Pyrex

When did ebay become so damned complicated?  really struggling with it at the moment not running the shop just using it to sell a few bits and bobs that we dont need , it just seems to be designed to run on a smart phone . Something i dont have and try to avoid at all costs , in fact mobile phones are the one aspect of modern life i detest , I could live without one if it wasnt for work .  Then my wretched phone decided to ring 999 under its own steam this morning 3 times in a row .Why just Why!!!
Got a long lecture about wasting their  time , i heard it talking to itself or i would never have known , apparently EE are experiencing network problems . So ive turned it off and chucked it into a drawer till i need it .
The only pleasure is veg gardening down in the windswept wilderness , bleedin mice have nobbled my sweetcorn it had nicely got shooting up , the potatoes are just up , lots of orkney blue again this year, its a short season potato so the cabbages will go in straight after theyre done , couldnt find my favourite pink fir apples this year , unless i ordered them which i couldnt afford . Theyre may be a few strays pop up, im hoping . Somewhat surprisingly im getting a bit of help from my son , im not complaining , digging reduces me to agony .
The greenhouse is likely never to get finished , mainly because Mr BH is an annoying perfectionist , if hed just vanish for a couple of days it would be up and working , I dont need perfect i just want it up .
Must get round to sorting the strawberry netting , the thrush will be so frustrated but i want to leave them to polinate for a couple of weeks first , then theres the cabbage nets to sort out , the joys of living in the countryside , the wildlife wants to share all your food !!
Mr Bah Humbug went to see some kittens yesterday they will be ready in a couple of weeks, I knew he would give in eventually,  a small furbaby would cheer everyone up , he wants two but we can barely afford one , we arent on Income Support so dont qualify for help with the cost of neutering .
On the Thrift side I managed to get to a Car Boot at New York on Sunday , no its not a large place its a crossroads with a barren windy field with added bucket bog , tons of stalls lots of great stuff and i bought a tray of cauliflowers and calabrese,  they are much further on than mine so it gives the crops a head start a whole £2.00 spent .
I'm going to try and flog these JAJ pyrex lovelies on facebook , my favourite pattern but they would be just stuffed in a cupboard unused so they need to go . If they dont sell I will hide them somewhere ..lol  you can have to many mixing bowls !!

  1. Ebay can be a right pain I know. Love the dishes I have seen lots at the car boot lately, I think I am going to get some myself.

  2. I have given up a lot of on line stuff because of the same reasons!

  4. Hooray for cats! Two would be good but I understand the financial implications.
    Alys Fowler (I found one of her gardening books in a chazza) says that a plastic toy snake placed near your crop will keep the mice away. Worth rummaging in the toy box at the next car boot/jumbo/ chazza? xxx

  5. Your hubby sounds a bit like mine. Ijust want the darn job finished.... I am still waiting for the coping stones to go on top of the wall he started last month. I offered to do them at the time but was told in no uncertain terms that he would do them tomorrow. He just forgot to say which tomorrow

  6. I tried ebay before we moved with little success and a lot of messing about. Good luck with the garden.

  7. I love the pyrex - I have a couple of rectangle dishes with this design - have you listed them yet? Wondering how much the postage would be as they are quite bulky? x
