HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 11/12/2014 at 07:38

  I forgot to say good morning ......... good morning all  ......... hope everyone's hatches remained battened overnight.  Not bad here in the east, a bit of a noisy wind, but nothing like some of you've got I'm sure.  Hope no serious damage has been done

.......  I have a tortoise shell butterfly in my bathroom that is trying to sleep. but the heat of the bath wakes it up and it flaps about in the blinds and i am afraid it might damage itself.  I would normally just put it outside but it is very cold out there and i fear i might just be putting it to its death.

Any ideas anyone. Do i leave it till spring and hope it does not injure itself or put it out now, where it might freeze? 

Only 2 more baths till March for me.Will it be ok?

 

We found one upstairs the other day - OH put it in a quiet corner of the garage (it's cool but doesn't freeze in there as it's joined to the house).  Have you a shed, garage, log store, loft where it would be better off?

what a night

Good morning Pansyface - hope the crash wasn't too awful!  Not too bad here at all, but neighbour's downpipe has detached itself from the guttering and their cats are squealing at each other.

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.
