Evening lovely people. How strange that RB's post has gone. It must have been just after my last one last night, judging by fidget's one. 

Dove- you can't beat a pack of fruit pastilles in your bag to keep you happy...unless it's soft liquorice   Does Fed's wifey know he's with you? She's not a wumman to be trifled with apparently   How's the tennis going? Not heard anything on the radio or online headlines....

It looks splendid nut. A bit of clearing is very therapeutic too 

You'll be nice and cosy when winter hits 

Steve's friend's place sounds terrific too.

Hosta - I need wings 

and they can never be too big fidget... 

That's gorgeous, incidentally. Clever hubby. I may be slightly biased, but that's a lovely thing to have made

Morning all. 

RB - nothing more I can add to what's been said. I hope things are better for your son - and you - today. Who knows what goes through the minds of the people who use these poor dogs in this way, if they have minds at all. They seem to get off lightly every time. We're all thinking of you here  x

W'song - glad your son is ok too. I still believe most people are good and decent and I'd like to think I'd step in if someone was in real trouble, because one day it could be me or my children who need that help.

Off to work soon so will catch up with you all later

That's always a bonny look fidget 

We did that at school too - think it's why I still hate tights now!

Not sure I'm keen on gusset round the knees though

Maybe I'm just getting older W'song, and that makes me see it all differently. I think we often overlook what's close by - I certainly did in the past. Maybe it's just a yearning for life to be simpler -thank you for saying that though 

Not sure I'm always glass half full - I try to be - ask me on a day when I'm knackered and still two hours from the car, my feet are soaking from a bog, and my gusset's round my knees from the relentless rain...and you might get another answer....

W'song - I know it's a national pastime to complain about the British weather - I'm no different - but I'm so aware of what that weather does here in the west of Scotland. When I'm toiling up a hill, wondering why I'm doing it,  I stop and look round at the breathtaking glens, the majestic summits,  the burns crashing down the mountainside, and the rock scoured from centuries of that tumbling, freezing cold water, and I realise how grateful I am for all that b***y rain!   

I'm not ashamed to say I cry sometimes when I'm up there. It can be a very moving experience.

chicky - we've often had customers from the islands on the phone and the accent is very difficult! I suppose the Scandinavian influence is so strong there. They're all 'pining for the fjords' you know...  Funny how we can have beautiful beaches -  on the islands in particular- and stunning clear water like Verd gets - we just don't get to see it so often through the mist and rain  

Glad you're enjoying that programme Ggirl. The red squirrels are gorgeous aren't they? The pine martens are pretty amazing too. Thanks for the apple pie -just what I needed  

Glad I made you giggle Hosta. The quote from Griff is good though, and very accurate too!

I agree with you philippa. I don't think an excess (of planting) is more suitable somehow. Something simple which can be kept tidy without hours and hours of work, and allows people to see what's really important. Never has the phrase 'less is more' been more  appropriate I think.
