    morning all, sun doing its best but a bit murky here too, very damp outside, surrounding fields waterlogged so if it could dry up a little bit would be grateful, off shopping shortly and then something or other to keep me occupied for the rest of the day, not sure what yet. Enjoy your day folks

    • HAGD Jenny :-) I have been out to fill the bird feeders, and seen lots to do out there, but my “Get-up-and-go” is still in vacation mode :confused: ;-) Will send some sunshine, it’s lovely here in CP. :rose:

    morning all, well that’s another week gone – phew! the storm was quite something, no real damage here fortunately, apart from 5 hours without electricity yesterday morning, breakfast by candle light – so romantic – or not, conservatory started leaking on the side which doesn’t get the weather – had house viewing due as well – but today the sun…[Read more]

    love our local panto and “opera” show too Hayley, I often spend ages trying to work out where I know the cast from cos with make-up and constume they all look so different – great fun to watch and their dedication and professionalism, never mind talent is always appreciated

    morning all, sun sort of showing itself but quite cloudy and a bit colder in the wind. Off for pub lunch today, no special reason, OH just thought it would be a change enjoy your day folks

    • Afternoon Jenny. How nice to have an OH who takes you off to the pub for your sunday lunch, I hope you enjoyed it :-)

  • standard compost for me, our local nursery has done a deal with nursery trade and we can buy the same stuff they use – it is great, I use a propagator for starting most of my seeds, although some just go in the cold greenhouse, prick on as soon as seedlings are big enough and keep doing it until plants are big enough for final transplant

    morning all, frosty and grey here today, off to church shop shortly. A flight of geese flew over last night about 10pm, could see them just, about 60 birds flying north west, what are they telling us – spring not far off, or bad weather coming in and they are finding somewhere better – who knows – enjoy your day folks

    morning all from a sort of sunny south lakes, after a fairly dreary few days the sun has tried to show itself, ground too wet to do anything outside but will potter about have a good day each wherever you are
