 Another 3.45 wake up this morning , im always a terrible sleeper no matter how exhausted and how busy i am its bed at 10am awake by 3 , until i get the one day i just zonk and fall asleep for hours  I sleep with earplugs to get that extra hour . Saying that i can sleep anywhere in any position if its a sleepy day . Im hoping for a sleepy day today as its fishing . Ive read the paper and done the quiet chores im on my second cuppa and the eggs are boiling for pack up . I await with interest what state Mr BH gets up in and the decision if he wants to go or not it shows signs of being a much drier and sunnier day today so i live in hopes .

So lets talk Cummings , its rather like a bad comedy at the moment .  The Lying cheating scum in charge can do as they like , theres no opposition theres nobody else in the Tory Party gagging for the job of being in charge . The UK is bobbing about like a rudderless ship while we laugh at the latest playground spat . I rather expected Wanksock to burst into "liar liar pants on fire " when he was corned by the press yesterday .  Boris merely slugs down another Chuck A Mucka organic cocktail enjoying his notoriety as Pleb Killer in Chief . Ive come to the conclusion that we have the government we deserve . Its all a bit fall of the roman empire without the empire existing except in the Tories minds .  What next Boris biting the heads off kittens in a live broadcast?  while the Britains got Talent watchers cheer him on . "Thats our Boris , one of the lads"

For A Change

Another lush green morning with lots of rain , the gardens loving all the rain . The cats however are not , yesterday our very vocal elderly cat  could be heard getting closer and closer at speed , she ran in as if her tail was on fire, it was hailing icy bullets and she was having none of that . Giant hailstones anyone?

 You know the say nothing if youve nothing nice to say mantra ? Sod it . Lets talk Boris and the wedding. I gather we must save a date in July 2022. So mistress en titre Carrie is going to drag the git to the altar . Is it to give her a whole year to go Bridezilla ? or is she planning to spod out another kid shortly . I should imagine that most of the posh wedding folks are hiding cringing in the bushes hoping that the Wayne and Waynetta Slob of the moneyed classes dont call them . After all theyre hardly going to pay the bill are they , will it be a ticket only job  where you pay to attend?  Dyson providing the dress and JCB doing the catering. possibly Tony Blair on guitar ? 

 Well i suppose he an aging tomcat these days so she stands a chance of being his last wife though i wouldnt count on it , however shes supposedly a tad fiery so a vasectomy at dawn with a blunt bread knife is always a possibility and could be very entertaining for the rest of us . Cant wait and why do i keep thinking about My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding ? with of course environmental credentials and eco themed everything and Dilyn the dog in a matching tuxedo .

Odd Day

 I was up at 5am after getting cramp and ending up on the bedroom floor in a heap , so now i have a bruised shoulder to add to my trivial woes . First thing on booting up the puter i find a wonderful email promising me 18 extra large African cocks and half asleep opened the chicken email that i thought my mate had sent me ....errr it wasnt chickens !!  I did exercise more caution with my other emails .

By 7am everybody was still snoring so i snuck out to the car boot , it was heaving and the wind was bitter , didnt buy a thing other than my veg for the week . Got home and took a look at the sore shoulder only to find ive a lump that Quasimodo would be proud of and its starting to throb nicely , this will cramp my style today as i had an appointment with my hedgetrimmers , but just to make me feel less guilty its now turning nice and black and spitting with rain . Oh joy ive 4 loads of washing out .

Maybe its just safer to take to my bed for the day after all its not even 10am yet

Not Fishing

 Today was going to be my first days fishing this year , BIL has a full weeks work this week so MR BH had the major grumps .  But then he got worse when i said i would only go to the little pit locally , not feeling it, i didnt want to be miles from home if anything goes wrong . So this morning hes got up on toddler mode and has announced hes not going anywhere . No loss to me i can potter in the garden , plenty to be doing if it doesnt chuck biblical hailstones at us . Still tons of replanting to tackle , though i did laugh , i bought some Lidl seed strips for a scented border plopped them in the darkest corner of the garden , covered them in compost and then the heavens opened . Went back the following day and all the compost and seeds had gone , so now its going to be a mystery surprise where they appear  Gradually replanting all my tubs and pots hadnt realised i had so many so pottered down to Aldi with himself for some cheapy compost having used all that i had from the old compost heaps . Now i can only use the small trolleys because if i put the bags in a large one i cant get them out , so im laden up and i get to the tills and im struggling the trolley wont steer and the guy on the tills wasnt exactly much help and a very nice gentleman my own age came to give me a hand . To make it worse the ramp from the store is a tad steep so two of us struggled to hold it , the gentlemen said he would give me a hand to get them in my boot . When he got to the boot he looked a tad puzzled by other half not getting out or helping . When i opened the boot and he spotted the crutches and wheelchair i guess he twigged because he turned to me and said " well i guess he still makes a good cuppa" . When i thanked him and got in the car the steam was coming out of Mr BHs ears . All i got all the way home was sarky comments about Fwends . I did point out that how is it different that he has to have help ?

