Re: First Day of Spring?

Absolutely glorious day here. Wall to wall sunshine this morning and now just a few fluffy white clouds. Snowdrops and crocus looking lovely, tete a tete daffs just starting to open.
I am officially out of hibernation :D

Re: Very sad news

That really is very sad Catherine. Depression can be a dreadful illness and it isn't always treated with the seriousness it deserves.
I do hope that you can continue to remember happier times and don't upset yourself too much.
I feel for you,
Jude.

Chicken & leek pie

Not my recipe, all credit to Nigel Slater though, (check out BBC food). Used my 2 best leeks and tested this out in my new cooker. Delicious and loads left for eating cold. Almost followed recipe to the letter (unusual for me!), did add a crumbled chicken stock cube to the filling.

Re: Bonfire night fundraising & teeth.

Can empathize with the tooth thing,Peter, I had a large multi-rooted molar removed last Friday (under sedation, thank goodness). Unfortunately it's got infected so now I'm on Metronidazole for 5 days, no alcohol until 48hrs after the course is finished. It's my 60th birthday on the 7th. NOT FAIR!!! ...

Re: Take a day off work to garden ? -

Richard and Westi, very much with both of you there! Soooo much wanting to retire, 60 this year but still another 2 and a half to go before state pension pays more than my part-time job. Only other pension will pay diddly-squat. There was a downside to having a child at 45! Still, she keeps me young...

Re: Take a day off work to garden ? -

Gardening is work, of course, but it can be so therapeutic. I had a day off last week with a heavy cold, felt rotten and didn't want to pass it on to my elderly clients. Pottered over to my plot with the dog, 'just for a look'. 2 hours and a bit of tidying up later I felt great!!

Re: Supermarket Con !

I've been shopping at A---- for the past 20 or so years. The quality has improved greatly over that time and I reckon it is up to 50% cheaper on the basic items. Also, what you see is what you get. Occasional disappointments, but generally fantastic value for money and absolutely no quibble refund/r...
