Crikey! How do you find time to do gardening as well?! Do you do housework, cooking and washing?

Could you put strings across the ceiling and hang them on like washing on a line? That's what my mother did with Christmas cards.

Have planted up 12 of my large pots with spring bedding. Satisfying and not too arduous.


Already taking Glucosamine, Obelixx.

Joyce, OH won't be much good for planting bulbs, once he's knelt down he can't get up! I enjoy it though, planting anything is the best thing about gardening.

Weather forecast was sun so I put the washing out this morning. It is heavy fog!

X ray showed arthritis and a little bit of calcification but the X ray doc said he thought I also have chronic tendonitis. He said to go to my GP for treatment. My GP, last time, gave me Paracetamol and Ibuprofen and said I might need a cortisone injection. I had one of those some years ago after playing tennis and it was horrid. Not sure I'll bother.


Obelixx, won't Cinzano Bianco be too sweet too? Our local SM doesn't sell Dry Martini either. Maybe just dry white wine would do. I use it when I make velouté sauces, but they have cream in them too. Why is it that most of the delicious things are fattening and bad for you?! I rarely eat anything they make in Bake Off, yet I'm hardly slim!

Don't worry Daisy, needed a touch of humour!


Must go or I'll be late.
