Re: Weather

They are forecasting snow in Dordogneshire on Saturday- we're well South and won't get any. It's 12C air temperature here and much warmer in the sun. 'T' shirt weather it is, but has to be covered with a quilted shirt! Seen on the news, in-between the Brexit farce, there are going to be restriction...

Re: Weather

Weather here has been really mild so far, although it's forecast to get much colder from tomorrow night, with "warnings" of heavy frost - it's mid January, so heavy frost is really to be expected! But the tabloids are going on as if it's the coming of the apocolypse! "Sub-zero temps!" "Widespread fr...

Re: Sorting old photos

Oh good grief! Look at this old ad! I wonder if these are still available? After 30 years, my asthma has flared up quite badly again, and I've had to go back on daily inhalers. Maybe I should give ciggies a go? :D :D

Re: Sorting old photos

The one I really wish I’d kept was me in a Haliborange advert. I was a blue eyed baby (in B and W of course) Now, to quote Arthur Daley, I’ve “got a boat like a slatehangers nail bag”. This isn't you, is it? Although this looks like a little girl. https://www.alamy.com/stock-image-1950s-old-vintage...

Re: Sorting old photos

We have a private family facebook group, and I also have a private fb group for my late husband's family. I post any pics there. I just print them for myself. I like to look back in albums, rather than online.

Sorting old photos

I've been sorting through a basket of photos that has sat on my kitchen floor for several years, and I'm putting them in albums. I've come across some wonderful ones, including one taken in 1999, about two weeks before my dad was diagnosed with leukaemia. He's standing at their front door with mum a...

Re: Gardening

It's so mild here, yesterday afternoon I mowed the small lawn behind the house! The rest of the lawns were too wet for the mower, but I started the strimmer and used that to knock down some of the other lawns where it was getting too long. I was so delighted with myself, being able to do that, in Ja...

Re: Gardening

By cleavers, do you mean the tall thin green weed that drapes itself over the hedges and sticks to your gloves when you pull it out? I've heard it called stickyweed and lover's touch, but also goosegrass, and chickens love it. At the moment I'm collecting a bagful of lovely tender shoots on the dog...

Re: Gardening

Only one of the apple trees is a full size. It wasn't meant to be! The rest are all either dwarf or half-standard. Several are growing at mad angles, because William didn't stake them properly (or at all!). I'm planning to put in a couple of extra Jonagolds, because they're a favourite of dau's fami...

Re: Gardening

That's what I should start doing, Marigold. Pruning the apple trees, of which there are too many. About 14 I think. I've no idea how to prune properly, so I'll just chop away. It's mild today, so I might actually do something outside. I'm definitely NOT a natural gardener. Just seems to be so overwh...
