tumblr's a forum as well - my daughter uses it all the time. I thought that's what you meant! 

It's my birthday

Happy belated birthday Philippa - although I think I sent a message on the forkers thread yesterday. Nice to have it on the 'official' thread though  

 I think Verd's started this 'cos he's hoping for extra prezzies when it's his birthday....

Well - what a mess you lot left for me and my fairy really won't do you know. Finger wagging smiley needed here.. 

Glad you all had a nice time - sorry I couldn't join you but I'm a real lightweight - I struggle after about half nine...

Sun is out here although there's  a few threatening looking clouds so I'll get something done outdoors - grass cut anyway - in case Hurricane Bodiddly strikes tomorrow 

Been on Runnybeak's 'trip to Bakewell' thread where pansyface has had a very strange and worrying experience. 

A Day Out

Did you have to resort to spelling it fuschia David? You see that all the time!

I don't want to mention names but last year there was an ongoing 'saga' by someone who had issues with a neighbour, and many of those posts were directly abusive yet they weren't removed until reported to the mods. We're all aware of the return of another troublemaker at the same time as all that nonsense but, again, his posts remained until it all came to a  head. 

A Day Out

How very strange pf. As Dove said - if you didn't press submit, how can it be deleted by anyone else? There's been some very dubious posts on here in the past which have been left until reported to the mods etc before being deleted but that's a different scenario altogether. Perhaps you should contact Daniel directly about it and see if he can shed some light?

Bee/Butterfly friendly flowers, but space efficient. :)

Don't forget to go vertical - I've got Cotoneaster - you can have it against a wall  or fence so it takes very little room. Mine are smothered with bees and then you have the berries for birds later on. I also have some dwarf ones  in large 'window boxes' on top of one of the fences. If you have a wall or fence you could have some troughs on it full of herbs as Bamboogie suggests - thyme will grow particularly well in that situation -  and I've also got nasturtiums in pots (and the boxes) which the bees are enjoying. They're dead easy

pf- which post was deleted? I can still see the one  where you said 'water bailiffs might come..' etc. Is that the one you meant?

They're adults David, and should respect your neatness. Nothing wrong with that ! 

Verd - did you know everyone's appearing at yours tonight? Have you got any doughnuts in?

David - I agree totally with Dove. If the subject doesn't come up till they raise it, then let it lie. If they mention it again, just say quite openly  'I assumed you were kidding as you must know I wouldn't allow dogs in my home'.  I don't dislike dogs, but I wouldn't want one staying in my house - the 'aroma' as you delicately put it! I'm sure you can carry off the 'old codger' very well...
