    Gardening thread

    Love the Orchids - mine flower every year at the same time which is now - one is open and the other has buds - I had one given to me and it flowered every year for 12 years before I lost it. They are just so nice and so easy. Mine gets a dribble of water once a week and never fed. We have 2 at work and one has flowered every year for the 3 years we have had it given by a client who lost her dog and it is nice when she comes in and its flowering once more - and the other one is a new one flowering right now.

    Frustrating weekend ahead

    You are getting it done - try WD 40 to soak into the bolts to loosen them up a bit and try again tomorrow after they are soaked. Will be great once finished

    Frustrating weekend ahead

    Thats very frustrating indeed - is there anyone else who could help you at all? Be careful with the glass. Hopefully he will manage to help at least one of the days to shift it. Maybe you will be too busy to cook this weekend too!!!

    Love that you have resurrected a cooking and food thread. I love the boiled fruit cake and use it every xmas tarted up with cherries and treacle and nuts and also instead of the liquid I use port to boil the fruit with the butter and treacle - it really gives it a fantastic flavour - We still have some left and its still lovely and moist and did not need brandy in it as it has the port. I would love the lemon tart recipe which was Poets if someone still has it - would be grateful.
