If we Brits are quiet on GoY this evening
it may well be that Woolworths and Asda etc have become rather busy. :-D
Dee, you are right, the 'end of summer' sales of gardening products has come early this year. Anything to do with the weather do you think ?

Thanks for telling us this Dee. I'm going into the nearby town tomorrow so I'll definately make a visit to Woolworth. I'm always glad to hear of someone having had a good bargain. Perhaps I'll find one tomorrow.

OMG an electric outdoor heater in this weather? Guess that would warm me up very quickly if I cant get sunburnt then how about 3rd degree burns instead ? Thanks for sharing YDD.

love it, Dee! had a good laugh with you here! But - I bet you could throw the most fab/ bargain Xmas Eve Garden Party (don't you just HATE a sunny Christmas Day, after a sh** summer?) - Unless you're south of the Equator?

Outdoor heaters??? A bit like the chestnut roasting drums in old London, where everyone used to stand around to warm themselves. I can still see that picture in front of me, looking like an antique postcard.

Hahaha David, Dont you know, Summer's on its way, Do you remember last year, October was Fab, I remember taking Photos, Bouncy castle in the garden, BBQ on the go,(mine cost more than £12 tho:))) I have the evidence, but knowing me probably the wrong date on the pics...
Ahhh memories Marguerite :) I bet you would love a week of rain just now...Love Dee..

October here is gr8, too, Dee. 3 of us in this household have our birthdays in that month - usually with garden parties. yes, we can't wait for "summer!" (but can't really complain about ours so far).

Oh dear, Rammy! reverse the seating/kitchen areas for Xmas, and you'll probably find that the party goes gr8 - and you'll be a happy host. Glad that you love the gazebo, though! Tree ferns? Hmm..still to make my mind up about those, however.

You still have Woolworth's?! When my family moved to Virginia in the 80s there were still a few Woolworth's left...but unfortunately they closed as the area began to gentrify and became the behemoth that is now Tyson's Corner...I miss Woolworth's!

Awww Raquel since i wrote this blog woolie's has closed down, went into liquidation, The final Sale was yesterday i think.. I will miss Woolworths too...

Woolies has gone! Some say it was a victim of the credit crunch, others that it was a victim of its own bad marketing! I, however, could always rely on this store for many things,(often gardening-related items), and will miss it greatly. It's the end of yet another era! We dared to walk in today, amid the crowds looking for massive bargains, but there were none to be had. It was so sad to see the row upon row of dismantled shelves, with nothing but "tat" left - at no great reduction, either! We'll miss it, hugely! just back in October, our kids spent all their birthday money and vouchers happily there! God Bless all the wonderful Woolworths staff! I especially remember a lady who lived in our street, who was a store manageress, and used her staff discount in 1967 to enable me to buy my first record player for my birthday - for just £3! (I still have it, and, unbelievably, would still work, if i still had records to play on it). I also remember going there to buy daffodill bulbs and a green plastic tub for a school project to grow bulbs in the cupboard under the kitchen sink.

Here and now, I feel sad, and would just like to say "God Bless" to all the FW Woolworth staff I have known and met over the decades, and for the part they have played in my gardening education.

Totally Agree David, ill miss wooloies spring/summer, ive had some great gardening stuff from them, even at full price they weren't expensive.. And of course the thousands of staff without jobs for 2009,...Freightening..
