Good luck with the allotment Zoomer44. I thought I had to wait yrs and so didn't see the point in applying until last yr. Guess what? Phoned up- went to see it the next day and choose a half a plot got the keys there and then.
Yes No expert watching the robin is such a lovely sight. A pick up for me every morning is watching the squirrels and birds eating, playing in my garden-then comes the coffee!
Went to the allotment for the first time this yr. Not a soul in sight, enjoyed the birds tweeting breathed in the fresh air and did some weeding with the robin following me around. Lovely morning and now to the day job-housework!
Yes Star gaze lilly I agree-smack hand is in order, there all done.lol
Fab photo Bill. My in-laws live in Toronto, we had Christmas with them a few yrs ago-never ever have I seen so much snow and felt sooooooooo cold. Love the country and everything about Canada. Never ever will l go again in the winter. Perfect distance for a mother in law to live!
When the builders no longer whistle when you walk by!
When you keep getting those 'senior moments'
When you have to ask your teenager to help you with the 'self service' in the supermarket.
I agree whole heartedly with what's already been mentioned. Why should I have to clear up the revolting mess and endure the stench which makes me vomit left by neighbours cat? I've tried sprinkling chillie powder but again like everything only work for a bit and in this rain what's the point of sprinkling anything? Now they have discovered the driveway-it appears to me a non win situation where the cats are in the driving seats!
Stump removal people are rather expensive but worth it when it's not doable by your self. Recently on my allotment my neighbouring allotmenteer removed it for me. He is 80 with several health problems - I was so fearful that he may have a heart attack in the process. What a true gentleman and a dear friend now.
When you start taking about pension and your friends join in too, only to discover that due to wretched changes you have to wait at least another 10yrs!
Thanks BL- I can see where I went wrong they weren't dry enough and being in a cloth bag probably didn't help.
