  • Morning all, well that was a very eventful afternoon & evening with us getting home about 12.30 am!!!! I turn a turn for the worst in the afternoon couldn’t stop being sick, even the water wouldn’t stay down& the nausea was really bad, so we ended up at a minor illness/ injury clinic in Peterborough for 10.45 appointment, it’s 35 mi!es away took…[Read more]

    • Good morning Lynn. Oh poor you, that is a horrible thing to have and to have to travel as well must have been awful and very scary. I hope you feel better soon with the tablets……arowroot biscuits are good. :rose:

    • Oh, Lynn, how awful for you! And what a ridiculous thing about having to go to the same chemist for more tablets! I hope it gets cleared soon. Just knowing you’ve ‘got something’ will probably help you to get on the mend. Good morning and I hope it’s a good day :rose:

    • Oh Lynn, that is horrible for you. Hope you feel better very soon honey. :rose: :rose: :rose:

    • Absolutely horrible, Lynn – and make sure you keep your fluids up. I did comment here before I went upstairs to get dressed – but it seems to have disappeared, or hasn’t registered. I’m glad OH is taking the day off to keep an eye on you, very wise.

    • Oh Lynne, what a drama. Gastroenteritis is just gawd awful. Rest, liquids, any medication going and hopefully it will pass soon. I had my fair share of this when I worked in schools. Glad to hear you have your OH home to look after you. Take care and a speedy recovery lovey :rose: :rose: :rose:

    • Hope you soon feel better Lynn, sending Hugs x

  • Isn’t it amazing that all our plants are doing so well, after such a lots of cold temps, they have suddenly all burst into bloom
    together :good: lots of lovely colour too. :rose:

  • Well after what seemed like a slow start to spring in the garden it’s finally catching up. Here are just a few blooms from the garden.

    Some of my clematis.

    Pleased with the aqugelia blue star, […]

    Wow, what a lovely early morning visiter :-) is it a red deer? Doesn’t look like a munkjac!

  • Afternoon all, memorial service went well, it was a mixture of happiness and sadness, she has left a lovely legacy with lots of people, she was a keen gardener and gave away lots of plants,along with strawberry& raspberry’s so lots of her friends have memories of her in their gardens, her 4 son’s were full of praise for her, she really was a…

  • Morning all, offinto the garden shortly, after I’ve made a quiche, we are off to Leicester this afternoon for our friends memorial service, think her death has been on my mind, so gardening will be good, like Jane no TV or news checking, I’m sure the wedding will be the topic of this week’s news all week!!!!!!! We didn’t get all this fuss last…[Read more]

    • Good morning Lynn :high-five: It is our son’s Wedding Anniversary today, so that is the reason for me to remember the date, but I wish Harry and Meghan well too :rose:
      What can I say … it’s a beautiful day here, so I hope the Memorial Service is tinged with joy for her Life as well as sadness for the ending of it. :love: :rose:

      • Hello Lynn. I hope the day went well and you celebrated your friend’s life. Which part of Leicester was it? And your garden will give you solace when you return :rose:

    Thankyou, you lovely clickers, had a good gardening day after the food shopping, it was surprisingly empty both in Aldi & Sainsbury’s.
    Thinned out the parsnips, carrots, beetroot. Pleased to see little lettuce & radish seeds appearing, also noticed some goosgogs, so have done a temporary netting job with bamboo canes, plant pots & netting :good:[Read more]

    A very productive day Karen, know what you mean about the vine weevil,found them in one of geranium cuttings!! They were dispatched to the bird feeder :good:
    Hope the drink was good :-)

    • Evening Lynn, :lol: :lol: that was just iced lemon barley, but the wee glass of vino I’m having now is most pleasant. ;-) Those vine weevils are sneaky beggars. :bad: You had a good day?

    Brilliant Cilla. :good:

  • Evening all, realised I haven’t really clicked this week, have been busy in the garden and greenhouse, lots of planting on, watering, and weeding and sowing of seeds, to help with my mood of pending despair, sorry to sound so dramatic,but sometimes life really dishes out some c..p, OH’s car is now going cost between £500-600 it fixed and is…[Read more]

    • Oh Lynn, what an utter pain in the @r$e. :-( And not nice if a job is not going well on top of everything else, that is hard, hope your lovely OH can get that sorted. :clover: You’re right though sometimes listing the positives can help. We’re here if you need us honey, sometimes a good whinge does wonders too. :rose:

    • Double bugga, Lynn. I remember vividly the pervasive anxiety I sometimes felt in my younger years when finances seemed impossibly stretched – it’s truly horrible. But I just have this faith that you and OH will get through it, and life will be sweet again. It’s amazing how much we women can save on the housekeeping when we put our minds to it -…[Read more]

    • Good morning Lynn :-) Glad the car is sorted but sorry to hear of your other worries :rose: It’s at times like this that you’re absolutely right to be positive about what’s going well and growing your own means healthy eating and having lovely plants to brighten you up :rose:

      • A worrying time for you Lynn but it will pass and, as the others said, you will have your garden for therapy and lots of fresh food. You winge to us any time you like, that’s what we’re here for :love: :rose:

    • What a pain Lynn but with the new laws on tanks and the possibility of splitting you have no option :-( A busy day here Lynn. Sainsburys, made a salad and a coleslaw, hygienist, library, ironing and then managed to sit down and finish my book. Off to put the cosmos back in g/h. Enjoy your evening. :-)
