    You have my sympathies , we found the same, every time we went to B&Q never spent under a £100, mind you its a 40+ mile round trip. It will all be worth and more cost effective :good:

    • Ditto for us too. And last time we went, they loft insulation we wanted was soaking wet so no use to man nor beast. Wasted trip.

    Thankyou Karen & Jane :good:
    We have had some rain Jane, more later and I think it’s spreading your way.
    Yes I impressed myself Karen, since giving up work just before we moved, I didn’t then have to deal with rush hour driving, then moving to the country I tend to plan around the traffic, it’s surprising how you lose some confidence when you…[Read more]

  • Morning all, a quick hello before my battery gives up!!!! Shopping this morning and whatever I can find to do this afternoon, as it looks like a lot of rain heading this way from about 12pm if the radar is to be beleived.

    Evening Hayley, I can smell the lavender, I have lots of lavender, white and pink, I’m planning on having a lavender edge to the path which runs under the lounge &bedroom window :good: it’s been covered in bees ours hopefully!!!
    House moving is a stressful long winded process, so you’ll need lots of lavender visits. Have you found anything to buy…[Read more]

    Evening Jenn, they are trying to improve king’s Lynn with lots of areas being regenerated, they have lots of nice shops, that we don’t have in Ely &it’s less manic than Cambridge.
    Hope you get a good night’s sleep, sounds like a 5am start to me!!!!!!

  • Morning all, we have rain, so the garden is getting a good water :good: :good: I did smile to myself as before I was a gardener I would of grumbled at the rain, now I welcome it and says glad I got the lawn mowed, that flower bed weeded, that hedge trimmer before the rain!!!!!
    Off for my pre assessment for my op on the 30th July at kings lynn…[Read more]

    • Morning Lynn, we had our rain yesterday and it’s cleared a bit this morning. :good: Didn’t know you were going in for an op at the end of the month honey, :-( :rose: hope the assessment goes as easily as possible. A bit of retail therapy sounds just the job for you. :cool:

    • Morning Lynn :-) we had a tiny bit of rain in the night – not enough. Op? I hope it’s not mega serious and that the assessment goes well :fingers-crossed: :rose: King’s Lynn isn’t big enough to get lost in, I’m sure, so enjoy the shops :-)

      • Morning Lynn. Good luck on the pre. op. We intend going to see the old quarter of Kings Lynn when we go to Norfolk in October, apparently it is quite interesting. Enjoy your retail therapy post hospital :-)

    • Hope you enjoyed Kings Lynn, Lynn :-) We were there many years ago and our cab driver who was taking us to a club (shows just how long ago :lol: :lol: ) said KL was the arse end of Norfolk :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: I hope you found it nicer and didn’t get lost.

    Morning Ginny, every cloud has a silver lining :good:
    Not sure what your Dr can do apart from issue a sick note, as your boss sent you home, very unusual as most bosses don’t usually get that involved, unless the illness or accident was done or caused by work!! you self certify for the first week, or has that changed?
    I’d just go with the flow…[Read more]

    Morning Jane, your very good on your butterflies, Ido notice different ones in my garden, but don’t know their names!!
    I noticed my white jap anemone has buds on it, seems a bit early??but as it’s mainly green and taking over it will be good to see some colour on it. Enjoy your day 💐💐🍵☕

  • Morning all, a beautiful sunny start, temps are due to get to 25d, some shade gardening!!! Have the last bit of box hedge to trim, that’s in the shade,plus the grass needs mowing.

    Morning Karen, safe journey and hope the day goes well.
    It’s sunny here and set to be about 25d, so I will be finding some shade, the last box hedge is in mainly shade, so that looks like today’s job along with some grass mowing.
    Hope you get your gardening in :clover:

  • Evening all, the grey has been replaced by lovey sunshine.

    Evening Jane, sometimes it feels as though I have muscles on muscles :lol:

    Afternoon Johnmichael, :giggle: Pilates has helped, but stiff feel very stiff and sore, especially lower back and around my upper back, shoulder area. You know what they say, ‘if you don’t use it you lose it’ plus I’ve managed to lose a 1.5 lb since last Monday, that’s with a fish &chip supper and a bar of chocolate on our fat Friday :good: :good:

  • Morning all,a grey mizzly start to the day! A busy weekend with lots of time out in the garden, not what I call nice gardening though, lots of clearing out area’s is the big border next to the drive, was a excess plant dumping ground when we moved in, which I revamped with some shrubs last year and mulched, well the mulch disappeared and the weeds…[Read more]
