I didnt take the decorations down today, OH wants them left until after this weekend, my daughter SIL and 2 boys are coming for my birthday dinner, we are having the pork I didnt get round to cooking at Chrismas and still have some crackers left.

Talking of sorting out our mums stuff, I wouldnt know where to start, mine has loads of clothes, never worn, saving them she says! 

She had a nice new dressing for Christmas, she's saving it!.

My mum is worse than ever with her lungs full of fluid  she doesnt even need to cough,  she walks about 6 yards and is so breathless she just flops onto her bed or chair and has to wait till she can get her breath back, she doesnt want the doctor in, she thinks they will take her away, and if I am really honest, would she be better slipping away with lack of oxygen and pneumonia than waiting for the cancer to get a hold.?

She is eating well, small meals but 3 good ones a day, plus a big bowl of mixed fresh fruit lots of tea, coffee and chocolate. She will drink about 1·5lts of water as well.

If we could clear her lungs and IMO, although no expert, get some oxygen into her, she would feel a lot better. But is she happy as she is? I dont know, so is she best left? I dont know that either.

I do know that when I spoke to the doctor on the telephone in December, he said if I didnt report anything, they would treat it as a neglect case?

So, at the moment I am very torn between going over her head and calling him in, or just leaving her go. Found the perfect smilie here

RB it will always be 'our day'!

I also have flower seeds in two Roses choc tins and veg in a littld wooden box.

I will sort into Feb, March and April sowings.

I bought a pot of each basil and parsley in Lidls so am off to pot parsley in individual pots to grow on ready for Spring planting, I dont bother to sow parsley seeds any more, there are plenty enough plants in a pot for 89p, not worth bothering.

Dry here and mild, 7·6c lowest through the night and still the same.

Wintersong - I lived in Kent, near Tenterden for 7 years, absolutely beautiful, so many gardens and homes close by.

I have finally finished mulching the dahlias, not many weeds left, so today I am going through my seeds and put into sowing order, but first.

Yes but LYN we have to vent our spleen somewhere and at least it's harmless on here. 

I will remember that when 'my dear friend' is spouting a load of BS and saying nothing of interest.

I hate the word ISSUE applied to everything, such as health issue, grass issue etc.

I still wear a nylon padded parka type jacket with a fur trimmed hood that I bought for my son for school when he was 14, he will be 47 in Feb. And when that jacket has been washed it looks like new. After David left school my mum had it for dog walking, then it was passed back to me about 20 years ago, its never not took pride of place on the coat hooks.

I thought gardening was supposed to make people happier, according to uni surveys they are using it for therapy, there are some pretty miserable watsits on here today.
