theyve said it'll be Jodie Whittacker (sp?) ... We didn't watch Broadchurch do don't recall her, but only occasionally have I felt that they'd cast the role wrong. Looking forward to it ...


But just for now it's R4 and a new Book at Bedtime so ..... Night night folks - see you in the morning ...

.......... I do agree that it must be difficult sometimes when they try to help  and women get all 'feminist' on them. The 'door opening' is a classic example. I hold open doors for anyone, regardless of gender, because it's the polite thing to do, and women shouldn't get all shirty if men do that for the. Sadly - many of them do. 



 Totally agree Fairy ... I'm as liberated as they come but for me holding a door open for someone is just good manners, no matter whatever gender they may be.  If a woman  gets huffy about a chap holding a door for her it indicates to me that she, may see herself primarily through her gender whereas the chap holding the door may not.  


Funny ... the ir*ning thing ... I used to like doing it ... Radio 4 on and I'd spend a happy hour or more doing it all ... I've even been known to ir*n tea towels ........ then one day I just couldn't be faffed with it any more ....... think I suddenly felt that life was too short

I realised the other day that I've only used the ir*n three times since Chr*stmas ... not sure whether I should be   or  ................ I would add that neither thas OH ... clothes are either dried on the clothes horse in the winter or outside in the summer ... if they're hung out carefully and folded carefully when dry only a few of our bestest clothes need that hot flattening thing ......... but of course I'm retired and OH doesn't have to wear smart shirts ....... phew!

hostas

Posted: 17/07/2017 at 20:00

Hosta flowers do grow tall.  Some people remove the flower stem before the flowers open as they prefer the appearance without them, or because they want the plant to use its energy to build up the plant rather than produce flowers.


On well grown plants I allow the flower to bloom, then remove the flower stem when the flowers are dying off ... just snip the stem down low.  


Some hosta flowers are beautifully scented.

My aunt, who was a legal secretary using old fashioned typewriters that you really had to hammer at the keys, was so incapacitated by CTS towards the end of her life that she couldn't even feed herself... but she refused any sort of treatment.  


A woman I know had both her wrists operated on at the same time ... she was a keen gardener (the sort who opened her garden to the public) and didn't want to miss more than one season in the garden by having them done at different times ........ she said that her husband had to do absolutely everything for her while they healed, but it was worth it as her garden didn't get too out of hand and she never had any more problems with the CTS

Dachalover ... Wonky started getting symptoms when in an IT job  ... she now has her dream job as a gardener on a beautiful country estate but the CTS is still very painful ... her GP has prescribed splints to sleep in and she can have steroid injections ... her father had CTS badly at her age (he was a builder) and the injections really really helped him ... I hope they work for Wonky. 


I hope your son can get some relief .......... it's a horrible condition.

Some days it's just inconsequential chit chat ......... for some reason today got a bit deep and meaningful .... it's not that common an occurrence really

Dachalover .......... just pop in and say hello from time to time .... that's all it's about .... no one expects ongoing contributions .... we have things to do, lives to live .... we just pop in and out ... some of us pop in throughout the day, some just once a week or even less .... my daughter Wonky has a new job and carpal tunnel syndrome so at the moment is restring her wrists and hardly posts at all ... unless she has something she wants to say .............. so please keep on popping in .......... and the foibles of a misguided man sound intriguing
