difference from when mine were moving on.  If you passed your 11+ you went to the local Grammar or Technical school and, if not, nearest Secondary.  Simples peeps. 

Well, this won't get the grass cut. Best be off.

Daniel has posted about forum problems on Kef's thread 'Still got problems with forum' if anyone's interested.

Puncdoc. You're obviously feeling a little better.

Daughter, 2 kids, Son and wife, eldest grandson and baby came for a cuppa and cake.  Well not baby. They've all just gone - thank goodness.  Can't be doing with all that noise at my age.    Granddaugher was delighted with her mixer.  Pity her Mum tonight as I can see she will be pestering to use it. 

Was tempted to have a go at my Hydrangea today MrsG but decided to leave it until I can see what's what.  Got it propped up with those green plant holders at present as it was falling all over the place.  Has to be about 3ft + high and as wide.  Shame about yours, but it will grow again.

Wasn't expensive MrsG.  Nice neat little thing which will be just the right size for her.  Me thinks there was a method in my madness!!  Can't wait to taste the results.  Apparently, she makes lovely cookies and sponges. 

Mrs G,  you can either work yourself up and get angy with the laid back attitute and mess or just let them get on with it.  I was once told to stop and think 'how important is it'.  I never found it that important! Where the mess in the boys' room was concerned, I would, when in the mood, tackle it with black bags and put everything lying around in them and leave them to find whatever they wanted.  Anything not retrieved within a few days would go in the bin.  Daughter has always 'suffered' with OCD so wasn't a problem! 

Afraid my sun has disappeared.

Know how you feel MrsG and, no, can be of no help.  Did get my now 18 year old grandson one of those huge beanbags a couple of years ago so he could play his games in comfort!  He did want it  - wasn't my idea. Perhaps not a good idea for you. My problem was what to buy an 11 year old who, IMO, has far too much and seems to have everything.  Present from parents is a Blackberry.  No PAYG cheap phone for her!  Bloody rididculous. Made a decision that this year I was not going to be blackmailed into paying any more than £50 and that's what I have done.  Bought her a small food mixer as she's very keen on cake making. Hope I reap the benefits of this!

I have to confess I watch lots of TV - not daytime but evening. I am also one of those awful mothers/grandmothers that allowed my kids to watch TV and play game consoles when and for as long as they liked.  If, once they got to being teenagers, they didn't do homework, it was their problem, not mine. I could not get myself worked up at their tardiness.  Believe it or not, they have not suffered.

Have just come in having moved several plants.  Started with just two and ended up doing 6.  Had to finish as I didn't want to wear myself out and it was very hot out there.  Best go and give them a bit of a water as ground getting quite dry again.
