I see that bricklayers are getting paid £1000 for five days work in some places great work if you can get it. .....

I think Lavenderlass lives in the Mid Suffolk area - if brickies down that way were getting paid that much my ex would be a millionaire - and apparently he isn't

As Dave Morgan says, leave a few but not a thick layer.  Rake them away from any plants, but leave the rest for the worms to pull down into the soil

The fact that Chicky has woodburners probably means that they don't have to prioritise her repair

That's my guess.  Are they black inside?  If not I'd cook them and pop their little jackets off and eat them - they won't be poisonous.

I have the same condition - mine was also undiagnosed for years and years - my weight ballooned and I became very ill - it affected my career, I had erratic heartbeat, several joint injuries and has had permanent effects on me physically. Since being prescribed medication I've managed to lose a lot of weight and I'm more or less back to normal but as I said, there have been permanent changes.  

There's no way I'd go without my medication!  Just recently they tried a very small reduction in my dosage and within 6 weeks I was having joint and muscle pains and other symptoms.  They've put my dosage back up to what it was and I'm on calcium and Vit D to guard against osteoporosis which can be caused by a high dose of levothyroxine. 

Either Mick Hucknall doesn't have the condition very badly, or he's bonkers.  Untreated hypothyroidism can result in myxedema and loss of brain function!

If you click on it and then zoom you'll see there's quite a few little birds peeking out from between the branches

Good morning Ashdale

Did you blanch them before freezing?

Morning Panda

BTW I just read back - Chicky, that is appalling!  Borrow a baby from someone!  They have to prioritise babies (and they're less trouble than borrowing an Old, believe me!)/

Do you have FB or Twitter?  I think just the promise of a mention of their after-sales service would have them beating a path to your door!
