The overall number of hedgehogs in the UK has fallen dramatically of late and they are endangered. 

We've got them visiting our garden every night, and several people on here have reported new sightings this year.

Have a look here for ways to encourage and help hedgehogs

Melons and cucumbers

Don't pick your melons by size - wait until they're ripe!   You'll know they're ripe when they smell sweet and have started to crack around the stem

New plants appear

Good morning all   I tried to stay awake for meteors, but no hope - I thought about setting the alarm for 1am, but thought again   I need my sleep

Mild and overcast here this morning - I'm meeting a friend in the city for lunch - anyone need anything from the market or M&S?

So not too bad then re your mum Dove?  Losing dentures seems part and parcel of care home behaviour happened regularly with my mum.  However, often it was the staff at fault.  Too easy to blame the residents.  mum "lost" her dentures, her spectacles, her hearing aid....all of which would affect her well being.  


No, she was much happier today than on my last visit. 

We can't blame the staff for the missing dentures - they've institued quite a good bedtime routine and remove the teeth and put them out of Ma's reach when she goes to bed - they seem to go missing when she's in her room on her own 'cos she's asked to go for a rest ........ not a lot they can do about that.
