Finding lots of blue and White pottery when I dig....

Posted: 01/05/2016 at 16:32

Ah thanks. Whoever it belonged to was definabley into those colours as that's all we find.....oh, other than the bricks, rubble and plastic bags of cable that we have found!

The Viking Way walk runs by our house so we get a fair few detectorists about.

hello

been digging over a new bed and keep finding bits of blue and white pottery. 

Is this quite common? My house is quite new and built on a former agricultural field. it seems to be all over the place.

Wear gloves Julie - industrial ones! I got some on my hands and they honked for days! I even tried bleach but it didn't get rid of the stench. 

I vowed never ever to make the stuff again. The honk was like nothing I have ever smelt before.

A bread roll is always a cob in Nottingham. But you can also have a "cob-on" which is quite different as it means you are having a mardy (and a mardy is a grumpy episode). 

Feedback from BBC about GW being cancelled

Posted: 27/04/2016 at 18:47

hello

i sent an email to the BBC about GW but cancelled and received quite a nice response. One hour trials - yippppee! In case anyone wants to read here it is:


Thanks for getting in touch about Gardeners’ World. We appreciate that you’re frustrated with the scheduling of the current series, particularly the interruptions due to live sporting events. 

We’d like to assure you that Gardeners' World is an important part of the BBC Two schedule and we do try to minimise these disruptions. That said, our commitment to live sport coverage, which is also enjoyed by BBC Two viewers, does mean our schedule is occasionally subject to change.

Two episodes of Gardeners’ World have made way for the Snooker World Championship and the Golf Masters - both of which are time specific live events – but the overall number of programmes in the series will remain the same. 

Gardeners’ World will be back next week, when Monty and the team will be at the RHS Malvern Spring Flower Show. In the meantime though, you can catch up with Monty for some specially filmed Jobs for the Weekend at www.bbc.co.uk/gardenersworld.

Thank you again for your feedback - it really is useful for our programme and scheduling teams to hear directly from viewers. For example, we’re trialling some special one-hour editions of Gardeners’ World later in the year after viewers told us that they’d like to see a longer show. 

We hope we’ve been able to address your concerns and demonstrate that the BBC remains committed to Gardeners World. 

Kind Regards

Petition to stop cancelling GW

Where on earth is the logic?  Gardening has become so much more popular these days. It makes no sense to then cancel a 30 minute prog. 

Grrrrrrrrr!!

I've just heard that GW is cancelled again this Friday too. Please tell me this isnt correct?  On a bank holiday Monday weekend too, at the busiest time of year for many gardeners.

I can feel a strongly worded email to the BBC coming on!!

So...............

I have a lot of colleagues from the US "reaching out to me". I also have some UK colleagues wanting to "square the circle", "touch base" and "take a helicopter view". 

My most recent teeth grinder is colleagues who buy time while they think of what to say by saying "what it is is" - drives me potty along with "at the end of the day" and  starting every sentence with the word "fundamentally"!

It can be like one long tedious episode of The Apprentice in my office sometimes.
