🎶 It’s a miracle, it’s a miracle...🎵 yes George, it is!! 🙌🏼 Look Jacq! Just came up in my photo memories that you, Sam and I were in Cambridge a year ago today!! So that means it’s Jacques first birthday and I have had a houseplant for a whole year!! I am officially an expert 🤓😉 (we’ll ignore the Poinsettia currently flinging it’s leaves on the floor on the other side of the room! 🙈🤣) aww...don’t they grow up so quick?! 😉 @awomanonabike @icedance #houseplant #itsamiracle #ihaventkilledi

Indeed 🙈 that would be fantastic maybe combine it with me giving you a tour of my work place ? Once its a bit warmer 🌞 that's something to celebrate 1 month is impressive for sure 😘 have to say I've always felt sorry for Poinsettia they really don't like this country ! X

Ooh yes! I’d love that! 👍🏼😘 well I refused to buy one and then someone bought it for me, so at least I had the grace not to kill it immediately this time! 🙄🙈🤣 @icedance

Well I never...I have actually managed to keep a houseplant alive!! 😯 Not only is little Jacques still alive (8 months and counting!) he’s actually grown and I’ve had to re-pot him! Wonders will never cease! Have a great evening flowers 🌸 I’m cracking open a 🍾 to celebrate! 😉 #indoorplants #itsamiracle

If you manage to kill this Rachel then you should give up 😂 they are so tough even my daughter has managed to keep one alive. Mine get a regular trim from Prudy and still looks great 😊

Oops Carol! 🙈 I have been quite frugal with the watering so far 😬 @carolgs I think that’s normally my downfall 🤷🏻‍♀️
