Fishy - I bought a packet of Harebells this year as I love seeing them on the hills in summer. I've got a good lot all growing away. 

If you'd like some, I'd be happy to send them to you. There's more than I'll ever use!

I'll see it on the review prog Dove. He looks like a lovely guy.

Evening all. A downpoury kind of day but at least it was slightly warmer.

Had to go to B&Q after work but older fairylet made dinner so that was a bonus. Did 'the lad' get beaten Dove? Not seen or heard yet. I'm making an assumption though  

He was so thrilled the other day, and his supporters too. It was a great match too, and a well deserved win. 

doc- it's such an unpleasant situation. Think you're handling it extremely well. If you get the jump on him by contacting the police first, it makes a big difference, especially if you 'keep the heid' ...

I now have a bed to sleep in  - may even sleep in it tonight! 

I'll have to rig up a curtain though. Don't want to frighten the natives...

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends - part 2

DD - I would have had a relatively good split from my husband. Unfortunately, the new partner decided HE was in charge and made things far more protracted and difficult than they would ever have been. In the end, it cost me a lot more financially, not to mention the stress involved being caught between a rock and a hard place all the time. 

I had a good family solicitor so there are some out there! I don't know if there's a similar structure in France regarding the different types of lawyer. It might be worth while writing down your thoughts about what you ultimately want, and how to go about getting it,  so that you can then make  a list of questions to ask your lawyer.   

Sadly, even the most reasonable people can end up 'fighting over the teaspoons'. 

Grass seed hasn't worked. What have I done wrong?

Hope you have better success this time ripply. Grass seed is usually fairly straightforward unless it's very dry after sowing and/or too cold. 

The module sowing is fine for a small area Michael - bit time consuming for doing a big area! 

Garden Pictures 2016

it's always good to see transformations  

I think my garden's quite different from three years ago! 

Took a  pic of a couple of grasses yesterday. Definitely a bit later this year, which I think is down to less rain than usual.

Morning all/afties Pat. Great photo!    Keep cosy

DD - glad you had a bit of respite, even if the aftermath wasn't so good. Love to you and Charlie xx

We've had less bother with slugs and snails this year chicky. Found a massive one on the back doorstep the other night though . Scissors were nearby...    Hope your Dad is  continuing to improve 

Cool again here. C'est la vie. Think June was our summer...

There's another chance for some furniture today Kitty  

Have a good day all

I know what you're saying Dave, but the difference between the forum and a client is that we don't pay for it! 

I'm not defending them as such, but I think there's not the time and resources to fix everything immediately, and the photo issue isn't  a priority unfortunately. 

I'm as frustrated with it as you are!

'Some' DR - most of my files are at least fifty photos!
