Tuesday 25 August, C and I headed north up the famous M1 to visit my uncle and aunt. It was my uncle's birthday and he was 88 years young. When we got there he was in the garden picking green beans from a row 8 foot tall. His greenhouse was full of cucumbers and tomatoes, and potatoes, beetroot, cabbages, cauliflowers and carrots all lined up together in regimental rows.

Once in the house he told us he had been to the supermarket to do ...

The Pond ~ Completed :)

By: sandiquiz, 7:26 AM GMT on August 08, 2015





As I said in the previous blog, I have had to replace the pond fountain and filter, which has been slowly getting weaker for a couple of month. I invested in brand new filters, but to no avail, so after checking when I bought it, June 2012, I found it had given three years of continuous service, so now will be pensioned off!

I changed the maker and model, decid...

Many years ago, w...

It is time to replace the Coffee Blog - don't worry, it will come back! lol

Coffee Blog :)

By: sandiquiz, 1:12 PM GMT on May 26, 2015




I had promised to update the blog yesterday, but I seemed to lack both the energy and the imagination.

Then this morning, Bogon said he had awoken and thought of coffee, which in turn made him think of me and my "coffee Blog"..... so here it is.










So, pull up a chair, throw a cushion on the floor, make your favourite coffee, or tea if you prefer, and come and "chat a while"...
