Hostafan; did you know you can buy a speaker inside a pillow? As a chronic pain sufferer (who regularly used to spend far too many nights wide awake letting my imagination take me to all levels of hell) I find it brilliant to have so I can listen to recorded bbc radio programmes and have them playing all night without disturbing anyone. It means your attention is taken away from the pain and on to the daft daftness of the news quiz or goon show or whatever suits your style.

It might be worth investing in if you continue to struggle and don't want to consider a little medicated help xx

That's good to know. I was brought some from B&Q yesterday "voted best by Which" and it absolutely reeks of chemicals.

Morning all. Did you feel the sonic boom last night?

I'm off work AND IT'S SUNNY!! I don't know what to do with myself. I had planned lots of wet weather paperwork.

Have a great day everyone!

Star: I watched the A Word. Not normally an emotional person I was in tears at times (long day hadn't helped!) 

Last of sea holy roots potted up, cake in the oven, now to decide what to do with this joint of pork.

I have to agree with others, a small lawn is a right royal pain! IF you want green you can consider artificial grass or (in my eyes better) a chamomile lawn. Others I love the idea of chippings that you can put pots on to create ever changing displays of colour.

happy gardening

Paul Scherer is another nice dark tulip (in my opinion anyway; I have many in the garden) she might be interested in!

Morning all! The rain is falling BUT I'm in bed awaiting a mug of tea so it's all good.
