Heartbreakingly this morning I took Angel on her final journey. Yesterday I had to take her to the emergency vet, who looked very grave. She has been wonderful company since I lost Ted four years since, the house is so quiet, too quiet.
Last week I used Vinted to purchase a second gilet. No email confirming the item, and I haven't a clue how to find out what is happening. Will have to wait until my dil comes before Christmas. Not impressed. It doesn't look as if the money has gone out of my account, so something was amiss.
I have some mole hills in the old veggie plot, which has beautiful soil, treated by Ted over the years. The main attack is in the churchyard, where there are several enormous mounds. My oldest son did mole catching as extra income, but has retired from so doing. The garlic thing is interesting.
Yes, Mo, the honeysuckle was in flower. Yesterday my gardener came. He comes about three to four time a year. He trimmed my front hedges and the leylandii on the trellis, cut my oak tree back (I grew it from an acorn), and a fir tree near the gate. I have a beautiful cotoneaster hedge at the bottom ...
My daughter in law ordered a gilet for me in my presence, it should arrive in the next couple of days. My landline was down at the weekend, and an email arrived from Vinted with a code, which if not actioned was obsolete. I have mailed them and asked them to send me another one, but not heard back, ...
Thank you for the recipes, LL. I have never celebrated Halloween, but we did do Bonfire Night. There were four farms surrounding us when my sons were young, and always a huge village bonfire in one of the fields. The whole village participated, taking toffee, spuds, and I made a huge container of cu...
I can see from here that some of the cardboard has moved. We have the storm here, the path and lawn are covered in leaves. Sadly all the work my friend did in the veg plot has been a complete failure. However, I have moved all my bedding plant tubs into the greenhouse, and the antirrhinums have burs...
Today the friend in the village\ who has taken on Ted`s veggie patch for herself, came round with cardboard, and with the boxes I had, we have almost covered the veggie plot. We recovered with a glass of fresh orange (carton), and a long chat.
I envy you your apples, Mo. None of my trees fruited, plenty of blossom though and there has been nothing on my pear tree, I sowed cornflower seeds earlier in the year. They have grown sparsely in the tub, which I put in the greenhouse last week.. Today I discovered four beautiful blue flowers on th...
A friend from the village took Ted`s veggie plot on a few weeks` since, for her own use. She planted courgettes and onion sets, which have done nothing at all, but the potatoes she put in have come up. Most disappointing after all her hard work, but our neighbours on one side with the overgrown gard...
Thanks, Mo. Angel is improving, albeit it slowly. I contacted the emergency vet on Saturday, who advised a level desertspoonful of boiled rice four times a day instead of the Purina from the vet nurse on Friday. This has settled Angel`s tummy. This morning I again phoned the emergency vet to ask how...
