Re: WW1

They're beautiful, stunning colour. We have some enormous white poppies with deep purple centres - amazing sight, for a day or two earlier in the summer - but decimated by the rain.

Re: WW1

It wouldn't be about celebrating though, it would be about acknowledging, remembering. It's about reminding people, many of whom, thankfully, have not lived through anything like that, that people lost their lives in order for us to live the lives we have today. I like the idea, and I will buy some ...

Re: Introducing...

The excitement has been building for ages now - Edward originally asked for a rabbit last year, but I put him off, because I already had enough animals/chickens/people to move house with!! So far, the boys have done all of the cleaning and feeding duties, and have been very diligent about spending t...

Re: Introducing...

We're all very much in love :-D Apart from Comet, who is annoyed at being relegated to the other half of the garden unless he's on his lead!

Re: What hot tip for keeping girls cool ?

We bought quite a few melons from the greengrocer the other day, very cheaply because they were almost past their best. We ate what we could, and froze the rest, cut in half for the chickens - they've been going mad for it!

Re: Stress incontinence - 9 month old puppy.

Well - I'm now wondering if there was a problem. I know that there had been leaking ever since we got Comet, and I wasn't sure when I posted originally whether it was more frequent or whether I was just noticing it more. He didn't have any signs of being ill. We were away on the weekend, and he was ...

Re: Looking for cat advice please.

Another update. We didn't rehome him, I couldn't bring myself to do it, especially after thinking some more about Gwen's post. He'd been missing for two months, and although our old neighbours were seeing him around occasionally, none of them were able to catch him for us. At long last, we had a cal...

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

Yes - it feels as though this will be easier to manage being out and about. I'm glad to have had a reasonable loss this week, it will motivate me to focus while we're away.
I'm glad it's working for you as well :-D

Re: Positive about sorting my weight this time...

2lb off this week for me - 11lb in total (I can almost taste that first stone!) We're away for the weekend though, so I'm trying to psyche myself up to be careful & not put any back on. >fi<
