    Good evening Peops :high-five:
    Had a good session in GG. Potted a few very small :disappointed: white Campanula cuttings for you KarenVV, @vegvamp
    as promised. Will wait to see if they survive nicely before sending them to you. :giggle: I watered around, eyeing ominous dark clouds, and daring it to water GG for me, and guess what, as soon as…[Read more]

    Another busy day in store … made a leisurely start…it’s hot out there, and so much cooler here, looking at greenery :lol:
    Glad that you are feeling a tad better Karen @vegvamp :clover:
    HALD All :high-five: :clover: :rose:

    Oh dear, this is turning out to be quite an exciting day, and not always for the best reasons :confused: I hope Karen @vegvamp you are feeling better this evening: … and Vashte, that you are not smoked out :shout:
    Have a good evening Everybodypeops … am off to water my friend’s garden and baskets :high-five: :love: :clover: :walt: :rose:

    • Morning Anne, feeling a lot better this morning thank you, being able to get a little sleep helps as well. :good:

    Have had a wee bit of a lie-in, which would have been very pleasant, but for the accompanying dream. I dreamed that I was in Ireland, and for some reason needed to borrow Karen’s sailing gear (think I had forgotten my raincoat). All was tickety-boo until I needed to visit the Ladies’ Room – when I couldn’t for the life of me get the blooming…[Read more]

    • Morning Sheila, can see the watering is going to become a problem for a while, not that I’m complaining, honest, very glad to see some heat. :good: Sailing trousers do have a zip down the front, ;-) Though modern “ladies” ones have a “drop seat” ?? Not sure I would trust them to be waterproof though. :confused:
      Do let us know the decision on the…[Read more]

    • Morning Sheila :-) goodness, I didn’t know you had to ‘select’ render and stones… why you need arty-farty I suppose! Enjoy yourself!

    Morning clickers :-) I’m late and everyone is off elsewhere apart from @vegvamp Karen – good morning :-) I’ve been watering the veg before starting work – takes an age. Also washed lettuces as I like to have it ready for when I actually make the lunch as it can take ages… the downside of not buying packets of ready-washed leaves :lol: Must start…[Read more]

    • Morning Jane, bet your own leaves are way tastier than those stupid packets. ;-) Am having a lazy morning as am still wrecked after yesterday. :lol: Good luck with the work. :good:

      • Morning ,J,K,A unusual for me to catch anyone on here in the morning, :-) .

        • That’s cause you’re usually on at 1am! :lol:

          • Had an early night, :lol:

            • :lol: :lol: :lol: Not like you at all. ;-)

            • Spent all day putting a sawbench together,Instructions were in English, But they could just as well be in Chinese for what they were worth.Did my head in. :-(

            • Oh dear, think they just do a direct translation from the original language, without thought, the results can be utter gobbledegook. :bad:

        • Snap Allan :lol: good morning to you too :high-five:

          • It was supposed to be an identical saw to the one that had lasted me for 18 years, It had served me well, But it had been modified so much that the only thing that was the same was the model number, It’s a German company but this one had been built in Italy, I’m not happy and will be telling them as much.

            • Will be interested to know what is said Allan, and if you get any satisfaction from what is an important purchase to you :good: :rose:

          • Morning Ann, :rose:

    Good morning clickers. I was dreaming about Poldark :love: :lol: we had a walk and lunch at Calke. OH painted the shed and I did some gardening. I expect we shall be doing something similar today. Karen, @vegvamp, I can get clickers site on my phone but can’t get in to any of the clicks/groups etc after Duncan’s machinations last weekend. He…[Read more]

    @VegVamp Have had my eyes on the white thingamejig er?? [Campanula] Karen.It’s coming into bud so maybe this is not a good time to send you more … later in the year, nearer Autumn [if we have such a season again] perchance? I haven’t forgotten. :clover: :rose:

    … and hugs for you Karen … I lost my closest cousin very recently … also at sea, a long, sad story, so I know a little of how you are grieving right now. Hugs :love xxxxx :clover: :rose:

    • Thank you Anne, so sorry to hear about your cousin too, I didn’t know you had lost someone recently. :rose: :rose:

      • I couldn’t say straight away Karen, then it seemed, well, I don’t know ….. Marion was my cousin, just ten days older than me. I was looking forward to seeing her in her re-vamped garden and house sometime soon. She was on the QE2 to Oz to visit her oldest brother, and was taken ill on board, somewhere in the Indian Ocean, where after two days,…[Read more]

        • Oh Anne, I am so very sorry, that was awful for you and your family. :rose: :rose: Was she on the Queen Mary 2?

          • Thank you Karen … yes, she was on the Queen Mary 2, thank you for the accuracy :good: She and Prebby never did get to see each other …. so sad :rose:

            • My friends got married on the QM2, crossing the Atlantic, it’s supposed to be a beautiful ship. Such a shame that she didn’t get to see her brother. Though if I had to chose it’s not the worst way to go, on holiday and full of excitement & hope. :love: :rose:

  • Afternoon clickers :-) snowed more or less continually all day and definitely a feel of -6C or more outside :bad: As soon as I put bird food out, it gets snowed on and I’m not sure if anything’s been eaten! However, I’m eating pizza later ;-) Been working most of the day and now it’s time for a bit of feet up! Have a good evening. It looks like…[Read more]

    Downloading from site running slow @vegvamp :rose:

    • Hi Dix, are you getting any error messages? I saw a database error a while ago but it has resolved itself now. If it just the downloading of the pages/photos on the site then it might be your internet speed? Our internet is so bloomin slow that it always takes ages for me to see photos and blogs. :-(

    • Hi Karen…There does seem to be a problem. The site is very slow to load and I have received the message ‘Unable to establish a database connection’ several times today. My internet speed is 65.76 Mbps.

    • Sorry for the delay in getting back, our own internet was down! Aye, I got the host error as well, unfortunately this is a problem with the company that hosts the site, so out of our control. I’ll give Duncan a heads up, though with his present measily state i’m not sure he’ll be too interested. ;-) Think it has resolved this morning?

    I so obviously misread your post, Sheila. I’m sure Karen knows we bow to her computer skills. A Computer is like a submarine. When you open Windows, the trouble begins.

    • :lol: :lol: :lol: I can screw up spectacularly just as well as anyone. ;-) Love the Submarine simile Jane. :lol:
