Dear Mole family

I fear it’s time we had a heart to heart chat about your ever-increasing houses on my humble garden. May I suggest that to accommodate your ever-growing family that you relocate to a more des res? How does the famous football pitch nearby sounds to you? Did I see your boys wearing blue?  Or perhaps the world-renowned garden with its exotic flowers is more to your liking, by the way how are you sense for smell these days? I do recall on my recent visit to the garden a few tell tell signs of building works in progress-perhaps you have relatives there already.

Incidentally how was the coffee morning? Did you enjoy the coffee that my mischievous teenager poured down your drive, or the chillies powder to make you sneeze? Oh dear I do apologies but boys will be boys.

Seriously though with all the tunnelling going on, I think it could be put to better use. How about challenging you energy to create a tunnel linking Heathrow to Gatwick?

M25 family would be so relieved as they need all the help they can get to get thinks moving- me too so I can get to work on time.

So finally, our love hate relationship has to end for the sake of the lawn, buttercups, daisy, and dandelion families.

Yours truly,

Weyplotter xx

Punkdoc I'm sure you were totally brilliant at your job and gave everything- sadly the profession wants even more and I know just how you feel as it takes everything out of you. I'm in total admiration for ITU staff, a lot of my friends are in that field not for me - far too technical for my liking.

My in laws-both retired medics-paediatrician and chest physician thank God my husband had the sense not to follow in their footsteps. None of my family are or will be nurses-one is enough!

I'm looking forward to retiring and intend NEVER to work but like you will miss my mates.

Chris-still practising my bedside manner 3 x a week, laying my healing hands, wiping the fevered brows etc. However when off duty- I'm afraid its 'self service' in my household!! LOL

Morning All

Steve they are lovely. Your work reminds me walking through the cemetery on way to school. I used to be so scared and we would run so quickly-in case anyone came out of their graves! LOL

Tootles-deliver anger mgt courses to our inmates-obviously doesn't work as they come back in again.

After a hard day all is forgotten by going to my plot (oasis) just me, birds and bees-follower allotmenteer keeps bees, delicious honey-yum yum yum.

What a lovely interesting thread. I feel privileged in knowing a bit about yourself and having you as friends.

Me too a nurse! Trained and worked in London teaching hospitals and posh private ones as surgical nurse. Moved to Surrey 18yrs ago for a better life and fresh air, well actually a garden!  Still nursing, in a secure establishment now, always interested in high profile cases. Love my work, enjoy helping people who have lost their way in life. However looking forward to early retirement end of the yr to pursue my passion for gardening.

Married to an accountant-who loves figures and me can't even add up! Gardening budget is always overspent-a bit like the NHS. LOL

Two things that I have no idea about!

Hi Loganberry

I would keep the horse manure in a strong garden rubbish bag tied and leave it in the garden. You can keep the coffee grounds in a tight plastic container and use it as needed-do you have a composter? I put mine in there.


Happy gardening.

Thanks Dove. The other day I spent ages removing the water so the BB wouldn't be so water logged. A good 'workout' but pretty pointless exercise as here we go again RAIN RAIN RAIN! You have given me hope so lets see what happens.

At least we not in Somerset- my heart goes out them.

When do slugs wake up?

I have read somewhere that used coffee bean also kills slug-but it may also kill off the plants! Not tried it yet but will as haven't seen many slugs lurking around.
