Horses ploughing .....  kittens playing with knitting wool ....... the horses were my favourites 

Hmmm, embarrassing ........ couldn't get the car radio to accept me inputting the code (after Greenflag had done the fuse thing the other day) so I had to take it up to the garage, where their chap couldn't get it to work either ........... then the woman in the office came out and did it just like that (she's just bought a similar car).  No charge ......... bless 'em.

It's been one of those days so far .......... did my shopping - no Le Parfait jars but more due in any day so I'll pop down next week.  

Then because of the car's blown fuse the other day, the radio needed its code putting in again ... I'd got the code and the instructions .... could I get it to accept the code, could I heck   so I phoned the nice garage who look after my car and they said take it to them now, so I did.  

Oz sat down confidently in the seat and started pressing buttons ................................. half an hour later it was nearly done, but no matter how many times he tried the radio would not accept the last digit.  

We both read and re-read the instructions but no joy ... then a woman who worked in the office and had bought a similar model car just a couple of weeks ago came over and sorted it out ... bless her .... no charge for any of it.  

Think I'll put the kettle on ............. 

Just need to vent...

Slug & vine weevil nematodes

No such luck - the nematodes are specific to their 'prey'.

The shard of glass has been located  ............ after I'd checked and washed down every piece of equipment, plant pot, jar of chillies, precious pebbles with holes in and the usual detritus of my kitchen I found it ..... in the drain-hole of the little sink in the middle of the worktop .... why didn't I look there in the first place .... except now I have a tidy and sparkling kitchen  .... except for the floor which I've not washed ..... yet.

Now it's time for another 

and I'd better write a shopping list of essentials ........ coffee, loo rolls ..........

Blackbird nest not in a good place - what do I do?

Somewhere there's a mammal feeding its family .... just the way of things. 

Why have the bluetits attacked the wire of my nest cam?

Just because we provide them with 'ideal' nesting places, that doesn't remove their natural instinct which tells them to prepare the site.
