    Oh Cilla, my thoughts are with you and the family, as the others have said, there was nothing you could do.
    Sending lots of love and hugs. I think the coffee morning will be a good idea ,as you won’t the the only person feeling what your feeling. :rose: :love:

    Hayley, I’ve tried to comment twice, so am giving up!!!

  • flowerpotlynn posted a new activity comment 2 days, 11 hours ago

    Hi Hayley, were not sure how they got in, as it’s a full sort with zips, but you have to make sure all zips are done up and the velcro attached. But as you say perseverance. I think he does have a slight allergy, hoping it doesn’t get worse even improve if he has area more!!!

    Good grief Jenn, that’s a serious hedge!!!! Not only the upkeep,but just thinking how much water it must take out of the ground!!!!

  • Evening all, well the wind has died down a tad, but a yellow warning for the rest of the week!! We picked 3 trays of pears on Monday, we now have most rest on the lawn and path, with just a few hardy ones hanging on the tree, collected in more honey yesterday another 30lb,but poor OH got stung 4 times, one other the bees got inside his suit and…[Read more]

    • Oh Lynn, hope he’s feeling better now? How did they get inside his suit? Perseverance no doubt! Sounds like he may have an allergy to bee stings maybe? :rose:

    • Yikes, not so good for poor OH, hope he’s not too sore by now Lynn. :rose: It’s all calm here this morning thank goodness. :good:

    Morning Jane, thankyou for wondering where I was :rose: you probably think I’m being paranoid, we don’t have any next door neighbours as such, who would see anything odd going on,but at the moment the two houses that are closest are not lived in, one is for sale the other is being refurbed before they move in, so had no one to keep an eye on the…[Read more]

    • Hi Lynn :-) very sensible of you, re your break :good: We all need reminding really – even those of us who don’t do FB! Very warm here and mega windy too. I bought a duvet from John Lewis that has poppers to join the winter and summer bits – the summer one is too hot in the summer and so the winter one has been in the wardrobe for about 6 years…[Read more]

    Evening Anne,no nothing lost, the tomatoes in the greenhouse are almost finished, but the ones in the garden are still going :good: and I have very small beans at least :lol:
    Almost caught up with the washing, just the ironing to do!! Very mild today and this evening, back in my shorts and t-shirt :good: :rose:

    • It’s been mild here too .. a beautiful Autumn day :-) The beans in GG have been lovely so far this year, even tho’ I put them in very late :-) Win-win :lol: :rose:

  • A lovey walk Anne, with so much colour. You must be very quick with your camera to catch the dragon flies&butterfly’s.
    I have noted the amount of berries on the bushes around us, they are loaded, the birds […]

  • Evening all, been a busy few days, catching up with fruit picking, deadheading of flowers, watering and a never ending supply of dirty washing after out holiday in Scotland via Liverpool. It was a lovely break, with very different scenery and having a cottage on a bay, watching the different sea birds and the tides rise and ebb. I’m now trying…[Read more]

    • Ooch …. hope that you haven’t lost anything vital in the garden Lynn? you did say that a neighbour would cover the essentials … did she? … Anyway, welcome home xx :rose:

    Goodness me Anne, you don’t do things by half do you!!!???? Sending lots of :love: and hugs for you feeling better and a speedy recovery. xx

    • Hallo Lynn :high-five: it was an aspiration to check to see if the hot, swollen knee and very slightly raised white blood count was indicative of sepsis …. and eventually it was found not. Cor it didn’t half hurt on Sunday :lol: I’ll tell you more soon. Thanks :love: xx :rose:

    Afternoon OW, we have one of those battery Bosch hedge trimmers, it’s very good and I can manage to trim with it,can’t even get the petrol one started letalone lift it, we also have the grass strimmer :good:

    • Not as impressed with the strimmer. I think our grass (and assorted weeds) are too thick for the battery one. We do have a petrol one which does a lot better.
      I lifted one of the petrol driven hedgecutters in the shop and put it straight back down, with my arthritic neck I would have struggled with the weight of it.

    Morning Karen, thankyou :rose: , thankful that the headache has moved on,just snuffles& a cough.
    Hope you had a good day yesterday :clover: Hagd today too :clover: :rose:

    • Glad to hear you seem to be improving :good: Those bloomin wains have a lot to answer for. ;-) My poor Aunt is going downhill badly I’m afraid Lynn, so the visits aren’t the easiest but she loves any company (even if she doesn’t remember) and it gives the younger Aunt a bit of support as well. :rose:
