I'm sure it'll get sorted David - let's not get downhearted - have you got any photos of autumn colour you could put on Happy Marion's thread?  I've put a rather mediocre photo of my lovely hostas on there - I love how they look when they're turning colour

Chortle - that's the day I used to start - the day after my ex wedding anniversary!  But decoratiions didn't go up until after son's birthday on the 22nd December - which made it all a bit of a rush

It looks as if either the previous receptionist wasn't told about his/her duties, or they were not as conscientious as you are Nora - unless the plant is of deep sentimental significance to one of the company directors (perhaps bequeathed to him by a great aunt who also left him all her money or something similar) then I suggest  it is ditched and something more suitable for the situation should be purchased to give you a fair chance of fulfilling your role satisfactorily.  

If is is of sentimental significance to one of the directors then I suggest he takes it home and looks after it himself

Nut - don't think your elderly - no, OH agrees with me.  

How do we define age?  I suppose I'm middle-aged - what comes next? late middle aged, then I suppose old, and after old comes elderly, then the very elderly and the frail elderly and then the geriatric - what's next ..........................

Hi David - when I log on I too am taken to page 19 and have to navigate with the arrow - there are several threads where I have to do this, but it doesn't cause much of a problem.  I've never not been able to do it whether I'm on my laptop, OH's laptop or my phone.  

Have the techie team not been able to pinpoint the problem?

Our bluetits, robins and blackbirds scour the garden every spring looking for caterpillars to rear their chicks with.
