I had to go away unexpectedly because my mother-in-law was taken in to hospital. And I then stayed with her for a couple of weeks because they discharged her and she was too ill to stay alone in her house. She is still ill and awaiting tests to tell her what's wrong. My sister-in-law is with her now.
Once I have reorientated myself I will write a proper post but for now, and until I have caught up with everyone else's blogs, I just thought I'd say hello.
Actually, while I'm here I have a problem one of you might be able to help me with. It's next door's puppy, a black Lab, and it keeps getting into my garden and trashing my borders. My neighbours have increased the height of the fence between our gardens so he can't jump them, and also lowered them so he can't get underneath, but still he gets in. When I got back, late on Sunday, I found poo everywhere and all number of plants, including three lavenders, a rosemary and several scented stocks, crushed and snapped. Does anyone know of a way to make my garden a less inviting loo for a dog, I'm being driven doolally?
