Anyone done any gardening today?

I know this sounds silly but we can tell when the elderly german shepherd has not had their glucosamine chew: she can't jump on the sofa! Since I don't think she knows about the placebo effect it's worth considering.

Morning all. Pdoc if you catch up with your garden can you nip in and look at mine? I'm considering a few days off to catch up and rest... but you can guarantee with my luck it'll snow!

Ahh over the shoulder holders. I'm afraid its industrial strength here Dainty things never seem to last the... pounding... they get.

My "day off" has involved taking over 500 fingerprints; I think I'm cross eyed trying to spot the loops and whorls. I should really clean the house now :/

A good intention goes wrong

Why did I agree to do a teacher a favour and book a class of 50 in on my day off? Since starting this new job I've earnt more days off than I have used!

Good luck Beaus Mum!

Another working weekend followed by working tomorrow on my day off. I'm trying to dream up some ideas for a low pollen houseplant that will cope with freezing cold and the heat - I want to soften the classroom up a little for younger visitors. I'm also thinking of a fish tank but that may have to wait a while. Gardening gets everywhere!

Glad the birds got my note and map to yours Dove!

Dove - I shall nip out once I've got some socks on and inform them that they're to form an orderly queue for my clipboard; that ought convince them to scuttle off! 

As for muddy floors; my partner has size 13 feet with a tendency to fall off the nice wide path into my flower beds or trample the grass: I am well used to mud throughout the house & at least the dog is easier to wash!
