Hi Jenny I wish I’d thought of/heard of the man’s towelling dressing gown thing before mum died. Such a garment would’ve swamped mum and she would’ve loved it! Devoted daughter??? That’s a new one on me but, actually, your comment has made my day, so thank you…. Have a cyber kiss :kiss: Hi ExD What ...
Hi ExD Many of the problems you described I also had with my mother. My mum was also very frail, was diagnosed with both Alzheimer’s and Vascular Dementia plus had mobility problems due to severe arthritis and a dicky heart to boot. One of the main things I learnt when caring for mum is that dementi...
P.S. I've now viewed the second photo enlarged (you do this by left clicking with your mouse on a forum photo. It will pop up as a photo on it's own with a magnifying glass cursor. You then move the magnifying glass to where you want to enlarge and left click to enlarge. You can then scroll up/down ...
Hi Flo I recommend Pinks for pots. These are basically old fashioned carnations with smaller flowers, but much stronger perfume and are hardier than carnations.

Continued from yesterday: SM: This I have got to see. Are you sure you don’t want any help? One down, two to go. Tree stumps can be murder to remove on your own. I wouldn’t like to tackle your Dr Who alien on my own. Me: No thanks. This is strictly between me and it. A duel to the death… its death. ...
Made a bit of a Greek mythology mistake with my so-called Cerabus. The emoticon I selected is in fact a Hydra. I never noticed the fourth head till now, but no excuses for not spotting it’s a dragon-like creature and not the hound from hell. I’m sure Robert Graves (he of ‘I Claudius’ fame and who wr...
P.P.P.S.
Cerabus (kind of.)

P.P.S. What's a '502 Bad Gateway' message? That flashed up too, and I had to re-log in. Sounds like something that three-headed pooch, Cerabus (spell checker says Abuser) the gateway guardian to the underworld would say. Cerabus: Sorry folks, computer says no. You're not allowed entry to death's ant...
Hi Flo I strongly suspect that my gardening make-over will be an object lesson in not what to do as I, unlike my mum, have red fingers. For instance, I bought 5 Lily of the Valley bulbs (Convallaria Majalis, to be precise) from Aldi for no good reason other than I liked their name. They came in a pl...
Hi Andrew Sorry to hear about your birthday washout.
