Morning all. Preparing myself for a scouts invasion this weekend at the museum. Part excited part dreading it! At least they've not got any food allergies; one group I have visiting later in the year are going to be a real challenge to accommodate with so many allergies declared.

Pat I hope you have a lovely meal out! Please let us know what Russian food involves I must confess I have no idea. Potato and vodka? I'm intrigued!

Fairygirl: my sleeping bag is already there! I have to survive a scout camp at the museum this weekend so these drugs had better hurry up and settle things down. 

As for hot water bottle Dove... you've heard how cold the place is! (Think Victorian building where when the heating systems were ripped out in the 60s no one put anything else back in. We've some beautiful radiators but they're not connected to anything! Of course being closed to public means the only heater we'll be allowed on its the one in the bosses office. Have to save money any way we can!)


Hosta: no doing too much and buttering things up before the surgery!

Morning all.

Long day at work today as we've a training day with volunteers in the evening that doesn't start til 19.00. I wonder if they'd be upset if I brought a blanket with me.

Our dawn chorus is a blackbird and Robin fighting in the garden. Every morning they both have a stand off on the lawn and make such a noise you can't hear the little jobbies in the hedges.

Started to feel better this evening. Alas time for another dose of poison. Well done DD and side kick for rescuing the lamb!

I'd say put the utility type stuff at the bottom of the garden; you want to have all the beautiful stuff close to the house so you can enjoy them from the windows on a wet day like today!

Decided to take the hound for a walk at a local country park. All three entrances had height restrictions so I couldn't get in. So we parked up at a wood and... everything fell from the sky. Thunder, lightening, raindrops the size of small lakes....

Back to my nest on the sofa!

Lyn. I just had a thought about your father's gentleman veg. Would a condom catheter be of any use? Not bring well versed in gentleman veg I don't know how you keep the condom on but if he can still pee independently the doctor might consider it a safe non invasive alternative?
