These posts are giving me a much needed laugh. I've got such an angry face just now since being on my soapbox earlier. Just as well I'm not coming - I'd scare you all away  

Would probably do that anyway .....

Positive thoughts and silly things for the tough times

Pentillie - many of us here share your thoughts and understand your sadness, even if we don't come from your beautiful part of the country. It's heartbreaking to see the devastation in the south west at the moment, and it shouldn't be happening. I won't say any more, it's making me very  angry just now. 

I can think of a few candidates for a Tiddy Oggy right now.

KEF - that is the trouble with Friday appointments - buck passing at its finest  

David get angry with those t***s and hope this might cheer you a teeny, tiny bit.

Which Lutyens bench to buy??

Any Lutyens bench will be a delight rubber. A timeless classic.

What a talented, clever man Ned Lutyens was.

Clari - looking forward to the pix 

I miss my 4x4. Sis and BIL have just bought a new one. Will start saving again once my building work's done. Which one are you getting Clari?

Dove - is it a couple of telephone masts that are attached to the shoulders of the jacket?

Been busy cleaning floors and second lot of washing will soon be done, so then I can go out. No doubt it will cloud over and rain when I do!

I thought you were suggesting I have a cold shower to calm  myself down David ! 

Old Herbaceous Border

If it's not a huge area Fran, or if you have enough help, could you lift the plants when the weather's suitable and keep them in a temporary  'holding' area? You can then attack the ground elder and any other weeds more easily, tidy up and nourish the border, and then divide and sort your plants before putting  them back.

Matty, my deepest sympathies. Know what you're going through.

We're here for support when you need it. Think you probably know that already.

If anyone's got the radio on - tune into Radio 2 and Jeremy Vine's show. Guess what they're talking about? Perhaps their ears were burning after my earlier rant....

I can send you some crampons and an ice axe Dove
