I had to give up because of arthritis. Hard getting on and off and Lena is quite a fizzy, but fun, ride and I don't trust my right knee any more.

I laughed  But I quite like Nicola Sturgeon although I don't agree with her, she's feisty and I think she thinks she is really doing her best for Scotland.

Hello Rosemummy, I wonder if the little one put his trousers on or went shopping without and got cold!

The sun went in, it got chilly, well it already was, only 2° this morning, so I still haven't gone outside.

Looks a lovely place to have breakfast. Don't suppose you pass through Dordogne on your way?

Sun was out, but clouds coming. Must get out rose pruning before it rains. Felicité et Perpetué is full of dead wood.

Pretty chicken, Philippa. All these lovely photos of pets and I don't have a dog any more  I have a semi-wild cat, a stray cat's daughter, but she is getting tamer. My main pet is my horse who was 18 on Monday, but she can't come indoors. Here's my girl.

Bother the photo won't post, just over 1 MB. I'll try another one, but it's less recent. That was just under 1MB. I thought this site took photos up to 2 MB.

Hello Lesley, didn't see you. I'm sorry bout your Dad. It's such a difficult time when parents become old and ill. Must be a big relief for your poor Mum to have you there.

Son rang, he may pop round later with the two littlies. Wife is working today but he has the day off. They have a Nanny but she doesn't do Wednesdays as it's often a day or half day off school in France and she has a little daughter.

Morning all. Sunshine, but it's starting to cloud over. I must prune Felicité et Perpetué and climbing Cecile Brunner. F & P is full of dead wood that you can't cut out in summer because of all the leaves, it's very vigorous. Prickly.

When I read Hosta's post I thought it could be kidney stones, then read that others thought so too. The intense pain is usually in the back or side going to the groin, but both my sons have had them even when they were quite young (congenital) and they complained of very severe abdominal pain which then went. If there is a small sharp stone it can hurt badly in the ureter and then be passed out so the pain goes. Just a thought, but it may be something completely different or just a gut spasm and nothing to worry about.

Daisy, this is a fun thread, the unpleasantness wasn't here, other threads, now been deleted by the editors. Also on some private messages - known as PMs.

Forkers is a nice thread too, but it's been going for much longer so people have sort of got to know each other. I'm sorry if you felt ignored, usually we try to welcome new people. When I joined the forum, years ago, I was made to feel welcome on the thread before the current Forkers one.
