Oh Rosa....wish I could advise but have never owned a pet.


I had a half-wild half-Persian cat as a child but in those days you didn't go to vets and anyway someone stole her which was tough to deal with at age of 10.

Chorus....we want to see your farmous, Liz or something similar perhaps to be on the safe side

Somewhat off thread but as I have treated myself to a subscription of GW this year when do I get the first one? Am waiting patiently or impatiently actually

Geoff, have just looked at Liz's profile (hope she doesn't mind) and yes she lives in the Dordogne but the hoot is that her neighbourhood is Tower Hamlets (London) How on earth has that happened?

Chris, I moved in a year ago last October (ie 2011!).....but had a lot of clearing away of junk to be done...shed dismantled and repositioned.....friends and relations to sell as much smaller house etc. Don't get me wrong I am very happy here but it has all taken a lot of time and energy and no help from my two sons to boot! Saying that I have learnt not to expect anything any more and then one isn't disappointed

Geoff, is that Liz's home? I have just been looking at her photos, too.

Also, many thanks for the compliment - don't get many of those nowadays 

I have even managed with a considerable amount of umming and arring to scan a photo for a friend and send it to him!

Jo, am sitting her chuckling to myself but I do agree with your advice so many thanks for that.

The photo I scanned was this friend dressed as a sheik or shake as I had a big rock and role party a while a ago. His reply was 'are you sure it isn't Lawrence of Arabia' and I replied 'but he is deaded I think'. That was what the Goons used to say wasn't it?

Jo4eyes and lovetogarden, miserable day here, too. Fortunately didn't need to go out in it for once but tomorrow I do need to venture forth....hopefully a bit better by then!

As I have a newish garden which needs planning at least with my laptop downstairs (in the warm) I can gaze out and get ideas despite the weather! I am wondering if I should actually make a plan of the present layout and take it from there. Any ideas peeps?
