Glad you're back nesting. I hope the trip was an encouragement to go again?

The grass is a worry when we go away isn't it. You would thing there would be a solution by now. Some sort of growth inhibitor? For years we had horses and goats but, of course, they needed looking after. I think the new bungalow will have a very low maintenance garden. I might start a new thread on the subject.

Just as I get my large lawn back to respectable a storm comes and covers everything in leaves and twigs which is bad enough but then the moles appear from nowhere and make extensive furrows all round the edges.
I used to sit them out with a gun that solved the mole problem but as it's cooler now and one neighbour might cause trouble. So I am resigned to trying to 'fork' them.

As I understand it the grass has grown since Saturday when the heavens opened here, before that everything was dry.

It is very lush grass, maybe if I let it grow someone would like it for hay. Mot wouldn't be very pleased about that, already he cant understand why I am reluctant to play tennis with him, if he doesn't mark where the ball has gone it could take me hours to find it.

Im wearing myself out going in and out of the van, I thought I would leave everything in there until tomorrow, but that doesnt work because I keep finding I need something thats still in there.

I know - that's why I loved living full-time in the van - I didn't have to do that!

I use ikea big blue bags - find they're great (if I don't fill them too heavy).

I have no trouble emptying it when I intend to Jean, I just felt rather weary when I got home so thought I would leave everything in there until tomorrow, certain things I dont have two of one in the house the other in the van, like tablets for instance, Motleys bum bag ( the one I wear when we go for a walk with all the necessities for a dog in) milk from the fridge so I brought in all the fridge Contents in the end. I have my plastic baskets to transport stuff.

I didn't know you lived in a van full time, when was that?

Before I had the pleasure of owning a motorhome and getting to know you.

I have just taken the car down to get the MOT, hope it will pass.

When I get it back The Navajo will need some attention.
When that's done my teeth need attention, then my body needs an overhaul and reconditioning

Ha ha ha yes Jan the real world. Just when everything is ticking over nicely and one can relax the maintenance mode kicks in.
From batteries in the mouse to Leakey water heaters.
