mummy.. LOL.. not at your theft form your property.. but the horn.. it is terrible that your things can be taken and yet the police dont really care.. they go through the motions and that is it really.. lik ewhen we had a brick through the office window.. missed my daughter then 7 my inches.. and the came round took brick away for finger printing..ha ha.. hopefully you are right on their demise when trying to use it. duno what this country is coming too.. got worse over last 5 years.

i will get him a horn.. thought about air horn you can get also.  they are so rude.. it is a cycle path and the signs say that walkers must make way for cyclists.. and respect each other on the track.. do they ever.. the dog owners where i lice think the rule the roost.. the parks the pathways.. the roads everywhere.. and they think they dont have to pick up after their dogs also.. lovely coastal path splatterd with mess.. disgusting.

Mummy.. it is a nightmre.. they dont understand that 1 week out of every 4 we NEED choc!!!.. dunno why but it is the only time i need it and i dont have them anymore! but its still there. and it is the only time i buy chocolate and we have it in the house.. so weird..

but my O/H has learnt not to touch it.. ever!!!! some years ago when i flipped my lid and threw all his fishing maggots out of the garge fridge for the birds.. never done it since. ha ha

and to you who came back from cornwall.. cant remember who.. and cant find way to go back when i am writing in the box to check on who said what, is there a way.. if so please tell me.. yes i did feel good about it.. after the guilt had worn off.. which didn't take long 

rant today is about the blerdy extendable dog leads.. wish owners would real them in when a cyclist goes past.,. one took out my little lad last night.. didnt i ahve a go at them.. he rang his bell several times coming up behind them from some distance as i tell him to.. to give people time to move etc... they turned and were aware of us.. so no excuse.. but did nothing about it.. and i couldnt get him to stop in time.. as yelling at him.. STOP! now. but ya know how they are. dont listen to ya.

Spring Time

Posted: 22/04/2013 at 09:56

lovely george... i agree.. i love spring time the most in the gardening calendar.. as you say lighter mornings and evening to potter out in the garden.. and the sense of new life as we plant our summer bedding plants.. and pot up our cuttings from the winter as they start to grow.. the smell of cut grass to me signifies the start of spring..  it is the time when everyone is happy so true.. the first days of warm sunshine and the sound of birds singing.. and the spring flowering plants bringing such bright and colourful colour into our lives after the dark, damp, cold winter.

i suffer hayfever but it doesnt stop me being in the garden.. i just plant more plants that are bee pollinated nad not wind

this last week has been glorious weather and today it was very warm by 8.30am.. so be off in while to do some more.. sod the housework.. now is the time to be out in the fresh air and the calm and tranquility of the garden


enjoy yourselves everyone.

@ frank.. great story.. thats what i needed back then.. love it

@gg.. yes so was i.. but i had had enough of the damage by the end of the week... and i knew going to report it would get me i had no "hard" evidience to show it was them... so with my patience at the end of its tether i did it.. i will say i did not feel good doing it.. but sometimes needs must..

@mummy.. my driving bugs are those too and people who drive so close to you.. i hate my space being invaded.. the roundabouts.. ah yes.. those.. over hear it is terrible,had  to rant out window while hand on the horn.. other day to a guy who was stopped letting al the cars from his left go out,nearly causing an accident with traffic coming from the opposite junction.. idots!! and those that dont indicate yes, and those that pull out infront of me...causing slamming on of brakes.. when there is nothing behind me.. and proceed to drive at 30 in a 60 limit!

my hubby says if the driver in front is wearing a flat cap beware ad be ready

i remember some years back now.. i had a little fiat panda.. an dthe people who lived down the road to me would park their cars in such a way.. no one else who lived along there could park.. and then when the others members came home.. they would go and and have a move about and you got two more cars in!!!! so i thought one day.. sod this!!! i am going to get my car in there.

after about 5mins i had it in.. with inches to spare front and back.. the guys in the garage opposite all applauded when i got out.. which was great.. i did feel pretty pleased with myself..the nieighbours were not amused at all.. and the next morning i went out my back wiper and offside wing mirror were broken off.. and this damage continued for a week.. until i thought enough is enough.. so i went out late one night and did same damage to their cars.. and  i never had a problem again from them.. and they stopped hoggin the street to.

not that i recommend this sort of behaviour of course but my grandad said sometimes with people you hve to treat like for like to make your point!
