Sorry to hear you got bad news Matty2 please keep your chin up good luck for the future.
Matty- as Verd says - we're all friends here and ready to support you so don't hold back.
The kindness of strangers is something I've had a lot of in the last few years and it's been a huge help.
Dove - I can't quite hear you-what were you saying about Hostas?
Aaah...thought that was it....was hoping I'd misheard and it was 'cake'
Hi Matty, if you need to talk to someone there are plenty of people willing to listen but you might want to do so by PM rather than the open forum since anything written here will still be here in a years time if not longer and I know I wouldn't want that for myself. I'm open to listening too as well as many others. I hope one or two of us can help.
wishing you all the best
Afternoon all. Beautiful day albeit windy. Have been really busy digging, sieving and moving dirt. Am removing all the rubble from behind shed to flatten it, earth not shed. Rubble going into big bags which next door neighbour has just given to me. Didn't offer to help though, just talked about what he's going to with the 'tip' in his own garden. If he put as much effort into doing something rather than keep talking about it, it would get done in no time. Son thinks I'm mad and he's probably right. Hoping I will be able to stand up in a minute to do a bit more.
So sorry to hear you have had bad news Matty. If you do feel like sharing, you will find plenty of friends to do so with on here.
Dove, will you please stop shouting. You know how upset people get when you do that.
Back in your cage Brum- you know you'll only get over excited with these hostas....
Tina-know exactly what you mean. I had a neighbour like that too so have a good rant. I've just had 2 in the last week-utility co, barclaycard. Don't think the woman at first utility was very pleased when I said she can tell Head Office to look forward to the bill I'll be sending for wasting my time....Ranty pants, angry trousers and anything else I can think of wearing...
And as for that bleeping rain!!!!
Fairygirl, in the half hour I came in for a drink, the weather turned. Sun gone and started to rain. Temperature dropped. Was halfway through getting a load of breezeblock out too! Son said to leave it and he will do it. Hmm, heard that too often. Full of promises. Oh well, there's always tomorrow - hopefully.
This has got to do wonders for my weight.
OMG thunder and torrential rain. My poor magnolia tree will be spoilt.
Sorry Tina-I must have sent the bad weather down to you
It's ok Brum...I've calmed down! Don't think the man at Barclays was thrilled when I told them I was fed up of being lied to either...
I've put the cat among the pigeons now !
Thank you for your kindnesses. Can we leave it now please.
Sent it back again Fairygirl. Sorry. Sun's back, so off to carry on with my navvy job.
Is that 'Brise d'Anjou' Brum? I had it years ago and it was very pretty. Only had the white one since as I went off the pale colours (-sorry! ) Very useful plant though isn't it?
Good morning all Temp down to 6C last night - when I went outside this morning I discovered I'd left the little greenhouse open - (dratted phone calls) but I don't think anything will have come to any harm - it's full of trays of seeds waiting to germinate - might have slowed things down a little
Good to see BB back
