Hello all I'm home I had a lovely day  I'd have recognised M anywhere  and she said the same about me. Strangely enough, although we've not seen each other or been in touch our lives seem to have followed linked and intertwined paths and there have been some very coincidental coincidences  

A couple of glasses each of the white chilled stuff, a good three course lunch (well, no point in stinting ourselves, the weather's turned cooler) and about 3 hours of chatting later and we had to get our respective trains home again. We'll not leave it another 42 years before we meet up again

Well, I'd better find out what's been going on here ....

Good morning all

Temps yesterday were low - the highest it got up to all day was 5.1C and then only dropped to 4.3C overnight, where it remains this morning so far.

Today I'm off out on the train to meet up with someone I was at school with a very long time ago - we've not seen hide nor hair of each other since we were 20 so it should be interesting.

Is this rented property or are you selling it?  If selling then there are legal steps you have to take before removing any plants .

Just thought I'd mention it - don't want you to have any problems

If you don't want to ask them to change it, then I think I'd pot it on; plant it into a larger pot into some good compost and put it in a sheltered place for the winter.  The leaves may have picked up some bacterial lurgy this autumn (there's been a lot of 'em about) so when the leaves fall gather them up and burn them.  With some tlc it may well make a good recovery - if the new growth in the spring looks healthy then you can plant it out.

Lovely!  I have a very similar photo of my son at the same age in a very similar costume, resplendent with his grandmother's plastic parrot on his shoulder - he won first prize at the Silver Jubilee celebrations in our village and still regards himself as 'a pirate'

Verdun ((hugs)) glad no issues revealed at xray - and glad you're happier with the care she's getting.  My guess is that the staff are also happier with the change of management and are getting more job satisfaction too.

Sometimes we do have to chivvy friends, family and others about visits - don't know whether it's out of sight, out of mind, or whether there's a real diffidence about what they're going to find and how they're going to relate to the person in a different environment.  Usually they continue once the effort has been made and it's been positive on both sides. 

I'm finding that my parents can't cope with much more than one half hour visit twice a week, or three times at the most.
