Good morning Wonky   Hang on in there ((hugs))

Monty's Hedging

Posted: 17/10/2015 at 07:39

Depends which way they face - tall hedges on the north or north-eastern side wouldn't shade a border. 

I believe that over the past year even Monty has reduced the height of some of his hedging and even removed some to allow more light into the garden.

Big dead tree

Our healthy ash tree is still dark green - the unhealthy one is more brown than yellow

Good morning all G'day Pat

Fingers very crossed that DD gets better news today ((hugs))

Trying to stay awake here 'cos I'll have to pick OH up from the station in about half an hour so I thought I'd noodle on here with you lot while I watch HIGNFY.

Jo, I think Wonky might need a bandage after

 The flat is lovely - they've been with that landlord for a long while now and they know not to have great expectations - it will all get done eventually but he is quite 'economical' so tradesmen don't give his work priority

Big dead tree

If it falls to the north a neighbour won't have a garage left.

If it falls to the east it will fall on a neighbouring house.

If it falls to the west  it will fall on our house.

If it falls to the south it will be falling uphill ... think that's unlikely

It's going to cost £500 to have it taken down, taken away and get the stump ground out.  It's a big tree

Right - Fairy's envelope is in the postbox - definitely!  I've filled the car with petrol so I can pick OH up from the station this evening ... and the toast that I've just made to test out the new toaster has no calories whatsoever - how can it have?  It's just a trial run

It's my birthday

 Hope you had a brilliant birthday Lulu

Oooh  'eck!!!  The other day I told Fairy her envelope was in the post - I thought it was - I'd walked down to the post box and posted several envelopes, but .................... when I unpacked my shopping just now from my big bag guess what I found

SORRY FAIRY!!!!!!!!!!!  I'll post it this afternoon - promise!!!  but I've missed today's collection

On the plus side - at last I've bought a new toaster - hope OH likes it - in the end I went for a two slot Dualit (cream colour).  I'm fed up with buying cheapies that die just after the guarantee runs out.  I got this one from John Lewis so it's got a 2 year guarantee so fingers crossed.
