Mike also stop making references to Orchid Lady in your posts. Having met her I know your references and comments addressed to her are not welcome   Neither is the promise of a signed copy of your first book LOL   

Pauline this is the first time I've seen a need for a block but yes a very good suggestion

Hi Gg hope you are okay and not still upset  Thanks for tip off about GBGR, sorry I don't have Sky and can't advise you.

Morning Pdoc  that situation isn't good  and I don't mean the lack of Christmas prep.

Good morning from lazybones I didn't wake until 8.15, maybe my body is doing a self preservation act as it's SM with mum day 


Clari hope you aren't very poorly.

Gg don't feel scared Dove's idea is a good one, if the neighbour decided to shout at the pallets rather than come around and talk to you I think he's already decided not to approach you  obviously knew you'd hear him and he's now made his point.  

Lesley I threw the very fine stuff but saved the thicker reel it might come in handy... so I've de-cluttered mother's and brought it here 

Lily enjoy the sea. 

Wrong coal?

Lily P I used to have a Parkray and had the same trouble with anthracite it was more like BBQ charcoal than the coke we usually had.  It also smelled unpleasant outside when lit.

I would still contact the new supplier and ask them to take it away, they can re-bag so they know how much to take away. If they won't do that could you try mixing it with some of what you usually use and see if it stays in.  I think I was told that the height of my chimney as it was a bungalow was inadequate and anthracite needed more air. That might have been a load of rubbish to fob me off.

Love Monkey puzzle trees but no way in my garden. Along with Pampas the Sumach also got well and truly dug out by OH no suckers after 14 months  But I am watching

Gran don't stress Yvie is lovely and I'm sure if she was upset she would PM you. We all post things and then reconsider but are then too late to edit if someone else posts.  

After recent stuffs  I type mine, read it back and decide if I should press the post button and I still put my foot in it

I had a pink pampas grass   until last summer when OH attacked it and dug the lot out. Didn't plant it until 2002 so maybe I was late at swinging 

Pdoc thanks  I think the cold sweat is due to all the Christmas shoppers sucking up all the O2.  Pleased you liked the cartoon of me it was done years ago when I briefly worked for a circus and helped train lions 

A nice morning was had visiting OH's family  Trimming up at mum's  why did we still have two bobbins of thread used for fly fishing hidden on the bureau shelf ?  Dad has been dead 10 yrs. Maybe because the drawer it was in is now full of carp    I can feel a cold sweat coming on 

Have a good evening all
