    Well I was just about ready to go to bed when I sat down to check my emails and discovered my bruv, who lost his wife in about February time, has now found out he's got bowel cancer.
    FFS.
    He really doesn't deserve this sh!t.
    I am so angry and upset for him.
    I know it is common nowadays and he'll prolly be OK in the end, but life does sometimes know how to kick people in the guts when they are already down.
    Makes any problems I have pale into insignificance.
    Anyway. Tomorrow is another day!
    Nite all!;)

    So sorry to hear of your poor brothers health problem.
    Hopefully they can do something to help him immediately.
    Chin-up (you and him both).
    Best wishes. Dan.

    Morning All :D
    The weather is conspiring to keep me away from painting the final bits on the house frontage.
    1.It is a bit cold and damp for it.
    2. I don't want to be up a lightweight ladder in winds like this.
    Never mind, a day will present itself next week. Instead I shall tidy up the workshop.
    Have a great day everyone. :D

    Clear blue skies but only 5° at the moment. That should hopefully pickup as the day progresses.

    Mornin all another sunny day in scotchland...
    yesterday was like a summers day, went to get the misses mob fixed with no joy so another
    few hours to waste on monday to take it back as the lad in the shop only does eye phones,
    the other dude does all the other brands.:mad:

    Hoards of cars parked along the Gareloch road Helensburgh was mental of peeps trying to
    catch a glimpse of the whales.

    Got my tree felled last night afore our fish suppers arrived, had one beer enjoyed the sunset.
    I'll be logging today might have a fire later & sit an have another beer.

    njoy your day lads n lassies. :)

    Thanks, mate, they caught it pretty early on i think, on getting up and rereading his email a bit more carefully.
    So yeah, fingers crossed!
    Cheers!:)

    Thanks Dan.
    After a calmer read of his mail I can see that they have probably caught it early-ish and I think that means he has a much better chance of recovery.
    His son is being a rock.
    Can't see him till we get back from Frogland, do our quarantine, and then look at whether Hull is going to be locked down or indeed where we are in Dorset, which is a bit less likely.
    But thanks very much for your wishes!

    This morning I set one hundred million nemesis toads into me lawn. They is now busy lunching on the chafer grubs which hopefully will now stop scoffing me grass roots. I am now officially a green gardener, although when I looked in the mirror I still looked pink. And a sparrer hawk knicked a goldfinch for his lunch, wasn't bothered that I was watching him :eek:
