Morning all. Doing a 09:00 - 23:00 shift today so no chance of getting the garden sorted for the weekend.  Looks like we'll be busy tomorrow!

Morning all! 

Went to Ikea last night to buy some garden furniture we were taken with on our last visit. Well timed as the inlaws are coming over at the weekend so we might finally have enough seats for everyone! Now to check the weather report for a bbq... oh.

Morning all. 

Well I got a phone call yesterday lunch time saying please come to the hospital asap. So I walk the few miles to the hospital to find the rush is because the machine they've been wanwanting to use for a test on me is working today so the specialist wanted me in quick before it broke again!

I am now sporting one hearing aid (don't want to overwhelm me with two straight away): EVERYTHING IS SO LOUD! Even my bra makes a noise when I walk!

Add this to my Makaton training (I need to find somewhere to practice desperately!) And we're on our way to getting sorted.

I'm thinking a flame thrower Dove in the hope that it might slow things down from popping back up the moment I look away.

Also - just want to give out a shout out to Mrs G... for pointing me in the makaton direction: I've completed levels 1 - 4 & am now very impatient to get it in use around work!

Morning all! 

I booked this weekend off (worked three in a row) to find his lordship is going away. Looks like I might get some gardening time after all this week after all.

By gardening I mean hacking back the weeds and trying to work out what happened to my best laid plans!

Morning all. Been very busy with work (its my day off today: I've just submitted several documents and am having a break before I finish off some more) so the garden, my partner, you lot, are all very neglected I'm afraid.

Hope your cousin passes on some good news, or T least stable news soon. But surely you're not nearing your 60's?!

60 children visiting today and I'm expecting it to be BUSY! So of course I wake with my ibs flaring and the dog throwing up  hurry up blood tests!

Evening all. Still awake (just!) And alas its rained far too much to have been a constructive day outside. We did at least get the bedroom deep cleaned (wardrobes in the hallway and bed dragged out).

By we... Reggie "helped".

V.e.t.s wasn't fun: always hilarious to have a nurse judging his behaviour when you point out his hates the v.e.t.s. and w.o.m.e.n. of course he's not going to be an angel!!

What fertiliser have you been using on the soil BLT? Also are you planting in the same area each time? (Just wondering about any nasties or diseases that might be causing you to suffer so).
