Had a pair of Jays in the garden today, they are very shy.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

I can speak for the young here... my stepson who is studying for a degree worked in Tesco for  the year that he was doing  work experience, ( he did do the work experience as well, in case anyone calls him a shirker) anyway, he didnt mind it at all, he welcomed the extra hours when it coming up to Christmas and when he left to go back to uni, they said he could come back anytime. 

My OH's half partner has a son who works in Tesco, he had been there quite a few years, quite happy there, he also has a son working in Lidl, they treat the staff so much better and have made the boy up to management position now.

These three boys are happy enough just to have a job, its not that hard work, not compared to their dads, humping ton slabs of granite around all day!

Maybe its because Launceston is a very poor area that these kids are happy to get a job. They hate being on the dole or scrounging.

I use Morrisons every week, the same people have been working there for as long as the shop has been open, some from when it was previously Safeways. They all are a very cheerful lot, if they didnt like it surely they wouldnt stay.

I used to breed those silkies in all of the colours, they make wonderful brooders, will sit on anyones eggs. Very placid and make good pets for children, (only if you are an experienced hen keeper, I must add)

You and me both SGL, as you know

He was probably paid handsomely for the use of his name on that. I dont suppose he has a clue whats in it. 

Or is that me being cynical, maybe he has took the time to mix his own compost for retail.

Well done, Johannele, focus on the good things, I have two lovely children, two little grandsons and two big grown up step grandsons. A lovely partner and live in a beautiful place. I have enough money to spend on food and the garden, I have some lovely internet friends, when you start thinking about it, I am sure there are as many good things as bad, if not more.

Plus, you are going to have a lovely holiday in England, by the time you have planned it all it will be time to pack.

Wintersong, if you can keep the packet to under 8cms high,  it costs 2.80 to post with the royal mail.  I havent checked courier services but I think they collect it from you.

Thats a bonus if like me you live miles from the post office.

 Our postman is very good, when he delivers mail he takes our post back with him.
