Happy New Six on Saturday

Happy New Six on Saturday to you all.  What is Six on Saturday you ask?  Can I believe my ears?  Where have you been for the last century, Mars?  I suggest you take your rocket ship over to Mr P’s planet, our commandant’s home, and it will all become clear.  Let us proceed. Earlier in theContinue reading “Happy New Six on Saturday”

Six on Saturday – Santa’s Selection

Welcome to my festive Six on Saturday, a meme nurtured by our own horticultural elf, Mr P. Actually, using the word “festive” is about as seasonal as this blog is going to get.  There will be no mistletoe or holly, carols or mince pies, in fact it is singularly unfestive.  Don’t get me wrong, I loveContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Santa’s Selection”

Six on Saturday – Letters

Here we are again, happy as can be, all good friends and jolly good company.  That’s right, it is Six on Saturday time again.  For anyone who has spent the last year lost in The Empty Quarter, or perhaps has been undertaking a silent vigil in a monastery somewhere deep in the Himalayas, and haveContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Letters”

Six on Saturday – Monochrome

This week I have, like many others it would seem, been undertaking a challenge.  My task has been to post a black and white photograph on Facebook, each day for seven days.  Usually I avoid these modern day chain letters, but on this occasion I thought it might be good fun.  There are a fewContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Monochrome”

Six on Saturday – Chocolates

Even though it was singularly uninviting, it being damp and windy and the weekend, I had to go out into the garden this morning.  Not just because of the pressing urgency of The Propagator‘s Six on Saturday, but because if I didn’t do certain jobs a visit from the local RSPCP officer was inevitable.  So IContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Chocolates”

Six on Saturday – If I must

I had decided that I wasn’t going to SoS this week.  Lots to do, miserable outside, lacking motivation, Madagascar 2 on the TV, crisps in the cupboard.  However, such is the hold that The Propagator has on me, I have relented.  I am hoping that eventually he will return the incriminating photos.  Until then, let’s go! MyContinue reading “Six on Saturday – If I must”

Six on Saturday – Static

It is not as if Storm Brian snuck up on us unannounced.  We have been warned of his imminent arrival for days.  In my heart I know I should have gone out in the garden yesterday to take my photos, when it was warm enough to dry the washing.  But I didn’t.  And today IContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Static”

Six on Saturday – Late on Parade

Sorry, I’m a little late on parade.  I would love to say I had a pressing engagement, possibly top secret, which prevented me posting yesterday.  The truth is, however, other mundane stuff got in the way and the day slipped by on a banana skin.  Still I am here now and The Propagator, who managesContinue reading “Six on Saturday – Late on Parade”

Six on Saturday – I’m Back

What do you mean you didn’t miss me?  I shall ignore you dissenters. For those of you who have been paying attention, I am back with my Six on Saturday.  After one whole weeks’ absence.  This meme is run by The Propagator, pop over to his site to check out his half dozen and other contributors. Continue reading “Six on Saturday – I’m Back”
