Morning all. No we're here Dove: but its so dark out I think many of us are preferring to stay in bed.

Silly question of the day!

Hello Little Owl! Do go and join the Hello Forkers thread: it is rather hard to keep up but if you hang on long enough people come round with cups of tea and cake.

Mel: I used to have a blackbird that guarded the garden whose tail looked like he had been picked up and dipped in a paint pot. He would have been given a beautiful name... but he was an absolute arse hole and got "arsehole" as a name instead. 

I want to know. Since dogs have to sniff *everything* and pee on *anything* else: would they recognise a dog they'd never met through its pee stains?

Since you might be loath to enjoy that area of the garden: can you turn it into a wild life friendly area?

Oh bless her Dove!

Oh Dove I am glad she's having a good day today. She sounds quite happy!

Liri: its certainly a struggle trying to work out what will grow or not here (not least because I grew up 100 miles further south and the difference in climate is noticeable: especially when my mother is telling me she's putting her tomatoes out and its too cold to even germinate seeds up here).

DD: my father would always munch anything that left unattended in the house. Do you have a dog? Next time to make some biscuits keep them nice simple shapes and if you catch him snacking while they cool down ask him why he is eating the dogs medicated biscuits.

Or just bake him biscuits and lace them with laxatives. I can assure you that even though I can confirm the wifi reaches the bathroom you do get bored of sitting in there after a while.

You cruel woman Dove! 

 I'm playing with fruits I want in the garden. I wish you could hunt sites by region! I'm trying very hard to get things that will be happy in Yorkshire.

Thanks Flowers. The trouble is parents seem insistent to send poorly children on school trips so that they don't miss out and we all know how covered in germs they are at the best of times! It doesn't help that I have a naturally delicate stomach anyway that seems to find any excuse to act up. 

Still: its gloriously sunny out, the dog has calmed down, I've managed to get the washing machine on as so not to entirely waste the day, and if I keep up this drinking lark I'll be too busy peeing to notice I'm unwell.

Morning all. I've been up most of the night with some kind of stomach bllluuuuuggggghhhhhhhhhh. Not sure if my school group or girl guide ghost hunters brought it but its meant that I've not been able to visit a school today which I'm so upset about. Taking the museum into the classroom is such fun!

I've had to retreat back to bed and already I'm bored
