......LYN. I don't think it was a plane as there were about 8, 9, 10 bangs. .......

RB where have you been?  It was all over the news and the press and everything!

Think the general consensus was that it was Father Christmas testing the after-burners on his new sleigh

CATS

Or even something that dissolved cats?   ..........   Smacked wrist for Dove

When we had cats we had a large outdoor sand tray in the log store and our cats used it and left my garden alone - my neighbours said that our cats seemed not to use their garden either, so apparently it worked.  Afraid I can't remember how often the sand got changed or what we did with the contents .... I'm talking about when my children were small and anyway, I think the ex dealt with that side of things

Verdun - so glad she's happier today.

Re her glasses - you have to keep asking staff to make sure she always has her glasses with her.  If she hasn't its the Home's fault and they must sort things out.  Either this gentleman needs better supervision, or the Home is not able to meet his needs and it's another phone call to Social Services I'm afraid.

Also, Verdun's Mum's GP should be aware that she's not eating properly - , The Lovely Home weigh Pa regularly and at the slightest concern they ring the surgery and he has Fortisip-like meal supplements - on prescription I'm pretty sure - we've never been asked to pay anything.

Problem

I was listening to a programme yesterday - a builder said that modern bricklayer training is 18 months in a college rather than a 3 year course involving site work as well as college.  He said that the college course doesn't equip young men to come onto a site and get on with the job, but as 'qualified' they have to be paid full whack while being mentored/supervised/taught by a more experienced brickie.  He said it's cheaper to bring in skilled brickies from abroad and pay them a bit more, than to wet-nurse a newly qualified college leaver.

I see that bricklayers are getting paid £1000 for five days work in some places great work if you can get it. .....

I think Lavenderlass lives in the Mid Suffolk area - if brickies down that way were getting paid that much my ex would be a millionaire - and apparently he isn't

As Dave Morgan says, leave a few but not a thick layer.  Rake them away from any plants, but leave the rest for the worms to pull down into the soil

The fact that Chicky has woodburners probably means that they don't have to prioritise her repair
