Nice argument Yvie.  I remember hearing about a woman in the midlands who wouldn't put anything into a lifeboat collection bucket saying 'I never go to the seaside for my holiday'.  

Oh Lizzie I missed your post about the poor cat too.  At least you did your best for it and it's no longer suffering.

Sorry you're not able to get to  grips with the garden Beaus. It will still be there waiting for you when you're up to it.  Sounds as though Mum is OK but it's her second fall in a couple of weeks  I'm going down a week on Wednesday so they are just going to have to wrap themselves in cotton wool till then.

KEF - I'm still catching up and saw your post about your Mum.  Love her expression 'stir fry'. My b.i.l's mother once bought a toy that need batteries so she asked in the shop for 'those Durex ones that last longer'.  Hope your OH's back gets better soon (probably not soon enough for you)  Try Fairy's plaster remedy.

That joke was pants Fairy  I thought you had been busy rather than ill or have I missed something?

Just had a call from my Dad to say that my Mum had a fall in the garden yesterday but fortunately she's only got a few grazes.  She was out deadheading the pansies I planted when I was last there - so it's my fault

Good morning all

Good to see you Stacey.  Glad your are improving and from the sound of your reading matter you will have a lovely garden next year

Hello Pauline

MrsG you are doing a great job in trying to get the best for your son. My fight for my son was about 28 years ago.  It's sad that things have not improved much in all that time.

I was a bit below par yesterday - much better today but I have a lot to catch up on.  Off for a look around.

Have a good day everyone

It's my birthday

I read that but it didn't register Dove.  I won't make my fortune as a proof-readerHope you get one.  We have a large plastic box on the path for the dog to get muddy feet washed in and when it fills up by itself we know how hard it's been raining. Simples

Good morning

Well done on your bronze medal for the quiz lizzie

Liri deserves a gold medal for being on her hands and knees out in the cold and wet weeding at daughter's house

Have a good day everyone.
