I have ivy and dont want to get rid of it.  My house was origianally part of a large estate and there were a number of large trees too near the house.  The previous owner cut the trees down but left the trunk on one in the middle of the garden.  It is now covered in ivy.  It is home to loads of birds, insects, squirrels and the bees adore it.  As its in the middle of the garden its easy to keep in check.  It acts as a motorway service area for lots and lots of wildlife.

I think you would need to load up a photo before anyone can really help.

A Day Out

A little while ago someone posted a link to a malware and ad protection link.  I used it and have had no advertisements since.  I would certainly follow that up PF, anything unusual happening online makes you a bit nervous so I think it would put your mind at rest to have it checked out.

You're right Bekkie, back is a bit stiff this morning but Ive taken a couple of painkillers, had a nice cup of black coffee and when Ive eaten my scrambled eggs Ill be ready to face the day.  Mind you Ive been thinking its Sunday for the last hour, then realised I hadnt heard the church bells.  Lovely morning even though its a bit blustery.  I suppose its gearing up for hurricane bertha or whatever its called.  Must check everythign is staked and secure in the garden today.

Mornin, sorry I slept in.  Am I too late for breakfast, Id love some of those scrambled eggs with chives.  You lot were a bit noisy last night had a bit of trouble dropping off.  My sleeping bag was warm but that floor was a bit hard.  Am I the last down or is there still someone asleep.

Sorry folks, but I think Ive had too much pinot.  I'm off for a lie down.  See you in the morning, not too early mind.
