OH is a firm believer in the health benefits of ice cream - I obviously didn't have enough of it on holiday 

Should I remove this plant?

I agree - get rid and start again

Morning all.

Gardener down. ........ I could do without the cold in one nostril and a raging sore "one side of throat"...........

 That's exactly what I've got!!!  (must be an internet virus )

Get some soluble Panadol Actifast and some Difflam Spray (Benzydamine Hydrochloride).  You don't need a prescription, you can get it from most pharmacies - the nurse said it would help and it really has - you can use it every hour and a half if you need to - the antibiotics haven't had time to kick in yet but the spray and Panadol have at least dealt with the pain.

Hosta, maybe that's it ... you're getting over-tired and your body somehow goes into overdrive ... like a tired and fractious toddler ... not that I'm likening you to one of those ............. I'll get my coat .........
