Hi Clari  It's not too bad if I stay still. Moving isn't good .... I'm not good at staying still 


do your washing ... You can hang it on our line ... I'm not doing laundry today and the weather is set fair ...

Hurrah!!!! Welcome back Bushman .... So very good to see you 


Some of us are more okay than others ... Eg LilyP and I have both done daft things necessitating visits to A&E and impacting on our ability to garden

Good morning all. 


Ive been left in bed with you lot on the phone and a mug of coffee while OH goes up to the farm shop to unlock and set up. He'll be back around nine to help me get up. 


I was also awake around 4. I'd have loved to be out in the garden at dawn ... My favourite time ... Sooooooo frustrating ..... Sorry you can tell me to shut up if I keep going on...


fairy Scotland looks gorgeous at the moment and R4 is just telling us about the lovely weather there at the moment

Just snip the stalks.  


No, don't build anything around the tree trunk ... it will rot the trunk  and you mustn't cover the graft point... not good

Fidget, it wasn't  really a slip ...... I've had an unstable knee for over 20 years and sometimes if I 'swerve' without thinking it just gives way ... I can feel the bones move over each other


 Yesterday as I turned around it just went and I dropped face first onto the ground, so my foot was wrenched right around  onto the edge of a stepping stone as I fell   It happens so quickly I don't even have time to put my arm out to save myself ... probably just as well or I'd break that as well. 


I'm on a pretty high dose of levothyroxine, so I take 1200 mgm of calcium + Vitamin D a day.
