Useless ideas and inventions

Totally agree about the gym equipment. Gym Membership is also totally useless, the minute I join I seem to stop going and end up paying a fortune for something I dont use.

Hi eve ryone, Took my cold to Worcester to look after grandchildren (now I know where I got it from).  Back home now.  Have an obelisk and two planters to put together over the weekend, or should I say hubby has. 

I think I've decided to put Foxgloves 'pink sensation', Verbena 'plum magic' and a White cosmos that has a pink centre (can't remember the name) in the planters. Saw this at RHS Hampton court and want to achieve something similar.

Today I took a parcel in for a neighbour and the delivery man said he would put a card through my neighbours door asking them to collect the parcel from me.  A teenage girl who lives at the address has just popped round to give me the card because it had been delivered to the wrong address.  I kid you not, it took me a full 5 minutes to explain to the girl why the card had been pushed through her letterbox and she still looked as it she was stealing the package as she went out through the door.  Is it me?

An open note to all Shops big and small,

I agree, I broke my ankle a couple of years ago and had to have a wheelchair.  Not only was it a nightmare having to negotiate overcrowded shops (the whole of The Range became silent following my scream of pain when hubby cracked my ankle on a particularly awkward stack of items whilst cornering) but I also became enranged when a shop assistant asked hubby if his wife would like a bag for her goods (I did tell her that I had only broken my ankle when I fell downstairs and not become deaf and dumb at the same time).

I've just bought a large packet of chocolate buttons to make me and my cold feel better.  It has a resealable strip across the top.  Now who thought that resealing chocolate was a good idea.  In my view its as useless as a wine bottle that you can recork.  Does anyone else know of any more useless ideas/inventions.

Oh can I put the man that does the voiceover for Wickes in please.  The was he says 'Wickes' just drives me crazy.

And those weathergirls who do stupid hand movements.  The are reporting on the weather not taking part in a ballet. 

Oh dear.  I think feeling under the weather has made me more mardy than usual.

Sorry RB  no room for Carol Klein, I'm giving her a reprieve.  Anyone with that much passion for gardening has to be given a second chance.

The way I feel today I'd quite like to put all scientist in room 101.  Why can they send  a man to the moon yet not manage a cure for the common cold.

Can anyone identify this weed?

I'd agree on the japanese anemone.  It's a nightmare if it likes the growing conditions.  Still trying to get rid of mine but if I only leave a small piece of root it starts again. Haven't put any weedkiller on it yet.

Wild night, and not in a good way, everything seems OK in the garden though.  Feeling really c**p this morning.  Sore throat, aching and very tired.  Luckily I have nothing particular to do today apart from catching up on the washing.  Should be on Nanna duty tomorrow, hope I feel better.

Keep safe everyone.
