At last - no more Billy-no-mates!

55 comments


I was so excited to see that people had seen my blog and actually commented on it. I know this is what is supposed to happen but I am very new to all this so I am easily pleased.
It is like your first day starting school – will the other kids be nice, will they like me? I feel I know you already
I am not sure I am going to get out there today – it is cold and damp; not actually raining yet but definitely needs courage to go out. I must start my list of gardening resolutions soon or the year will be over before I have even admitted that there are issues.
Watch this space!

Hello Gardenmad, you'll soon have so many mates you won't be able to keep up with everything!

29 Jan, 2009

 

You will love it I'm sure. True about being addictive though, I used to watch much more television than I do now, read the papers, clean (not that often), but I with GoY I don't have the time. Welcome from me too.

Hello GM. I'm glad you have joined us here in the mad mad mad mad world of GoY. You will find that a good percentage of us on here are quite mad !! And not just about gardening. And those of us who are not mad, are definitely slightly cracked.
You will probably find GoY highly addictive so be prepared to spend many hours posting photos, writing blogs, asking and answering questions, reading other peoples comments, blogs and questions, cruising through the photographs etc etc etc.
Enjoy!!

Welcome Gardenmad, look forward to hearing all about your adventures.

2 Feb, 2009

 

Thanks to you all. I feel really welcome on this site. It is a brilliant sunny day here after yesterdays snow - bet we have more snow in our garden than any others around though as my son made snowmen last night that are so big they will last till June!
It is very cold today though so I think I will just wrap up warm and start spreading some more compost.

Hello Gardenmad.

I am one of the newest, if not the newest member of GOY and have found everyone really friendly, as I expect you will too. Take some time to enjoy the blogs, questions and answers and photographs that your new found friends have posted. They are really good and I have already spent many hours looking through them and have already learned quite a bit. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Alan.

Janey, Gilli, Amy, Gillian, Bonkers - I speak from experience ;-) And how did I become 'Syd'?

Hello Alan :-)

3 Feb, 2009

 

Sarah?...are you Syd now...this is so confusing?
Ummm...hello Alan...hello GM1....I'm gonna go read your profile....nice to meet you... ~Cat

3 Feb, 2009

 

Hello......earth to Catfinch.....Sarah has always been Sid but now she is Syd.........Syd aka Sid aka Sarah....I think it must be a type of mutation Sid (Syd).....LOL

3 Feb, 2009

 

I know Gilli*...I am* on earth..by the way..............sometimes.....and I know Sid/Sarah has always been Sid/Sarah....now you have confused me even more...muttation?...no that was mutation...must be...oh my..what will happen to you?...why you could become???.....oh no!!!....GYllY...mighty close to GOY....what is happening here?!!!!...oh dear..where did I put my keys..going to need my 4X4 for for this one ..it's gonna get deep......

3 Feb, 2009

Oh dear I'm mutating......into what? Are I's all going to become Y's in this brave new world? Why does Catfynch need her 4X4 Gylly?

4 Feb, 2009

 

LOL - am I Sprytzhenri now?? I can't be - my fingers had trouble typing it!

Poor gardenmad - she now KNOWS that we are all crazy!

4 Feb, 2009

 

Sorry SID..but according to Donnah I am now Mr Bonkerstone lol...the mind boggles !!!

4 Feb, 2009

 

No, you would be SprytzhenrY...LOL.....
Catfynch is obviously having a brain fade.....
Syd...I'm not sure why Catfynch needs her 4X4....maybe she is going to drive to Wales to see Gardenyngfryend....All these "y's" make everything look Welsh !!!

4 Feb, 2009

 

Mr. Bonkerstone??? Perhaps you have mutated into a rock BB.

4 Feb, 2009

 

I have to say I am a little confused - I assumed it was a lost language or some long running joke. I'm a bit tired today - will catch up tomorrow.

4 Feb, 2009

 

Oh Gilli..perhaps I will just retire as a statue in Grenvilles stumpery ! Wouldnt he just love that ! lol

4 Feb, 2009

 

Oh no BB...that would be far to dangerous for Cyril....he would have to travel there with your camera everyday place it in your little stone hands and help you take shots of him....perhaps a mistake was made and you are not becoming a stone...oh dear.... the goy group? what is happening? Y's everywhere and now Bonkerstone? Darn...4x4...seems to be stuck here...no..no..thats it...was in 2 wheel...ok....ok..will be fine....jeesh...that was close...

