Hi everyone, slept like a log last night.  Been busy in the garden this morning, planted out sweet peas and ivory wallflowers.  Also potted on some grasses. Hope everyone is well.

Dove, Secondborn got the forms online and filled them in herself, however, she did have to go to the solicitor to get them witnessed.  It cost £13.00 to do it this way plus £40 something which she has to send to the Deed Poll people.  If the solicitor had done everything it would have cost about £140.00. 

Seed Propagators - Heat

Ihave an electric windowsill propagator that I have been using for 3 years (it doesn't have a thermostat).  Its a garland.  They do a 7 tray and a 3 tray, mine is a 3.  I start seeds off in them and they germinate in just a few days,  I then take them off the heat and sow 3 more trays on the propagator.  I wouldn't be without mine.

Afternoon all,  I've also been smartening myself up Dove, no hair cut, couldn't get in until next week, but I have had the tallons done and an eyebrow tint and wax.  Baby shower on Saturday so can't look too much of a tramp.

Went to the solicitors today with Secondborn as she is changing her name by deed poll to that of her partner, they can't afford to get married yet (house is gobbling up all their cash) and she doesn't want the baby to have a different surname. 

No M&S for the baby shower food.  Grandaughter is going to nursery for an extra day tomorrow so I have been to the supermarket today to buy the ingreadients for a blueberry cake, fruit scones and a victoria sponge. 

Looks like I wont be gardening for a couple of days at least.

Hope everyone is fit and well.

The above doesn't really answer your question, sorry.  The urn is about 30" tall.
