Hallo and happy xmas !

Post: # 181512Post fumanchu »

:santa: Hallo and can I join ? I'm up in the hills in Scotland, new to all this stuff but trying to do what I can gradually. Got a big garden and time to dig it now that we've given up work. Only problem is the short growing season this high up...but that's why I'm in here, to learn ways round problems eh ! :wave:

Hi there and welcome from just below the Border! :wave: :santa:
Let us be lovely
And let us be kind
Let us be silly and free
It won't make us famous
It won't make us rich
But damn it how happy we'll be!
