  • Bar stools. I’m meeting some friends in a Weatherspoons. The ordinary tables and chairs are taken up with families with children so my only option was a “tall” table with barstools. Not all barstools are like these and i’m perfectly happy to sit on them normally. The ones I hate are like these. The only rungs to put your feet on are too low down. I have to stand up every few minutes to stamp the pins and needles out of my feet. Getting back on to the stool is a feat in itself.

      • 2 of my buddleia's have not survived a neighbour offering to cut them back whilst I was out

        • Are you totally certain they are dead? Buddleia seem able to resprout from old thick wood.... I thought it was almost impossible to overprune them. I think I may have killed a hebe by pruning it hard though.

              Sadly I’m sure. The stems that are left just crumble. The other 2 plants have survived the onslaught though.

              • It takes some talent to kill a buddleia. Does your neighbour do couch grass or ground elder by any chance?

                • Someone's thrown chicken food at the back of my hives.
                  Don't know what they're hoping to achieve. Apart from encouraging more rats than her chickens do already.

                  • Vet bills........I know they train for years but I sometimes wonder whether there would be less medical neglect if some of the prices were more affordable. Thank the universe for online pet chemists as it saves me 37 a time on the ancient mutts pills.

                    • p.s my vet is 28.50 just to walk into the consulting room and that’s without anyone going near the daft old mutt.

                          • vets bills are a shocker - I'm trying to convince Mrs Balders to let me buy online sachets of anti flea treatment for large dogs, then use a dropper to apply an appropriate dose to a small cat - I'd save a fortune.
                            She won't let me.

                            Don't know why.

                              I regularly use a vio. Online vet for various meds. It normally turns up next day and if it’s a prescription drug I ask for a script, send it to them and save a lot of money. The script can cost between 15 and 20 but will cover for at least 3 months.

                              I worked out that by ordering the old mutts arthritis meds this way and including the cost of the 15 script I saved over 132.
