    Even the dogs wag their tails. A lot of them would dearly love to come over for a pat, but with the Borisbug that is not allowed.

      A rambling set of thoughts. This morning on my walk (despite the arthritis I was determined to go out)I met various people. It struck me that they come in various categories. There are the strollers who meander up the lane at no speed. Then there are the walkers (me) who go at a decent pace. Next come the power walkers who overtake both of the…[Read more]

    • Does anyone use one of these? We need to pick up a lot of leaves, but my arthritis is so bad these days that bending, kneeling etc. is too painful.
      Any info on ease of use would be nice.TIA.

      Dull and damp this morning, but sunny now. Gone very cold though.
      Garage door surveyor came this morning. With a bit of fiddling they can fit roller door. Going to cost a bit more than the original estimate, but not that much and it really needs doing. The lock is getting harder and harder to undo and fasten. Not very secure either as the door can…[Read more]

      Spent much of the day de=slugging the greenhouse. Last three auriclulas had root aphids so they were consigned to the great compost heap in the sky. Not going to bother with potted ones any more.
      Supposed to be mild and wet this evening, but I am cold. Feel the cold dreadfully these days. Boss says it is because I have lost nearly 3 stones in…[Read more]

      • Sounds very good on the face of it Eric…losing weight that is … am getting fat and lazy, me :bad:

          We use Gmail for family and close friends with no trouble, Yahoo. mail we use for anything else. Not as good but free and adequate.
          We did have Mail. com for a while, but lost the password and never bothered trying to get back in. Worked ok while we used it.
          All of them do better with an Adblocking program though.

            Had to sign in today, took ages for it to recognise me.
            Nice sunny day, but not exactly warm. We did get a nice walk this morning.
            Finished filling the raised bed with riddled soil. Will have to leave it now to settle and for the Celandine etc. to grow. Did a bit of weeding. Need to remove fallen leaves from where they are sitting on plants now…[Read more]

            That is what I did, but the stuff still stuck to the edge of the tiles instead of gong into the space.

              No wind here today, least ways not atmospheric wind. Drizzle,yes, cold, yes, but no wind.
              This garden is actually quite sheltered, I worked outside the other day and it was only when I came in that I realised that it was blowing strongly and raining. Where I was it was still and dry.

                Managed a walk this morning, put my back support on which helps no end. Damp and drizzly now.
                What I would like to know is how these people on the TV garden makeover shows manage to trickle cement powder down into the gaps between things without getting it all over everywhere else. I have just done path laying and there is more cement on the…[Read more]

                Morning all. Raining now, but we went for our walk anyway. Easier to get changed than just sit at home. Arthritis is pretty bad today, so the walk was cut short. Sitting here now with a heated pad on my back and Volterol on my neck and blow the itchy back.
                Rain looks set in for the day, so Computer here I come.
                Stay dry folks!

                Cannot take that as it does not mix with my other tablets. Thanks anyway.

                  Tried Turmeric, it gave me chronic indigestion. The acidity of Pineapple is even worse for my stomach so that is out of the question too.
                  At the moment I am having trouble with the ketoprofen gel. For some reason it has begun to cause an allergic reaction so my back gets very itchy.
                  Glad they work for you though.

                    That is it for the day. Raining now and looks set in for the duration. Black as anything out there. Raised bed is about three quarters full now, so next dry day should see it full. Robin though Xmas had come early with the number of things it found to eat in the soil mound. Silly thing to do, after the first rain shower I came in and left the…[Read more]

                      • It will soon dry Eric no point riddling wet not going to do you any favours. I suffer with arthritis Eric I added turmeric and pineapple to my daily grub both have anti inflammatory ingredients. Don’t give up going to be plenty of dry days coming soon

                              Been there, done that. Some of them are incredibly difficult to put up.

                                    • do think I was married for my goffering skills Mick and my ability to use a saw, hammer, drill – quite like a flatpack myself too

                                    Strange sort of day weather wise. Started off raining and warm and gradually chnaged to dry, sunny and cold. the wind got up too.
                                    Riddled enough top soil to fill about a quarter of the new raised bed. Had to stop as it gets quite painful on my shoulders if I do too much.
                                    Stay dry folks.

                                    Despite the drizzle all day I managed to build the raised bed at the top of the drive. Now all I need to do is fill it with soil. That is quite hard work as the soil mound is full of Celandine roots, grass roots and Arum bulbs so it has to be riddled to get rid of most of them. Covered it over so at least it should be dry enough to work on.

                                      Finished putting the ;last of the edgings down the top path and begun laying out the base for a raised bed next to it.
                                      Raining now.

                                      • :good: Step by step…it’s too cold and dark now anyway Eric :-) I just went to the local shop which has introduced a P.O. counter, and dropped in a couple of parcels for click & drop service and it’s ‘boris’ out there!!! :silly: :rose:
