hi all just catching up with forum, nothing seems to have changed the weather is still so bad it s the topic of conversation but as you say its quite warm sometimes.
looking after a friends animals whilst they are down in torbay, the dog is ok, but the three cats have played up. first day one of them just scooted back upstairs and hid under the bed and did not come down for three days, the other two went out but when i went to get them in one of them had gone astray. i went back several times even at eleven at night shouting up the woods 'jack' and rattling a box of biscuits but nothing. he showed up at 11 the next day. today the three of them made it out, i thought good - then on trying to get them in, two came in and had a feed, one went in its basket the other ran out and off and the other still is missing, so two of them are out. will be so glad when i can hand the key back and let the cats get back to normal. they are so fickle.

Morning all

Cat sitting don't talk to me about it, we are looking after some for the wife's friend who is at a wedding in Israel at the moment. Then they are going straight from there to the south of France for 4 weeks. The thing is these cats are house cats and not allowed outside. Of course their only purpose in life is to get outside. We go to feed them twice a day and its a nightmare. It's a big rambling house and the cats have so many places to hide, of course if the wife can't find one of them she thinks it has got out. It's no good trying to tell her that it can't have got out or the alarms would have gone off. So we usually spend about an hour searching for one or the other.

One of the other things I had to do yesterday was along with the wife we visited a Hospice up SB's way just off Sheldon Heath Rd. Pauline's 91 year old aunt had a fall and she has been spending a couple of weeks there so they can keep an eye on her. She is getting discharged today.

What I was surprised to find out was that they didn't have one vase in the whole unit! Apparently it's not the done thing to take flowers to a hospital or hospice any more. How long has this been the norm, I have to say that it looked a pretty gloomy place without the usual flowers everywhere.

I think it has been a while Phil. I was wanting to visit a cousin about 4 months ago, and remembered that I had heard something about flowers being banned, rang and asked. Lucky i did, as it seems to be fairly standard now, I think it is a combination between "Hygiene" (nasty dirty unhealthy things) and some people being allergic to flowers and this causinga problem with others in the sam eward who do have this problem

Do me a favour Astwood, replace your lawns with Astro turf.
