    done one appeal for her VV so am more clued up this time – trouble is DWP never give anyting away in terms of how they work, change the goal posts frequently, and obviously are not respecting the decision of the appeal panel previously which is in force until next year – happy days

    • Can the appeal panel be put in the picture about what they are doing? Damn disgrace that they are going against their decision. :angry:

      • no once they have “done” their bit that is it for that appeal the DWP advise that they reserve the right to review again within the time put on by the appeal panel – so the cut off date for the judgement is 2019 but DWP have done it this year – such fun

    morning clickers, sun it is shining through but damp everywhere, colour on acers and stellata in garden are breathtaking, never seen them so good. Glad this week is over, daughters cat was hit by a car at the start of the week, vet was just amazing but truth was that the injuries were so bad that he had to be put to sleep, so three grandchildren…[Read more]

    • Aww so sorry xx

    • So sorry to hear about your daughter’s cat, and about her benefits fight Jenny, that PIP system seems to be a nightmare. :fingers-crossed: it will get resolved – quickly. :rose:

    • Oh dear Jenny … so sorry about your woes this week … I hope that next week will be better :good: The lady next door says that her two beautiful cats have to be rehomed … what a shame they can’t live with your lovely daughter. Good luck with the DWP … again :rose: :rose:

    morning each, the sun is peeping out after a wet and grey weekend, planted carrot seedsin the greenhouse so hopefully come spring will be enjoying them. Off to church shop shortly, enjoy your day folks

    afternoon folks, bit damp and chilly here, off to Church Shop volunteers tea party this afternoon, a thank you from the church and a chance to meet everyone who often are only names on a rota as our paths don’t often cross. Keep looking for geese in the sky, flying in for the winter but nothing yet, the goldfinches seem to have disappeared, had a…[Read more]

    thanks Anne, I’ve grown the pumpkins, given them to grandchildren and leave them to create their lanterns

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 2 weeks ago

    afternoon each, that’s another Friday been and almost gone – still trying to work out how October has gone so quickly – ha ha – old age or what? dragged out some dead privet hedge this afternoon and replaced it with some hazel which the squirrels had kindly planted around the garden and I have been saving them until big enough to plant to fill the…[Read more]

    it was great fun, some of the pumpkin carvings were terrific more like sculptures absolutely beautiful

    morning folks, lazy start to day today OH has gone to daughters to “do” grand daughters appointment for CBT, son and family calling in for tea on the way to see our “Pumpkin Walk” which is tonight and tomorrow night, local people and business decorate pumpkins and set up scenes with them – was on the promenade but now in ornamental gardens so it…[Read more]

  • good move Tony, years ago I bought an Irish Spade on a visit to Ireland – round mouthed spade with v.long handle, it has been a doddle to use because you don’t have to lift very much to dig – know what they are […]

    don’t overdo it VV – the body doesn’t like too much exercise when poorly

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    dry (so far) but cloudy up here today, replacing some hedging which has died off, should be interesting if nothing else, got garlic planted yesterday, bit more clearing on plot needed yet – encouraged by how things grew this season, where possible have not dug the plot over and stuff seemed to grow much better – will try the same next season,…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenny, I’ve been using “no dig” for years and find it gives excellent results. Enjoy your hedging day. :good:

    • Good morning Jenny…. that’s a really useful comment on ‘no-dig’… must confess I tend to poke about, rather than dig over, and just layer and layer with compost and mulch as and when …. Robin is always out there with me for worms, even when I lift the lid of the compost bin :lol:
      HALD :rose:

    just milled a bit more cilla I think

  • Yewbarrow posted a new activity comment 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    we did Cilla, there are 10 of us when we all get together – we have had freezing days out – complete with picnic, lots of wet days out, just get on with it and as you say Cumbria’s well used to wet – did get some flooding the weekend before this one in Grange – poor souls, one family had only just got back into their house from 2015

  • Yewbarrow posted a new activity comment 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    worth a try BS – have cut back on sugar greatly in this house, OH is type 2 so find most things we used to have are so sweet they are almost un-eatable, hope you find a solution soon

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 3 weeks ago

    Its raining its pouring, the old man is snoring – or he will be after he has had his lunch – ha ha, very wet here – had a family day out to Brockhole yesterday, rather wet but less than today, had a v.quick picnic – other people must have thought we were mad and then grandchildren let loose on the adventure playground – had planned to have tea and…[Read more]

    • Hi Jenny, you must be used to wet up there ;-) As long as the company is good it doesn’t matter about the weather and it sounds as if you had a lovely day :-)

    have you tried half and half BS – it is half sugar, half sweetener, I use it when I want to sweeten fruit either cooked or raw like strawbs etc. and daughter has used it in baking – should be on supermarket shelf near to ordinary sugar – not sure if its tate & lyle or silver spoon or whatever it is called – you just have to make sure you only use…[Read more]

    • I have been using Half Spoon for several years, Jenny @yewbarrow– but a couple of spoons of that in every mug of coffee I drink every day still represents a horrifying amount of sugar and empty calories – but Half Spoon a great tip for anyone who still uses ordinary sugar. Thanks Jenny.

    not much in the way of autumn colours, quite surprised, some trees not even begun to turn yet – is autumn holding back, had a nice lunch though

    • Evening Lynn, goodness that is a surprise, they are well turned here. Glad you at least enjoyed lunch. :rose:

    • I think the Autumn colours have been slower here in CP and down in Montpellier too Jenny, tho coming back on the train there were beautiful patches of Bracken turning as well as some bright Maple trees. :rose:

    enjoy Anne

    • Thank you Jenny … I did ;-) I hope that you had
      a good day. Had obviously been raining cats ‘n’ dogs here when we finally got back home this evening :rose:

  • Yewbarrow posted an update 1 month, 4 weeks ago

    morning all, another greyish day, we had thought of a trip to Harlow Carr but decided to have a jaunt into the Lakes instead, should be some good colours on the trees, spot of lunch and then home – enjoy your day each

    • Morning Jenny – that sounds lovely and a whole lot better than my boring day! Enjoy :good:

    • Morning Jenny, sounds like a lovely day, the colours should glorious, enjoy yourselves. :rose:
