Thanks for your reply. I did pre-soak mine, as instructed on the packet....think I'll wait til the weekend, if there's still no sign of life then I'll try to dig them out and chip them or sand them.
My sweet peas were sown 5 weeks ago and are showing no signs of life - they were in pots on the windowsill, inside zipped up freezer bags. Have moved them to the airing cupboard for more heat, but I'm wondering if they are just dud seeds. Hollyhock seeds have been sprouting within 3 days of sowing, ...
Yes, it's a dangerous time of year for putting weight on. Just back from hols and I do not dare weigh myself So far, I haven't struggled to get into any of the clothes I was wearing pre-holiday.....
Keep fingers crossed it was stress. Can you not get someone local to look after them in your own home. She seems to be back on top form, thankfully. Ironically, the place we took the hens to this time is very local - about 15 mins drive away - whereas previously, we've taken them to the place we bo...
Hi Kitla - no temperature (we had a good feel all over earlier) but, bizarrely, she seems to be completely back on form and has been for the last couple of hours. She's back to her normal self and has been stuffing her face with food and water - her crop is looking good, and we'll have a feel of tha...
We've collected our two hens this morning after a fortnight at a chicken holiday boarding place. One of them is definitely not herself - symptoms are:- Just standing in one place Slower reactions than usual and easier than normal to pick up (we normally have a devil of a job catching this one) Keeps...
Hopefully not considered 'off topic', because I did mention it a couple of weeks ago as part of my 'sorting my weight...' process........ Had my Colour Me Beautiful session yesterday. Had a lovely chat beforehand, explained that I'm (attempting to) change lifestyle, lose weight etc etc and that I'd ...
I remember once having an illness that meant that for a while I couldn't take coffee, red wine or chocolate. I thought life wasn't worth living Once I got used to feeling great, I didn't miss them as much as I'd expected. It was more the thought of them. I agree - I think it's the idea of things so...
I jumped onto the scales this evening to find that 3lb have gone! That's brilliant - well done!!! Funny how following a diet doesn't seem to work particularly well for mind or body, but just cutting back a bit, not being greedy etc can have much more positive mental and physical results. (Funny how...
Boosmummy, that's brilliant - well done!!
But I have to ask....mince pies?! (In October....not mince pies just for being mince pies!)
Cracking result - really chuffed for you
Well, I have learned a few things over the past week and a half. One is that I don't cope well with life's ups and downs....they take prominence over everything, which in turn leads to being disorganised...which includes being disorganised with food shopping/cooking/eating which then leads to eating...
