Re: The To Do List

I hope you are ok, Action. I felt so upset and stressed, I ended up sleeping all afternoon, yesterday. I felt guilty and was going to start gardening early today (perfect gardening weather) but then neighbour started using a circular saw on his brickwork. A horrible, headache-inducing noise and it m...

Re: The Games Thread

Zinnias. Mine don't smell but I gather some do.

Here's one I grew (from seed) earlier :)

Re: The To Do List

Luna <:)> I hope it goes ok. I was bullied and ostracized at school too. Funnily I have a lot of these people (not the bullies but the ones who didn't want much to do with me) as 'friends' on FB. I do suspect that many of them still look upon me in the same way that they did. I was not 'one of them'...

Re: The Games Thread

Watermelon :) Ideally juiced with ice. I have a huge slice in the fridge right now.

Re: The To Do List

Sorry about that, Luna. Horrible. This is part of the territory alas. Bottles will stop turning up in the end and distrust will turn to trust. But it can take quite a long time. It sounds like you are really stuck re your ex if you are having such recurrent dreams about him. I suppose as long as he ...

Re: The To Do List

Hello I am imploding a bit and it' only 10.50ish. It's all a snowball effect. You know when one too many things is causing stress and then everything else, which might otherwise be small enough to not worry too much about, sticks to it and it gets bigger and unmanageable. But it's quite hard to unst...

Re: The To Do List

Stephen Fry once came into the shop I worked and pretty much presented his Platinum card in a similar manner. It must have been just a few weeks before he did his infamous runner while performing in a run of a West End play... Either you've mentioned this before, Rachel, or I heard from friends/col...

Re: The To Do List

So glad you found them, Danny. Horrid when that happens. We were talking about Access cards the other day, coincidentally. Didn't the cheque to pay the bill go to Swindon? (A little even before my time, perhaps, but I remember my parents doing it.) Remember the msug Am Ex Gold ad? Name drop alert: S...

Re: The To Do List

Re drinking. (Not much teenage drinking for me. I didn't really get going with it until my late 20s, although when I did drink earlier on, the signs were there in the way I tended to do it.) I am pretty sure I am currently safe. I actively don't want to drink. But I feel I should think about it stil...

There were so very many potential S's... (funnily enough.) Hats off for not choosing one with the word Summer in it :)

Re: The To Do List

I wasn't going to bother with runners but I ended up buying a dwarf one which can go in a pot. I got about 8 broad bean plants, but this isn't really enough is it... Peas, it's ok to not have enough of, as you can just eat them off the plant, but broad beans require more effort. I planted lots of dw...

Re: The To Do List

I love watermelon juice. Not had it for ages. A local cafe used to do it freshly. I didn't get as much done as I wanted to. Ended up going out. I almost had a bad fall (tripped on a paving stone) but careered into a wall instead but it really shook me for a silly amount of time, and I ended up going...

Re: The To Do List

Morning. I am ready to garden :? It's very wet under foot out and lots of slugs and snails munching on my dahlias, amongst other things. I have an alstromeria in a pot. Should I pot it on or plant it out? Do they get very big? To do in the garden: Minimum: pot on lots of tomatoes if possible: pot on...

Re: The To Do List

I got my compost. This is for stuff in pots, Luna I make it as well but the homemade stuff is not generally considered to be good enough for pots. Anyway the plant is to pot up as many tomatoes as I can this weekend. Would have done some today, but it rained solidly all day. Also got a new coffee ma...

Re: The To Do List

Goodness, Luna! That’s a big full on list. I planted a few more calendula this evening. I like the smell of the leaves. I expect them to have been slugged each morning after planting. I had some stuff that you water on which is supposed to make things unpalatable to them. Not sure if its working or ...

Re: The To Do List

I have done this many times at work. It is usually so much quicker to re-do that one wonders why it took so much time in the first place - all that thinking time I guess. Still it's a heart stopping moment when it happens. And of course my writing for work is rarely pages of stuff. I hope it wasn't ...
