Tigger is ticking along, looking old and sort of scruffy, stiff in the back legs, doesn't always eat his brekkies, but he's still here, sometimes a bit incontinent.

More than a few weeds, KEF,  this wet spring just isn't helping.

Sorry RB, mine only go up to page 9.

Back from Saint George's day lunch. Managed to do publicity and give out flyers for Open Gardens. Good meal.

Tipping with rain so no hope of gardening, again. But did manage to do some planting of lettuces and cabbages in veggie garden this morning.

Morning all.
A big thank you DD, but I don't know how you will have time to weed my garden with all you have to do at your place. I'll be in touch.

Going to a St. George's Day lunch today. Good opportunity to publicise Open Gardens.

Natures anti inflammatory medicines

My mother's English chemist recommended tablets for her arthritis (years ago, she's no longer with us) which contained glucosamine and green lipped mussels. He never asked her if she was allergic to shellfish. She was allergic to mussels. She came to stay with me in France and she was quite unwell and had a rash. I took her to my French GP who said she had an allergy and asked to see her medicines.

Recently I asked my French pharmacist for something for arthritis and he recommended the same sort of thing. He didn't ask if I was allergic either (I'm not). Don't pharmacists have any training in doling out medicines?

Back from daughter's. I babysat on Thursday as daughter took her OH out to dinner for his birthday present at Gordon Ramsey's restaurant in Bordeaux.

Daughter lives 1h15 from me, it was 15° and dry, OH says it rained here and was 12°.

I am getting seriously panicked. At least DD has until June to sort her garden, I have until the 8th May and either it's raining or I'm doing something else. Only came back from England last week, tomorrow going to a Saint George's Day lunch, Sunday church followed by a lunch, Monday a workshop on bereavement that I was asked to take part in as I was bereaved (wishing I'd refused). Tuesday a friend is coming to help me weed and the forecast is rain.

Plumber came, 2 hours late, only to tell me he is coming back on Tuesday morning.

We've been to supermarket, raining so not a gardening day, but I met a friend in the SM who offered to come and help me weed on Tuesday afternoon.

So...............

Each to his/her own. Lyn, you are a very talented gardener and Steve was a teacher. Can't be good at everything. I like music but I can't sing or play anything. Thank goodness we all have different talents and personalities.

Hope you feel better Bushman.
