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.

Oh dear Haisie.  Should have said 18.00 hours cutoff for Evening thread. I'm still in the olden days.  Me does think you are pulling my leg though.

Well, all I can say is don't let it drag on like I did.  I don't know what they have done but I could have saved myself a lot of anguish if I had spoken up earlier and believe me I am no wilting flower!!  Not bolshi, don't like confrontation, who does, but will stand up for myself.  Hate apathy.  I understand it is difficult when it's a neighbour as you don't want any ill feeling but, let's face it, they aren't bothered about you are they. I will politely pass the time of day with mine, but will never enter into another conversation with them.  They showed their true colours.

Right, now for the adjoining neighbour and the faulty guttering!!  It's a hard life.

Oh yes, and you have to watch that Kef.  Sensible!!  In your dreams Kef.

Are you sure you don't live up the road to me Haisie?  My torturer is a sausage dog and, yes, he set all the others dogs off too. Not that his owner admits it.  Said it barks at the foxes!  Oh, yes, there's a lots and lots of them hanging round the garden - not.  I did contact the Council and was told I could make a formal complaint, anonimously if I wished, but decided to do it in, what I thought, was a friendly manner.  I only wish I had done it sooner.  May not be on such friendly terms now but I don't have to have any contact with them anyway. The longer you put up with it, the worse it's going to be to bring it to your neighbour's attention. 

Think about it.

Fairygirl is great, as they all are.  You will have to view Morning Forkers, early morning until 6, then Good Evening Forkers. If you post after the allotted time, you get a detention. Sometimes gets very crowded in that room!  Some lose track of time.

Yapping dog. Blighted my summers for the past 3+ years. Yapped early morning, all day long and at night. Decided when they were on holiday and peace reigned and I was calm, to write a very polite, friendly letter expressing my distress.  2 days after they returned, owner pounded on my door, bit like using a battering ram, admonished me for spoiling his holiday, etc, etc.  Kept my cool then told him didn't like the look on his face, nor his tone of  voice.  Said he had had no other complaints, which I quite believe as people are apathetic and don't want to rock the boat.  I, of course, have heard many neighbours complaining.  Said he couldn't possibly stop him yapping, and blamed all the other dogs in the neighbourhood as dog was talking to them!!  Anyway, not sure what's happened but since that day - 2 weeks now - you can hear a pin drop.  I have been able to work and sit in the garden in total peace and quiet, apart from the usual kiddies playing, which I have no problem with whatsoever.  Rather like it.  I am, at the moment, very happy, apart from the fact that not once did my neighbour apologise to me fo the distress I had been caused. It was all me, me and his poor wife. 

Now, are you still awake Haisie.  Bit boring really but you did ask.

How long have you got Haisie as it's been going on for 4 years.    Do you have trouble getting off to sleep as I'm sure that once I start, you will be soundo!!

Oops, here comes that nasty Fairygirl with a gag. (Not a funny one at that)

You'll be OK with me Haisie as I just pretend I'm a gardener, so that these nice people chat to me.  May have to fill you in on the yapping dog.  That's the initiation process.

Note to self.  Must try to ask some intelligent questions..

I could offer no advice Hover, unlike the other pleasant posters and am so glad you feel able to return.  I have to say it's really good to hear that someone so young has an interest in gardening.  I think we all agree that it is very theraputic, even when we are cursing that we wished we had never started certain jobs.

Hope to hear more from you. Keep coming back.

Trust you FG to get in first.
