I am retired too...never worked so hard as lately.

What are you getting rid of...?

If I dig anything out, I dont think of it as dumped, just put back into the earth in a different form...compost.

I enjoyed the Norfolk one. Just goes to show what can be achieved without qualifications, degrees, letters after names etc.

I am not keen on her though, she likes you to know that she knows it all.

I wonder why people dont like cats in their gardens, if it was a fox you would probably be over the moon, every morning I am in my garden with the pooper scooper picking up the packet the fox has left, the pee doesnt smell that good either, or is it that they kill birds, has anyone heard the creams from a rabbit when the fox has got it, or watched one take a new born lamb.

wildlife is wildlife whatever it is,

Why should you be looking for 'faithful followers'!

You are some egotistical man Mike.

You are just another poster on a gardening website.

And as for sprays, I take it that spraying roses doesnt do any harm?

Another advantage of living in the country is that we have all the wildlife, birds bees, wasps, plus all the animals, fox, badger deer, snakes....

I love it when they are muck spreading.

My mum used to make a yorkshire pud with currants and sultanas beaten in, gorgeous with hot custard, in those days, anything that was filling and cheap was good.

I bought my afghan coat in Carnaby Street and when I got home my mum said she wasnt having it in the house because of the smell of it!

I still have a fur lined jacket with embroidery all over it that I bought in 1969 and I still wear it. I am now a born again hippy.

Verdun, do you feel like you are just on the edge of a steep slope, just about hanging on, and never knowing what will greet you each day?

Its a very strange feeling, but then I think that my mum must be  feeling much worse.

Dove, thank you for that link, I have made a note of it.

Thoughts and prayers with all who are suffering in whatever way.

Thank you Lesley for your kind thoughts.

Mum seems to be quite good really, they have both got over the chest infections, although mum is still 'chesty'but loose.

When we came back from the hospital they told us weeks, not months, we expected awful things to happen very quickly but she is eating well, she's a bit wobbly on her feet but thats because she sits all the time! Dad is doing well, he makes her tea and coffee, I do all the meals and the laundry and shopping.

We have the bedtime routine off to an art now, night bags on, change of clothes, done!


Last week I had a day out, it was nice to get away for a few hours.
