    Evening cills – I know, it seems rotten to complain but a good moan does us good :lol:

  • Gertie’s garden is gorgeously glorious, Anne :good: Your hellebores make me want to instantly go out and buy some.

    Afternoon all. Dark and drizzly here for most of the day so far, even the birds are staying indoors. My grass will be 4 foot high before it’s dry enough to cut :excruciating: I will have to get the local sheep around. Have decided to grow more cut flowers this year as they are a costly outgoing and it will cut down the old air miles.…[Read more]

    • Hi Jenn. This weather is absolutely dire and feel awful complaining about it when so many people have had their homes ruined. Good for you on the cut flowers. Enjoy your evening too :-)

    Afternoon Jane. I’m always cosy at the minute…blaming my age :lol:

    Hiya Karen. Glad to hear Dennis didn’t menace you too much. So thankful that we got away lightly too. We’re just very, very wet underfoot, unlike some poor buggers. I think a lot of lessons were learned round here a few years ago and the farmers have been dredging their ditches and planting more hedgerows and trees which has helped. I think…[Read more]

    Lovely Jane. I saw a group of about 20 yesterday in one of the fields when I was on my way back from Tesco’s. And the tiniest muntjac hopped into the thicket on the back way into the village the other evening :-) Getting lighter now :good:

    Evening all. I do hope you have all escaped Storm Dennis and what he has left behind.. The coverage on the news is just awful. Those poor people…and there’s another one on the way this weekend. The OH went over the plot to check on the site’s greenhouse and he said that there’s some water on the ground making it very squelchy. Thankfully our…[Read more]

    • Hi jenn, feel so sorry for those severely affected by storm Dennis, we got off lightly compared to them, they seem to be having a constant battle :-(
      I’ve got my spuds chitting, Nadine and desiree, I’ve grown rooster before, very good spud too :good:

    • Morning Jenn :-) Enjoy half term and stay safe and cosy :-)

    I am glad you are relatively unaffected, Al, but it must be heartbreaking for those who have been flooded. So sorry to hear this.

    Morning clickers. There will be a lot of zombified people dragging themselves around today – no sleep until gone 4am last night…it was really bad but I finished my book, so, silver linings and all that :-) Just light wind today (22-25mph) :eyeroll: but bucketing down so am going to look for a new sofa. Then back for a snooze. I hope all is…[Read more]

    Thanks ladies. The interviewer was really nice – their ethos is so encouraging unlike school :dunno: Jane, I am reading Three Hours by Rosamund Lupton. I am not going to have any nails left by the end of it :excruciating:

    That’s very good of Jul, Al :love: When I had Finn all the little premature babies had tiny hand knitted hats that had been made for them because it is difficult to get such small sizes and they especially needed them. They were so sweet.

    Morning cills. Have a lovely time and I hope the birthday girl enjoys her party :cake:

    Morning clickers. All quiet indoors here as the boys are still in bed but the wind is starting to pick up outside and is raining to boot as well. The kettle is going to be busy today. Have a good day and take care :blowkiss:

    Very late good evening clickers and a very late Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone :love: Was going to spend some time in the garden but I got distracted and then started a new book when I sat down for a cuppa. Won’t be risking a drenching over the weekend what with Dennis the Menace either :lol: Finn had an interview yesterday for 6th form…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn. Good for Finn, can’t believe he is nearly 6th form age😲. Staynsafe this weekend, hope you have the wine and choccies in :lol:

    • Morning Jenn :-) Well done to Finn :good: What book are you reading? Have a good weekend – forget the weather… :-)

    Afternoon my windblown clickers. It is still blowing like mad here but nothing like Sunday – oh woweee, that was harsh :run!: I stocked up on Friday and we didn’t plan to go outside…until the power went half way through cooking dinner :excruciating: Couldn’t even finish it off on the BBQ as we are out of gas although who would have stood…[Read more]

    • OMG, Jenn, what a nightmare in Essex!! Mega gusts here too but luckily the power has stayed on for us. Hope you’ve now got a table top BBQ with extra gas! Take care – like you say, it’s not over yet :rose:

      • Like you we were prepared too, but thankfully no power cuts here, could only imagine you trying to cook dinner on a gas barbeque in that weather :confused: :confused:
        Good idea about the pizza though but shows true grit by your hubby getting out there in those high winds, hope the pizza was good too ;-)

    • Afters Jenn, that was horrible for you, and worrying for OH to be out in it. :-( :fingers-crossed: your electric will stay on now and things will calm down. “Conniptions” :lol: :lol: haven’t heard that in a long time – used to be a favourite in our family. :good: Stay safe – and warm. :-)

    Hi Lynn. Oh it’s a headache isn’t it! We are looking for 600cm x 250/300cm white tiles which is proving difficult as the fashion is for smaller herringbone/chevron/lily pad styles so the shops are full of them. Found some yesterday at a place in Cambridge at a good price so stop looking, thank gawd :lol: Stay safe today- it is an absolute…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn, it’s a tad gusty out there today,looks like it’s on for most of the day!!!!! The big walnut which we are thinking of having removed is blowing around like a goodun 😲😲 a staying in day today. Glad I managed over 4 hrs in the garden yesterday👍

    Morning clickers. Woweeee, the wind is absolutely crazy here too…a little bit scary :excruciating: Luckily I don’t have to go out today so will be hunkering down and letting it blow over. Seeds to sort and I bought 2 new books in the Forbidden Planet sale yesterday so I shall be OK. OH is watching the Scotland-England rugby from yesterday…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. It’s oh so quiet, it’s oh so still, to quote Bjork :-) Out today round the retail parks of Cambridge looking for bathroom wall tiles. Who would have thought finding a white tile would be such a bum ache. We have eventually been given a date for the work to start, week commencing the 9th of March, so excited about that.…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn, don’t envy you the tile searching!!! We are looking for some black and white edging tiles, to go on the top of the white tiles we already have,can’t seem to find much that I like, we had some great one in the last house!!!!

      Spending some time in the garden as it’s sort of sunny and a slight breeze, so shall move anything lightweight…[Read more]

    Hello laydeees. Weather is much more agreeable today but we know what’s coming, don’t we, eek :confused: One little bit of skirting to do and a window sill and then we are done. Didn’t get to the reclamation yard as other stuff came up but will go on Monday, I think. White House Farm is a bit slow, Karen @vegvamp but it is getting quite…[Read more]
