    Happy Fathers Day

    Happy Fathers Day to all of you. Especially the first timers. Love them to bits X And I hope your Dad deserves his. (How come I'd not think that was so applicable to Mums?)

    The Foodie thread

    I would like a frying pan I can put in the oven. Any recommendations?

    Spring Cleaning

    Full of plastic, aren’t they?https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07d5xx1https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p07d5xx1

    Happy Fathers Day

    It might not have meant much to him but these kind of days are always going to be there. Look after yourself, ted. And everyone else missing their dads. Or other people
  7. Anyone know what happened to Bjornebye? CT? Just noticed that he is now marked as a Registered User. Did I miss something?
  8. I make no secret of my love of long days and warm weather on here but with all that fast disappearing I need to find ways of looking at the cold, miserable (views not shared by all) months of the year differently. I can see there are loads of seasonal foods that are definitely worth their place on here and winter clothes can be quite fun but what other things do people like about this time of year?

    I think you’ll be looking for the Members lounge

    But are you any the wiser, Mudface?

    Who will replace her? NSFT

    My Twitter needs some serious editing. Their self satisfied smary faces popping up all over the show are getting me down

    Just that
  13. I’ve just watched the first episode of Summer of Rockets BBC2 on iplayer. I’ve no idea whether it’s fact or fiction but it’s beautiful to look at

    Classic British Foods

    No! ‘To be fair’. People seem to drop it into sentences where it has no meaning at all. Annoys the life out of me

    Classic British Foods

    (I don’t normally like the expression) but to be fair they are pretty good

    Classic British Foods

    Well, yeah, because there are scotch eggs and there are scotch eggs. There are those dismal, plastic wrapped, mass produced efforts that fester in petrol station chiller cabinets and there are the ones that you get at good delis and farmers type markets which are just fabulous with cold beer on a hot day

    The Pre-Season Thread

    I don’t know who sets the pricing. Is it Scottish Rugby because prices for their matches can be eye watering. But, yeah, a 3 quid charge on every ticket. Ticketbastard indeed

    The Pre-Season Thread

    I’m hoping you managed to get past their selection of £67.50 tickets? Colleague at work had fancied taking his young boys to see some real football but was frightened off after Find Tickets presented him with that offer and then not being able to navigate beyond that. Bloody racket
  19. A site search threw up neko's Gardening thread but that's way to serious for me and I cant even dream to match his professional skills but I do love my garden. Maybe there are others out there who feel the same way or are just putting their toe in the water..... Anyway, we've had a good day today and I've been out continuing my Spring clear up but its really noticeable how far behind things are compared even to last year. I'm planning to replant the bottom of our garden and bulk out some of the other borders that are looking a bit lost at the moment. My veggies were a washout last year but if the weather brightens up in the next week or two I may put some of the more hardy things like courgettes and peas in and cross my fingers. And now I'm having a beer. What's anyone else up to?

    FAO Tony Moanero

    Tony, if you read this, let us know how you are. You wrote on here about your fear that cancer you had had previously had returned and there were many on here who encouraged you to go and see your doctor. I haven't heard from you since the day before the appointment you told us about. I know people are waiting to hear how you are. Thinking about you. Cath

    Just watched the final episode. I’m ragged

    Getting Old

    It was definitely having kids that did it for me. I used to love flying but for years after having the kids I was a soggy-palmed wreck every time I got on a plane. I’ve worked hard at rationalising it but it’s always a huge relief when those wheels hit the tarmac

    I don’t know if I want to watch it. Once I’ve seen it it’ll all be over

    How does your garden grow?

    Are you on ground level or are we talking about a balcony or something as big as a roof garden? Either way if we’re talking about growing things in pots/containers the bigger the container the better for getting enough water in that any plants will be able to tolerate some neglect. Pointers for choosing plants Look around at what seems to grow well for your neighbours Plants that grow in hot climates Plants with grey and/or glossy foliage Have you got space for an olive plant or a fig? Both grow well in pots. You could also grow vegetables and herbs in pots, especially sun loving things like tomatoes, chillies, peppers, basil. And for colour at this this time of year lavender and pelargoniums (geraniums) I’d also go along with neko’s grasses suggestion. How am I doing?
