Thinking of you Sunny. I hope your cute kittens are helping. Maybe your Paul has met my Paul, who knows what happens next. My Paul left this world in 1998 aged 53. After the misery things do pick up, life carries on. But the memories are still there.

Well hello again

Get well soon Mike. I agree with Fidget about the painkillers.

Do you know what this houseplant is, please?

A friend has sent me this photo of a houseplant that she was given in a plant swap, but she doesn't know what it is. Are any of you able to identify it, please?

Stop contemplating mortality, punkdoc. Take advantage of having a good rest. Make sure you rest, that doesn't mean gardening. At least winter is coming on so do garden planning instead while you are resting. You can get over this.

Going to supermarket, veg has run out and getting fed up with courgettes from the garden. There are a few runner beans though. Need fruit too, none from the garden as the May frost did for the blossom.

Kitty said "Strap-on lawn aerator sandals .  Managed about three steps before getting stuck fast." Same here, also went in the bin.
I bought one of these, a manual garden tiller. Couldn't turn it in my clay with limestone lumps and it did such a small bit at a time. Gave it to a friend. She liked it, but she had light soil.

Punkdoc, a get well soon from me too.

Good luck for the storm everyone

I hope the storm is passing and no one here has had any more damage. I have friends in County Sligo, I hope their house is OK, they are here in Dordogne on holiday at the moment.

Morning all.

I hope no one here has suffered from the storms. We had one here in December 1999, really scary, oak tree fell on the spare bedroom roof, without water and electricity for about 10 days, no phone either for a bit.

Oil man didn't listen to my instructions about finding the house. I told him the Sat Nav is wrong but he followed it anyway and went down a country lane that is closed for re-surfacing. I went out to look for him and the road workmen aren't pleased - oil lorry has left huge tyre marks in their new tarmac. They've locked him in a bridleway with a lorry in front of him until they've finished. I clearly told him on the phone not to take that road and there is a big sign saying road closed.

Oh dear, Joyce, I hope there isn't too much damage.

We have friends who live on the West coast of Ireland, they are visiting Dordogne at the moment. I hope their house is safe.
