Good luck for next Monday Tiger. Wonderful that keyhole surgery is so much less invasive than some of the old procedures which speeds up recovery.
Am sure you're glad to see the back of your catheter OH. Not the easiest bit of kit to live with, is it? That must feel like real progress!.

Thanks all for the kinds wishes, I might be able to post on here, but the hefty garden work can wait for a bit.

Just been in the greenhouse and have sown some Broad Beans and Sweet peas in pots and some Beetroot in cell trays....Feels like the start of the season now, even if i'm not firing on all cylinders yet.... :)

Well the sun came out so I just spent an hour in the greenhouse, the French Strawberries needed tidying up, so dead stuff removed and top dressing applied, looks almost organized in there now. Once I can put out the pots that over winter in there, I can do some proper preparation.

A strange thing has happened to one of my over wintering pepper plants which I hard pruned last autumn and brought indoors to spend winter on the lounge windowsill. It flowered again and has produced more small peppers about 1.5 inches long, but all the peppers are actually bell shaped and now turning red whereas the plant was actually one of these long pointy pepper Italian varieties.

I can only assume it's having some kind of trans gender crisis !

Primrose that did make me giggle out loud! Thank you - I've had an intense brain ache day & now that is gone out of my brain & I will sleep in the knowledge that in LGBT month even the pepper plants are participating & funnily the transgender are represented by green on the rainbow! :) :)

I'm not scared of many things but, needles do make me feel more than a little queezy so, glad that was the last of the blood thinning injections yesterday... :)

I don't mind needles (I give blood) but jabbing one into your own midrif must be a bit odd.

I must admit, Cook did the injecting part for me.....had the injections in my legs, as my tummy was really bruised from the robotic operation....the only problem with that was, not a lot of softness to inject into, just muscle, so had me squirming a little. :)

Things could always be a lot worse, Tigerburnie.....
Cook did use to play a lot of darts and there was many a person that wouldn't be able to get them back out of the board, where she use to throw them so hard... :)
