Oh dear ... there's a glitch on the forum at the moment preventing the uploading of pictures ... it is being tackled by the Tech Team ... hopefully they'll sort it before long ...

Hello all   Late on parade today ... have been tieing in toms and cukes and checking on stuff ... I think I've trained the Under Gardener ... yesterday he started watering things unbidden 'because they look as if they need it' and today he's remembered it's time to feed the courgettes 

Now it's time to settle down at Wimbledon ............

Hosta, I bet those houses take a lot of costly maintenance ...     It's always the flippin' loaded ones that watch the pennies ... I remember a couple of miniscule wedding present cheques from the 'Very Loaded' side of the family ... I mean, I was grateful to get anything, but it did make Ma sniff a bit 

Liri ... Hefty stopped appearing over a year ago ... after that mild wet winter ... and last summer we didn't see any, but this summer I started putting some food right by the 'Hedgehog Gate' in the fence and we soon started seeing hedgehogs in the garden again ... probably Hefty's offspring ... there were several in the garden last night ... they woke OH up around 1am , snuffling and grunting and pushing the dish around on the terrace ... I sleep much more soundly than he does ...

Hello again Lost in Suffolk 

I'm afraid there's a glitch on the system that is preventing photos uploading properly ... it's been reported and hopefully can be sorted soon.  

We'll just have to cultivate some patience

Pdoc ... I ought to explain that at the time things between the Serbs Bosnians and Croats were kicking off  in 92/93 my then husband had taken it upon himself to do some relief work out there ... he went missing for quite a while and nobody ... absolutely nobody knew where he was  ... he had been taken captive by the Serbs ... but of course I didn't know that until he eventually got back ... I didn't know anything ....... not very nice for me ....... even if our marriage was almost at an end anyway ... if I'd actually loved him I can't imagine how I'd have felt ...........

Well, I'm not and never have been signed up to Linkedin .... but for some reason  they've sent me a job description that they think I should go for a Hire Co-ordinator for an Oilwell company    Trying very hard to think of any transferable skills

.....  I am not used to being home alone.

I now realise what it was like for OH., when I was away all the time.


See original post

  Punkdoc ((hugs))  ... No you don't .... you don't have any idea ... you know that (barring awful and unlikely accident) your OH will return home safe and sound.  She was scared out of her mind that she would never see you again ... and with very good reason.  I think that if you say to her that you realise what it was like for her when you were away, you might get a well deserved ear-full!!!
