Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I am always wary about collecting mushrooms. I think I got scared when I studied mycology at university and started thinking every wild mushroom was potentially poisonous. Last night was a hot night, first for weeks. Its already 20 degrees at 7.55 am. Its due to be a hot but cloudy day with a couple...

Re: PET'S CORNER

When I had a slipped disc, I had to lie on the floor several times a day for 15 minutes. As soon as I moved to the floor my little cat ( RIP) used to come and sit next to my head as if she was guarding me. When I was better (and should I be lying on the floor for whatever reason) she never did it ag...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

a bit of post visitor cleaning and a trip to the shops to buy some mushrooms and other veggie. I may do a little gardening later or, as a rarity, just sit in the sun and enjoy the luxury, we won’t get much more of it.

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

The swelling may be an abcess from the bite.our cats often suffered from this after a scrap with a local ‘ invader’ to their territory. Antibiotics will put it right I am sure. Don’t worry Stanley. Its Pams last day so we are going out for lunch. It is a typical mid August day with a thick fog. Hope...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We went for a short walk yesterday morning, around one of the two lakes in the neighbouring village and did not go to the fete as it was torrential rain the rest of the day. I was disappointed as I love the annual visit to Lizio with craft stalls and breton dancing. Bob even gets a look in at displa...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I have some shoes like your boots Stanley. I often wear them with thick socks around the house to try and loosen the tight binding round the edge. Otherwise they are a lovely comfy fit. I had the day wrong for the mediaeval fete. It is to day the same as the other fete. However heavy thunderstorms a...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

The bobble hats..... What a good idea! Yes they are. I found out about it and thought the U3A craft group could get knitting. We contacted the hospital who are very grateful. When the baby leaves the unit the little hat goes with them so there is an endless need for hats and knitters. It takes abou...

Not sure what I will be doing today beyond dealing with the Jack situation..... Best course is that I can bring him home and nurse him myself.