Friday 14 May 2021


Im having a severely bored phase , despite the never ending gardening  which will start to lessen in the next couple of weeks , life is just tedium . I sometimes think i will go to my grave surrounded by shit and endless washing , Mr BH had a bit of a bad phase after his second jab . Today is my first freedom day for 3 weeks , you know hes not been well when he hasnt fished for 3 weeks . BIL has come to the rescue and off they have pottered to the fishing pit . Freedom day is to be spent trying to make head nor tale of the new DWP renewal of PIP form its not the condition report side of it everything has got worse , its his medical side of things , i have 5 years of medical records to go through to cross reference all the exact dates, umpteen medical letters from umpteen consultants to copy and link to the exact points in his medical notes , all because they now want exact dates at which each medical  condition started it would be easy if it was just one but ive realised that theres over 20 different things that are wrong with him ...AAARRRGGGHHH . 

Im also now a prisoner in the house because theyve upped one of my medications , this means i darent drive because it gives me blurred vision and dizzy spells , Ask  GP it would seem that cant be happening and it must be stress, funny read the leaflet in the box it warns about this.  I was in for blood tests last week and have had a load more this week only to have the health assistant going on about had i considered anxiety medication?  What to make me more compliant and not question every aspect of our medical care , musnt remind that theyve nearly killed my partner on a couple of occasions or that people who struggle to use their hands have a big problem with Ask GP ? . Im sorry i loath  health professionals who judge and the bleedin have you considered online mindfulness classes types . You just know they have a house painted white with inspirational quotes everywhere and a yoga mat in the corner gathering dust

 So finally into the ground my pink fir apples and orkney blue spuds have gone 6 weeks later than usual but it wont hurt them , nature doesnt care what day i plant them and the rain meant that i could get the shovel into the ground , i have bent the shovel however , today i will be mainly hobbling and getting on with Mr BHs new improved DWP forms , its the new PIP renewal form that there is no help with , we cant find a single help agency that has tackled this one and after a read through ive realised that yet again every question is to try and trip you up . It has the usual threatening tone that the disabled look forward to . In normal times this would have to be returned within 28 days which wouldnt give you time to collect all the medical paperwork required .  Ho hum does anything change , it appears that they are only sending these out at the moment to those who had to drag them to a tribunal to even get PIP in the first place.  Its not helped by the fact that i know Mr BH will make my life a living hell if i dont fill it in correctly , im not sure what part of degenerative condition the DWP dont get and once again theyre harping on about what treatment and surgeries you have had to improve your condition . I wish there were treatments and surgeries that would help him but at the moment their isnt until they can do something about his vascular problem , the one they asked him to consider palliative care for!!

Let It Snow

Plagues of huge hailstones seem to be the latest weather weirdness, it looked like we had snowfall yesterday morning , today the sun is shining brightly on a really hard frost . Pottered out to vote in the local elections  yesterday not a soul did i see it was rather fun playing hopscotch over the dog turds spattered over the paths ....why cant folks just take their dog turds home ?

Garden work continues between showers , still reconstructing the garden swing . I was told to burn it and order a new one , till his lordship found out that it was £400 upwards for a new one . Its taking a lot of repairing , im really not safe on ladders ,. But hey ho needs must .

Had to venture into the dark cavern of Morrisons at Lincoln yesterday after the last miserable home delivery they provided , all my veg and salad was mouldy and out of date .  All of the frozen stuff was missing . i know they refund promptly but they have removed the messaging facility on the facebook pages and the website .  I hate the Lincoln store with its narrow aisles and way over your head shelves . The point on still ordering online is that i have to shop alone and i cant lift and reach stuff that is heavy plus i cant use a large trolley as i cant reach and lift stuff out of the bottom . I was on mission pigs liver yesterday one of the things you cant get online, the local butchers only have it now and then , so thats topped my supply up . I await the weekends morrisons delivery with interest . We are slowly turning into a food desert here in rural Lincolnshire. .Lots of glossy farm shops and organic wonder shops for the tourists but the locals cant afford to shop at them and the Coop is so expensive its scary   

Saturday 1 May 2021


So i woke up as the sun came up this morning , then wandered down the garden with my camera to take some frost and mist shots accompanied by our ancient cat wowling for her breakfast , now im on my first cuppa trying to decide if its worth a trip to the car boot or not . 

Opened up the Daily Mail online , because i have to have something to talk about later with  mother and was spitting feathers immediately . Our esteemed leader has written a lead article about how the Tories are going to be tough on crime , think they may have had 10 years for that one .  Bragging how they have over 8000 recruits in training after cutting 20000 officers . One chief constable recently  pointed out that there is no actual gain in numbers because so many are walking away from policing . His lock them all up rhetoric rather falls flat , moaning at the courts for soft sentencing is laughable , you cant send people to prison if there is no room . You can wait years for a trial because of cuts to the court system , the CPS are laughable . The privately run probation service crashed and burned before Covid . Even forensics are on their knees due to cuts . 18 month waits to retrieve phone evidence . Meanwhile half the criminal fraternity is out on bail awaiting all this stuff . Covid can excuse a lot but systems are crumbling everywhere . Ive no doubt Boris will announce that they are building lots of new prisons , with American companies . Monetarising felons is a huge industry in the States . 

Then i started reading the comments , why  just why , this is gammon land on steroids . Is there anyone certain Tory voters dont hate and despise .  If we had enough police they could charge lots of the commentators with hate crime it really is that bad .

The fact that we are being governed by a bunch of thieves is irony in the extreme , hes more concerned with dog theft , than the fact that members of his party are involved in corruption on a massive scale ......just beggars belief
