Wintersong - I just think he should be practical and think of the financial reward - there may well be a demand for an ark, particularly in Pdoc's part of the world


Yes,  you have a point...if I can just find a way to convince him he needs a third full-time job

@Dove, model ships 

@Fairy, I haz step as well, 4'4" here

@Gerty, Yes very exciting but I can't really enjoy the moment since my hubby's hosting his conference in exactly one week and my house is a building site . Hiring my son for two days to steam ahead with it. I'm sure it will be lovely on the day.

Clari, be careful here, seems like it's not the only occasion you have reiterated this situation  me thinks your boss takes advantage 

Evening all, long day of tiling here, only have small gaps to fill now. ..then the floor is going down at last. House is full to brim of new stuff arriving. Today was large picture frames (finishing touches for hallway), and Christmas presents. Tomorrow stair carpet and  brass rods plus hanging pan rack and glass shelves for kitchen. It's so tiny I need alI the space I can get!

On a good note, son is coming to help with wall painting and finally got and electrician coming on Friday to hang two new lights and fix my cooker socket. 

Also, convinced OH to have a shed fitted in the spring for all his wood sniffing antics. He used to build exquisite doll's houses when he was younger, now he wants to build ships. I'm giving up part of my border, which I really don't mind, I want this for him as he always buys things for others and not himself. That's his main Christmas pressie sorted too, result

Morning Yvie 

Anyone done any gardening today?

Posted: 28/11/2015 at 18:12

Yesterday I planted two bags of Alliums in the borders and six bags of Tulips in pots, finally!

Two smaller pots with 10 purple each and two big pots with 20 orange each. Might have odd numbered tulips in the big pots though as I was surprised I had thirty something for the second pot 

Oh well, done now

We're having a week away (Yorkshire - nowhere warm and exotic like some people!) in the middle of December and have just invited my in-laws for Christmas (will be staying 3 days). That means that when I come back from holiday I have just 2 days to get the house clean, welcoming and Christmassy and sort out the food with all the hassle of the crowds.


Best get started then.... SYL 


I know your pain Top bird! 

I haven't even started on Christmas, rooms are still half decorated and OH offered to host a conference meeting with his American work colleagues and boss! A few days before Christmas 

I'm working flat out to remove semblance of building site in time
