I wish I could help you as well, I know a bit about how you must be feeling. At least I have both my parents under the same roof as me. My washing machine is on everyday, most times twice, never ending round of sheets and underwear. The days when they are cantankarous are the worst, sounds like your dad is doing that now! I am sure you are feeling very frustrated, thats how I feel, if only they would be advised.

I am able to get out in the garden for brief spells, if you can just try to overlook the work out side, and I do know that is hard, but everything will sort itself out eventually.

Do you have anyone who might rake the leaves for you,  my daughter is coming up this Saturday to help.

My daughter left one in the loft last year, it grew a long stalk and frightened the life out of her when she went up there.

Although I am busy because it all falls to me, I, like Lesley am really glad I am an only child. When my OH's mum was ill in hospital they all had to ring each other everytime one wanted to do anything. 

If anything was bought they all felt they had to chip in, I was used to buying a present and giving it without other people wanting to give me 2.00 towards it. Maybe I just dont understand how big families work, that's what my OH said.

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

Susan, did I send you white foxglove seeds, I still have some left.

We had the annual huge cloud of starlings come this weekend, they have always arrived at the end of September before, fortunately they by passed us and went the farm along the road. 

I love to see the formation of them sweeping in, then change direction.

I dont mind feeding a few, they dont stay for long.

I have some tomato feed with sea weed extract, would that do. Usually I just chuck on a pile of homemade compost?
