    Will be a wonderful betterment for Jean’s eyesight – and thinking of you both this morning Dix.

    Must say I agree with Cilla – and think Nature must be thoroughly sick of homo sapiens, it’s over-breeding and it’s obsession with profit causing so much damage. But even so, I’d be very sorry indeed if anyone I know got into Her way when She’s on a rampage.

    Have bookmarked this website, Jane. Thankyou. Will have a thorough look at it when I get back. With winter closing in, it’s more difficult to avoid boredom which is the enemy of the ageing woman.

    • Don’t I know it and that’s why I have a stack of unread books piling up. Have you read ‘His Bloody Project’ – last year’s Man Booker? I’ll send it if you like.

    I suppose the nursery has to be open for parents going to work. Must say I’m glad I had children when women mostly managed to stay at home while they were very young. How many hours today without a cup of tea?

    Celebrations are taking place on Saturday. My brother and wife will be up, and he and various members of my family will be meeting Duncan’s partner and the infant there for the first time. Am preparing a buffet for the get-together to keep their strength up, while they wander from room to room admiring the carpentry and the quality of the…[Read more]

    Felt my gut twisting with nasty envy as I read that your garden is up-to-date. Mine is a disaster area, needing days and days of work – but I might get out there now if the rain stays off for a bit. Also wondering if I can start a course on Future Learn – but nothing tickling my fancy yet. Don’t work too hard Jane – it’s only money.

    Good morning Karen and Jane – was awakened by the wind about 3am (felt like a cissie!) – but it’s a good deal quieter now than it was then. I haven’t heard anything blowing about, and alas! there was no reverberating crash from the cherry tree, so it lives to torment me for a further day. Have been awake ever since, and am practically ready to…[Read more]

    • Morning Sheila :-) glad to hear you’re safe but not so about that tree! That Pay Back list was a brilliant idea and I will remember it if I get tangled in anything similar. Have a great day – let’s hope celebrations are very soon.

    Due to weight gain since giving up smoking, I think I can give the lead boots a bodyswerve, Jenn – but thanks for the thought. Will be a truly terrible wind if it can lift me off my feet.

    Good morning Tony – hope all your allotment constructions are safe – fingers crossed for you.

    Good morning again to you both – have been away stripping bed, loading WM and generally preparing to turn the mattress when daughter arrives. It’s a brilliant mattress, but so heavy and thick it’s impossible to handle alone. as you can guess, I have a whole list of jobs for her to work her way through when she arrives. It’s payback time.

    Good morning Cilla and Jane – will not be indoors until this afternoon, when hopefully my daughter will return one set of my ladders from the renovation site so that we can replace the defunct fire alarms, and the ceiling spotlights in the gloomy bathroom where there is only one light still working. Also want her to intercede with the Sky website…[Read more]

    Sounds a bit like a full-body MOT, Karen – so I do hope you prove roadworthy. You must have a fair idea yourself of how your shoulder is progressing – so how is it? Stay safe and cosy today, my friend – especially when driving to the hospital.

    • Good morning petal. I echo our other friends. Stay safe and cancel the dentist if it gets too dangerous this afternoon. :love:

    Good morning Hayley – don’t think the wind will arrive until a bit later, hopefully not until I have got back from the foodbank this morning, when I’ll be watching it from inside. If I was at home, I’d be down on the beach watching the waves and the spray, but here it will probably be empty recycling boxes blowing across the road (no comparison).…[Read more]

    Well it isn’t here yet – but Ireland seems to be properly battening down the hatches – and Karen’s post reminds me to make sure there is nothing lying about outside which could do damage if flying about. Well, since I wouldn’t like to be clunked on the head by an airborne cold frame, I’d better get those back into the garage – and of course,…[Read more]

    • Good morning Bean. A good idea to remove stuff as it is anybody’s guess exactly how high the winds will be. Stay safe and fingers crossed for a falling cherry tree ;-)

    • Morning Sheila :-) hope the tree falls but not in your direction! stay safe and indoors, obviously!

      • Good morning Cilla and Jane – will not be indoors until this afternoon, when hopefully my daughter will return one set of my ladders from the renovation site so that we can replace the defunct fire alarms, and the ceiling spotlights in the gloomy bathroom where there is only one light still working.

    • Morning Bean, Cilla &Jane, stay safe Shelia &Karen. Let’s hope this is the only really bad weather we get this year! :rose:

    You lucky lady, Cilla – I daren’t buy a single plant. Will be having roughcasting done next year, and must move established plants away from vicinity of walls to where?????

    I bet one of the main reasons the Scots gNats want independence, is the hope that they won’t have to listen to English people discussing better weather……

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 2 days, 9 hours ago

    Is there ever an end? It might be if you don’t count the back/front gardens to be totally redone, exterior painting, and cleaning and repointing of front stonework. But I AIN’T going up on a ladder to the eaves to do it. She can get some professionals in to do that when she sells her flat.

    Am so annoyed that I missed your birthday, Dix – but perhaps this makes up….

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 2 days, 9 hours ago

    Good morning Jane. Was delighted to read your post. Nothing increases the pleasure of doing damn all, than the knowledge that others are grafting away mightily……But glad you managed a walk first.

    • So glad my pages of words to correct will help you through your rainy day!

      • Morning Jane. Sounds like a nice walk, no doubt we will be going on one. Washing and gardening here. It is very grey but probably warm. Have a good one. :-)

        • Morning Cilla :-) warm here but sign of sun even though the forecast says it will shine! Enjoy choosing where to put your lovely new plants :rose:

          • Morning everyone, very warm here to jane. :-)

  • Beanstew posted a new activity comment 2 days, 9 hours ago

    Wouldn’t get many of these into a pot for cooking……
