As Fairygirl said, have had an ongoing problem with neighbour's dog for nigh on 4 years.  Did contact Environmental Dept at Council and first time was told to keep a log, but that was easier said than done.  Phoned again a few weeks back and could have made a formal complaint, anonymously if I wanted, but decided to try and deal with it myself.  Didn't confront them as I was sort of aware of what the reaction could be but wrote a very polite letter, starting by apologising for having to do so.  Outcome wasn't too good, but the dog has stopped.  3 weeks now and it's bliss.  So Diddy, don't leave things to fester.  Deal with it now otherwise it will make your life unbearable.

Morning all.

Thanks everyone for your good wishes.  Did mention to grandson last night that maybe it's twins (not) and he said he would be moving back in with me! 

Chicky just seen your Mum's calligraphy. What a lovely find and how true the words are.  Wished I had heeded such advice first time round.  Would have saved me a lot of distress. Have nothing like that I'm afraid but know there's lots of bits and bobs in my loft that I want to have a look at.  Need to have someone here when I go up there though as I have been known to do a 'Me Tarzen, you Jane' act trying to hang on to the edge of the loft trap when ladders fell over.  Now have proper loft ladders.  Was quite a fall!! Should add that I left OH in the loft!  Wondered where he had got to.

Anyway, going to try and keep mind occupied so about to paint my nails as, if I get to see babe today, don't want him/her thinking I don't look my best.

Good Evening FORKERS

Tomorrow Fidget. DIL due in hospital at 8.30 and is third on the list, barring emergencies.  Might get to see her/him depending on time babe delivered. 

I'll let you off of detention.

That's why  I got rid of mine Gardengirl.  So spiteful.  Seemed like a good idea when I first planted it.  Cats used to love it.

Thanks Chicky.  Just have to hope that all the 'this could happen, that could happen' prove to be wrong.  I do find these days that the young mums time is often spoilt with all these possible scenarios.  Bring back the trumpet I say!  You may be too young to know what I'm talking about. 

Those toms look delish Blackest.  Good photography too, not that I know much. Looks like it has been set for someone to paint.  Very nice.

Oh dear. First detention Haisie. I'm exempt.

Evening. Think I'm talking to myself.

Sorry Bev. Have been spreading myself about and being a bit vocal.  Did pm you the other day.  Used to visit Eastbourne a lot when I was younger.  Don't know if it's changed but it always had such beautifully kept gardens and there was the bandstand! Sat on many occasions listening to the bands with the 'oldies',

Verdun, there's nothing wrong with my bellows. It's the strutting that's getting a bit difficult.  Can't seem to control the zimmer frame.

Well, got the requested muslins for DIL and a few other bits and pieces.  Have sussed out where I want to shop and have my eye on some lovely little dresses and sweet cardis with rosebuds and bows on them, frilly tights, etc.  I bet it turns out to be a boy! DIL goes in tomorrow at 8.30 so it will be all systems go.

Best get washing as it's getting dark.

No Haisie.  If I was, I might make a lot of money. 4th grandchild.  Didn't expect any more but son and new wifey obviouly thought it a good idea, even though their own sons are 18+ and 14.  But............this babe is not going to change their lives and they are already talking about doing some coastal drive in USA next year!! And, no, Grandma will not be looking after him or her.

Always a bit quiet on here during the day at this time of the year.  I am usually last as lots of the others are far more industrious or have to go to work.  I'm a Lazy Mary.  Still in nightclothes as I've been faffing around on this laptop again.  Think I will now have to change my plans and go out later this afternoon. Story of my life.

Thanks MrsG.  Keep looking at the baby clothes!  Found some pretty little dresses but wonder whether they will put her, if it's a her, in them.  Daughter bought them a Guns and Roses Tshirt and the babe will be wearing it whatever it is!!  It's light brown too.

Morning everyone.  Been on a brain holiday.

I have to say I was pleased to hear the news Blackest. It's inhumane what is happening, but we can't police them all.  I certainly don't know what the answer is.

Glad you've found this motley bunch Haisie.  They will make you most welcome. Several jokers.  Not all sensible and serious minded like moi.

Done lots in the garden and now have loads of stuff to get rid of.  Might smoke neighbours out but might be kind and just keep filling the bins.  Depends on whether they upset me or not.  Got paper for printer now so, neighbours beware!

Going to pop to Mothercare, etc, this morning to get some things for new babe which arrives tomorrow.  Am hoping for a girl as there are far too many of those nasty boys around.  You know, the ones that pick their noses and scratch in certain parts.  Little girls don't do that. 

Having great trouble with my internet at moment and was told this morning that I had been hacked and if I pay money, it will be sorted out.  Told chap I would get my son to speak to him later.  Not quite so stupid as I may sound. 

Well, everyone have a good day. Sun's shining here.  Hope everyone else has the same.
