Dads are brilliant, and mums are pretty cool too...

Posted: 06/09/2014 at 23:11

What is it about dads that makes them so amazing?  A 'delightful' little darling decided to throw a missile from the pub garden next to my back garden and smash a large sheet of glass in my greenhouse. Dad measured up, ordered the glass, collected it, paid for it and finally, despite me doubting it was humanly possible, fitted it! How on earth he got it in without taking the greenhouse apart is beyond me. I was convinced it wouldn't fit in. He is simply BRILLIANT!  Especially given he's 76 and has terrible arthritis in his hands too. 

My mum is beyond cool too. She just has a nack of making everything look lovely, clean, tidy and homely.  

I am one very lucky gardener x

Hi, I just wanted to share with those of you who'd love to see another gardening show on the telly. I discovered one called Beechgrove and it's absolutely brilliant. Thing is I think it's BBC Scotland. I can only find it on my iPhone and as I'm a bit of a technophobe I have no idea what channel on the normal telly that it would be on, or if indeed a normal telly can only pick it up if you live in Scotland. Anyhow, im sure those of you who are good at the internet could pick it up. Bbc I player I think. 

Sorry if this is a well known show (I must sound like a plonker for those who know the show well) but for those who like me had never heard of it, it's brilliant! Really interesting and basic gardening. For me, the content is loads more relevant than Gardeners World although I love monty, Nigel and carol! Definitely a place for both.

Morning....just watching the mist rise with a hot cup of tea. Wishing I could spend my day in the garden, but instead I have the daily 2hr commute, a tedious presentation to give, a meeting with a 'talker' so won't be short, a trek to the other side of London for another meeting and then home time....after the 2 hr commute back. 

Must remember to buy a lottery ticket at some point. 

Anyone doing anything fun today?
