    I have been using Half Spoon for several years, Jenny @yewbarrow– but a couple of spoons of that in every mug of coffee I drink every day still represents a horrifying amount of sugar and empty calories – but Half Spoon a great tip for anyone who still uses ordinary sugar. Thanks Jenny.

    • worth a try BS – have cut back on sugar greatly in this house, OH is type 2 so find most things we used to have are so sweet they are almost un-eatable, hope you find a solution soon

    Can see that the Girl Guides taught you to spot opportunities and seize initiatives, Jenny. @yewbarrow

    @Yewbarrow Hi jenny… how went the viewing day? Any move in view yet?
    HAGA …I’m back off to the garden … laters :high-five: :rose:

    • no offers yet Anne – but we have had more viewings with the new agent in 10 months, than we had in 4 years with the previous agent. its a big house, needs work doing, if someone likes to put their own stamp on places but a lot just want to move in and do nothing, we know it is in better shape than when we moved in – ha ha but we like a project. -…[Read more]

    @Yewbarrow Hi Jenny :high-five: I missed you this morning…hope you had a good day :good: :rose:

    • Thnks Anne, not been on here much just lately, life seems to get in the way a bit at the moment, with spring just about to burst out I should be more focussed on gardening and my gardening friends

      • Your focus is your own Jenny … it’s good for us to be so busy, and I suspect your busy-ness is with lovely grandchildren :love:
        HALD :rose:

    @Yewbarrow Hi Jenny :high-five:
    I so often miss you that I will wish you a lovely weekend NOW. :good: :rose:

    You won’t find a fully signed up supporter of it in me Jenny.
    Dependance is never a recipe for success I feel and ..Cheep.. is not always good (goods or services), plus depleting ones skills because you can get something from the other side of the world is plainly ..Mad ! Oil is allowing this to happen anyway ..No oil= No transport =…[Read more]

  • @Yewbarrow
    Where would that be then Jenny ??

  • @Yewbarrow
    All part of this “Oh Sooooo Wonderful” ..Globalisation …Idea Jenny :bad: . That is a different one for the “Moan Zone” !

  • Morning all :-) a very orange sky here and very windy but no rain. I hope Jenny @yewbarrow is ok and also other friends that storm’s way. Won’t be going further than the shop for the paper – stay safe and dry everyone :-)

    • Enjoy your day Jane and your paper ponder. :-)

    • I’ve also been wondering about Jenny – and hope she lives up a hill somewhere in Cumbria, and was not trying to get through on the roads to check on her daughter. Think there will now be a major shift away from homes built on river flood plains because of climate change – because it’s going to keep happening.

      • Thank you so much BS and others for your thoughts, yes our town is very hilly, one bit does flood as you come into the town and they have had some but most of us including us two are ok, no electricity from about 10 last night until 9 this morning, but we managed ok, tot of whisky at bedtime by candle light – almost romantic – ha ha! (not) feel…[Read more]

    Has anyone seen or heard from Jenny (@Yewbarrow ) recently? I’ve been missing her.

    • Still here BS – been a bit quiet and reflective – close family member passed away fairly suddenly so OH and I have had a bit to get our heads around – thanks v.much for your thoughts its nice to be missed – I’ve still visited GC but not contributed much and have been planting seeds and getting stuff organised for the great spring arrival – which…[Read more]

      • Relieved to know you are OK Jenny, and sorry for your loss. I haven’t been about much recently, but I did notice your quietness. Haven’t started the Spring thing yet, but trying hard to get there. So glad to have seen you, and can stop wondering…..

    Re what you said about the colours turning gently. You are right Jenny :yes: In France they are way ahead, thinking of that wonderful Virginia creeper in the hedgerows. Mine is still a delicate peachy pink! …and that patchwork tree in CPPark [beginning of blog, ‘Patchwork Park’ in odds and sods] was still a patchwork when I walked…[Read more]
