    morning folks, well still here, still not moved – house half packed, hold up is local council who have to answer query raised by legal bods for buyer who is buying our buyers house, yes it gets that confusing, council have postponed meeting 3 times, so we just wait and wait – OH is in permanent state of melt down, me a bit more calmer, having to…[Read more]

    • Oh Jenny, I feel for you :love: Good luck :good: :rose:

    • Hi Jenny ,you have my sympathies, we had a similar problem when we moved 4yrs ago, the 1st house being sold had a problem that needed the local council involved, there were only 4 houses involved in the chain,thankgoodness. It’s a big investment for everyone so it does need to be right. It will happen you’ve come to far now. :rose: :rose:

    good stuff Anne, we started using it a few years ago – used to spend a fortune on special rose fertiliser until we caught up with blood bone etc.

    Still here folks, as the move slowly grinds on – late June a possible now, but hey ho it will happen. Lots of rain here the last few days, very excited as we have a family of sparrows in the garden, used to have loads when we first came, they’d dust bath and flit around then they disappeared, no sign at all, last year they appeared in the garden…[Read more]

    • How lovely to have sparrows again. See hardly any here these days and I miss their cheerful chatter :-) :rose:

    morning folks, another beautiful day here, enjoying the sun – got all planting done on plot at the weekend, it will have to take its chances as nights are a bit chilly, but apart from a bit of weeding and watering I can tick that off my list – no further with firm moving date, our buyers can’t do the suggested date, they’ve got queries to sort…[Read more]

    rain all day so far, busy emptying wardrobes, about to empty airing cupboard, found loads more for charity shop and bit more for council tip, sometimes wonder if we will end up with nothing at the new house – ha ha – been to tip and charity shops so much so far, and I know there will be more – enjoy your day folks

    • Jenny … you are such a good example :-) …. sigh … one day maybe I will sort out too :lol: It has been raining most of the day here too, and just as the sun shows its face the clouds rush back and tip their rain down again ! Good for the garden :good: HAPeacefulE :rose:

    • Morning Jenny :-) Have you got a moving date yet?

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    Still here clickers, family coming for last visit to house before move, know we are not there yet but only day everyone could get together. OH is rather like a headless chicken about it all, bless, wish I could sedate him until it is all over, getting more stressed with him than with the actual move, hopefully have the move date finally confirmed…[Read more]

    morning folks, still here, still packing, almost considering putting staff at local tip on Christmas Card list – how on earth do we collect so much “stuff” – charity shops have been visited a few times each week too – weare getting there – I think – managed to get some stuff planted out on allotment and will sort rest in the next couple of weeks,…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenny. Good luck with that – the thought of moving again gives me the collywobbles :lol:

      • Good morning Jenny ,,, bravo on all that :mad: I think you will be pleased that moving has made you sort out…I need to as well [sort out I mean] but I try and then can’t face it and put it off until the next time!
        How lovely to keep your lottie though … it’s like a familiar base to pivot around as you move . Keep up the good work … and…[Read more]

        • Hi Jenny. Moving is definitely good for sorting your stuff….we moved 4 times in a short time and now there is hardly any clutter left :lol: Have a good weekend :-)

    • Continuing fingers crossed for your move, Jenny :fingers-crossed:

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 2 months ago

    afternoon all, yes I am still here, bit ragged around the edges, bit of a lull in moving activities, we’ve to have survey done on bungalow, more for our peace of mind than anything else and waiting to sort actual moving date out – have been packing stuff up for the past 2 weeks, OH has a train set (an some) that has taken him weeks to dismantle…[Read more]

    • Crikey Jenny … you sure do have your work cut out!
      I understand the ‘tensions?’ between you and OH re packing … here it would be the other way round with the Teds!!! :lol: Best of luck :lol:
      How difficult with the growing season too … as I remember last year when I just wasn’t there for the plants … but that was different.
      Again Jenny … all…[Read more]

      • Hi Jenny. I was the chief packer when we moved several times ;-) We had to have a separate removal van for all our plants and garden stuff. It will all come right in the end. We shall look forward to hearing about the new place when you finally move in.

  • I have the same as Cilla Anne it is ok, does the job and didn’t cost a lot from memory

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 2 months, 2 weeks ago

    morning all, from a sort of sunny South Lakes, plan to have a run (in the car I hasten to add) up the coast later, just for a change of scenery, house sale etc. is at the waiting stage, buyer had structural survey done here this week so it is waiting for things to move on Enjoy your day folks

    • Morning Jenny – enjoy your jaunt and fingers crossed everything runs smoothly with the house sale :fingers-crossed: It is a nerve wracking time :excruciating: Are you staying local and do you have somewhere to move to when the house sells?

    • Fingers crossed for you, Jenny :good:

    they will grow very well outside Anne, as garlic needs a bit of cold to get it going well, I sometimes buy mine from the supermarket veg section and sometimes I buy “proper” ones from seed company – both grow ok

    lovely little bird, they breed quite happily in my garden, had a very good result last season quite a good clutch of new birds, daughter calls them LBJ’s little brown jobbies

  • Yewbarrow replied to the topic Is this Mahonia? in the forum Gardening Questions 3 months ago

    a nice shrub to have at this time of the year, may be followed with black berries which the birds like – the blue tits also like the flowers

    morning all from a snowy/sleety/rainy south lakes – take your pick we’ve had the lot over the last couple of hours – thunder storm yesterday morning too and then sun all afternoon, couldn’t get bored with the weather this weekend – ha ha – had an offer for our house which we have accepted, in a bit of a daze really after all this time and don’t…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenny and congratulations on getting an offer. Fingers crossed for the rest of it now. Do you have your eye on somewhere you want to buy? And will you stay local? I thought I had the morning to potter as these gales were supposed to hit this afternoon, according to the forecast but the rubbish weather is here right now.

    • Good luck with the house sale, Jenny :fingers-crossed: I echo Jenn’s questions ;-) HAGD :-)
