Man flu is a serious condition, it renders you unable to do anything constructive.

A bit like pregnancy, PMT and benefit fraud ;)

Scored two out of three ;)
Not knocking Man Flu. I'm really struggling today but I KNOW it's just a bad cold.

Walked back from Mothercare with bags of safety stuff and a fire guard, my arms are flipping falling off! Safety check in less than two weeks. Daffodils are on the poisonous plants list, I'm hoping I don't have to pull them up :shock:

Just don't add the bulbs to a stew. :shock:
Personally I avoided growing anything with poisonous berries/seeds when the kids were small, and things like foxgloves because they are so much fun to wear flowers on the fingers. Just treated other stuff with a bit of caution.

Dotsie you'll be totally fine! Hugs!

I moved about a million day lilies from one bed to another yesterday. Ouch. Woke up feeling like I'd been hit by a truck. Didn't know that was going to be such a hard job. But, I made space to plant the sunflower seeds, so hopefully those come in nicely.

Tried on a pair of summer pants that I could have sworn were loose last year. They're not loose anymore. :x I should be working out right now, but I'm so sore from yesterday and so irritated about the pants that I'm going to instead choose something more productive - eating a brownie and lazing around. :oops:

Summer pants shrink whilst in storage, it's a known fact ;)

Well it turns out that my old house, which can't have alterations done because it's listed, might be a bit of a health and safety nightmare. So we'll just have to see how strict some of the points for improvement are. Hmm.

Ah-ha! I knew it! Stupid shrinking pants.

Sorry about your old house. :( Hope you're able to get it resolved and sold quickly.

What grading is the house Dotsie, you can usually get away with things with grade II but grade II* or grade I you can forget it :roll:

No Con, it's like those suits you don't wear for ages. It''s something to do with storage in wardrobes, it makes clothes shrink I'm certain of it :D

Don't want to sell it, I meant old as in 'it's old' rather than 'previous' :D

It's grade II Mad, but the changes would mean the window frames, which I can't touch :roll: There might be a work-around, I know there's others in my village who've been through this so there must a solution somewhere :?

Mine's II* :roll: I can't touch a thing. Windows are usually OK on grade II as long as you stay with wood and not UPVC and they look similar to the existing ones.
