Sounds great to me Nut, Thanks.

The white sage is a little more delicate here. It will need to be over wintered in a greenhouse or collect the seeds. Its from south America and its the type the native Indians use for their rituals. I make smudge sticks out of it. 

I had the same problem with Bells of Ireland last couple of times but mine have come up in a matter of a couple of days.

They are packed and ready to go for you 

What has happened???

I had Glandular fever then they found the onset of Meningitis. I was diagnosed with it within 2 weeks and thats how its been ever since. I dont complain about it, I sometimes need to explain to people why I cant do certain things or why I need to sleep. Thats why I went self employed, I tried going back to work but they said i was a liability working with horses, so, I applied for loads of jobs and they kept saying yes until I told them about my condition. I gave up and started my own. I do not bad but can be hard for me as well as family and friends. My OH, Rab, gets quite upset when he sees me at my worst. Think he had more of a fright than anything. I couldnt get myself to my feet after a fall in the house and spilt hot soup all over me. Life is good though, dont get me wrong 

I live it to the best I can

Thankyou Winter. It is hard and I know that if I do something it floors me for days. Its the cold that hurts the most as my muscles deteriorate a fair bit in the winter so I try and keep as active as I can. Im lucky in the sense mine comes and goes but when its here, my business comes to a standstill and I sleep and rest. I know that my OH finds it hard to understand but hes getting better with me. It sounds as though you give him alot of support. Much respect to you for that. When Im bad, I have uncontrollable shaking down the right hand side, if I fall, people just think Im a drunk or Im on drugs. It can be hard but I have some great friends and mass support from OH and family

Chicky..I must confess...I have one too  I have everything in it but have only started it this year.

Fig, I was thinking more of a flame thrower lol

Pennine, you cant do wee faces can you lol Im the same on my phone. I was diagnosed with the ME 7 years ago. Spent the first two years on crutches. I dont give up. I do all my garden myself and run my own business...ride my bike and motorcycle when I can and much more. My doc says Im an inspiration to others who give up with it.

I am very headstrong when it comes to it. However, it came out of remission 3 months ago but think its on its way back into remission again. All good. Life is too short for things to pull you down Winky face smiley
