I'd rather not go to bed, for me it's a waste of time when I could be doing something better. I read half the night, sometimes get up and make tea and toast, watch a film.

You get used to it. when my son in law was one night work, he would come home in the morning, go to bed a 7.30 he'd then be up again about 11am, coped quite well.

Hosta, young man, I dare say if you follow the counselling route you will be diagnosed as depressed and put on some tablets. Have you tried the Nightol yet. At least they are not prescription drugs.


Anyone else strapped for space?

Super job, how about a leg at each corner and just lay a sheet of ply on it. No fixings then you can remove it easily.

Lyn are you referring to my pompous verbosity - which I blame on the demon drink - or my gardening query?

I find bull s**t works well


As my gardening skills are better than my grasp of English grammar, I am definitely referring to you gardening query.

Does anyone else get annoyed when you here 2 times what's the matter with the word twice??

I could maybe get a bit annoyed when people don't know the difference between here and hear.

Language evolves. That includes,grammar,spelling,pronunciation,usage etc.

The more we are able to manipulate these, the more control we have over what is understood by the person with whom we are communicating. But this only works if that person has knowledge of the same rules and conventions (whether they choose to accept them or not).

lWhat matters should be what a person has,to say not how they say it, but this is rarely the case..

On a gardening note: is hobby-horse manure good for roses?

I find bull s**t works well.

to the previous poster who said a piece of wood 2x4 should be called 4 by 2, surely that should be 4 be 2?
