So sorry Dove, I hope your mum just calmly accepts the situation as it is, hopefully she wont be too distressed. Your parents were married for the same length of time as mine...68 years.

Dad has been sorting through loads of papers, cards, newspaper cuttings, my mum kept everything ! 

I ordered the flowers today, sorted out some paper work, got the registrar sorted out, I seem to have been on the go for hours.

Steve, thank you for your post above and hoping you can get back to normal in time.

You are right about gardening though, I have found time to sow a few more seeds this afternoon, half hour in the greenhouse works wonders.

Thank you, I will do just that, I have a basket with holes in so will line it and plant shallow first tben down a bit.

Bit scared of the grass now, its a whopping clump now, about the size of a bucket! could it really pierce the liner

Verdun, thank you for your kind words about the funeral, did you go to Bodmin?

Thank you Verdun. It does seem to have only one shooty type bit though. Should I trim the roots or plant the lot. Never had a pond before I am complete novice.

Take care where you put the mouse traps

We had them in our garage, went on 2 weeks holiday came bacK to find they had chewed through the freezer cable, can you imagine the smell,  it had been full of meat.

Leadfarmer... that looks like a prison wall countdown, so you have caught 2 or 3 families of mice then.

Favourite biscuit?

Same here Gemma, ever since my primary school opened a tuck shop and we could buy 2 in a little packet.

I still have to seperate them and get the cream out first.

Up until then it was a paper bag of broken biscuits from the little co op round the corner.

Shame about your weather, I have been in the greenhouse sowing some seeds, lovely day but cold.
