      I will :) - promise. Apart from laughing at me, I've been getting well looked after at work today, getting coffee ferried into the office on a regular basis (they pretend not to have sympathy when taking the mickey, but they are a great bunch really).

        Sorry to hear you have been in the wars FC but did have to have a wee giggle re your "coupit yow" impression. I've just spent about 2 hours 1st scrapping the driveway of snow and then another hour dislodging the sheets of ice underneath so that I don't do similar!

          My papa taught me about coupit yows early on in life, and told me if I couldn't roll one back onto its feet myself to go and find someone to help, for a "yow oan 'er back isnae lang tae she's deid" - funny the things that stick, isn't it?

            Absolutely right, we are surrounded by sheep and many a time I've struggled to get a ewe back on her feet.It's vital to get them upright asap as they quickly swell up if left on their backs and seagulls are very adept at killing them, they are a much bigger threat than foxes or eagles.

            I thought just whispering "Mint Sauce" in their ear was enough to get them moving?:scratch::snork:

              Hi All :SUNsmile:

              Nice and sunny, no wind :yes:


              I was well wrapped up and only out for 30 mins, dont shout at me Loli & Jenny :nonofinger: .

              Wrapped up the 4 tree ferns, heavy duty fleece top to bottom 1st layer, then a layer of bubble wrap then another layer of ordinary fleece , fronds bent over into crown and finished of with a pile of leaves stuck in the top, cant do much more they will just have to get on with it now, doesn't look that pretty I suppose I could make them look like thin snowmen !

                Tell him off, Ladies, as Spruce is not at all well and he should have supervised some body doing it for him from the window:nonofinger::snork:

                  Well, I managed to lift my remaining dahlia tubers this afternoon, and planted out my climbing roses (golden showers); in the process, I managed to spill quite a bit of chicken manure pellets on a bit of the lawn, so if I come back to you all next year bemused as to why one bit of my grass is growing faster than the rest, you know the answer................. :biggrin:

                    Aaawww Armandii, I can't tell him off when he offers me music like that to listen to, can I? Spruce, I think it was OK - just 4 banana plants - 30 minutes in the sun. Best medicine there is. No more though,

                          Pruned the climbing rose and cordoned pear tree,raked a load of leaves and cut down a lot of dead stuff frm the herbaceous border. Potted up a few bits and pieces as I went along, the greenhouse is now full so I will have to make the border longer for next spring lol. Cut a bowlful of salad leaves and reset the mousetrap next to the winter lettuce, the little blighters are having too many nibbles.
