Do be careful Wonky!!


Well the rain is falling! Glad I cut the lawn yesterday. I wonder if I ought suggest that guests bring water proof tomorrow.


Since the GP services near me are so over strained their last advice was to " try googling your condition and see what treatment suggestions you can find and just play around until something works " I've just ordered some detox tea. It sounds like it will taste awful! Tea here is Yorkshire and a splash of semi skimmed not sixteen herbs and fruit floating in it! Still it's one of many Internet cures on my list.


Still then... anyone for a brew?

Morning all. We're meant to be scrubbing the house today ready for family visiting tomorrow for a BBQ...


... apologies for any thunderstorms and high winds in Yorkshire we'll take the blame for mentioning the idea of a BBQ!

Pansy there is no need to be rude. For some who struggle with time, mobility, shocking soil with a tendency to flood, artificial grass may be the very thing that gets them out into the garden!


Peter: I would advise that you contact the supplier of your grass. Not knowing it's chemical composite means I'd not want to risk using anything that would damage it.

I forgot to post; recently I found two hedgehogs on the road near my house. Despite their pancakes appeared one was definately bigger than the other leading me to worry that these were the two that regularly visited the garden.


Last night Reggie informed the street with his outdoor voice that a hedgehog had returned to the garden. Hurrah!!

Lesley; it's the horribly uncomfortable sofa that was meant to be a stop gap while we redecorated... 


.... I'm tempted to put it in my truck one day and take it to the recycling centre to force the issue somewhat.


Fatigue has definately kicked in. I'm ready for bed!
