Fidget - before you said that OH had just told me that the sucky sweets he brought home for me last night were sugar-free!!!  Flipping sorbitol!!!

Topbird  Pretty sure it's not that - I've had noro virus (3 Christmases ago!) and this isn't it - the upset innards is my usual reaction to a high temp. This is what OH had, congested head and chest and sore tonsils. No flu-like aching limbs. 

Why don't the birds visit my feeder?

In this cold weather the birds know what's good for them - fatty foods provide the much higher level of energy they need to keep warm.

 Well, now we know why HM and D of E didn't travel to Sandringham by train - and why Wills and Kate took their two to the in-laws' for Christmas instead of spending it with the Royal family - last thing you want with two under-fives is a lurgy like this


Another dose of Imodium taken ........ sorry if that's too much info

I've not been taking cold medication, just a couple of doses of cough mixture and some paracetamol so it's definitely part of the lurgy


LG - could the bird have been a visiting Redwith or Fieldfare?

Courgettes

Posted: 06/01/2017 at 14:22

Lack of water weaking the plant and making it susceptible to powdery mildew.


Courgettes need lots of humous in the soil so that it is very moisture retentive, and plenty of watering - at least a bucket full per day when it is flowering/fruiting.

Yes they do use them Obbelix - some of the very early babies are far too small for commercially available baby clothes.


And some babies have ops and interventions that mean Babygro type clothing isn't appropriate.


Also, if a baby doesn't make it the nurses will make sure baby is looking loved and dressed in pretty clothes if that's what parents want. 


On a different note .................


Warning! 
The lurgy has another aspect ........ dose of Immodium taken
If you've not had the lurgy yet, get some supplies in ...............................................

Hi Alan


! would leave it until after the flower has bloomed - you may damage roots which would cause the flower/s to fail.
