Good morning Chap's and Chapess's

It has been raining solidly here for about 6 hours, I have been wanting to catch sight of some meteors since Monday but it has been cloudy every night. 

Went out for a Chinese last night for Mother-in-law's birthday, food was gorgeous and worth the £110...

Heads a bit groggy and not being able to cut the lawn is still driving me mad

I am currently going though £40 a month on bird feed, I seem to have Britain's entire population of chafinch's in my trees. I have an old pallet on the bank behind the kitchen that i put seed on at 6am and 5pm, along with seeded bread for the phesants and 2 bird feeders that again get filed at 6am and 5pm.

I don't mind feeding them but I would like it if they would eat less and not a kilo a day.

Good morning all,

Weather is absolutely atrocious and will be the whole weekend, which means I wont be cutting the grass tomorrow. The thing with me is, I have an OCD in regards to routines, I become very agitated and a complete arse, every thing has to be done at a set time and set duration, depending on task, i.e. Mowing the lawn Start time Sat 11:00 duration 1.5 hours. Cleaning mower Sat 12:30 duration 30 minutes.

This weekend will be the death of me, the past weekends for about 4 months Saturday has been dry, sunny or cloudy but always ideal conditions for grass cutting....... I'm going mad already and ranting thinking about it........ I NEED HELP!

Jean, I have done some research and I cannot see a lifespan. The plant that I had dug up was around the 10 year mark according to next door and its still growing in the places I have replanted after dividing.

Happy Birthday Geoff

Becks because of work dodging low life's, honest people like you and my sister made to suffer

J The scampers get all confused when you say "I don't have a PC" apparently every house hold in the world has one, even though i don't.

Lucky you Becks for the free food. Dinner for me last night was a BBQ meat feast pizza from Asda, while watching the Great British Bake Off.

That show is so bad ass i'm surprised they show it before the watershed

A couple of days ago I posted about a wascally wabbit that has been eating my sweet peas and i wanted to know what the benefits of having Buggs around, other than a good source of protein.

Yesterday arriving home from work i had found him dead in the garden, the cause of death is eluding me because of the lack of puncture wounds, blood and ripped out fur. A part of me is doesn't care that he's dead because of they way i have been brought up (Shooting and Ferreting) but the part will miss him.
