Love the pussycats.

 Hubby is allergic to cats so we won't be getting one, but I would love a dog.

I think we will be  car hunting on Saturday. It looks like it will be written off. The bill for fixing it is over ten grand.  The rear end would have to be totally rebuilt, and one of the seats replaced, apparently it has anti whiplash, which has to be then replaced for the next time!!!

 Better that than an ambulance and hospital.

His laptop is slightly bent but still working.  If someone was in the back, I guess they might be bruised but OK.

 We will be getting another Volvo tank.

The dreaded moss

Posted: 01/12/2016 at 20:36

If it is in shade, it will get moss. My lawn is moss for most of the winter due to shade. I lose it in summer. I scarify in May if I remember.

I'd get a qualified sparky in, better safe than sorry.

If the frost has not got them, you may as well enjoy the flowers. I cut back in Spring where necessary.

Healthy Eating

I started down the route of avoiding additives when I found that Smokey Bacon crisps make my joints swell. I can eat plain salted. I avoid buffets where everything is dipped in bright orange breadcrumbs.

The other problem with soya is that most of it is GM modified so they  can use glyphosate before harvesting to clear the weeds.  There is some residual in the soya beans, and it is suspected to be a hormone disrupter, which could lead to cancer in susceptible people. Soya is in lots of things, even bread, where it is said to be an "improver".

OMG Clari. You need a labrador to throw on the bed and keep Reggie company, (and the bed warm)  I got up early, the house cold, I put the heating on and I am sat in front of a gas fire with a cup of coffee.

When will your heating be sorted? I had my boiler changed in the summer. It was a days job, and is now due its three month check up/ adjustments if necessary. We also changed the kitchen radiators, the extension is a cold little box and needed something bigger.

Will you be on Grand Designs or is it more  the £100k challenge?
