Is this some newfangled technology i've not been made aware off? Looks like
a hand towel dispencer to me...
Eighth Brookmyre. Huzzaz for more Parlabane! I knew i'd been reading too much Brookmyre when often through this book i thought "It'd be fucking awesome/gross/typical Brookmyre if..." only for my 'if' to happen not long later. Though saying that i also had my 'typical Brookmyre' expectations challenged a couple of times.
Be My Enemy = ((Motivational weekend + bampot politics) ^ chaos) x (Parlabane x Vale)
1) Planting out seedlings left me with a singularly very muddy finger.
4) This bed is now full!

I read and enjoyed Day of the Triffids years ago, and when i found out The Midwich Cuckoos was the book the Village of the Damned films were based on, i had to read it. Ace book, even though i knew what was coming. The Children were definitely eerier in the book than the films. I foresee more Wyndham in my future.
I may have inadvertently set myself a challenge of some kind.
I was just baffled and amused.
Emily and Lily are still growing. When will that stop? They need to stay this cute forever.
These were taken a couple of weekends ago, while they were climbing all over me.
Some of the seeds we plated in the raised bed have started to grow! YAY!
The top photo is mizuna and the second is spinach. There is also a few smallsmall rocket plants sprouting.
We also planted our first early potatoes in the other raised bed, and added frost/cat protection.
