I understand NannyB ... anxiety and  huge need to feel in control ... because when he wasn't in control something truly terrible happened  ... it's a type of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

There's so much natural bird food around at this time of year they're probably not interested in it Lee - they're hardly visiting the bird feeders either at the moment.


Reminds me of the old nursery rhyme about sowing seeds ... ""One for the rook, one for the crow, one to rot and one to grow."

Hello all   


Hazel ... hope the doctors come up with something to help your daughter ((hugs))


I had some fleabane appear in a broken bucket of old compost the other year ... no idea where it came from .... I didn't really have anywhere suitable for it and Nut wanted some so I took it to her ... bucket as well

.............Thinking of going out plant hunting!!




I'd come with you if I wasn't watching the tennis ........  watch out for those sticky plant labels ... you may come back with enough plants for all of us 


It's tough being 'the sounding board' isn't it ... especially when it makes you feel that there should be something you could be doing to put things right ... is there someone else you OH could talk to as well ... therapist/counsellor type person?

No, they shouldn't be too long at only 2-3 ft ... watch this video .... the branches don't have to be horizontal from the bottom, ease them gently towards the horizontal ... 45 degrees is ok ...

Perhaps I phrased it badly NannyB ... I'm sorry ... I wasn't being dismissive ... I knew about your lesion and I of all people know how important it is to get these things seen to ... my son has had several lumps removed as have I, and my brother has had two nasty ones  removed, and my niece had a melanoma removed in her early twenties, leaving a hole you could put an orange in.


 I'm sorry if it felt that I wasn't taking your concerns seriously ... what I was saying is that we can only deal with so much 'stuff' at once, but I wasn't suggesting that you ignore it ... what I mean is that you do what you have to do to trigger what has to happen and then you 'put it in the box and put the lid down' until you have to do something else with it. 


It is so easy to carry all your worries around in your head and then you can't deal with anything properly and you just feel out of control and that's when panic sets in.  


Do what has to be done then put it in a box.  ((hugs))   and if you need to rant and unload ... we are here.


How are the builders getting on today?
