Maud.. it is working you have to mix 1 teaspoon of clear honey dissovoled in hot water then add 1 desert spoon of cider vinegar and stir.. it tasts like hot lemsip with the the lemon.. keep off citrus fruits/foods and foods with critic acid in. and dairy products they aggrevate it.. eat chicken, turkey all fish and shell fish and lamb or veal only.. no other red meats or old meat..stay away from tomotoes at all times. and sugar it all acid that builds up and makes it worse.. use wholemeal flour and bread and i use "pure" butters they are good and skimmed milk or oat milk.. lovely with porridge.. which is also very good.

i take cod livery oil and omega 3. and vitamin c as not citrus allowed..

the book i got told about by my specialist is called "treating arthritis the drug free way" by Margaret Hills.. new edition out august htis year. she suffered and was near crippled by 36 years old and told never dance or cycle again.. she did this progarmme inthe books for 12 motnhs and has not looked back has some meal menus in there.. must take calcium supplement to replace lack of dairy. arthritis is caused by diet.. to much acid in the body.. so have to remove it..

do epsom slat baths or soaks.. these are very good.. do my hands in in for 15 mins in as hot as you can stand water and one cupful of the salts.. stretch and nbend the fingers etc for 15 mins.. then wrap in warm towel for 5 mins. do same for feet.. the bath is for whole body one bath hot water and 4 cupfuls of epsom salts.. for 20 mins.. get into a warm bed do not get cold.. do this 3 tims  a week.. it is so good..

at first i thought so much hard work.. but it is sooo worht it to be in less pain..

@sotongeoff.. many thanks for the info.. i will know how to amend if i suddenly see it did it wrong.

i agree with you maud.. i love reading it too and everyone is welcome.. whether beginner or fully experienced poster.. it is good to hear others views and see others gardens (thats my fav bit)  i have learnt lost os little things since being on here and it is great to share what little i have with others..

like for instance i am doing this new diet for my rhuematiod arthritis.. cyder vinegar and honey wiht cup hot water 3 times a day and it is working i can move fingers much easier than i ever have in the last few years.. no red meat except lamb (yum) and loss of fish and no dairy.. it is working and i have lost 1/2 stone since  starting last week.

I have been using laurels for my hedging.. they grow quite fast and can be trimmed to any size you want.. i saw it at Osbourne House they had it as a floating hedge. will try and find the photo.. it look amasing.. all the main big branches were on show.. and also they had it against a wall in the same manner.

today it has been heavy showers and rain.. many rainbows this morning which is delightful am going out to move plants that have been waiting for weeks as the ground was so hard wihtout rain since 4th august. (well anything that was worth calling rain that is). and pricking out seedlings of primulas and perennials.

Water butts are now full and ready for watering them all.

Best wishes goes out to all of those who are suffereing these terrible floods.. i thank god that we are on top of a cliff and dont suffer them.. but down in Lake (ha ha) it does flood and becomes like its name.

My Daughter keeps harpin gon about "just like the start of "2012" film mum.. its not going to get better.. it is getting closer.. much as i love her dearly sometimes i could just slap her for her silly nonsense talk.
