    She is not great @Hostafan1, but Moira's sis. is now going up, whilst they try to sort out new carers or her going into care.
    I empathise. 
    Sending love to you all.

    We're watching the Olympics golf ...  the commentator keeps saying 'Now this is interesting' ........ but it's not  🤣


    Yeah, now the men's diving is finished I don't think any of Olympics is interesting either.

    The Woman’s Rugby was terrific as well.

    Strangely, not something I've ever watched. Can't think why  o:)

    Some folk watch for the excitement of the sport @Hostafan1 .... not just/not even for the eye candy 🤣

    I think you were born without the bit of brain that 'gets' sport for it's own sake @Hostafan1 ;)

    I'm the least competitive person on the planet. 
    8 folk running round in circles: One will win, the other seven will lose. I just don't care which is which. 
    Ditto swimming backwards and forwards, riding bikes round and round, hopping skipping and jumping. Only one winner, SO many losers.

    Morning all, grey and drizzly here so not a gardening day, I could always do the h/w I suppose.
    Happy Yorkshire Day, one of my great grandmothers was a Yorkshire lass, so do I qualify too?
    I'm with you completely @Hostafan1, the Olympics is the most boring stuff ever and excruciating to watch - so we don't. Enjoy your day with your daughter.
    @Punkdoc, Hope Moira has a good journey home and that the family manage to sort out care for your MIL.
    We've eaten far too many pub meals lately @Busy-Lizzie so must cut down a bit now. Enjoy yours however, sounds an enterprising pub.
    You've got an idyllic lifestyle @tui34, I could get used to that.

    Morning all.

    New garden toys should be arriving today, cordless lawnmower and strimmer. The old petrol ones are now 25 years old so I shouldn't complain too much. The lower deck which supports the lawnmower rear wheels broke last year and replacements are no longer available. The strimmer has been a pain as it has always leaked more fuel than it burned and the line feed never worked. I have been trying to make do with a Flymo that never flies but seems to suck itself down onto the ground. Yes, I have checked that I have the blade the right way up.

    I need to get rid of the long growth which the ticks use to launch their attacks. I have extracted 56 so far this year and caught at least another dozen before they could latch on.

    @Hostafan1
    i never watched it before either but those women/girls were something else. 
    I’m sure there would be something for you to enjoy 😜
