What has happened???

Sam - sorry to hear about your ME.  You sound a very positive person and I'm sure that will help you get through it and your garden shows you're doing well.

I don't keep a diary as such but am quite organised with my garden photos on the computer and like to see how things are different from 12 months ago.  The plants generally seem a few weeks behind but why are the brambles doing so well?

Sorry to hear about the sciatica and hand/arm Jo and don't feel bad about taking painkillers when you need them! 

I think I can join in with the last few posts in saying that OH definitely needs direction when willing to do gardening jobs

Good luck with the cakes BJay

That's good news Joel.  You can ask for a copy of the results and if you decide to go to a chiropractor, physiotherapist, etc. you can take it with you for them to see exactly where the problem is.  This is what I did and it saved a lot of descriptions and explanations!  Good Luck

Really enjoyed Beechgrove - and must agree with the girls about Chris B   Sunday morning TV has never been better!

I used the paviors from Wickes to edge a small flower bed last year and they seem much stronger than bricks and less likely to suffer frost damage (that's what happened with the old  bricks that were already there).  Think they were about 38p each.

Ha Becks - I was just wondering how much the topsoil was!

Hi Joel.  I had the same problem a few years ago and it did take a while for the pain to go.  I had physio which helped a little and later acupuncture which helped a lot (I know it doesn't work for everyone but when you're in pain you'll try anything).  I also bought a TENS machine from the chemist, after checking with my doctor is was OK, and that provided relief too.  Keep warm and don't sit still for too long.  I also found a hot water bottle on my back for no more than 20 mins at a time eased the pain too.  Now I can garden but know my limits and don't try to keep going once my back starts twinging.  It can take a while but be patient and as Dove says try and do some gardening jobs that don't need lifting or bending.

Good luck with the blog Ryan. I'm sure you'll have plenty to write about and hope to see some photos of your plants.
