Stacey, sorry to hear about your pusscat   I do think you're right to not keep throwing money at it - just let him/her see out his days in peace and quiet, not being poked around.   Daughter's much loved cat was diagnosed with a huge tumour just after Christmas, and as she was off her food and having 'digestive troubles' she and hub took the decision to have her PTS there and then, rather than distress her further and put themselves into debt.  The vet agreed with their decision.  

Fortunately a few weeks later a friend who works at a cat re-homing charity found the perfect new puss-cat for them 

Dilemma?  Bring it on 

time to take cuttings

I find that at this time of year very few cuttings need heat.  Mine are outside, either in the cold frame or against a north-facing fence.

Good morning Daisy   I was rooting for Holland too 

I'm wide awake 'cos we've got really strong winds here - a large beech tree has blown down in a pub garden a couple of miles away  http://www.norwichadvertiser24.co.uk/news/lucky_escape_for_norwich_pub_owners_after_strong_winds_cause_tree_to_crash_down_just_metres_from_building_1_3677749 

Don't think we're getting the scorcher - our local forecast says "It will be a generally cloudy day with occasionally heavy rain, possibly with thunder. Feeling cool, especially near coasts with outbreaks of rain. Fresh or strong northerly winds will slowly ease. Maximum Temperature 18 °C. " 

Growing Sweet Peas

Posted: 09/07/2014 at 20:07

Took a bunch of my sweet peas to my Aged Ps in their Res. Home this morning - they used to be one of Ma's favourites but she's a bit confused about things now, but the scent certainly reminded her of some things.  

Pa was very chuffed with them and thought I was very clever.  He loved the colours and the scent and has them in a vase by the reclining chair where he spends most of his time.  

I just foliar fed my plants first time.But..

I had a pair of Jade plants that flowered every year when I lived in Suffolk, but they were about 30 years old and I grew them very hard - they hadn't been re-potted for years and lived on a sunny south facing windowsill with the occasional drink of water and an even more occasional spell outside in a downpour to wash the dust off the leaves.  

I've been a good girl

My OH started getting into growing things this year with garlic - he's very proud of his crop - I think he might try sweetcorn next year, if I sow the idea early enough

Clari - Yviestevie is right - when several social work teams were facing redundancies here a few years ago, County Hall first asked for anyone who wanted voluntary redundancy or early retirement - after than we all had to be interviewed for the jobs that were available.  As four teams were being amalgamated into 3, and there was only one FSW post (my job) in each team, four of us were interviewed for the 3 posts.

I'm sure that's how it should be done.  

You've probably looked at this, but just in case https://www.gov.uk/staff-redundant/overview
