    Hello Frank. I have grown Carolus for the last 2 years and I shall this year. It is a good cropper and a good keeper. It is a good all-rounder with blight resistance. We shall be having some with dinner this evening :good:

  • I was looking at buying a few potato setts and came across a variety Carolus, I have not heard of them or know anyone who has tried these, they get a good write up in T&Ms catalogue. Has anybody grown these? if so what is the verdict bearing in mind I only grow in containers now. I would be interested to hear what the panel think.

    Afternoon clickers. We went to Bradgate this morning after all and it was beautifully sunny….couldn’t resist taking more photos, I’m sure you are sick of them by now :lol: Did the ironing this afternoon,changed the bed and washed the bed linen. I was going to dig my bean trench but too cold to be pleasurable but there were two pied wagtails on…

    Good evening Folks :rose:
    We have had a couple of short snow showers … I hope it isn’t too icy on the roads tonight.

    • Evening Anne. Let us hope your snow doesn’t return. Just a few drops of rain this afternoon, otherwise cold and sunny. HAGE :-)

    I am so sorry to have missed this posting because I was away from my laptop while being on holidays. Very sad news and I am sorry to hear of her death. I am sure as gardens we would plant a flower in our garden […]

  • Hello dearest friends, the rain/sleet is on now and it’s going to be freezing tonight. Found almost £55.00 in coins around the house which is going to be used for buying this year’s plants and spuds. Ordered the spuds and onion sets today just need to order my 500 plugs now. Happy Shopping Goldfish…lol

  • We have five beautiful photos so far, and the end of January comes in but a week or so.
    Where are those path sweepers, earth excavator/wrigglers, seed sowers and intrepid early buzzers? I spotted an enormous furry bumble bee on the Winter Honeysuckle again yesterday, but it buzzed off before I could get out my camera! So be prepared and please…[Read more]

Busy Day as usual, Friends coming for Lunch,so going to make Cheese and Onion Soda Bread, with a bit of Sweet Pepper in.

    Morning clickers. An icy start here today but there is a beautifully blue sky to enjoy. Don’t know whether to nip over the plot or continue with the decorating in the living room…will decide after another cup of tea. Had an appointment to see the special needs coordinator at Finn’s school yesterday morning re his dyslexia and she was…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn :-) good to hear you’re hopeful of good support for Finn :good: I’m sure the tea will help with your decision-making :lol: Enjoy the day :-)

      • Morning Jane. I think the tea is a means of delaying the decision ;-) . Could quite happily cosy up under a blanket with my book and not get anything done today. Have been averaging about 5 hours sleep this past couple of weeks and it’s staring to wear me down :yawn: :yawn: :yawn: Yes, we were pleased with yesterday’s meeting. He has been…[Read more]

        • Having this information will give you a lot more confidence in ‘the system’. We should all remember that we’re all on the same spectrum, just at different points of it, whatever it is that’s being looked at :rose:

        • Hi Jenn. That is most encouraging news with the new teacher, I hope it all goes well for Finn.
          I’m glad I’m not the only one feeling exhausted with broken sleep, I was beginning to think I had something awful! The full moon is on the wane now so perhaps sleep will be better ;-)

    • Good :good:
      … and good day Jenn :rose:

      • Morning Anne – it’s a bit nippy out there – stay cosy :rose: I think I may take my own advice :lol:

        • I have just read your reply to Jane and was impressed by your new teacher’s grip on the situation re Finn … and coping mechanisms to process and organise his ideas is good :good:
          All the best Jenn, and yes, you get yourself some relaxation too :good: :rose:

    • Hello Anne :-) might look for the mop and bucket later ;-)

      • :good: I will join you Jane :lol: … we found a bucket with a squeezy inset for the mop the other day: that will save on my fingers!! Must have a go at the kitchen, corridor and bathroom floors again today, after I’ve changed the beds!. :rose:

    Morning Clickers, it’s bloomin freezing AND we have snow. :lost-the-car: so my usual swim is on hold until I see what the roads are like. :fingers-crossed: we will be going to pick up the OH’s car either this afternoon or tomorrow morning, deep sighs of relief. :lol: Have a good day and stay warm. :-)

    Morning clickers. I finished the domestics yesterday with dusted furniture and clean floors :lol: I hadn’t intended going for a walk but it was such a lovely day that I went for 4 miles after lunch and met a few people to chat to en route. Silent witness was good but gory last night ;-) This morning we are going to Swithland Reservoir for a walk…[Read more]

    • Morning again domestic Goddess Cilla. I am enjoying Silent Witness, gore and all. ;-) Wrap up warm if you are out walking it’s very Brrr here. :-)

    • Morning Cilla :-) will watch SW tonight – thanks for the heads up on the gore ;-) Just had a nice walk but the only wildlife was a man and his 3 dogs! Enjoy Swithland Reservoir – wrap up well :-)

    Hi Duncan. How lovely that your mum will be back home. Thank you for letting us know :love:

  • Morning clickers :-) heard rain in the night and the owl at about 5 o’clock. Not only do I have no Plan B today, I don’t really have a Plan A either :lol: Must be something to do with that wolf moon so close to the house ;-) Have a good day everyone :-)

    • Good morning Jane. You are just trying to make me jealous with your owl :lol: That moon is something else, it was almost too bright to look at this morning when I fetched the cameras in. Plan A skipping perhaps, keeping warm will be Plan B I expect. :-)

    • Morning girls, making all of us jealous Cilla. ;-) My plans have just been kiboshed as we have snow! and it’s still falling. :confused: Eeeek. Stay warm both. :-)
