    I have found a very reasonably priced complete raw. Some are incredibly expensive and we used to use them til we got poor but these seem good and they love em. I used to do DIY until I couldnt bare to spend another morning chopping massive livers and lungs. Too hard for a virtual vegan

    Have been gardening and clearing myself this arvo. Knackered and still loads to clean up Love love love this semi retirement lark

    Oh I couldn't imagine the worry of DIY...and the handling....no! Triona (the lady we got Max from...raves about the complete from this company....she comes up from West Kerry once a month specially to get it cos they don't deliver..so it'd be rude not to
    In truth it's not dramatically more than d'other stuff so I'll suck it up!!!
    If this garden works out for me I think I will retire sooner than later...I'm so excited about it so I really get what you're saying!!!!
    Right...dinner

    When I think of retiring I sometimes worry I will be bored. But its amazing what you have the energy to do if not working. How big is your garden?

    The garden itself is quite big -- think it's about 3/4 acre... but the area Joe is fencing off is small -- it's like say the size of a big patio -- but it's got walls - so I can plant high as well as flat -- already have some nice climbers in there so the basics are there -- there's also an old stone bbq built in down there so it's functional - and a teeny wee pond... it truly has me very excited -- browsing seed catalogues all evening -- the flagstones down there are pretty grotty looking but I'm going to grow fragrant herbs through the flagstones so it'll smell nice when you walk on them -- my retirement is full already

    I can't imagine that you with your dogs and your liking for gardening that you could be bored -- you must live in a lovely place as well -- any photo's I see when you walking your dogs looks fab! Nope I've no fear of boredom I have to say -- not anymore.. maybe when I was much younger I would have been aggrieved at not having money to 'do' things -- these days -- happy to do nothing - once I have a book to hand I'm entertained anyway!

    It sounds wonderful! Like a little cottage garden. I LOVE walls too. Sounds weird but on my walks I am always checking out old walls and the plants that grow in them

    I am not a gardener really. I have a few pots and 4 tomato plants that I am desperately trying not to kill But we do have a nice garden and I enjoy tidying it up when the weather's nice. Mainly lawn and a big hedge and a couple of patios with the bird feeders on. And of course my dogs keep me very busy which is great. Yes I am happy if I have a good series. Trying to get into reading too. I have heard that Jane Fallon writes good stories so going to try one of hers I think. At the moment I am reading about a nurse in the 1970s which is quite entertaining

    I read according to my mood..sometimes horror..sometimes science fiction..ancient history..and sometimes plain old rubbish...when I was drinking I couldn't read at all..it is shocking to me now the things I gave up for drink..I love being enthusiastic about things again!

    Evening, got my Turmeric and cod liver oil There's a giant Holland Barret smack in the middle of Tesco. I let Mr. JC listen to yer woman gush on about them so he's now the expert.
    I'm a new woman already. Will one of you please remind me to take them. That way I get it from two sources of nagging........in the nicest way. I know me I get very enthusiastic then sort of go off the boil so to speak.
    Mr JC's got a whole week off and apart from our hearing tests on Tuesday the world is our lobster or is it oyster???

    We were going to have a nice wander around the gardens at Alnwick castle but we have to put the dog in a cage while we have a wander. Think Mikey's had enough of crates to last him a lifetime so that was a no. We'll take him to the seaside before thay shut some of the beaches to dogs.

    And Mr JC got some bedding plants at Tesco that were a damned sight better than the ones we saw at the garden centre so he's like a pig in mud now. The new fencing is on hold at the moment as they've run out of wood.

    You know for a while ( a long while to be honest) I've got a bit of enthusiasm back.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    Evening all just checking in. Note to self, stop retreating back into my shell and post more often even if I have nothing to say.
    Ethanol is a toxic chemical, why would I drink it?
