Positive thoughts and silly things for the tough times

Posted: 21/01/2015 at 09:33

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.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

The doctor didnt come. Theres no point in me phoning the surgery because it want registered as a visit, he was going to pop in on his day off. Apparantly he works somewhere else Tuesday and Wednesday.

Cant see much point anyway, her urine this morning looks to have lots of blood in it, could be just an infection, but I think this is probably it.

I would rather she goes with a chest infection, so probably best left.

I can phone the district nurse if she is in psin but so far says she isnt and to be honest, the fight is going out of me now, whats the point in rowing with someone, I cantbtake take that.

I was so annoyed with the News this morning,  new blood tests to detect heart attacks, then in the next item, NHS is so stretched there is not enough care to round, so lets preserve everyone so they can live to be 100, but dont ask for care because you wont get, we are too stretched.

Sorry, rant over, time for coffee. But thank you all for the love you have shown me.

Our snow has all gone, we only had a smattering, its poured with rain all day. I would love a real snow storm.

On the butter debate, I dont eat bread or butter at all and buy Anchor Light for OH sandwiches, Always cook with RapeSeed oil.

Well done Matty, do take care though, its very cold out.

Nerines wont grow here out in the garden. They like dry, and we dont do dry in Devon! They are in pots and spend most of the year in the greenhouse, only coming out when the buds are up. I probably pamper them too much but it works for me and its what dad has done here for years, even then, he didnt put them out at all, just brought them into the conservatory so mum could see them.

Last year I split them up and got about a 100 little ones, all coming on nicely now, I dont know how long it will be before they flower.

Would you pay more for a pint of Milk ?

Hosta, I have just sent you a PM if your around at all.

Waitrose is too far for me, I have to use lidl or Morrison, I have no idea what their codes of practice are. Their fresh meat and fish counters have nice food, apart from that, I dont know.

My daughter always uses her local butcher, his meat is lovely and his wife makes pies and pasties and sausages with meat in them!

My brother in law has an organic farm in a tiny village in Devon, they have about 10 milkers and sell the milk privately, his wife does the milk round, the only problem is that they dont have a skimmer and I only buy skimmed milk.

They also sell a few veg from the van or an honesty stall. Very hard way to make a living though, being so small.

If you hold your mouse or finger on the product in the posters picture above,  the info will say, 'search google for this image' click that and the company selling them will be there, I assumed as the poster found that picture, he must have seen the selling site.
