NOTE
1) Although I have classed work in the old part of the conservatory as being indoors in actual fact its more outdoors than indoors due to the fact that although it has all its walls there is no longer any roof so I guess you could say that it was inside out.
2) Due to popular demand Bob’s Banquets are back. To avoid intrusion in to my work book I’ve decided to list the contents of my trough in its very own section so all those who are interested see below.

BOB’S BANQUETS
Breakfast: 1 mug of tea and 3 Shredded Wheat
Tea Break: 1 mug of tea.
Lunch: 1 mug of tea, 1 bowl of homemade leek and potato soup, 2 slices of bread, and 4 slices of malt loaf.
Dinner: 1 glass of peach juice and tonic water, mashed potatoes, peas, fish fingers and parsley sauce.

COMMENTS FROM THE POTTING SHED
Sara you will be pleased to see that taken heed of your wishes.

Jim The garden centre is only a couple of miles down the road, I did feel a bit guilty that it took me an hour actually but I checked out a few other things while I was there so it took a bit longer than it need have done. I’m glad you’re still enjoying the pictures from the Pennine Way. I’m not really sure what was going on with the roses, I don’t think they actually took anything just either left it on the floor or still half attached to the rose bush which has resulted in quite a bit of die back in places due to the fact that it wasn’t pruned back to a bud.

Yes, I like the menu bit too! It's funny how often the most interesting bits of blogs aren't the "how I met the Queen" moments, but the everyday things.

Gday Bob,Sorry ive been a bit slow but just seem to have been feeling a little lost the last couple weeks..but ive picked myself up and im back bowling.
Looks like you had a varied day from checking sheep to sweeping the paths. your weathers warming up enough to start planting the borders. Bob's banquet look very nice indeed home made leek soup.. Yummmy.

You sound busy. I'll look forward to your post on Geranium cuttings, but no rush. I know what it's like to be busy and tired. (I always find with my job that I do great with all my kids, and then am horrible at paper work, because it just sounds exhausting at the end of the day. Thankfully the term just ended!)
