Linda, what a shock for you, but at least he's being cared for now and hopefully you can get a good night's sleep and he'll soon be on the mend.


So strange that Scotland has had such good weather and here in SW France it's been so cool and wet. Some parts of France have had bad flooding. I went for a wander round the garden this evening and so many roses are soggy and brown. The slugs and snails have had a wonderful time.

I'm back from the anniversary party. Lovely sunny day, high time we had one. Great food, all homemade, Champagne, elderflower for the drivers, lunch in the garden, about 30 of us, mostly people I know. I love get-togethers like that as distances in France are so big it's not always possible to see people you'd like to see.


Lovely paintings Pat, you are very talented.


I hope Mr KEF isn't feeling too bruised and battered.

Morning all.


We are going to an anniversary lunch party today.


I use a laptop and I don't care for the new site, but photos are the one thing I find better, the downloading of. But I wish you could enlarge them like before.

What is your weather like?

At last, 2 days without rain. I hung up the washing today, but it's still damp as the air is so humid. Left it on the line.

ANYBODY WANT TO KNOW ABOUT BONE MARROW CANCER?

THANK YOU PANSYFACE. DOES THAT MEAN YOU AREN'T TAKING ANY TREATMENT? I THINK I WOULD ACCEPT IT. ANYTHING TO KEEP YOU GOING. NEW DRUGS FOR CANCER ARE BEING FOUND ALL THE TIME SO I WOULD WANT TO KEEP GOING AS LONG AS POSSIBLE IN CASE THEY FIND A CURE. CHEMO ISN'T ALL THE TIME, YOU TAKE IT IN COURSES. HOPE I'M NOT BEING TOO NOSEY, I WAS A NURSE, BUT I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT BONE MARROW CANCER. HAVE NOW LOOKED AT THE NHS SITE.

SOUNDS AS THOUGH YOU HAVE A FIGHTING SPIRIT PANSYFACE.


YOU ASK IF ANYONE WANTS TO KNOW MORE? DO YOU MIND IF I ASK - DOES IT MAKE YOU FEEL ILL AND DOES IT HURT? DO THE CHEMO TABLETS UPSET YOU? DON'T ANSWER IF YOU DON'T WANT TO.


WE ARE ALL BEHIND YOU HERE.

WELCOME BACK PANSYFACE  XX 


Obelixx, we haven't had floods here, they are further north, but there has been a heck of a lot of rain and the rivers are muddy and swollen. My roses are very battered, OH has been dead heading this morning. One good thing, I've hardly watered this year! But I haven't worn a summer dress yet either.


Puncdoc, I found your post very moving. I wish I'd joined a forum all those years after 1st OH died when I was on my own in an isolated house, but Internet had hardly started and I was computer illiterate anyway. 2nd OH has taught me a lot about computers. I like having forum gardening friends who speak my language when I live abroad. But now, recently, a new gardening club has started and there is the new Open Gardens scheme, mostly English.

Morning all.


Been to stay with daughter to help clean her new house before they move in today. Haven't been here as her Internet was down. Then yesterday I was out all day with the Gardening Club visiting gardens in the Charente.


Come back to find poor pansyface has been banned. What on earth for? She wasn't a troublemaker, she had problems with her eyesight and didn't like the new forum site. I don't like it either and I don't even have eyesight problems. What are the GW team thinking of?


And, to cap it all, she has now found out she has cancer. If she or her OH sees this I would like to say I'm so sorry about it all and I hope the docs can do something and the GW team come to their senses. She could do with support at a time like this and we are all her friends.


Clari, Verdun said he was taking a break.


I hope Dove is enjoying her holiday.
