Morning all. Cloud cover here just now so quite cool but pleasant after yesterday's heat. Woody that must have been a lovely garden yesterday -  especially pleasant when it was so hot. Cake's a bonus  Enjoy your cricket.

Work for me too Bev. Hope you have a good day although you'll be away by now.

Did your day go well Dove? Sorry I couldn't make it- I had a date with a man with a racquet.....

Good Evening FORKERS

Evening all. Tina-  nothing can upset me or faze me tonight as I'm on cloud nine! 

I treated myself to a glass of coke!

Not much done outside apart from some painting but I don't care- tomorrow is another day! Very hot here too so I was better off inside....

KEF- the guinea pig poo's very good for the compost heap I hear- I got some from a friend the other day to get mine started.

Bless him - he's made Scotland proud x

I need to lie down now.

Hi Maud- hope all is well with your Dad  Did your daughter enjoy her week up here?

Fidget I have lots to do outside but I want to watch the tennis and I'll feel guilty since it's now very sunny and I spent most of Friday watching it too when it was a nice day...what's a girl to do! That pavlova sounds gorgeous. Rasps are my favourite fruit- well maybe joint first with cherries. Dentist is probably a better career move- although I don't think i fancy poking around in people's mouths  An old neighbour of mine has a son who's hoping to compete in the Commonwealth games next year- athletics too. Nice for him if he makes it. Sport is very much his thing. My nephew did Sports Science at Uni and now lectures. It seems a good field to get in to.

fidget- think he's taking the **** 

I'm like you - can't do mussels etc- mainly because they don't agree with me. Love lobster, crab, crayfish, langoustines etc htough- I'm a cheap date 

Much as I hate the damage they do- I draw a line at the salt, or chopping them in half...

Just couldn't do it Chuck them as far as I can and that's often into the road- so at least they have a fighting chance!

Don't think my heart can take it Tina  I will have the phone nearby in case I need to dial 999!

Off to get screws etc. and get something done before the match.

Have a good day everyone. Sunscreen and shades if you go out!

Best of luck ddaisy. The chicken carcass thing is bizarre! What goes through some people's heads?? Ivy's quite tough and hard to kill so it may be fine as you say. The fish are another issue though. Horrible to think someone is taking/ harming them. It's the fact that they're coming into your property in the night or when you're out etc. Very worrying for you.

I can't believe people would be so unpleasant - but then again...nothing should surprise me about the human race any more. Let us know how your investigations go daydaisy. I hope you get to the bottom of it. Maybe you can get hold of a video type camera so that you can monitor the area - that might give you the answer. In fact- could you get hold of a fake one- like the burglar alarms- and make a show of putting it up? Perhaps that would be enough to deter the 'vandal' if that's what's happening

CCat we had a a neighbour years ago who didn't look after their  garden and the weeds were 6' tall - willow herb- (hence my ongoing hatred of it!). I was fed up keeping them at bay and when I started growing plants which slugs were attracted to  I took great delight in going out at night and lobbing the slugs over my garage roof into his garden. I daresay they did come back if they survived the Concorde style flight.....but it was very satisfying!!! I got quite good at it- not too many got impaled on the jaggy garage wall...

I do the same as you Steve with the huge snails I have here.
