    Could be revolutionary, Cilla – could plan to stay at home for at least a month, playing Scrabble and Monopoly with OH. But it wouldn’t be you. Enjoy today, Cilla.

    I bought a bunch of felted wool sunflowers and a birthday present for the wee tornado’s mother. There were a couple of good stalls, (most of them were pretty average) but the chat was good, Cilla.

    Do you find it difficult to be hard-hearted, Jane? Just think of those poor devils who have struggled heroically to put their doctorate together being cast-out into a cruel and unfeeling world without hope…. perhaps sobbing brokenly……

    I am sitting here yawning, Jane – and trying to keep the insidious suggestion, “Just go back to bed” at arm’s length. I will be good. I will just sit here in my dressing gown and have another cup of coffee. Enjoy a leisurely day, Jane – you know you deserve it…..

    • Feeling quite proud of myself because this morning I turned down 2 PhD theses! it took me a day to do it even though I’d decided a month or so ago but I won’t waste time next time!

      • :good: :-)

    • Good morning Jane. You are good having an early walk. Raining here too. Enjoy your day. :-)

    Quite glad to say today is a “day off” for me, and I will be faffing about doing precious little. I could finally dig over the fruit cage and spread some manure, but the ground is still soaking from yesterday’s rain – so probably a riotous day leaf collecting.

    • Morning Sheila :-) I was thinking of leaf collecting myself but it’s just started raining and the obvious alternative choice is to read, for me. Scotland is supposed to have good weather today so make the most of it and have a good day!

      • Morning Bean, did you find anything at the craft fair? Leaf collecting should be good. Enjoy your quiet day :-)

    Buonanotte e sogni d’oro,Walt.

    These look terrific, Tony. H

    Boy! You certainly know how to live, Anne. Can’t you challenge him to something you can win at, like sewing? Seriously – have a lovely visit!

    Hopefully it’s going to be a bit better for everyone in different parts of Wales today – stay safe Ali ,Allan, and Walt and keep cosy.

  • Wonder if it is possible to increase the length of individual beans by either limiting the number of flowers producing beans, or by attaching a small weight to a developing pod?

    I do all my chopping and veg preparation on a large tray, Tony – a quick wash in the sink with any dishes works a treat……

    Attending a craft sale down in Troon today with an ex-Toenails colleague – and hoping to spot some unusual festive presents. I was looking forward to this outing until a phone call last night from the wee one’s mother proposing a visit – and the thought of missing a visit from the wee tornado himself has taken some gloss off of the day. At the…[Read more]

    • Morning Bean. I’m sure you will enjoy your day, something different to look at. Dry and calm is good, damp, warm and very gusty here. Have fun :-)

    • Morning Sheila :-) hope the day goes well. When you see the wee one again, it will be all the sweeter!

    • Craft sale sounds great Sheila, I nearly suggested that the wee one could have gone with you but a small tornado + craft stalls is not a good combination. :lol: Enjoy your day.

    Am beefing up on inoculations before volunteering at local general hospital – I think I am having pneumococcal and shingles today – hope they don’t flatten my immune system.

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 3 days, 9 hours ago

    It’s amazing how conditions can vary within a few hundred miles, Tubs – we are sodden (and glad of it). Keep cosy today.

    • We have been very dry but as I have mentioned before I am amazed at everything that has survived without me watering the garden. When the first lot of rain came most things got a new life and started blooming well. I thought Plants in the wild do not have someone watering them and they survive!

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 3 days, 9 hours ago

    That’s amazing Tubs – I really didn’t know that camellias bloomed just now. These must be very precious.

    Ye Gods – I see Anne, and it’s only 7am. Bonjour Madame!

    • :lol: It was :-) I got up to wish oldest good luck for some exams… he was very doleful last night, talking of jacking it in for a year and starting all over again! Gordon Bennett the stresses and strains of exams plus everything else at the tender age of 17… wish I were cleverer … I’d devise a full-proof education system that didn’t…[Read more]

    Welcome back Hayley – hope you had a terrific time, and will have some photos for us after you have attended to the garden. That jet lag must be fierce – it’s not too often that someone says Good morning to me at midnight or thereabouts.

    Wet and distinctly breezy here this morning, but fingers crossed for all Welsh Clickers this morning who are bearing the worst of it today. Foodbank for me this morning, and a couple more prophylactic jabs from the practice nurse this afternoon – so not exactly a Whoopee day to get excited about.

    • Morning Sheila, jabs, plural? :-( :bad: Not to bad here either but yes, Wales is due to be bad I think. Have a good day, apart from the perforations. ;-)

      • Am beefing up on inoculations before volunteering at local general hospital – I think I am having pneumococcal and shingles today – hope they don’t flatten my immune system.

    • Morning Bean, I wish you wouldn’t use these long words at this hour of morning, what is left of my brain isn’t in gear yet and I shall have to google it ;-) Whatever they are I hope they are painless. Our flu jabs aren’t until 10th November, probably have caught it by then ;-) Have a sort of good day.

    • Hello Sheila :-) hope you have a better day than you think you’ll have!

    Whenever I see a post like this from you Tony, I always wonder if you have an industrial-sized deep freeze – but I know you give a lot to family and friends. Still, all that chopping and blanching……..

    Dear Karen, really glad the weather is co-operating in helping you get back on to your feet. Bet you were sorry to say goodbye to the 10ft monster, but you can always grow another one next year. Like the sound of that tomato recipe – sadly won’t be able to try it until next year now, but a definite for then.

    • Thank you all, Lynn if the seeds look good you more than welcome to some of them :-) and the tomato recipe is lovely I had some with my cheese on toast today :good:
      Will have to post the recipe soon :good:
