  1. Gardening

  2. Gardening

    Compost bin at the back, water butt at the front. Both overly large for my needs. I want to start some cauliflower seedlings indoors, and haven't done anything like that yet. Any general advice? Can they be kept in a fairly cold room? Thanks for your kind words. Sadly we just rent the house, so I can't make any massive changes to the garden. I'd love a more formal lawn, so I can mow stripes into it.

    Use this thread to discuss anything you're growing… whether that is a houseplant, cress for your sandwiches, a garden, or substances of variable licitness depending on your jurisdiction. --------------------------- We moved into a house with a garden a year ago. The first garden I have to look after. I spent last year managing to keep on top of the weeds and mowing the lawn, but this year I want to make it look good. I'm going to try to commit an afternoon a week to this, though that sounds like a vain hope. Here is my garden in October. Would love to get that lawn a more vibrant colour, but the apple tree overshadows it. Would like to discuss gardening with someone who knows what they're talking about. I figured a Guns N' Roses forum would be the best place on the internet to find that person.
  4. I'm under the impression that's what Bad Company actually did once.
  5. The MyGNR Book Club

    The whole having a baby thing was a guise. I just got tired of being relied upon as a moral compass for Anything Goes. Y'see, now I'm gone, there's threads dedicated to sex robots, blacklisted politics and religion. It's completely feral! Btw, I do think the Book Club is a great idea, and would join, but I'm mostly into non-fiction. I'll enjoy reading the thread though.
  6. How did you come up with your forum name

    I spent ages trying to sign up to this board. I got to annoyed that all the other names I tried were taken, so I was like F it, Minnie Mouse. And while I didn't like it, it was accepted. I think I spent a year or so with that name. I then changed it to what it is today because of some bloke called Tracii.

    That's pretty bad… you must have been worried throughout the festive season. Perhaps he regrets sending the letter, or realised that he's not followed company protocol? Are you still a postal worker, hence the early time, or is he just being obnoxiously early?
  8. Is 2018 going to be a repeat of 2008s era of getting together? Come on all you other mygnr lovers… 'fess up now!

    Nah, I'll just get trigger happy with the report button instead! I probably did come down a bit heavy once or twice, but then I also got way more aggro in PMs than I deserved too. Circle of life.
  10. Happy New Year!! 2018!!!

    Happy new year!

    Thank you- and great to see you around SS!
  12. I'm with you on this. Life is magical again. I think the things that change are the things you have to sacrifice. Everyone has different commitments, and I imagine that the sacrifices are bigger for those people who do yoga on Mondays, kickboxing on Tuesdays etc. But the husband and I are homebirds anyway so a new addition to our house is just brilliant.
  13. In general terms, life is much better for me now than it was a year ago. At the end of 2016, publishing was really becoming a dying industry, and all the start-up magazines I had worked with ran out of money. I ended the year with one regular client, which wasn't enough to pay the bills. I ended 2017 with many clients, including some really high-profile ones, being shortlisted for a business award and a baby. The only really bad thing that happened was losing my much-loved Grandma in November.

    Thanks Soulie, baby is fine, I'm getting by… read below for more details! Thank you Jan! She was 8lb 2oz., though I think she looks a bit smaller. My labour was a total of 51 hours from initial contractions to delivery. Everything that could go wrong did… it's a story so long it could warrant an audiobook! Anyway, she ended up being delivered by forceps in theatre (with me prepped for a C-Section under general anaesthetic). So much for wanting a simple home birth! Daddy has been a complete superstar throughout the entire pregnancy and parenthood. He takes being a dad very seriously, and it's brought out a proactive side of him which I haven't really experienced before! I'm healing, though I am on an array of tablets and contraptions for the various medical conditions I've acquired. We've had my family and hubby's family visit so far. It's my grandparents next. But I'm trying to put them off, as I'm still feeling vulnerable. The absolute best thing about having this baby is the change she's making on my dad. He's had a pretty rough time. But he visited and has fallen in love with her! Not seen him so happy in 15 years. They say that children are a gift, and I never really worked out how until that happened.
