the "treatment" I'd give it would be: leave alone until it starts growing in spring, then mow it regularly.
No need to over complicate things.

I have 2 x 250l water butts standing side by side on " the allotment" They're both full of rainwater but not connected to any downpipe.
I've not had to water anything since June.
We gardeners are never happy, are we?

am I the only person who loves the sneaky bonus crop of spuds in the compost bin?

Only 6 deliveries ( including going back to one because something was missing)
I was just leaving a customer and heading back to the van when the most almighty hail shower started, with such force it set off car alarms.

for the tiny amount of cooked food we don't eat, mine goes in the compost bin.

Now , boys and girls. There is method in my madness.
I have to submit a written request if I want more than 2 weeks consecutive holiday. What do I want in January 2019? 4 weeks holiday!!
" Well you can't say I'm not flexible ,and I always try to go the extra mile when I'm asked in to work at short notice"
See what I'm doing ? Will it work??

just had a phone call:
" any chance you could deliver in the morning?"
Why have I said yes?
I wish we had a decent "Chinese" near us.

I wonder if those going against the wishes of the deceased are so keen to refuse an inheritance from them?

" I don’t think the hospitals will be running a free cremation service,😀"
My understanding is, and I might well be wrong, they take / use what they want and after a period of time, cremate what's left and give " the remains" back to the family.

Punkdoc, they can help themselves to anything they want when I'm dead.
I'll be dead, I'll have no more need of them.
My children have been informed that my body will be going to medicine / science when I go and they're fine with it. It also saves them the cost of a funeral
Raining here now and lots more forecast for the day. I think I'll be cleaning out the woodburner and then spending the day in the tunnel.

Morning Pat. I'd happily have your 34C and you can have our 9C OK?

damp and grey , but no frost.
I can see a dusting of snow on Dartmoor. I wonder if Lyn has any.

Rain last night at 7ish froze horribly later in the night which left beautiful patterns on the conservatory roof. All gone now .
BOTH my daughters are coming for a visit in early Feb.
No1 daughter is off to South America for 3 months in February and is coming for a few days after we get back from The Gambia so No2 daughter is coming down to join her . They've not been here together for 5 years.

ditto to Rothko. I wept when I first saw them.
There are so many painting I love. There are some artists of phenomenal talent, eg Gainsborough, who paint stuff I just don't like. Technically stunning, I just don't like the images. Is that odd?
I think I'm the only person who doesn't really get Turner. I remember going to the opening of the Clore Gallery at the Tate in the late 80s expecting to be "wowed", and I kinda just wasn't.
I loved the Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijsmusueum in Amsterdam although, until I'd seem them " in the flesh" I'd not given them much thought.
I loved the Bridget Riley exhibition at the Tate a few years back

Lots of charity shops here. Barclays closed about 6 months ago. Nat West is going soon. I'm with HSBC but, to be honest, I've not crossed the threshold in about 2 years.
No betting shops, shoe shops , coffee shops nor eastern European grocers.

Hurrah for John Lewis.
My damaged case is no longer available to replace under warranty, so they're sending the nearest newer model ( which is larger )and there's a "price match" offer on it so they're sending £34 back to my credit card.

We too watched Blue Planet and Jumbo. Taped Marigold to watch in peace , without adverts.
With a bried trip into the sitting room to stick some wood in the burner, it would appear I slept for almost 11 hours last night.
Bunged up still, but no coughing .
