Good morning Bushman

Knees can really be a problem - think there must be an inherent design fault - I've tried complaining to the Maker but I keep being ignored

No overnight frost here in the east Pat, the lowest temp was 2.3C and it's just damp and soggy.  I could send some dampness your way if you like

Good morning all  G'day Pat

From my cousins' awful experience the other year, and books I was given as a child, I know that bushfires are terrifying - I applaud your OH and his pals who do their best to keep everyone safe Pat. 

A long time ago I was given a Sunday School prize of a book about courageous girls - one of whom was an Australian lass who had laid down over her little brother on a railway track while a bush fire raged over and around them - after reading that I felt well equipped to cope with anything Australia could throw at me ... .  I'm a Celebrity seems a little tame after that

That's what I would do - you'll probably have to cut it back when you move in June and forgo fruit for 2016 - but otherwise I'm sure it'll be fine.

I wore mine for a couple of hours this morning before tennis, to get used to it, and by the time I was there I almost forgot I was wearing it.
