Fidget, one of the things I love about my OH is his superb tidying ability - he can create a mess, but when he's tidying he's TIDYING - he seems to enjoy it


Topbird that sounds wonderful - you're really not missing anything here - grey, misty and drippy


Hosta - footballers' salaries are obscene.

The weather is really wet and soggy out there, but there's a buff-tailed bumble bee buzzing about in the flowers of Clematis cirr Freckles which is covered in blooms.

Thanks Lesley - as you say, at least the shoulder was ok - that's cheered me up even if the cough came back

I STILL HAVE A BOTTLE OF GRAVY BROWING THAT BELONGED TO MY MUM. AS SHE ONLY EVER USED A TINY BIT AT A TIME AND THE BOTTLE, ALTHOUGH DRIED UP, IS ALMOST FULL I CAN ONLY THINK THAT SHE BOUGHT IT IN THE 1960s.


.......

 Pansyface - I have a similar bottle - every so often I add some boiling water from the kettle and give it a few shakes which makes it useable - it'll certainly last me out - Wonky will inherit it
