BL - take some paracetamol and some honey and hot lemon, wrap yourself up and take it easy - it sounds as if you've got a chill.  ((hugs))

Poor Lawn

Others may disagree, but I'd aerate it then give it a moss treatment in the spring and a thorough scarifying/raking when that's worked, to get rid of the dead stuff. 

When the ground has warmed up I late spring I think I'd scarify again then scatter some general purpose lawn seed (preferably just before rain is forecast for the next few days).  Then leave it alone for a while - no fertiliser for the summer - once the grass seed has germinated mow once a week on a med to high setting.

A leatherjacket nematode treatment in August and perhaps just one specialist autumn lawn feed in October.

Fingers crossed.

Fortunately our neighbour does have regular carers going in - getting him up and putting him to bed and attending to his meals etc several times throughout the day so if he was poorly it wouldn't be long before he was visited, and he has an alarm so he can summon help if needed.  It's just I have that Miss Marple tendency, and I notice when things are out of the normal run of things.
