Remember from my last Blog about Decisions? Decisions? Decisions?
(If you can't remember, have a look now and then read on......)
(If you can remember, read the jokes below until everyone else has caught up!!!)
An American fighter plane was flying over Afghanistan when he noticed a flying carpet on each side of his plane, both with a machine gunner on board. Sensing danger he made a decision to shoot them down. Back at base he got a right telling off – apparently they were Allied Carpets
I was driving to work this morning when I saw an RAC van parked up. Curious, I made the decision to go over to the van and saw that the driver was sobbing uncontrollably and looked very miserable. I thought to myself ‘that guy’s heading for a breakdown’.
The government has made a decision and have announced that for the new school curriculum, boys are going to study the workings of the female mind. The lessons, however, will be changed on an hourly basis!
Back to my Blog:
I needed to make a decision about adding to my Family Tree, information regarding my great great grandfathers possible parents, brothers and sisters. This was because I could only presume that the information was correct and not fully prove it.
I also needed to make a decision about planting out the seedlings from the greenhouse to the outside areas of the allotment, due to the very cold weather we were having at that time.
Well the decisions were made for me as life was turned on edge when we were informed (after 5 years of applying) that we had been approved for emigration to Australia.
- I need to start the process of adding the new members of my family to the Family Tree as it would be easier, and cheaper, to purchase documents etc. whilst in England.

We still have Runner Beans, Brussels Sprouts, Beetroot, Carrots, Leeks, Broccoli, Sweetcorn, Broad Beans & Courgettes to pick when they are ready.
We have also had plenty of Strawberries to pick.
In the greenhouse we have,
