Verdun - you're far too accommodating 

Think the hurricane's arriving on Monday/Tuesday lily but it's making a start here this morning! Glad you're feeling a bit better today.

My grass was cut about two weeks ago and it's been colder so I think I was lucky.It looks quite good - might not need any more done to it apart from collecting any leaves lying on it.

I think lots of things - not just plants - are dressed up to look like a bargain 

Pays to do a bit of research before buying anything these days. For plants - online nurseries as well as local nurseries and GCs.

Morning all. Wild and wet here - wind whistling . Big change from yesterday so I'm glad I got on outside when it was nice.

Lovely to 'see' you Bill - hope you and MrsB are doing ok  

I use a local garage as much as possible too Dove - these dealerships have you over a barrel sometimes. Had dreadful issues with a Honda one when I had my 4 wheel drive. Your doo-hickeys will turn up when you least expect them 

A day for catching up on indoor chores I think

Evening all. Dove - I can guarantee one thing - the thingummies will be in a safe place somewhere. That's where I put everything. 

Lesley - you're right about the man trap. In fact, now that you've called it that, I'll definitely have to fill it in...don't want to trap another one of those...

Enjoy your night out 

This is a 'two Stanley knife' household KEF - one in the house toolbox and one in the shed toolbox  

Leftover chicken for me, will do some veg and little potatoes, seen Scott and Bailey archie, so I'll need to see what else I've got recorded.

Never liked it pansyface, but only because it  didn't appeal to me.  

I must have led a more sheltered life than you - it never crossed my mind that it was dodgy till I was much older!

A photo would really help Rob - I meant to suggest that earlier 

It's much easier to make suggestions if there's a visual to work with, and you'll get lots more help and advice as people that way.

Lesley we seem to be managing to avoid the heavy showers completely here. My washing's dry and it's not been out long - it's very breezy. You could have sent it over 

Beautiful pic fidget - I like your new friend 

BL - you're a glutton for punishment - take it easy at daughter's and be a lady of leisure 

doc - hope all is ok.

More digging done - this  morning's haul has produced the biggest kerbstone/step and it was right in front of the back steps. I could dig the hole out a bit more and do one of those jungle traps with the spikes and cover it with a thin layer of twigs....

Lunch break and a catch up before I go back out.
