Aaaw - you lot just made me feel much better about my mucky old floor - must be because we're all gardeners and traipse mud in & out all the time that we can turn a blind eye to a bit of muck! When you all come over for tea I'll be much more relaxed knowing we have similar housekeeping standards.
Wonky - love the sound of your cat cave - my boy would like one of those. When we first got him he was a timid, frightened little thing and I had to make him a hidey box. It was just a supermarket cardboard box with some bedding in but with all the sides taped up leaving just a tiny entrance hole.
As he got to know us he gradually ate his way out of the box by chewing away lumps of the cardboard. Eventually there was only the base left - but it was still his 'safe' place to go and sit when he was stressed or frightened. I don't know if he realised he was really just sitting on a square of cardboard on the floor but it helped him cope.
Got to love 'em - I thought he was out in the cold and rain - just came upstairs to find him curled up on the bed
Fairy - thank you for the link to the walkers' forum you put on here for Hosta. Had a look at it and there was a link to 2 programmes on BBC Scotland (The Adventure Programme?) about driving / walking /cycling the less travelled roads through the highlands. We really enjoyed watching them and they've given us some good ideas for holidays. OH now even more determined to have a camper van though....
Well done Verdun on your dealings at GC - go on - don't keep us in suspenders over your plant purchases though....
