I'm thinking of writing to all car manufacturers doc - to ask them when they stopped putting them on cars....

No sunglasses needed here Verd  

Garden's still in one piece Lesley - hopefully it'll blow itself out before it reaches the east side!

Gro-sure compost, any good?

I expect the 'feed' element might be compromised a bit -  I'm assuming they've added something extra to it? It would be fine as a mulch or for general use in a border or pot for bulking up, but  I doubt it would be worth it for flowers, fruit and veg next year.

Morning all.  Love to Mr chicky today, all fingers and toes are crossed, and hope the results are good for you Hosta. 

Bushman - sorry you're feeling so down, but your friends are here to give you support, and hopefully cheer you up a little 

W'song - have you tried stuffing your bag with newspaper to absorb the wet? Just keep changing it. Works well with walking boots or they take forever.

fidget - it's unbelievable isn't it? Don't get me started on the cars with no indicators jo ..... it's all me, me , me  

Rather a hellish day here today. The little birds will struggle to get to the feeders in the wind. I watched a little coal tit yesterday happily sitting in the cage, picking out his favourite bits to eat and chucking the rest to the ground. He must feel quite secure

Evening all. Just an update as I've collected all the forum donations now and will send them off this week, as I'm very aware that I've got cheques which were sent over two weeks ago, and don't want anyone getting a surprise when they're cashed!

I still have some cash to be handed in but I'll send it separately when I receive it. 


The current total is therefore  £399 which I'll round up to £400. Of that total, £274 came from you smashingy, smashing forum friends  

Bless you all. Pudsey thanks you from the bottom of his heart xxx

I use multi purpose too but I often add some grit  to keep the drainage sharp

Oh how I miss my heated seats fidget, especially after a long walk on a cold day - or even a summer day...

Jo - aw shucks

RB - I think you'll find the pansies are planted underneath the narcissus.... 

Gorgeous pix Kathy. Great to still have so much colour when the Mahonias are coming into flower too!  I love Fuchsia Hawkshead - don't like the usual bright, half hardy ones , but that's one I've always admired. Should have got it for my shady border

Oooh yes - good luck Hosta 

Made me laugh jo - my last car had such a complicated system for changing the clock that even the dealerships couldn't do it. No idea why it couldn't do it automatically like my present one does, especially as it was an expensive vehicle  

I've PMd you jo

Hello lovely people 

Tops down and off, broken bra straps ...thought I'd wandered into a Carry On film set.... 

So much to catch up on and I don't know where to start, but chicky - love to you and Mr chicky xxx

We're all thinking of you and we're here for you as always   I've just read that Bob Mortimer has had a triple bypass in the last few days - he's a couple of years younger than me - and seems to be fine.

LP - don't these 'mothers' drive you mental with their inconsiderate behaviour. You should have had it towed...

W'song - bags and ovens... 

Verdun, re hospitals- it's getting worse isn't it? Did you have doughnuts at Mickey Dees to help with the stress?

Not been Lesley.   

I've adapted my 'washing up sponge' slightly by using one of those sticky bandages to hold it in place, instead of tape. Works a treat 

That's a real pain with your foot - no pun intended. As long as you have a remedy in the meantime it's not so bad though. 

Off to salt mine now. Catch you all later. Have a good day all
