I'm soaking my chilli seeds in tea overnight; does anyone know what happened to our chilli expert Stacey?

Morning all. Been rather AWOL of late. (Absent with out leave to continue the theme of military acronyms).


Pat: how do you even function at that heat? I'd be hiding in the pantry long before it got that high. I honestly don't think I'd able to physically get enough fluids in me to function much less try to play cricket.


As of today I'm now working 5 days a week. Alas it's to baby sit another project and I won't go into more detail as my blood pressure is already too high because of it.


I've got a new boss though - this makes 8 since May. He's a good chap: too good for this place but hopefully he'll hang around.


The garden is... one hell of a mess. Between the dog and his lordship making paths in the grass to get to the shed / spot in the hedge where Reggie can watch the school children and their rat infested bird feeders, and the general neglect from focusing on the house. I'm going to order a skip so we can get some serious work. The hedge is coming to the end of its natural life with the care it's had; I want to try to see if I can relay it / cut it right down and hope it will regrow. I know we need to start now before the birds return (we'll do a section at a time so they'll always have somewhere - mind you all the neighbours have gone and filled the streets with cats now).


so; what have I missed?

Once you have washed all the goodness out of the soil have you a fail proof plan on how to restore the


balance?

Sometimes I miss my crutches; you used to be able to steer the "traffic" around you to give you space. Very useful when visiting the town when people seem to be tempted to push rather than ask you to move out of their way.


I've been and collected his lordship and my beloved puppy. Very long drive in not great conditions. I think the hound needed to come home. All he's done is sleep! Poor devil his routine has been really messed around it must be so confusing for them.


The fire is roaring; we're meant to be meeting up with friends tonight but it's so cold out I could easily fall asleep here with Reggie.

Afternoon all.


Can't say much about the Tele but I have found Good Omens on the radio so all is good here.
