    Maybe @fidgetbones knows of a similar one available in the UK?

    I find Pholcodine good for tickly, awkward coughs. You can get it in most chemists. If you ask the pharmacists, they'll usually offer you an alternative to the expensive brands too @Lizzie27 :)
    Glad you're a bit better now @Obelixx.
    Really dank and miserable here, but there was a pair of young thrushes in the garden flitting around and chucking bits and pieces from the borders all over the gravel paths. Lovely  :)
    Lots of little young looking sparrows on the fat balls too. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Thanks Fairygirl, I'll bear that one in mind.

    @Lizzie27 It's called TOPLEXIL and the active ingredient is Oxomémazine.  Not for pregnant women, children under 2 and anyone operating machinery or driving.   It's French so I've never tried it before - 1st cold since we moved here 3 years ago - and I only bought it as I had to go to the pharmacy for more expectorant anyway and fancied a decent night's sleep.  It certainly worked.   

    Oh has just timed walkies very well.  Bonzo is up to 30 inutes a day now and that's how long the only dry spell lasted this pm and now the heaven's have unleashed a torrent.   Very noisy and also very welcome - unless you're a nocturnal critter I expect.

    Hello all from soggy Ireland... all that sunshine was definitely too good to last!  This is what it looked like down by the lake a couple of days ago:



    - however it's still definitely autumn, with plenty of leaves on the trees.   :)

    Spiders had been making themselves at home here in the couple of months since we bought the house.  Unfortunately the cat likes chasing them - but they puzzle her by disappearing down cracks and behind furniture.  They look very similar to the ones she was pestering in Yorks, but I don't know if they're actually the same species.

    Hubby left at 3.30 this morning to drive to Dublin for the ferry.  He has a concert tomorrow followed by a rehearsal on Sunday, and will stay with our son & family in York, then go to the old house to collect some stuff and recycle some unwanted items before returning here on Wednesday.  I've been keeping out of mischief by opening more boxes and finding Useful Things.  My heart sinks slightly when confronted by a large box labelled "Paints, coats, bins etc" - one of the last ones to be packed at 4am on the day we left, when the priority was just to get everything in a box somewhere!  Anyway, on the plus side I've found the kitchen clock and the peg bag.   :)

    Good to see you @Liriodendron :)
    Were you able to see anything today?  ;)
    Nothing to see here today either.
    At least you have the pegs though - now you just need a half decent day again to use them  :D

    Evening. Just soup and a toastie tonight but do have some cake for later. My work girls loved the cakes I brought today - it was funny that some immediately went for the cherry and Nutella and some made a beeline for the apple. Glad I took both now. 

    Had a chuckle about your peg bag @Liriodendron - they can probably go back in the box 😂

    Hope everyone has had a decent day. Stay cosy if your forecast is anything like mine.

    Hello. Been hatch battening. 80mph winds and 80mm rain forecast for tomorrow.

    Which is nice.
