Got it Chicky - thanks!  I don't think the problem has been sorted, so much as I'm having to  resize the font on each page and that seems to have brought the Reply box back.  

I sent an email yesterday about the PM reply box problem, and have sent another this morning about the resizing problem that some of us are having.

Good morning Verdun

The other day Archiepem said that the Board's pages were all different sizes - now it's happening to me - I'm having to reset each page to the default.  Is it happening to anyone else or just to me? 

Help please to stop ground covering plant spreading.

Good morning all 

Chicky, I'm going to send you a test PM now as I think they're working - let me know if you get it.

Get to know your garden - watch what appears when and where - note the views and vantage points at different times of the day/year - and visit lots of gardens with a camera and notebook - then you'll find the perfect tree for that spot

I'll get Nurofen heat patches - my daughter suffers from sciatica as well - is going for xrays shortly.  I'll get some for her too.  

FB - think you deserve an early night ((hugs)) - my Pa spent his 90th birthday in a coma - wrongly prescribed mix of medication

I think there's some sort of body reaction when the pressure comes off Dove. It will all settle down in time. 

Think you might be right Nut 

We don't have a microwave - when we had one we hardly ever used it and I'd rather have the worktop space!  

Next door (not the side with the poorly cat, the other side) is an elderly single gent.  He has someone come to mow the lawn and clip the shrubs etc.  I thought I'd ask him how much he'd charge to dig the new border so when he was cutting next door's lawn the other day I popped around and asked for his contact details - however he's quite old himself and only marginally less frail than our neighbour, and he has carers x3 each day!!!  

Good job OH says he'll help with the heavy stuff

Hurrumph - not at all sure if this retirement thingy is good for me - first week I had a stiff neck and shoulder - today I bent over to pick up an onion and something in my back went ping!  

This is ridculous - I've got so unfit since I've been office-based.  I've got to get a bit fitter before I start digging a new flower border - if anything else goes ping I'll mess up my trip to Russia!!!

Need to find some gentle exercise classes somewhere!!!

Aha Nut, you (or rather your OH ) could undercut Xa Tollemache - the thing is there are no images online - you have to go and have a look - she's not daft, she knows some lucky gardeners have tame welders
