Improving, Fairy at least there is access and i've had to go shopping as some of the throwing out left me a little short in places.

I have got millions from people i've never heard of and lotterys I don't recall entering as for the extra inches i've had added to ... well no it's all bull. If anything seems too good to be true then it almost certainly is. These money scams all have something in common at some point you will be asked to pay a processing fee. Also beware of anyone wanting  to send more money than you want for something, even if the money appears to be in your account the actual processing takes longer and can be reversed.

Finally a plea

 I'm still not convinced

I really ought to make an effort to see some of the wild life that comes in here, had a nice owl fly over recently being tailed by a starling. There are foxes too that come in, as they take the time to relieve themselves on the grass. Not actally seen them yet but they do seem to come quite close to the cottage.

I've lightened the load a reasonable amount i think, t-shirts down to 13 lost the odd sweat shirt and now i need to buy more pants. There is space now to hold the clothes I have kept and I can get to my wardrobes and the laundry basket is empty for the first time in months, there wasn't anywhere to put my stuff after I washed it.

May seem odd but I think it comes down to composition. I was reading about the subject in relation to photography and somewhere I read that women are better at it than men. Its fairly natural for a man to live in a mess where as women have a better sense of organisation and  usually have a place for things. So I figured its time i did some sorting. It was some useful reading and surprised me with finding afterwards I could see the choices made in peoples photo's and even tv programs. Applying similar principles to my living area's seems to make things more pleasant. Thanks for the help 

 i'm slightly neglecting my garden at present but this is the view from my bedroom and most of what you see i have added this year. Apologies for the focus i'm still half asleep.

Here is something I need a bit of advice on I think I have way too many clothes. I just did an audit of what i seem to have weirdly some things seem to have gone missing. Ties especially can only find 2 for now.

but there are at least 82 socks, 22 pairs of pants 22 t-shirts 19+ trousers + jeans (mostly jeans) 7 jumpers 15 sweatshirts 11 shirts and 9 jackets. I figure Women  are better at clearing wardrobes than men. So any idea's what I should try to get them down to? If I wasn't living on my own here i think the cull would have come a long time ago.  I know totally not gardening related but I'm sure there are some very organised people on here.

 Here's  an actual baddy I think, a harlequin ladybird unfortunately an enemy to our native ladybirds (this one was spotted in Linconshire)

Thanks for all the advice, i'll suggest the ericacious liquid feed and high nitrogen feed and see if that perks it up.

in the last month it's been raining fairly regularly (not continually) but we did get into a drought the preceeding month which did dry out the soil in places. 

its called Taxus Baccata or common yew
