Edd , I think Chicky was referring to her own colleagues who are supposed to be doing a 5-day week 9-5.

I had a colleague like that - we'd get emails sent at 2.30 on a Sunday morning etc - and he'd wonder why he didn't get an almost immediate reply 

Doing that sort of thing can make life awkward for colleagues - bosses sometimes expect it from everyone 

Enjoy your trip to the coast - my job sometimes took me to the North Norfolk coast - I know lots of car parks with sea views where you can eat a sandwich

Oh well, Many Happy Returns to anyone and everyone - and cake's always a good idea, birthday or not .......... we should have it every day .............. just in case.............

That reminds me, have I mentioned that I've lost 6lbs since I retired, without even trying - going to work was obviously very bad for me

Fidget I don't think the conifers distract from the new bed, you just see the lovely plants.

And it's a good excuse to let the ivy grow

Good morning all   Heavy rain overnight but temp only down to 3.3C

It doesn't look as if it's going to be a gardening day - more planning maybe?

As for when's the pond happening?  There's loads of tree roots down there and I have some other gardening jobs for OH, so I might co-opt the builder (when he comes to plaster the hall ceiling and decorate etc!) to dig a hole - he'll do anything for cake!
