Meany or being careful !

Verdun, horrifyingly  you share that trait with my ex!  However, from the sounds of things you seem to have adoped more successful strategies than he ever did.   Nowadays I think Mrs C #2 keeps him strictly under control 

Meany or being careful !

There's places you can haggle (car dealershops, mobile phone shops, buying furniture etc)  and there's places you can't - Boots the Chemist, Tesco, Sainsbugs, Waitrose, M&S .... oh, and every petrol station I've ever come across.

Do you grow Aconitum's?

We need information then we can assess risk, take precautions and get on with our lives.  We look both ways before we cross the road and we're careful with boiling water.  I use an oven glove before taking a hot casserole out of the oven and I'm  careful when handling sharp knives.

We protect small children from danger and as they grow we teach them how to protect themselves.

That's life

Morning Italophile - were you surfing?

Good morning all

OL, don't be a silly billy ((hugs))  you haven't let anyone down - sometimes life gets in the way - the garden and the forum will still be there whether you get around to doing stuff next spring or in 6 years time - but if it's not going to be for 6 years let us know and we'll have a whipround and send you a machete for Christmas so you can still find your front door!!!     First things first and earning a living is pretty high up the priority list!!!

Panda ((hugs)) hope all is going well

In my experience a good hunting cat will kill plenty of young rats - I've seen it happen on farms - but it's rarely that a cat will tackle a fully-grown rat and it's likely to come away with some nasty bites if it tries.

But of course, if you've got a cat getting rid of the young rats that's half (or even three quarters) of the problem solved   at least it's keeping the population under control.
