How maddening, Joyce. I had that problem, but with deer, until OH fenced the main flower garden.

I have to admit to sorting through a cupboard full of old clothes and have thrown away 2 big bag fulls, all labelled size 10 to 12. I think I hoped I might wear them again one day. I am now size 16

Thought I would let the pet lovers here know that my beautiful Tigger died last week, 13yrs 9mths. He had cancer and bad arthritis so I asked the vet to come and assess him to see if the time had come, and it had. Photo is nearly 4 years ago, before he looked so old.

Just had a lovely time catching up here. We were away, then a tree fell on the phone line so I was without Internet or phone for the second half of September so I've let this thread slip and haven't posted any photos from September.

Michaelmas daisies are out, and dahlias. Here are some photos from the end of September, but the garden isn't very tidy, especially from the wind in the storm that blew the tree down. The lawns suffered a lot in the drought this summer.

Think I have a similar thing, ouch! Doc wants me to have it X-rayed. Raking and digging at daughter's didn't help.

The exchange rate has made a big difference to OH's English pension and to my smaller one, part of mine is French. OH is worried about future health care. In the next few years I need to downsize, an agent came round this morning, house prices in Dordogne have dropped a lot and far fewer English are buying here. Will probably take several years to sell, but then it often did before.  Most ex-pats I know think Brexit is a disaster. I've heard there may be far fewer flight to the UK and will be more expensive. I own a house in France and OH owns the cottage in England so it will be harder.

Morning all. Grey and drizzly.

Have fun in Bristol, Chicky. My OH went to Bristol Uni.

I hope there is some house left when you've finished, Clari!

Staying night at son's tonight to babysit 2 little grandsons.

Welcome back Topbird. I was without Internet too some of the time you were. Tree blew down on the line.

I hope the plumber's visit is a positive one, DD.

I've been to a gardening club meeting this evening, last one until spring.
