Did you buy yourself a pressie?
« on: December 24, 2020, 15:10 »
I did and a big one as well   :blush:

I treated myself to a plant theatre, which is a small set of metalwork shelves for outdoor use.  The first actors on set are some small pots of bulbs and I am planning to add little splashes of colour with other plants.  The whole lot will be framed by larger pots and put outside the back door where I can see them through the windows, even if it is too cold or wet to venture out.

It is going to be my consolation through the dreary months until spring is really here and I reckon after this year, I deserve it  :D

Sounds great we all like a bit of colour from the early bulbs etc. My naughty present was a heated jacket that will come in useful on the cold days up the allotment or at work. I'm ordering two new pollytunnels so I think that's me sorted. My wife's naughty present was a new TV so I get to watch stuff when the weather is awful  :lol:

Yes,  I bought some perfume, then remembered another one so ordered that as well.
I have always fancied to have a "Theatre".   Hope you all enjoy your pressies.   Mrs Bouquet

I treated myself (well the plot really  :mad:) to a bulk order of Marshalls Organic manure and 6 x 120lts of multipurpose compost while they were on offer a few weeks ago.
The other treat was a new shower, to be installed after the holidays, as my one's been running lukewarm for about a month. Long enough to confirm how much I prefer a shower to a bath  ::)

I got myself a hot composter, which will sit on the verandah - I'm not leaving anything that expensive on the allotment!  :wacko:

Speaking of heat though, where would you get a heated jacket?

For you or the composter?

OH bought himself one recently off EBay that he is pleased with.  I can ask him where he got it  :)

I set myself an indoor 'winter project' of partially replumbing my kitchen and bathroom, which still included sections of lead pipe.
Was going to re-use the sink and base unit, but the sink turned out to have rusted pinholes, and the base unit fell apart when I moved it!
Think I'll be buying myself several post-Christmas presents in the next week or so!  ::)

I you've got to buy them JayG, there are some pretty good bargains going on right now.  Probably, not what you wanted, but better now, than when you had put it all back together.   ::)  Mrs Bouquet

   We lost our 18yr old jack russell in the last few months and the house was too empty so i bought myself a gorgeous jack russellxshihtzu female. And we are besotted with her. Elsie boo is her name and I've never seen so many grown up men on their backs on the floor being silly. My grown up sons and my 68yr old hubby !!
