Mrs H3.  I don't know what you are embarrassed about but it can't be that bad can it ? It's a gardening site   At the bottom of this message scroll up and you will see REPORT TO MODERATORS.  Tell them your problem and they will remove it. I've done it myself about one of my posts.

To everyone on here who is worrying, stressing, trying to sort out difficult situations about loved ones, I wish you all hugs and good luck with everything. 

Some people just seem to sail through life with no particular problems with illness or family worries, but that's just life. 

Those of us who don't just have to get on with it , and on here we are lucky to have a place to 'talk' with people who don't judge and will give support in whatever way they can. 

To those of us who are carers in whatever fashion ,

you still have to live , because you don't know for how long you will be in the  position of being a carer or in the position of sorting others  lives out.  You have to make the best decisions at the time for that person. You can do no more. You will do your very best. You can do no more. So, if you feel you need a holiday, and it's possible ,take one. If you want to do anything at all and it's possible, do try and do it, because as I said you have to 'live' otherwise you will not be fit mentally or physically to carry on.  I hope I am not speaking out of term but I am speaking from experience. 

Best of luck to everyone. x

Afternoon all.  Hope you are all well my GW friends.  

Havent been on here for a few days due to personal circumstances but have been having a 'peep' now and then.  


Glorious weather here again. Bit humid, but not complaining. Had a good tidy up in my little sanctuary. Cleared raised bed, manured and covered in black fleece for winter. Tomorrow plan to clear Runner Beans. Have one more pick I think. They have been fantastic this year haven't they.......

i thought I might post a few pictures, one of which is amother bargain from GC but since I have updated my iPad settings it will not post pics. It is saying '503 not available' . Does anyone know anything about this or how to get around it please.

Whichever way it goes there is going to be a massive amount of people who will be disappointed. 

We want Scotland to stay part of the UK.

VERDUN.  Get stuck in there.  Without banging on about it, but my husband nearly died last year and most of his troubles were caused through dehydration.  The nursing staff used to say "yes he's drinking plenty" but I knew he wasnt when I wasn't there. He was incapable . Yes he had water put in front of him, usually out of reach , but he doidnt know he had to drink it. He did go into delirium and that's when all the bells and alarms went off and I finally got something done.  Dehydration is a really serious matter, especially in the elderly and frail. Good luck tomorrow Verdun. 

Best Wishes to everyone who is suffering or struggling with a loved ones problems.
