Awww! Sweeeet!

I'm so glad your Tuesday Gardener (do you have a gardener for every day of the week?) is through the op ok. Send him my love! :D Not called Mellors is he? :shifty:

Seeing the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer. Until I watched the trailer, I had only a mild interest in the film. Now, I really want to see it.
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

What made me grin from ear to ear yesterday was the lovely card sent by all my lovely friends on the TP forum.

THANK YOU ALL, it made my day.

:lol: :lol: I'm the gardener :chores-mowlawn: and care for several clients who are mostly too elderly or infirm to do their own gardens. I've been going to this one once a week for about 9 years as it's quite a large garden and very labour intensive. The gentleman in question is 82 and Ukrainian but his wife was born in this area which is why they chose to live here. I've got very attached to all my clients over the years and they're a bit like family!

Lots of these made me smile, but just a warning, some of them are kind of sad too.

Today my daughter and I both fell head over heels in love with a hamster who needed a home.
I'll try to work out how to post pictures soon. He's very cute and....of course, he's here with us :doh: :D
