HELLO FORKERS!

Oh!  Hello KEF!    Welcome back

Listening to the Archers .... I know Pat's gone through a lot, but does anyone else feel like giving her a shake???  Or am I a heartless beast

Strictly is back!

And the hair cut was a huge improvement   I'm quite a fan of long hair on a chap if it's good hair eg Neil Oliver, but that lad's hair was in such poor condition it reminded me of Phil on Timeteam (mind you, it suits Phil, but not for a youngster).

No, grass is still a bit damp and front lawn looks a bit chewed, but it's better than it was and I've done the edges as well to stop the rampaging couch grass invading the bed. 

It had to be done this morning or not at all 'cos Verdun says it's going to rain tomorrow!

Maintenance only anyone?

"Sitting back and looking at them" is for planning the next bit - best done with a glass of vino collapso in your hand

Ducks on my pond

If they only visit occasionally you might find that come springtime a female might choose your pond area for her nest and nursery pool - they like somewhere secluded away from the randy drakes

Ducks on my pond

Lovely, but I'd just let them come and go and not do too much to encourage them - if you get too many ducks too often the water will go green, they'll eat all the vegetation and poop all over the banks.  Visiting ducks are better than residents

Oooh Jo thanks - just what's needed

I'm going to pull some scruffs on and go out and mow the lawn just as soon as it's reasonable to make that much noise on a Sunday morning - 9am?  Then I can drink more coffee, listen to the Archers and have a shower and put my face on before meeting friends here http://www.watersedgewoodsend.co.uk/ for lunch  

Japanese Knotweed on neighbour’s property

Posted: 04/10/2015 at 08:22

This may be of interest http://www.solicitorsjournal.com/property/conveyancing/disclosing-knowledge-knotweed-needs-be-more-transparent

I would get the knotweed professionally treated then you can answer the pre-contract queries truthfully, provide the guarantee provided by the professional company and avoid the risk of litigation against you should the knotweed reappear.

Good morning Wonky ((hugs)) and anyone else who's about

I woke several times during the night thinking 'have they thought of this, that and the other?' but have tried to convince myself that you and Lovely Hub are grown ups and can manage all these things - my role nowadays is simply to provide cake

Good luck

Now to read back on what went on yesterday ...

HELLO FORKERS!

Hello folks!  I'm back, covered in speckles of a lovely Hazy Heather-covered Hills sort of colour - emulsion so it should wash off - just had a Chinese takeaway and I'm about to fall asleep in front of Dr Who so I'm going to scrub the paint off in the morning

Wonky and her lovely hub are working too hard, but there's no choice if they're going to get things done in time.  Friends are continually popping round to help them and they've made a huge difference already.  The plumber/kitchen fitter is arriving on Monday to fit new sink and other units. 

I'll read back properly tomorrow, but just picked up on Liri's dilemma ((hugs)).
