 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?

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 .................

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.

Fantastic ......... just what we need!  A bit of kiteboarding to clear the cobwebs when we've all recovered from this lurgy ............

I've alerted the Mods - I'm sure they'll all want one 

Perhaps a GW Kiteboarding Demonstration Team Display at Chelsea this year?

LG (hugs) - I'm not doing anything either - my temperature's up a bit today so I've taken some paracetamol and am also taking chesty cough mixture - I've thrown some chopped apple, suet and seeds at the birds and that's it.  It's bin day tomorrow - OH will put them out tonight. 

Haven't heard anything from Hosta ... hopefully he's happily topping up the tan
