    • Afternoon all.

      Not surprised you're getting frustrated, LD. Cake sounds like a nice idea, though.

      Getting a bit fed up with our internet connection. Another day on the blink. Otherwise, all good here. Planted out my courgettes last night, but it's a bit hot for them today and they're looking a bit wilty.

      Not much other news. Mr Snoop has taken Frankie to the vet's over her/his eyes. Maybe the vet will be able to confirm if Frankie's a he or a she. And one of the dogs has gone too. She's got a grass seed head in one ear. I don't even like them stuck in my socks or shoes, can't imagine what it's like having one in an ear. I can't see it but she's doing the usual behaviour. We all got away with it last year but evidently not this year.

      Have a lovely evening, everyone. Smiles on the loose, by the way.

      • Good Evening All Fine here but cold. Hope you get your pets sorted out poor things. Shed has been painted today. Might inspire me to do some gardening! Have a pleasant evening

        • Frankie is a he. Mr Snoop is a bit disappointed, I suspect. We're now up to an even balance of males and females in the household. Till we get chickens again, he says.
          Vet says Frankie's five weeks old, so he was just four weeks old when we got him.
          He's very feisty now he's back from the vet's. Antibiotics to be administered orally via pipette. Drops for the eyes. Good luck us... Dogs were glad to see him back, so that's a good sign. And he coped with the welcome, given that there are three of them, all huge, to his tiny self.
          Grass-seed-in-the-ear dog had to be knocked out. We're going to have to get her a bonnet, says Mr Snoop, to keep her ears down. They're very odd ears, neither pricked nor droopy but stick out at the side. She's quite a comical character.

          • Evening its been sunny here all day, real t-shirt weather only spoilt by a couple of showers so not to bad.

            I had my second Covid jab this evening, it's only a 10 min walk down the road in and out again in just 15 mins and that was with 20 people in front of me in the queue they're really efficient.

            Enjoy your evening.

            • Good morning all

              Lovely out there today, 8 degrees and still. Not sure what's on the cards for today but popping over to see family in north Lincs tomorrow so will have to prep for that at some time.

              Have fun

              • Morning Mr Bones, morning all.

                Off out this morning to plant out peppers, aubergines and some lettuce if I have time. All going well, although the basil plants are looking oddly 'burnished'. Can't think of a better word to describe it. Not just one but all of them (about 14). Not sure if it's too much nutrient of some variety from the muck. Nights haven't been that cold, at least not up by the house.

                Slowly but surely getting through the work as well. Thank goodness.

                Have a good day all. Bag of biscuits and a sack of smiles over by the kettle. Help yourselves and have a good day.

                    Quite bright this morning but have decided to give the bricklaying a miss for today as I am aching all over. It could have summat to do with the hand weeding I did at allotment yesterday afternoon though.
                    Seeds to sow (beetroot and spinach) today and devote rest of day to housework and my home garden.

                    • Morning all.
                      Sunny and still outside, I've been sorting seeds, sowed 2 types of kale and need to find a corner for radishes, beetroot and lettuce. I try beetroot every year, but I think it needs more water than I'm prepared to give it, and I'm not over keen on radishes, but I've got the seeds so they may as well be sown
                      Hope everybody's animals recover/heal/behave

                      Have a good day all.

                              • Afternoon n’alln’all

                                Bit late checking in...but I’ve been a Domestic Goddess in the kitchen trying to use up some eggs - we’ve given away 2 dozen and with all my baking were down to.....

                                4dozen eggs!

                                pecan pie; coffee, pecan and raisin cake , plus coconut and mango cake.

                                I’ll get there in the end even if it means freezing some. I don’t want to fill the freezer with cake for obvious reasons!
                                Had enough of being indoors...need to do something constructive outside again.

                                We’ve had really mixed weather again.... cold hosepipe rain with rumbling thunder followed by hot sunshine and blue skies.

                                I might nip out now and start weeding the drive again....
