My leafs are bring used as templates to make felt ones to fill a plant pot in the lounge. Something dog safe but adds a bit of seasonal colour.

Unfortunately I'm not allowed plants on the windowsill in this room so a bit of creative efforts are needed.

I'm fine Pat, well; still not 100% but in terms of the latest thing, I'm fine. No idea what caused my stomach to decide it wasn't having poached egg on toast but it's loss. 

Worse still I was thinking lamb curry tonight but now have to think of something that doesn't have quite so much of a bite to it. I was really looking forward to it!

I've been out with the hound on our stroll and have collected a few leafs to try and use them as inspiration for an autumn type crafting project. I'd forgotten how slow hand stitching is!

I was going to be all productive today. But after loosing my breakfast to an episode abd it raining steadily I think it is turning very much into a sofa and blanket type of day.

Beautiful snow Dacha. I wish we got proper weather like that rather than the poor efforts that just make the place look mucky.

Glenys: good luck with your diagnosis. Diabetes can be so well managed if you stick to the diet carefully.

I can only find nonsense on the television so the hound and I have retreated to bed to listen to the radio. I don't seem to have the attention for books at the moment.

Hosta; I do love watching Spikeys. Ours seem to have disappeared. Unfortunately I've seen many on the road as a pancake impersonators so I am not holding out much hope.

It's been raining all day here Hosta. Not enough to give everything a cleansing soak (if only car cleaning worked like that) just enough to stop us doing anything outside.

Morning all. Late start here.

Clari - will your OH have time to view the Autumn colour that is so spectacular in Japan? If I ever go to Japan, I would try to time it for either Cherry Blossom or Autumn leaves.

 I doubt it unfortunately. Last time his holiday photos consisted of a shop that sold bluetooth electric toilets that he found at the train station.

Hi Lyn and Clari. It’ll feel strange for a while Clari, but at least it should be easier with only one dog.

See original post

 Pat; fortunately I didn't find the extra dog any more difficult even with her meds etc. Both dogs are quite laid back which helped and we've plenty of space in both the house and garden for them to get up to mischief.

I think Reggie is feeling a little lost now!

Morning all. we've gone from two people and two dogs to one person one dog.

Our doggy guest has gone home all in one piece and no doubt sick of the sight of grass and now my OH is off to Japan for work. I think the house is going to feel rather quiet! 

Have I missed much This week?
