July in the garden!!

Posted: 29/07/2012 at 23:15


Our cat went missing its now 5years we searched for her everywhere we live in an area with game keepers that notoriously don't like cats. I got my OH to ask if any of them had seen her but no. She was such a character she loved our boys she would hide behind the door in the morning crouched down wiggling her bottom ready to pounce as the boys walked into the kitchen she got them every time great hilarity every morning. We still talk about her. They are part of the family not just a pet. Sorry for your loss

I have a lovely golden thyme and the ordinary green thyme which I use in cooking. I cut some herbs the other day i used thyme,oregano,sage and rosemary put them in a mug chopped them up with scissors added some butter and combined it all and put it under the skin of the breast of the chicken we had for dinner. We had that with roasted veg it was yummy. Hope your not a vegetarian

My boys are 20 and 22 its a very different parenting by this time. I say we should have been warned about this stage not sleepless nights with teething and potty training! They dont need you unless they have a problem or need money!! They think they are all grown up but we know different and they treat you as if youve always been "old" and have never had a life. Our 20yr old is all loved up at the moment its pathetic and cute at the same time. Dont you just love them..

I think in us all we have an inner strenghth to get through the tough times.

You certainly have an interesting CV but I do appreciate the childcare costs. Have you not thought of doing childcare yourself?  We were trying to persuade my tough builder to trade brother to go into childcare what a laugh that would have been he just wasnt keen somehow

My mum and dad love their life. I am a home bird but even I would be tempted with their lifestyle. My dad has started another project today with raising the roof of his piggery to have a shed he can walk into. They've been there 7yrs now and are fluent in French just amazing. Luckily mum isnt bothered with the snakes unlike me!! your probably right they will be grass snakes. They tell me of something that is rat like but much much bigger I cant remember what they called it.

How long have you been out there

Sorry to hear that Geoff its a long day at work when your not happy.

My life is!! Monarch of the Glen I work with a daft game keeper too. We have red deer on the estate. I always appreciate where I live and work. We moved to the Glen 20years ago and while I was out one day the previous housekeeper called in and asked my OH if I would call her, I phoned that night and two years later I took over as the housekeeper myself. I work for a lovely family who are based in London this house is their holiday home! I do appreciate that I love my job I think it would be a miserable existence not to.

Kate,  what seasoning do you use I must say I much prefer homemade as you know whats in them that would have been horrible to find bits of bones.

The world is so small now with skype, email and mobile phones we should be alright but this is a young man we're talking about hes warned me now he wont be good at keeping in touch. I might say if on the 25th of every month he has to make the effort, well I can hope

Neighbour watered the lawn?? you have some neighbours down there!!!
