Good morning everybody. Another Chapter in the Rez series.
Busy I think that donkey sanctuary looks wonderful and Caesar should find lots of new friends there but there will be a gap in the field. You are right about him munching on the roses I think.
Biglad, a long way to travel to do your running round the field duties so have a safe journey. Another three weeks added to your timetable - you can do it!

    Cacoethes: An irresistible urge to do something inadvisable
  • Good morning LB and all to follow.   Busy it’s good to know Caesar is going to a donkey sanctuary.  He should be happy there.  LB I can’t believe we’ve talked our way through another chapter.  What a beautiful picture of the trees, really lovely.  Thank you for doing this for us all.  I hope you slept.  I did eventually for a few hours.  Biglad, as LB says, wishing you a safe journey and enjoy your refereeing.   Thoughts are with all those connected to 9/11.

    Good morning RosieBB. I slept quite well yesterday, with a break at about 03:15, thank you.
    Yes, a dreadful memory - 20 years ago. I had just retired and watched it all, with shock and horror, unfold on my TV screen.
    I am off to 'sco now with a list of things I need. I wonder how many things I don't need leap into my trolley!

  • Hello all … hope everyone’s slept well and that those with health concerns are doing ok.🤞 

    I heard the rain down your way yesterday was pretty torrential @Topbird … son phoned me to tell me about it and he’s not usually impressed by weather. We had a bit of heavy rain but not the monsoon he spoke of, but we did have pretty impressive thunder for quite a while.  We’re off to Cornwall 22/23rd so it’s getting closer 😎 

    Hope Caesar gets on ok with his new friends @Busy-Lizzie … I imagine there will be a fair bit of ‘jockeying for position’ … especially as he’s not used to company. He probably has some social skills to learn 😉

    Good morning all.

    Caesar has gone. I hope he's OK on the 5 hour journey. The vet gave P a tranquiliser to give him for the journey. I wonder if donkeys get travel sick. His little paddock is in 3 parts, a bare patch where his shelter is. Bare because he ate and trod on all the grass, a small orchard and a small wild  flower meadow. I'm going to sow wild flowers and hardy annuals around his shelter when I've removed his droppings to the compost bin. It may be too fertile for wild flowers though.

    It's my oldest grandson's birthday today, 9/11. He'll be 16. He's a lot taller than me now.

    Good morning all. Off to work all day. Feeling rather tired after a busy stressful few days but tomorrow is a lazy day. 
    Daughter will start regular blood transfusions at the end of October to help treat the symptoms of her MS so hoping that works. Not much fun but she is being brave about it. I think some lifestyle changes are in order too. We are all now concentrating on wedding plans. 
    Busy hope the donkey is happy in his new home and you don’t miss him too much. 
    Dry and sunny here but we did have heavy rain yesterday.

    Morning all.

    @Dovefromabove - is your son staying with Wonky at the moment? They may have had torrential rain there but we had nowt but a light sprinkle. We really are in this weird little pocket that misses most of the rain!

    Lovely autumnal photo LB - but I think we might have to wait a few weeksfor the trees to look like that around here. Lots of nice bright berries though.

    Debs - fingers crossed the transfusions help.

    Off to SM in a bit then several more loads of Lily's TV....
    Heaven is ... sitting in the garden with a G&T and a cat while watching the sun go down
  • Morning everyone, goodness 108 went quick 😂
    Beautiful autumnal photo @Ladybird4 trees here are still very green too. Love seeing them change, such beautiful colours.
    Glad the donkey is going to a sanctuary, but I'm sure you'll miss him @Busy-Lizzie The wild flower meadow sounds lovely. Happy birthday to your grandson 🎉🎉🎉
    @debs64 hope all goes well for daughter.  Hopefully the transfusions will help.

    I remember seeing the 9/11 live on TV. I'd just come home and turned the TV on while having  a cup of tea. I thought id turned on during a film, not realising it was the midday news. Absolutely horrific. Can't believe its 20 years ago. 
    It's very overcast this morning, looks like it could rain. I'm hoping to get out in the garden and do some general tidying and sort the last of the pots. 
    Have a good day everyone
