As snug as a bug in a rug

That would give me goosebumps at night! Very spooky looking. Do you take the fleece off on warm days to let the air get through? I've never used fleece before (my plants have to take their chances in the unheated greenhouse) but ought probably be more sensible than that.

Can I move into your shed? It seems to have so many more facilities than my house.

Morning all. 

Today's job is to get the dog to eat

 The fireworks have put him off and it's hard enough to get him to eat at the best of times. Trouble is not eating = so much dog gas. 

Talking of bad smells; that 25kg of meat is still in a Parcelforce lost in transit van. I pity whoever finds it on Monday! 

Laying in bed awaiting the customary tea in bed (it make take a while). I have real cravings for pork pie!

Morning all.

Blowing a viciously cold wind through the garden right now. Anyone needing more leafs for their mulch... they're all back in my garden.

has Reggie had supper? much more important.

See original post

 He won't eat with the fireworks going off. Well; more correctly he won't eat his dinner. The dehydrated chicken snacks he's happily putting away!

That's a lot of cake!

Shakes you...

We had a three year old boy visit the museum on Monday. We were closed and everything I could reach was disinfected to within an inch of its life. There was no fuss no melodrama, it was just a normal day.

As I watched them explore I learnt that he'd spent more of his short life with cancer than without. It was his first museum visit.

If it tugs a string in the heart of a stranger I can't imagine how pulled taut his families are.

Oh Hosta not good. I've not had a hypo for years; they're evil things. God bless strawberry jam.

Well my lost in transit van 25kg of meat is..  lost. But Parcelforce hope to have it here tomorrow. Whether it'll be any good or not I don't know but it's their van that will stink with all that tripe and offal not mine!

I am so grateful for twitter being able to contact Parcelforce directly. The food company has been completely radio silence while I tried to request help from them via phone and email.
