When I saw Charlie on the branch, then under the branch for a moment I thought he'd fallen in!

I really like fruit cake as well as carrot cake

Watched too much TV today, finishing with Mr. Selfridge, but I did do ironing while I watched, including two big duvet covers.

Liri, I don't think clematis is the best for north east and acid soil. But I expect someone will advise you, I have alkali soil.

Thats the trouble with having pets, they dont live for very long and then we are heartbroken when they go. So sorry Lizzie for your loss, he had a lovely life with you.


Lyn, Tigger hasn't died yet, he has liver cancer.

Hugs RB. Lovely goose and dog. But that is the trouble with animals, they don't really live that long compared with us. But it's worth it. I've had 6 Border Collies over the last 37 years.


Seed Sowing Time Yet?

He still won't touch dogfood, but ate fish and rice for breakfast. Has now had his cortisone tablets. Short walk because of the icy wind, his tummy was shaved for the ultrasound scan.

Cheap greenhouse - advice please!

It's hard to tell, but it looks very tiny, once you are in it. I wonder how much room there is. I've seen this one on Amazon , but it's £215. It has good reviews and is 2 foot longer, looks more like a real greenhouse.

Afternoon all.

Icy wind here. Tigger ate his breakfast this morning of rice and fish, still won't eat dogfood. Took his cortisone tablets. Walk was short because of the cold, he has a shaven tummy because of his ultrasound scan.

Feels like the sort of day to sit in front of the woodburner and watch TV. Don't do that very often in the day time, apart from Escape to the Country. I like that because of the scenes of beautiful English countryside and as I'm nosy I like looking in people's houses.

Been to the vet hospital. Bad news about Tigger (my lovely 12 year old Border Collie). He has liver cancer. He's had blood tests and an echography. Starting cortisone tomorrow and if he seems to be in pain then it's euthanasia. Vet said heart isn't too good either. He can't give exact prognosis, if Tigger eats and drinks then could be 2 - 3 months, if can't eat could be as little as a week. But he has eaten today. Have another appointment on Tuesday. It all seems to have happened so quickly. In 10 days he's gone so downhill and lost a lot of weight. Fur looks awful.
