If you’re waiting for photos…

Posted in Uncategorized on April 30th, 2006 by Coffee

Just an update for those waiting for the photos of the splendid Egypt holiday we’ve just been on…

We took 1,129 pictures, and have 60 from the friends we were with too. Of them, we have managed so far to weed out 34 that are just rubbish, 135 that we have better versions of, and 16 that we really like.

So that leaves 1,004 to go! 10% done then. But we’ll get there. One day soon, I hope. It just doesn’t help that we can only manage to last about half an hour a time before one or other of us gets sick of it all.
We’ll keep you updated on progress!

The Forecast, Kinda.

I figure if you’re going to be weather forecaster, you should try to forecast the weather. I love the quote from the forecasters in this article on the BBC news to do with the current drought.

“According to the Met Office, there are equal chances of dry, normal or wet weather for the south of England over the next few months.”

Thanks! I think.

Saying Goodbye.

The time has come tomorrow to say goodbye to some of the chilli plants. They’ve finally got to the stage that they are big enough to leave the house and make their way in the big wide world. And we really don’t have enough room for them all.

Luckily there seems no end to the households that want one, and it’s good to know they will go to good homes.

Packing them up to move house was a pain, but I hope it will be worth it.

The hardest part is working out which of them to keep!


Week 2

Posted in Plants and Gardens on April 2nd, 2006 by Coffee

What a difference a week makes. After being so happy last week that one little plant had popped it’s head up, now I’ve got a chilli forest on the go! Yippee! And as an added bonus, the other type of chilli seeds have decided to start popping up too, just when I’d written them off completely. Now I just have to work out when to upgrade them into larger pots…
