    Morning paw sniffers

    Hello AJ

    We have a cloudy morning which suits me as I need to get down the allotment.

    Exciting times for my little patch. As DD and DS have flown the nest, my allotment is too big for me. I give more away than I use which is fine but there's more to do than I can cope with. I'm giving the use of it over to a young couple with a lovely little family and I will just use what I need. They are beyond excited and I am relieved. They know nothing about gardening.....but hey.....did any of us when we started

    Our intention....jointly .......is to whip it into shape for next year

    There's lots of work to do

    morning all, thanks for all the well wishes & hugs for my family. My sis is really struggling with it, and seems a bit like her family is all pulling in different directions instead of together, but they all will hopefully keep it together enough to work it all out.

    ZIPPY Hugs & xxx thinking of you.

    Each person will be battling with their own private grief wondering if they could have done anything to prevent it.

    I hope they can all keep on talking it through.

    I've just picked my third cucumber this morning, I swear they taste better because I've watched them grow but there are so many other benefits, it didn't come in plastic so I've saved landfill and there is no carbon footprint. I wish more people felt like this.
    I took dgd round our garden pointing out all the fruit and veg around the garden, I gave her raspberry but it shot out quicker than it went in
    She's obsessed with butterflies, I'm not sure if this happens in everyone's garden but they land on us all the time which she finds fascinating

    Good morning all

    Nice to see you posting AJ feeling any better?

    It was again a bit warm to sleep well but definitely nice and cool this morning

    Take care

    How are you getting on with retirement? Enjoying your free time or wondering how you ever found the time to go to work? Xx

    Durham, I'm sorry to hear the sad news. I'm so far behind and must have missed it. I think initially it's not unusual for families to pull in opposite directions but reality sets in and all pull together.

    You're all in my thoughts xx

    Hello TM
    How are your feet doing, I happened upon one of your posts from a few days ago. It's a b^gger and embarrassing with fat feet shuffling along as best as one can.

    I've suffered fat feet syndrome off and on for a few years but since before our holiday I've had fat ankles and fat feet. Makes mobility nye on impossible some days as I refuse to go shopping in slippers and I'm not wearing Mr AJs plastic flip flops ever ever again they're miles too big

    I hope everyone is as well as can be during this heat wave. Yes. DM I know you haven't got it it will be with you soon,

    Drink plenty water and keep in the shade as much as you can folks.

    Hugs to the poorly Elite and special thoughts to those feeling low in body and mind, you're in my thoughts every day xx

    ps my max price is 25p per can
