    Morning all. Foggy start here with some rain later. We’re a right couple of crocks at the moment. Finn had an awful cold last week which the OH caught which triggered his asthma. I think he has a chest infection so he is off to the doctors at midday. And I’m laid up with sciatica :excruciating: It’s really painful to move about but even…[Read more]

    Morning Lynn. Glad to hear Ken is on the mend. Was it coronavirus? Sorry, I’m a bit out of the loop on happenings. Did you have it? A trip to the gc is the right tonic for you and all of us gardeners :-) Take care x
      • Hi Jenn, yep the dreaded COVID, he’s back to work morning only this week. So a quiet coffee in the conservatory this morning.
        Yes it was good to get out again, especially to a GC, the cheese scone was good too.
        I hope your sciatica improves soon & OH feels better too.💐💐

          Morning everyone. Foggy start here again – that means autumn has well and truly arrived here in Essex. A definite bite in the air as well. Finn has come down with a stinker of a cold. It’s not covid as his Wednesday night test was negative, so that’s good. Will be busy today starting some prep work before I start decorating the hall and…[Read more]

          • Good morning Jenn … sadly, I bet our entrance ‘hall’ can beat your entrance hall as the most in need of TLC …but where do you put stuff when you need to decorate, when you have no loft and no cellar :excruciating: ?Good luck to you :good: :rose:

              Morning Anne – I am always lagging behind :excruciating: Not the end of the world though :good:
                • Good morning Jenn … you and me both :lol: Garden seems to take its own time anyway :good: and btw, if you order snow, please let there be enough for a snowman then warm sunshine to make it disappear quickly afterwards ;-) :lol: :rose:

                  Hi Jane. A woodburner was in the original plans but the budget couldn’t stretch to it unfortunately but we’ve managed to squirrel the money away what with not going…

                    Afternoon all. Sorry I have been MIA for a little while. Nothing worrying, just frazzled brain from the next stage of the house renovation now we have saved a bit of money to continue on. The woodburner is all sorted now and will be fitted mid-late November which is great. I thought it would be after Christmas so am pleased about that. We…[Read more]

                    • Hi Jenn, wow, a lot of work there and it sounds exciting especially the wood burner. OH won’t have one so we have no fireplace just a blank wall :-( We had two in Herefordshire and I loved searching for kindling and logs. Good to see you back anyway :-)

                        • Hallo Jenn … all sounds positive now :good: :-) Keep up the good work. There is plenty of time between end of Autumn and next Spring to get garden organised :good: :-) HALE :rose:

                                Morning everyone. A bright but still blowy start here in Essex but at least it’s dry….for now. No gardening done as it has been bucketing down the past few days. Did get my onion sets though – £2 a pack in Wilkos as opposed to £4 each in Homebase or 2 for £6. I hope to get over the plot soon and get them in the ground soon. No garlic in Wi…[Read more]

                                • Good morning Jenn …
                                  Interesting about the varying prices and a strange way to retail too when you think about it :confused:
                                  Stay warm and safe :good: and HAND :rose:

                                  Hello everyone. Wet old day here so far and will continue for the rest of the night, I think. We have someone coming to do a survey for the woodburner tomorrow at 10am so have been having a bit of a tidy up after doing the food shopping. Also went into Homebase to see if they had any onion sets but they were stupid prices. Did pick up a nice…[Read more]

                                  That looks so lovely and cosy, Lynn. Glad you eventually got some fuel :good:

                                      Morning all. Wet and windy again after a lovely day yesterday. No plans today apart from continuing on with the decluttering. I haven’t been anywhere this week to…

                                        Enjoy your trip Jane – Suffolk is so gently beautiful and stuffed full of gorgeous pink cottages and beautiful villages. Have a lovely time.

                                          Morning clickers. Autum arrived overnight it seems – it’s windy and pelting it down but that’s fine because I am having today off. The weather for our allotment get together was perfect though and the 2 (lovely) new lottie holders came along as well as Ken, his son Matthew and his wife Amy. It was a really lovely way to spend a couple of hours…[Read more]

                                          • Have a lovely day Jenn … good morning :-) :rose:
                                            • Morning Jenn,yes autumn has arrived here in Norfolk too. I’m debating whether to put the washing out or not, a. Because it isn’t get wet, b. Will it stay on the line???
                                              I miss the company that a allotment brings, I love having my veg patch within the garden,but it is isolating.
                                              Hope Finn enjoys school & enjoy your me day👍💐

                                              Morning clickers. We had a busy day yesterday sorting some house stuff. First we went to check out some details with a window supplier. We need to replace Finn’s bedroom window but can’t decide between 2 windows to match the others at the back of the house or 1 larger window that won’t match but is easier to accommodate inside. Then we went to…[Read more]

                                              • Morning Jenn :-) People need fuel – what does the idiot government expect? But it’s terrible for everyone trying to get anywhere, especially the critical services. We hope to get diesel on Tuesday…
                                                But to more exciting things – have a fabulous lottie-do this afternoon :walt: Hope the weather continues to play ball :-)
                                                • Good morning Jenn…enjoy the ‘lottie gig’ sounds just he packet :good:

                                                  Morning all. Grey and cool here at the minute but it’s supposed to reach 25° later today. I need to get those outside jobs done as autumn looks to be roaring in next week and I may not get much chance to work outside. I tackled the front of the house yesterday- cleaned the windows, fascias and door (our window cleaner has gone AWOL), weeded…[Read more]

                                                  Morning Jane- house stuff seems to happen like that. If it’s not one thing it’s the other. We have saved up a few pennies and have been going through the list of jobs that need doing before our budget run out and it’s a bloody painful to be back thinking about those sort of things :lol: Hope you get your curtain thingamy sorted :rose:
