My dad has Susan and it's an absolute stunner. His is it in a large pot now and it brings him a lot of joy because the colours are just amazing. Hope yours brings you as much happiness. 

Are these damsons or sloes please?

Black Friday bargains

Posted: 29/11/2014 at 18:53

I'm angry about Black Friday. I bought a handbag on Monday from John Lewis, only to find that on Friday it was quite a lot cheaper!  Pretty bad idea if these big stores want to keep the average shopper happy. I'd support a shop more if it didn't have Black Friday. I'm not a huge fan of American-isms like this.

 Here's the offending black granite worktop - not my first choice! Smudge city!

Our kitchen top is black granite and I loath it! Nightmare to keep clean and shows every smudge or drop of water. The house was designed by two brothers and it is very 'male' in its design I feel. I'd go for granite again but only if it was in a soft colour. John Lewis have some lovely toffee coloured worktops and a really nice pinky one - pink sounds awful and doesn't do it justice but it really is lovely.

Never heard of it me duck!  (what's the West Midlands version of 'me duck'?). Love it though! I'll be throwing it in to conversation at work (down south, where phrases are few and far between in the West End....other than the odd 'sweetie darling').

GWRS your day ahead sounds lovely. I'm just getting ready to jump on the 7am train to work....booooo. No allotments or fires from my desk....and lunch will be an overpriced sarnie and a Luke warm 'paper' cup of tea (we aren't allowed kettles or ceramics because of health and safety!! Yep, we can't be trusted with either apparently!!).

Not as chilly as I'd thought here today though....from the outside looking in! Bet it's cold when I open that front door (in a health and safety compliant manner of course!)!

I loved York gate too. Really like the idea of all those gardens in one place. Does anyone know if members of the public can visit it?
