  • ooooohhhh, congratulations Nicos! xx

    This weekend was spent doing a bit at the allotment, moving some shrubs into the chicken run, emptying the compost and taking that to the allotment (to cover more cardboard for no dig), and then food shoppings etc. I was lovely to see good weather again at a time when I'm not stuck at my desk

    • Oh heck, the new curtains are the wrong width. They'll have to do for now. I've had them since November and only just unpacked them, couldn't be bothered until today! Serves me right. I've thrown all the others out. At least they meet in the middle

        • Morning all.

          Another grey day here today. Not much rain in the end yesterday, a bit more than that supposedly today. Otherwise, all good. Loads more work to get through and two mistakes to own up to... So some humble pie to be eaten. Just as well it's not fattening. I get through a fair bit of it.

          So, on with the day. Have a good one, everyone.
          Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

          • Morning, its bright but cold out.I'll need to wrap up well to enjoy being out and about today.

            Flo if your happy with the curtain design could you sow a matching/contrasting fabric to extend them, or maybe turn them into cushion covers.

              • Good morning all.
                A misty start to the day.
                Off out to collect my prescription from the doctors surgery.
                Have a good day all.

                And when your back stops aching,
                And your hands begin to harden.
                You will find yourself a partner,
                In the glory of the garden.

                      Can you not get any help from social services Lottie. It's a bit much to ask you to cope by yourself.

                      • Went out with dog this morning and just kept walking, and walking, and walking! Dog and I were cream crackered when we got home.
                        Still didn't stop me visiting the allotment this afternoon though!

                        • Evening all, a quiet but nice day, video call with both kids and their families, everyone's bearing up, daughters moved to a new house, can't wait to be able to visit. Son is making plans to buy a place too when he leaves the forces after 24 years, he already has job plans on the horizon too, happy day. Take care all.

                          • Good evening all. The weather stayed cool and grey but I got out for a walk
                            Bumped into a friend while I was out and we had a long catchup.
                            pottered in the garden and sowed some seeds.

                            Lottie, I hope you can get some home help or support. It's too much for you to manage on your own.
                            Take care of your own health, you can only do do much.
                            Hoping all works out for you.
                            Have a good night all and stay safe.

                            And when your back stops aching,
                            And your hands begin to harden.
                            You will find yourself a partner,
                            In the glory of the garden.

                            • Morning all.

                              Completely agree with Snadger and Bramble, LD. I know it's not long till you move, but Social Services will even help to coordinate the move to your new area and get you set up with your new Social Services dept.

                              Good news, Burnie.

                              Up early to get a huge file off the internet for work purposes. Downloaded in record time, thank goodness. Sometimes it doesn't half drag on.

                              The weather reports say mostly sunny today. As they all agree, I'll take it that will in fact be the case. Still too dark out there to be sure. Funny to think that in a few months I'll be out there gardening at this time of day to make the most of the cool. Which reminds me, Mr Snoop has put in the posts, fencing will go up this weekend. And with any luck I shall find time to start off some seeds, or at least get things ready. Loads of work to get through first, though.

                              Have a great day, everyone.

                                Agreeing with the others Lottie . But only you will ‘know’ when you need to ask for the extra help....but don’t make things harder for yourself x

                                Quick brew...then need to crack on with ‘stuff’
