Morning all.

What a funny sensation to be waking up with only moderate crippling stomach cramps - stress & IBS have a lot to answer for! Plenty of jobs lined up alongside job hunting including going to collect some bikes for a friend who is doing a charity ride to raise money after a family member had heart surgery st Sheffield Children's Hospital. Trouble is... he didn't have a suitable bike til now!

Glorious sunny day outside again.

Evening all.
Had a lovely few hours at t'chicken place (Bank View Farm - I think it was Mrs. G. That told me of them) having a beginners guide to chicken husbandry. Proved a good refresher and amazingly I remembered most of it from baby sitting my neighbours hens many many years ago.

Measured up where we want the run to go - now we just need to build it! Partner has set me the challenge of moving a wheel barrow of soil a day so it may take a while as the area was once used as a dumping ground for the garden when they built the patio.

Wondering how I'm going to find time to look for a new job with the to do list that's being compiled for me!!

Morning all!  Its almost too hot already to do anything, thank goodness I got all the cleaning done yesterday. 

Still no rain here - we must in our own mini eco system the rain just seems to skirt around the edge of us!

Well, til Monday when the job hunting starts!


Whoop whoop!!

I wish I'd won the lottery.  I'd be getting my redundancy handed to me in style. With a great big shiny fire engine on speed dial to plough into the car park at speed horns blazing to give the personality incompatible fire marshal quite the heart attack!

Mrs. G - hope today goes quickly so you can get back to the good stuff!

Oh dear! Sounds like mice from the damage I've seen before. They seem to like to taste each one

Morning all! 

Hands still aching from yesterdays fire engine cleaning. There's still some work to be done but she's looking lovely! Spent a lot of time on the ladder wondering if I could trust this lot with some hanging baskets to add a bit of colour to the place.

Hope you all have a wonderful day - nearly the weekend!

We use the orange stuff KEF as its more delicate. The green stuff is still around though and much better to use if you need to involve washing in the shower with it!

No Sherberts here alas. Though would make the day in the office more fun...


I need a morale support dog. One that comes to work with me and soothes my mind so that I don't feel the urge to punch people.
