Thanks everyone   Mrs T - you have my sympathies

Still a bit dull here Alan - sunshine would be good.

OH is dealing with the tomato plants for me - Late Blight has set in so we're taking the toms off and getting rid of the plants.  When I say we I mean he   I've been sent indoors out of the way .............

HELLO FORKERS!

Do the bruises look like Heartsease Dove? 

Similar Fg, but without the charm

Pdoc ((hugs))

The Undergardener has removed all the toms from the vines and is now taking up the plants and puttinh them in the brown bin - probably not enough room so bin bags will have to be used. 

We have about two large buckets full of semi ripe and green toms - hopefully most will ripen - then as soon as this splint's off I'll be making chutney.

Please don't let me grow 30+ tomato plants next year

Good morning all

Verdun ((hugs))  - if a patient has a fall it will be because the hospital is at fault - that may affect how it is recorded   however it must be recorded correctly as it will inform her assessment for care both in and out of hospital.  Also it is quite likely that having fallen a patient will become agitated - inexperienced nurses can, in my experience, be quite frughtened if a patient with a diagnosis of dementia.  That is understandable - a friend of mine who is a Community Nurse had her nose broken by a confused 'little old lady'.  However in a hospital the support should be available to keep everyone safe - of course, that will have to be assessed for when staffing numbers are being budgeted for   So as I said, it's important that such things are properly recorded, not just in your mum's notes but on the ward records.

Tripped over my own foot and fell flat on my face on the terrace David   It could've been worse - I smashed my face and shoulder on some big flowerpots, but luckily I found the plastic ones and not the big terracotta ones - I could've lost my teeth!

Don't try to keep them - they just don't taste the same- if you can't pick and eat the same day then freeze them
