Just took ages to read back. Re names. I once worked for a man whose name was P. E. A. Green. Firstborn once taught 2 children one called Lasagne and the other called Ravioli and I'm not joking. 

Firstborn spent her maternity leave working on our family tree. Our ancestors mainly worked on the canals and lived in community housing. She got worried at one point when her hubbies relati lived in the same house As ours.  We also had a bigamist. 

Sorry posts are brief but I'm on mobile.

Pond edging

Can't see how you can turf over pond liner. The liner is waterproof so there would be no drainage. Anyone done this?

Afternoon all, flipping eck where's the morning gone.  Didn't get up until 10.00 but did have a stroll round the garden with a cuppa at 5 then went back to bed.  Visited mum for an hour, she's fine.  Moaning about aches and pains so I know shes OK.   Today I will be mostly pottering in the garden and drinking more tea. 

Tomorrow is the start of another 3 and half day Jonah marathon, so loads of hugs and kisses for me, yay!

Hope you have a lovely day with poppet SGL.

Sorry your daughter is having such a rough time Hazel hope they get to the bottom of it soon.

Hugs for Sussex and Joyce.

Morning all, Was up at 5 today wondering around the garden with a cuppa.  Lovely and peaceful but then I did go back to bed until 10.00.

Nothing planned today just pottering in the garden. Been to see mum, she's fine just a few aches and pains (know how she feels) not bad for 95.

Thoughts are with Joyce, hope she is OK.

Agree about the car Dove, just can't see the point. Never even bought a new car, can't stand the smell of the interior  for one thing it's awful. 

We'll  get there one day Hosta and everyone will wonder what the fuss was about. Gay partnerships/marriages will just become the norm.

Not envious of those temps Pat, I'm definitely a spring/summer person, hat the cold and damp.

Off for a browse before heading back out in the garden.

Evening everyone, busy few days for me.  Had the family round today for a Turkish themed BBQ, went down well.  Took a while to clean up but everything shipshape now.   Nothing on the agenda for tomorrow so a day pottering is on the cards.

Glad to hear the renovations are moving on a pace Clari.  New sofas are definitely a step in the right direction.

Sorry to hear about OH Dove hope he feels better soon.

Joyce, hugs from me at what must be a really difficult time for you and the family.

Glad to 'see' you Fairy.

Sorry if I've missed anyone.
