Hazel - I have reading glasses all over the house and a specially strong pair in my sewing box for doing embroidery and patchwork.
Pat - you're going to miss the cat!
Well done Hosta for sleep and inches loss. I like country verges to be a bit wild and have their Flanders poppies and ox-eyes and cow parsley but I keep the edge next to teh footpath mowed or we end up with no path. The council hasn't maintained the road edges further up and the grass has expanded so there are no more surface drains so water just runs down the road and then, in winter, freezes into a skating rink - all for the want of a bit of verge maintenance.
Item on Radio 4 news this morning about marauding cats - the domestic cat is no longer a detrmined, skillful predator and the stuff they kill in the UK is usually sick and not destined to live long anyway. Yes - someone has researched it. The trick is to keep domestic cats indoors at night so the nocturnal life can get on in peace.
I have to take OH to the station so he can have a farewell lunch with former colleagues and then he'll stay on to have a farewell dinner with an old friend and colleague from his golf club and need a lift hme from teh station. That leaves me in peace t do a last coat of paint on Possum's chairs and sort some more fabric.........
