Oh no. A white van man missed me by a centimetre which is no fun when the roads are full of potholes. He thought it funny when i swore at him.

Spent yesterday potting up seedlings and pottering in the garden. It was so hot in the greenhouse i was actually sweating, had forgotten what that was. Tomato and chilli plants looking good.

Just reading the rants about cyclists. I am a cyclist and have got knocked off twice in the last 6 years. 1st was a car driver not looking when he opened the car door. I managed not to hit car door with front wheel but ended up having a major op on my shoulder where i had torn muscle and rotator cuff off of the bone. Very painful and a very long recovery. All the driver said was oh sorry dear i didnt see you. Second time was by a cyclist coming out of a no cycling alley way. Yet another trip to hospital, luckily nothing broken but very shaken and bruising that didnt help the arthritis in my spine.

There has been countless near misses all by drivers that think its funny to drive so close to you and then overtake and stop in front. There are many good drivers but perhaps they should ride a bike and see what its like from this side.

On a lighter note i hope you all had a good easter and managed to get some gardening done

What's the weather like in your area?

I love your cat Sue, is it a british Blue? i have one he is totally mad and lives in his own little world. Tends to bully my smaller female cat and gets very jealous when i pay her and her brother any attention. His best place is in the bathroom sink, usually when im cleaning my teeth. Very helpful

Congratulations Tattiana, i celebrated my 25th earlier this month not bad as some people who shall remain nameless said it wouldnt last. Brighter today but need to go into town. Taught myself to knit over the winter and i keep getting asked to make things for people.

The people that live at the back of us keep chickens and the mouse problem has got worse since their arrival (the chickens not the people) Have gone 2 days and no mice. I used to look after my mums dog when she was at work and the dog used to go in th garden and eat the cat pooh. She really wasnt fussy he favourite was foxs followed by horses. Think i would rather cope with the mice. Off into town today and as its market day the loonies will be out. Wish me luck.

Hoping the chap that owns the place will have some idea where she can stay.
