Good morning all. Rain woke me up this morning.

Farrier has been, horsey filthy - rolled in the wet mud.

I saw your U tube, post, David, but I've already seen that clip before. Carol looked so shy then compared with now.

Going out to lunch with son and daughter and 3 small grandchildren.

KEF thanks for the advice about the pampas grass. Think mine is 19. So, as I feared, dangerous hard graft!

Going out for lunch tomorrow with daughter No 1 and son No 2 and families. Daughter is visiting son who lives near me.

Talking of hoovering, my lovely second OH hoovered the kitchen, bedroom and sitting room while I was out riding. I must wash the kitchen floor!

KEF, how did your OH remove the pampas grass? I have a huge one by the veggie garden, which is a mass of dead stuff in the middle with a ring of leaves around it. I've heard you can set fire to them!

Morning all. Cloudy, raining. Wonder if my dressage lesson will be cancelled? My horse was terrified of a cute red squirrel out riding yesterday!

I know Stacey.  I never pay until I am totally satisfied with the work.  


We had an extension built on our house in France some years ago and were not happy with some of it and they had overrun by 5 months because they kept not turning up, then they charged us more when we had a written contract with money and time limits. So, on advice from a notaire, we didn't pay the last bills. The builders took us to court. It took 8 years, French courts are incredibly slow. We won, but my first husband was no longer there then as he died from a heart attack.

Thank you, Panda. Better not take it to bed with me!

I'll second what clk has just said. That's what I was thinking when I read the question.

Please Panda.

 Sunny, 19° today, but they say it will be cool and wet next week. Had to water troughs and tubs.

Hope you are OK, Fidget, after falling backwards.

First day of spring!

Sorry about your Mum, KEF. Hope she's better soon. We'll think of you while you're not here and hope to hear from you soon.

Just watched Line of Duty, but missed the first two episodes so I never really understood it.
