    Evening all
    Well my get up and go came back, so when DH got back from taking mil shopping we started the jobs in the garden. He cleaned the outside of the conservatory while I sorted out the many pots and hanging baskets and swept up all the leaves that had accumulated. I'm amazed at how many of the fuchsias and geraniums have survived and are growing already. I just had to cut off the dead bits.
    I tied up the huge jasmine, and fixed some wire netting to the top of part of the fence, (cat anti escape measure, lol). Having stacked everything on one side of the garden, DH broke out the karcher and cleaned most of the patio. I took over and cleaned the patio table and chairs. Goodness knows how much our water bill will be .
    Knackered now, so gas fire on as we're both cold, coffee, and telly evening ahead. I've got my feet up on the recliner as my ankle is still painful 9 months after I broke it. Been told painkillers, rest when it hurts, and patience, which I seem to be a bit short of
    rose, so sorry to read about your flood. The only upside is that you get your new kitchen and bathroom, and all your decorating done.

    Tweets sorry your feeling unwell
    Bubbs the baking looks great...my niece is coming over Tuesday with her toddler and 5 week old baby- I offered to have baking session with the toddler, so hoping the cakes look as good as yours.
    Quick trip into town resulted in bargains in A
    Decaf coffee 23p
    Big bottle wul 19p
    Shower wash 10p
    as well as many of the other items already mentioned.
    Johnson baby wash under £1, not sure of actual price
    an item I missed as none left on the shelf - the man in front of us at the till had 16 pkt of shades quilted loo rolls £2.50.
    went HB bought 1 pkt of the buttons- ideal for Tuesday baking session

    September after 1 week back at school he was expelled although we had had problems during the previous school year...he is now at a short stay school. I don't know if they have these in your area...because he is in his exam year he couldn't be integrated into main stream school..
    These schools are good, but they have all the worst children there!! and talk about influence, all the bad things he is soaking it all up
    His saying at present is You're not my keeper, I'll do what I want when I want......He has no respect and no regard for authority, and im at my wits end.
    So Sarah I can empathize with you

    Don't know if this applies to other schools but the last 3 I have worked in the naughty kids seem to get thought of better than the good kids, The teachers seem to mollycoddle them and they get their dinners first . I personally would make them wait til last for their dinner .

    Sarah and Hillbern I hope the lads sort themselves out soon it must be so difficult. Most kids do turn things around. My friend sent hers back to their dad who lived at the other end of the country after the divorce. They are now two of the nicest young men I know

    Bulbs. All the baking looks fab and I will be happy to have a bit if fruit cake. Yum
