Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I too had several bulging discs and one herniated, the one treated. I was lucky I think, no lasting or indeed remaining problems after the op, but I did have nearly 9 months physio before it, which I was told was very noticeable from day one. I am sure things will improve with time

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Packing today, off to France on Thursday. Rather a lot of veggie plants to take and this year they are rather large! We were going in Bobs car but my mini Countryman has more height in the back, being like an estate car so we had a last minute change of car on the ferry booking. I have a lot of gera...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

I was brought up with a Labrador Maz, rather similar to yours. Little Bobby has returned home. He was fun to have for the weekend but such a nosey little thing. I couldn't even go to the loo without him pushing the door open and wagging his tail as if I had disappeared for hours. He is welcome any w...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Sue...my son's dog sleeps downstairs with us when she visits. She used to wake me up ( for a wee) when she was younger by laying at our bedroom door and puffing under it. Rather cute...I always heard the puffing and got up to her. We are in a bungalow so we put Bobby in the cool part of the conserva...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Depends what they are used to as a routine Sue. Jack has his sleep periods like clockwork because that is our routine. The problems come when the dog hasn't got that framework. The one you are looking after seems to have a good routine and that's a credit to the usual companion animals! Yes he has ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

We did a mile last night and he seemed to think it was enough. He seemed to sleep ok, and is now happily dozing at our feet whilst we have a cup of tea. We shall breakfast and then take him out along the old railway track that is now a footpath in Healey Dell. It seems very popular with dog walkers,

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Its funny you should say that Maz, I had considered the discrepancy but there were no such patterns available and as said child has no waist I hoped she would forget. As for four layers there is already 4 metres in it . On a plus side there are two layers of net and another fabric layer in the last ...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

My Briony I am afraid is more discerning Stanley. However great progress was made yesterday. We have a dress attached to a bodice, fully lined , with two tiers. I have the zip to finish and the last tier with the tulle netting to assemble and attach. Then its hemming and its finished. Its the same b...

Re: Today I shall be Mainly...

Oh yes the request is a little easier than the Cinderella dress she asked for when she asked for glass shoes too, ...’if you can please grandma! ‘

Briony at 7 loves glamour, her sister is sporty and wants nothing more than leggings and T shirts, with the occasional pretty top.

That looks like it would be easier to cook than sew. A bit of meringue for the skirt. What has she drawn it on? A bit of wood? They were playing in the garden and painting on scraps of off cuts of wood of daddies. I have found a pattern for a tiered dress and bought some lilac patterned fabric. The...
