Garden party
22.09.2006 at 09:19:08
 
After chatting to a few people we seem to have come to an agreement that Saturday 7th October is a good day for people to come and help clear my back garden.
 
So I'll be laying on some grub and drinks for anyone who is able to come and help on the day, and even some music and stuff. (unless the weather decides it's going to intervene of course!!)
 
We only need about half a dozen able bodied people to help clear the majority of the undergrowth, if this can be done it would be a great help for us as we can then see what we actually have! If you aren't able bodied you are welcome to come and supervise  Smiley
 
So if you like exploring places where no-one has ever been before  Wink, let me know and I'll send you the address. Anyone who is free to help would be most welcome, I live in Cradley Heath. (I can even pick you up if you live localish). I woud suggest bringing a pair of garden gloves and although I have some garden equipment you may like to bring your own.
 
Also on the evening 1066 is laying on a party at their meeting place at the Rose & Crown, just off junction 3 of the M42. I will be popping in for a pint and a chat, there will also be live music etc so you are all welcome to join me there as well.
 
 
PM or email me if your thinking of coming.
 
Cheers
 
Vic

It' not a disease Starby  Grin Grin if you had mumps as a kid it wont affect you.  Usually only contracted by adults who never had mumps......I think.

You can't catch shingles. It's a dormant virus left after you get chicken pox, then comes back when your immune system is low (depression or stress, that sort of thing). Young children can catch chicken pox from someone with shingles but adults are safe.
 
So if you've ever had chicken pox, you have shingles sitting there just waiting to come at you (lovely thought aint it?  Smiley ).
 
If you're really interested have a look at this: http://www.medinfo.co.uk/conditions/shingles.html (and yes I have the pain and I can't wear a shirt now etc etc)
 
The garden party is still on at the moment. Should be all cleared up by then. I'll review my situation nearer the time. Apparently the pain carries on sometimes for months after the shinles has gone so If I feel like this I won't want to do it anyway.

Tut tut john boy! I shall be writing a letter in points of view.

Dear Mrs Saggy Jowls
 
I wish to protest in the strongest possible sense, [Yada yada]. I beleive that auto imune desieses are not a point for discusion in this sort of forum [chew, chew]. I have only once been so insulted [frothing at the mouth] and that dispicable Wallace and Gromit tried to claim that the moon was made of chees [Waving hands frantically] Anyway I must go now as some children are playing football on the grass in front of my house. [Where's did I put my 12gauge]
 
 
Yours Sincerly

Things are OK now, I'm all cleared up and I'm starting to feel better, so next Saturday's garden party is still on.
 
Anyone who wants to come is welcome, especially if you're physically fit (or at least able to walk  Smiley ) Mental incapacity is not an excuse  Smiley
 
PM me or email if you need the address/directions. I can pick you up/drop you off if you are local. If you have garden tools then bring some with you as well. The plan is to try and clear as much undergrowth as possible, so "The Boss" can plan what she wants me to do next  Smiley
 
Of course if it's still p*ss*ing it down then it will be cancelled.
 
Cheers
 
Vic

How did this go? Haven't heard. and did not think to ask at the MAG.
Sorry, BV, we knew we could not offer help cause that weekend was already booked some time ago.
Letting JJ loose with a chainsaw in my mother's garden next week though (couple of trees to come down).

It went well, Pete and David came and managed to cut all the undergrowth away. David came again the week after and helped me dig up the remaining stumps of trees. Just got to get rid of it all now and the garden is clear. We are trying to arrange for a skip.
