Monty don new series

Posted: 24/10/2014 at 23:14

Just watched the one about the model village.  It was really cringeworthy I felt so sorry for Monty.  I really don't know how he kept a straight face.

Oh Bekkie, I might just have to buy one so I can see peoples faces when I tell them what its called.

Yea Bekkie the weather is pants.  But I think I'm just feeling a bit yuk.  I really hate the dark nights with a passion so it could be that.  Not on Nanna Duty for a week so I guess I have plenty of time to plant my latest purchases. 

I ordered the Nerines on offer in the mag (which arrived yesterday) so I will have to sort myself out soon as I have tulips to plant as well.

Fairy, I had the same problem when I had a discussion with someone at work who didnt have children.  Her comments about why should I pay for education and childcare when I have no children really incensed me.  I asked if she would like to sign to say that she would not use the services of any lawyers, doctors or policeman after all they had been educated in the system she didnt want to pay for.  It actually shut her up for a while.

Hi folks,

KEF Sorry to hear about hubby hope he feels better soon. 

BL Its a real shame about your rescued moggy but as everyone else has said at least he had you to look after him at the end.

Clari must have missed the bit about your pants, I'm sure they will turn up eventually, but where is the question

Dove I'm with you on the council tax.  I'd rather pay a bit more and get good services than save a couple of quid and find that libraries and day centres have to close. 

Lesley Hope your mum is OK, if you hadn't planted the pansies she would probably have fallen trying to put them in herself. But then that would still have been your fault.  My mum has a way of making me feel guilty without ever blaming me for anything, I just don't know how she does it.

A bit dull and dismal here but it's looking like it might brighten up later.  Havent been in the garden for a couple of days.   Have plants to put in but just don't feel like it. 

Hope miners have a good day.

It's my birthday

Happy Birthday Bekkie, Hope you had a great day.

Dont coddle David, they are in a cold greenhouse and I am keeping the door open until frosts are forecast.  Had to shut it during the windy weather but all is calm now here.

Hi David, just wondered how often you water sweet peas once they have germinated.
