Runny glad it just wasn't me. I thought after 10 yrs I'd moved on but I felt so angry. Was even worse because it followed the news about lack of care in NH /EMI units that had already got me going.  

p.s on a lighter note the refuse collectors have missed Mum's re-cycling bin again, so another phone call made, and one due tomoz' since the coporate complaint I put in that would be addressed in 20 days ( in writing)  has now got to 31 days  Not life threating but so blinking annoying.

DD not a huge cake fan but banana sounds

BM I missed the fact that you are moving would be great to see pics of your new garden

Lesley don't think I can raise a smile today, still wet miserable and cold & weather is the same.

Thrown my clothes out and will wear my parka all winter  inside and out

Woody won't be long before I go back to bed, hate days like this  Best have my meal first

Claire, not "met you " before so don't know what has happened in your family but send best wishes and I'm sure you'll find support on this thread.

Fishy glad to hear that MrsF is home, even if in discomfort, no place like home x

Lyn imagine you are still "shellshocked" about diagnosis love to you.

I watched a prog' last night where Ian Botham aired his views about his father and his last days in a home having dementia, an "empty shell" my ar*e !! I was so angry and upset about his cowards way out about not visiting I didn't sleep well and cried in the night.  Don't wish dementia on anyone but let's hope if he develops it his kids decide to visit him and make sure he is cared for and offer him some love and kind words even if he no longer recognises them.

Glad your OH is on his way home Lizzie

Archie, bit of tough luck they are having, hope your manflu is better

Hope all goes well Verdun.

Filthy day here so I'm going to get rid of clothes that I've been hoarding, feel like throwing the lot away.

Love lemion drizzle cake Dove .. Think the damp has go tot you

Soz bit slow on uptake about bikes

Old farts want lights that aren't millions of tidgy things on miles of white string and do alter functions but are big enough to see on an 8' tree...and do subtle not mind blowing twinkles and flashes & match a bronze themed tree with green wiring not white or black  ...not asking for much really

MrsGarden have you remembered to take a cutting from your Brugmansia ? I have mine in a jam jar on kitchen windowsill.

Panda offer beer to man with lift home.

Pdoc I thought McQueen rode the motorbike & Newman the pushbike

I'm singing (thankfully in my head) Neil Sedaka Laughter in the rain...wonder if Oh wants to hold hands and walk down the garden

Potted version  Been to GC.

Got tree lights. Seems they don't make lights that old farts like

Got garlic both hard neck varieties:

Carcassonne Wight strong & vigorous

Lautrec Wight creamy & smooth

Peas Hurst Green Shaft

Climbing French beans Blue Lake.

I bought something ( in EEC approved packets...panic not folks ) that is described as Marrow / Squash / Courgette called Gemma from Crete, picture looks like a little fat round courgette. Plus some bush beans that look like borlotti beans also called Gemma  My Greek isn't great but I think I've sussed Gemma is the trade name. Will have fun next summer.

Still damp / rain & miserable here.
