    I expect the next generation will face warnings about air quality and be persuaded to buy it in bottles for safer breathing.  What amuses me about the bottled water fraternity is that when they make tea and coffee, they fill the kettle from the tap.

    They sell oxygen in Japan. You're behind the times J!

    My sister and I had our children at the same time, she had a boy and i had a girl, they're now 4. She wraps hers in cotton wool and basically leaves home with a full blown medical kit whenever we go anywhere while my daughter is lucky if I have any wipes for her mucky pup face. My nephew is always poorly whereas my horse poo shovelling (at pony club not for child labour :D ), bug collecting, mud pie making little girl is hardly ever poorly. She got nipped by a beetle just yesterday when she picked it up and said "he's a bit mean I only wanted to say hello"  :D she's not scared of anything and we love her for it. She's a little adventurer and the dirtier she is by the end of the day, to me, signifies she's had a fab day exploring  :) 

    I wonder if the dettol washing powder gets mud out of clothes though? 🤔 :D

    I spent my summers being bitten by everything as a kid -  field mice, ants, wasps, bees, goats. Generally it was seen as my own damn fool fault for trying to pick up everything and have a chat.

    I can ask my little girl to "assist" with anything in the garden, she's my chief toad relocator 😁 so handy.

    I don’t like my neighbours being able to see me in my garden. 
    Is there an evergreen tree which will quickly grow to 38 feet by 17 feet and block the view? I don’t want anything that I have to look after.
    Apophthegm -  a big word for a small thought.

    Lol, I need it to block a view of the shard and I’d like it to have flowers all year
