Hello Forkers ... July Edition

Morning all! 

Well it appears to have rained all night so I dare not think what the field I'm going to be stood in all weekend will be like (information stand for work). Looks like my new boots will be getting *horrors* muddy!

I just hope the rain doesn't put people off visiting the show.

Pat; I will confess in the winter I sit in the greenhouse to get and soak up the sun. It's usually crammed fit for bursting with pots and bits but the way the sun heats your joints; well central heating never does that. I do like the idea of a nice scheduled space; I hope your builder can come up with a solution.

I probably should get up. Efforts to engage in chat with his lordship aren't working as he's having a lay in apparently and can fall asleep quicker than pass wind. Maybe I'll leave him a post it note telling him how I love him (But that if he leaves a mess in my nice clean kitchen he's taking me out to a posh restaurant tonight... that should scare him).

Dove; I had to get on far too many before I found a pair that would accommodate my calves; what skinny minis do they model these on??

Please pass on my excitement and CONGRATULATIONS to Wonky!!

Ob; I've brought cars for less than I spent on those wellies. They'd best not wear out too quickly!

Dove; they're from the muck company. I went on a walk tonight to bed them in and see where if anywhere they catch (I don't have the best sensation for my feet).

We'll see how they are after 9 hours in them tomorrow!

Oh Hosta that sounds scary!!

I'm not going to mention work today. Suffice to say that on Monday I'm going to book myself in for a haircut and the mass of greys that will be forming covered. 

As I'm working in a field all weekend (a country fair) I decided to go and get some new wellingtons. £120  wasn't quite how much I was expecting to spend bit they've so comfortable I thought it worth the risk since I walk miles in the winter with the hound. 

Home alone tonight, I think it'll be a good book and many mugs of tea!

Nanny; has Luna had anything different to eat? With Reggie (who is raw fed) his poo is always almost jet black when he has had spleen or too much liver. Chicken turns it lighter and tripe; oh my! (He does love it so)

Nanny; With regards to what happened to my back that was a cycle accident. Keep fit, protect the environment, save money, look smug when eating monster sized meals because you know you'll burn it all off... get run over by a drunk driver. Still; I managed to right the car off with my body.

Chicky; that's quite the race for life! I thought they were only ever 5k or 10k. Will you be collecting sponsorship? Do send us a link!

There's no need to be sorry Dacha; after all you didn't cause It!

Dacha: I've a spinal cord injury, damage where I broke it in five places, several collapsed discs, and enough scar tissue to make it look like Spider-Man sneezed in there so don't worry it's nothing that hasn't been prodded at repeatedly :)

Rum normally works wonders but it's a little early in the day for that.
