Morning bekkie and all.
Hope mr hog is happy soon.
Nice to see fidgeet home, but what a naughty mr Aussie .
yesterdays extra hour in bed ,in reality was an extra hour decorating - as now have a painted ceiling and a bit of wall. Slow business this lark!
bet someone else has sneaked in while I've been typing!

well the decorating hasn't happened! Ok maybe in man speak it has. Sanding down. Filling in. Blahdy blah! No paper on the walls though! Went to shop , amazingly we agreed on tiles, and also both agreed we hated them when we got them home! Now getting ready for meal out

Eat couch grass roots lirio? Really? No thanks!
Ps morning all.
Lots to catch up on so I have a rough idea but a bit overwhelmed by you chatterboxes!
I was convinced it was 8 not 9 am this morning until OH spoilt it by saying its Saturday not Sunday, got an extra day rather than an extra hour!
Decorating day has arrived so there will be rows chez the gardens.
Could try to prove I've read back, by commenting to everyone individually, but just gonna wish everyone well instead as a bit of a cop out (where did that phrase come from?).
Finger is much better, bends again, still black, still numb, nail not come off yet...
Have a good day!

Hmmm, not been in the garden for ages! Not keen on autumn in the garden ( that's got a ring to it), I feel im just delaying cutting and stripping everything back. Important jobs seem to have been missed - seed collecting, grass cutting, GH preparing, amelanchier still needs planting. All in all, I find autumn a bit overwhelming - how will there possibly be room for any growth or new stuff next year? Oh and when will I get time to get out there?

Dove, good points, id nit considered the children in need aspect.
Lesley and dove, a lot of what came out at the meetings was the same fights, concerns and problems as 20+ yearsago. One case was a wheelchair funded for school but not allowed at home or in the community.
Right, sorry folks, thisisagardeni g forum, not a place to air my views and opinions. I prefer to speak on here as i feel i know you all, raather than on pro lens thread which 'feels' more public. So sorry, ill get let you get back to garden topics. Thank you for your help,wishesand opinions . Xxx

Morning all.
P.doc - you are so right , society needs go change which means the authorities need to get their attitude right to enable that change, not rocket science but it does seem that way.
Kef - its a huge worry that children like mine rely on parents rather than society and laws to thrive, really feel strongly for those with uninformed parents and why should a parent need to have the skills of a doctor, a solicitor, a teacher, a speech therapist and many more...
Dove - it seems to be changing for the better but we will need go look back in a couple of generations before any real change is possible.
Lily - yet, bring it on!
