  1. It sounds as if you eat some nice meals (and varied ones too), but I'd like to see a few photos! When I am deciding what to cook, I start with the visual aspects first.

    1. Your right mark I really want to start adding some photos. Just getting the camera sorted out at the moment. I need to try and make them look nicer than the photos seem to come out :0)

  2. What a great plan for the week. How's it gone? I think, like Mark, I want some pictures ;-) always enjoy a mouthwatering pic. Might be worth starting to save up a database of your favourites :-)

  3. Went really well, esp the cauliflower bake which I have some photos of. But one to make with no children around I have four pans going at one time.

Feeding a Bee with sugar water

Have you ever been in the garden and seen a sad looking bee on the ground not really moving? You watch it for a while realising the poor little chap is really struggling. I have found several bees like this and tried to feed them sugar water. But my attempts to rescue them mainly ended with me trying to drown them, I was really not aiding them during their time of need. But I have finally developed a method that works so I thought I would share.

Mix together white sugar with a little water so that it completely dissolves, RSPB suggests 2 tablespoons of sugar with one tablespoon of water. I used desert spoons but the same ratio. The advice is never to use honey or brown sugar.

The bee will start to drink the sugar water and you will see it begin to get stronger. It is truly …

Planting LolliPop Trees Elaeagnus ebbingei

I can not believe the day had finally arrived, the trees we had put so much thought into were going to be planted.

We had the conifer and last shrubs removed and the whole area dug over and ready for the arrival of the LolliPop Trees Elaeagnus ebbingei.

Finding Elaeagnus Ebbingei

I was on the school run when they arrived. I walked round into the back garden to see five of the most beautiful trees in huge pots ready to be planted.

Mr MC&W had chatted to the team that the trees need to be the same height despite there being a slight slope.

It was great to see the tape measure out checking the spacing between each one, as this was such a crucial part of the design.

I can not believe how fast they got the first tree in and how polite they were when we suddenly realised it was overhanging the neighbours' boundary. They brought it forward no questions.

All five went in under 4 hours, I honestly do not think we would have one hole dug in that time.
Then they were planted and we could…
