Mother's Day

Mother's Day tomorrow. Kids are excited about delivering presents and flowers and breakfast in bed to their Mum.

Time for me to pause and think about my Mum, Kit who passed away on 19th December 2002. She was a great Mum to all of us (Terry, me, Stephanie & Richard) and a wonderful wife to our Dad, George, who still misses her terribly. There's not many days go buy when I don't think about her, so Mum, if you're listening, Happy Mother's Day for tomorrow.

Spring is coming - is it?

My conservatory is starting to look like a greenhouse. It's full of seedlings and young plants. The raised bed of a couple of posts ago has been built (and already has mixed salad, parsnips, carrots and peas grwoing in it (albeit slowly) in this late winter weather.
I've also got 3 different types of tomatoes, onions, basil and coriander on the go, plus a variety of annual flower seedlings. Today I planted out some perennials received in the post. If it all comes off it should be great!

City Talk

Well, City are still in with a shout of he play-offs, but losing 3-1 to derby today didn't help. On the bright side, work has started on the long awaited replacement stadium for Ninian Park, but it won't be readyuntil at least Christmas 2008....
We've bought our season tickets for next year. We haven't even finished this season yet, but £370 for me and my son to watch a seaon just seemed like to good an opportunity to waste.
Hopefully next time I post, it'll be about a resurgent City.
