Re: Gardening

Apparently, ear trees like hard pruning so that's what it gets. With us only having a small front garden we generally have to lop a few branches off each year after it has shed. It always comes back and tends to fruit biannually.

Joinery shop was Grange's when I was a lad. We lived on Craven Street so this whole area was part of my playground along with Wellhouse and Havre Park.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Clearing out of the way when Sally's hairdresser comes to sort her out. I can stay and watch but I will have to sit there with my mask on. I will make myself a brew and clear off upstairs to play with my radio station. :biggrin2:

Cant remember where Kev posted it but the Freesat/Humax On Demand services are back on my box anyway. One thing I noticed when they were missing yesterday was that if I instigated a YouTube video on my phone I could still cast it to the TV, despite that being one of the missing On Demand services on...
