Just a quick hello from sunny Enniscrone and to tell you all a bit about myself.
At the moment I run the gardening side of our Local Mens Shed here in Enniscrone,we have two 20ftx10ft tunnels and are expecting a 30ftx14ft tunnel next week,so its all go at the moment and will be for the next few weeks.On top of that we have about three quarters of an acre of ground that we are SLOWLY turning into veggie beds.
So you all can see that my time is well taken care of,anyway I will be dropping in now and again and hope to take part in the forum a bit more as things settle down.

Welcome and good luck with the gardening. I think the whole Men's Sheds movement is brilliant and it seems to be growing throughout the country, so well done.

Welcome, Graham. Good to have you on the forum. I wish you well with the Men's' Sheds garden. A shed started up here in Letterkenny recently but I don't know if they are gardening.

Hi Graham and welcome along, I see another tunneller joined up this week too, from Wicklow if I remember rightly. Now don't take this the wrong way but one from Sligo is more than enough here, so if only we could figure out a way of offloading the resident old codger then you could take his place!

Hey Geranimojess, you were blogging away about your mens shed a while back and a sponsored weight loss, how did that all end up or did I miss the relative post?

Lost just under 4st...the "Men's Shed" now has it's own Premises and all hands are now busy Decorating it...I had to take a Sabbatical for a while for Family reasons but hope to return eventually...to many "Irons in the Fire" at the moment {other Interests} and had to prioritise them which meant the "Shed" fell down the ratings for a while...

Tact and Diplomacy is not exactly your strongest point...referring to Graham as an "Old Codger" is not a good way to add to your "Friends" Portfolio...

Ahhhh I'm sure enough that he can handle such rejection at this early stage. He's a big boy now.
Tact and diplomacy? I think you will find the exclamation mark gives it away as a tongue in cheek comment.
Well done on the 4 st. though.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.
Geraimojess,I bet the auctioneer was based just off the Main Street down the road to Carrhuhubuck,he,s well know for stretching the truth.
Again thanks all.

No actually...they were based in Ballina...I found the Girl was a bit to sweet and vague on one Question I put to her which set the Alarm Bells ringing...finding the Answer for myself I kinda' admonished her for telling Porkie' Pies...we often pass by that way and wonder "What if" and the plans we had for that House...

You put the words in my mouth.
I see you finally learned how to put up quotes properly. On top of putting up photos too, this is your technological breakthrough year.
