Why do people always say that? I was a vegie for several years (my Meds meant for reasons I'll never understand made me hate the taste of meat) and people would either say (if it was a good day) oh you look too well to be a vegetarian but if it was a bad day (think recovering from an accident and thus full of painkillers) it would be blamed on my being a vegetarian rather than perhaps the disc crushing my spinal cord.

3'C outside and it can't decide whether it wants to be dry, moist, or absolutely grim out.

Still with help (1 x nosy dog and 1 x nosy robin) we've tipped the compost bins (3) and refilled one. The rest scattered around the garden and left for the Robin to finish his business.

Only found the one small mouse looking somewhat surprised. 

I'm trying to sum up the enthusiasm to go and get some butter for our crumble dessert. I'm not sure lurpak will cut it. Maybe we can just have fruit tonight.

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.