4 Feb, 2009

 

Well Gardenmad when you read this in the morning you ll probably think you were better off as Billy no mates !

With mates like us who needs friends ! Lol Sounds like you were driving whilst typing Cj ? You take care now - dont quite know how we got here - doesnt take much for us to take a detour does it ?

4 Feb, 2009

 

Well ya see BB..it all started when you said.."LOL...Syd"

we've been off the road ever since....Y's, detours, stones...quite a mess here....mutations...me driving to Wales...good thing I have my 4x4...yu think it'll float ..tires are a big but not sure they would float my truck...and if you try to get on the tail gate....being stone and all...well..BB...we're sunk....

4 Feb, 2009

 

No no no Cj....it wasn't BB that started the Syd thing....it was Amy....scroll back up and you will see.....

BB I think you would look quite nice in Grenville's stumpery. They could adorn you with fairy lights and hang a bird feeder off your ear.

GardenMad.....don't try to make sense of it all....just jump in anywhere. :o)

4 Feb, 2009

 

Gilli..you always want fairy lights..you wanted them in GF's Welsh Cedar tree picture too...fairy lights, fairy lights, fairy lights.....and more firery...fairy lights...Amy ...BB...Amy...BB....oh my....whose to blame...Goys gone mad ...and we will be losssssstttttt!...rum-rum-rum-rum......spltttptppptptptptptttt...stuck again...

4 Feb, 2009

 

For goodness sake Cj, take that thing out of 2 wheel drive or you'll never get wherever it is you are going. BTW....I PM'd you.

4 Feb, 2009

 

Here I am stuck in this mess and you are out there PM'n me??????oh 4x4..means four wheels...k...oh yeah ..much better....

Goodness....what did I start....? Did Catfynch get whereever it was she was going? Did she get back from whereever it was she was going? Is Bonkerstone reduced to being a stone statue in Grenville's stumpery, wrapped in fairy lights and with a bird feeder hanging off his ear? Did Catfynch ever read her PM from Gylly? Did anyone ever work out who called me Syd first? Will Gardenmad ever work out what on earth all this is about? My head hurts..........

9 Feb, 2009

 

oh Sid...think we all scared her off Bless...lol

9 Feb, 2009

 

We...might be crazy...but we're a harmless lot...just out of work gardeners....sad, wimpering, frozen toed, bunch....

9 Feb, 2009

 

Bonkersbon I feel your pain! I garden whenever I get a minute (actually a sunny hour today) and all sorts of things go through my mind till I'm sure I am quite mad. On sunday I was out until there was so much snow on me I was blending in with the scenery. It seems the most frequent thread recently is singing hymns - does anyone else do this - I am not a religious zealot or anything; perhaps it is because my dad was always quoting that poem that end with you are nearer to God in a garden than anywhere else on earth. If there is a deathly silence now I will know I've been written off??

10 Feb, 2009

 

I sum times Hum 2 myself while gardening Gardenmad :) i am thinking of buying a small radio 2 have in Greenhouse as i do enjoy music like yourself :) I do have a MP3 but i like 2 be able 2 hear other stuff 2 :)

10 Feb, 2009

 

Hi Gardenmad, I was wondering if you were o.k. Glad you have turned up again. I don't sing out loud, but tunes go round in my head. There are some wonderful hymn tunes, the devil doesn't have all the best music.

10 Feb, 2009

 

Humming, singing, dancing in the garden. I would expect nothing less from this crowd!
Did Catfinch ever make it to Wales?
How is Bonkersbon adjusting to life in the Stumpery?
Will more mutations occur amongst the GOY clan?
Tune in tomorrow to find out!
: )

10 Feb, 2009

 

I went in the greenhouse for the first time today - it is really dirty but the smell and the warmth just hit me (the sun was out) and reminded me how much I love being in there when the weather is cold outside. I have no heating on at the moment and the overnight temp is probably sub zero tonight but it does remind you that summer is a coming!!
