First!

Tomnoddy - 01 Jul 2019 21:23:01 (#2 of 1602)

I have to go and spray pyrethrum extract.

HouseOfLametta - 01 Jul 2019 21:24:04 (#3 of 1602)

I have just been fixing a toilet seat. It's flimsy fittings entirely dissolved with Len-piss.

The glamour never starts.

Dubris - 01 Jul 2019 21:25:35 (#4 of 1602)

It's all going on, isn't it?

slicey - 01 Jul 2019 21:26:28 (#5 of 1602)

I have fixed an excess of insulin with a bar of Dairy Milk (Crunchie Bits Edition).

HelenDamnation - 01 Jul 2019 21:26:57 (#6 of 1602)

I really need to replace my loo seat. I have bought a new one. My thumbs are just too bolloxed to manage it, and it seems pathetic to get someone in to do it.

binturong - 01 Jul 2019 21:27:10 (#7 of 1602)

My windowsill dill has aphids. I've ordered some predators.

slicey - 01 Jul 2019 21:28:41 (#8 of 1602)

Oddly enough I also have a dodgy loo seat.

Sabacious - 01 Jul 2019 21:31:27 (#9 of 1602)

What predators, Bint? Every now and again our indoor herb garden gets aphids and there's no getting rid of them. Dill and basil are always the worst hit.

Dubris - 01 Jul 2019 21:32:17 (#10 of 1602)

Spray 'em with bottled Len pee. Guaranteed to get rid of anything...

HouseOfLametta - 01 Jul 2019 21:39:21 (#11 of 1602)

Weirdly, as I was walking to the garage to get some penetrating oil and a clé anglais I noticed that the neighbours were chucking out their khazi. We are surrounded old people who spend their lives replacing perfectly good stuff.

So I thieved the seat off it (apparently brand new).

Mrs L came down and stared baffled at it.

"How have we got a new toilet seat?"

"I had a spare"

"What?"

"In my work trousers"

"What?"

<Walks away muttering>

Sabacious - 01 Jul 2019 21:40:17 (#12 of 1602)

Very capable trousers.

HouseOfLametta - 01 Jul 2019 21:44:59 (#13 of 1602)

On Sunday, someone had a problem with a camping chair.

"The foot's fallen off it, but I need a 4.5mm allen key to put it back on.

Me: rumages in pocket "there you go"

I have a reputation to maintain.

Sabacious - 01 Jul 2019 21:45:53 (#14 of 1602)

Swoonworthy trousers.

HouseOfLametta - 01 Jul 2019 21:52:37 (#15 of 1602)

And, it was a 5mm. The fool.

Sabacious - 01 Jul 2019 21:53:52 (#16 of 1602)

Trousers know best, cleary.

binturong - 01 Jul 2019 21:56:06 (#17 of 1602)

I shall hold the LenPee option in reserve I think Laz. First line of attack will be ladybird larvae, which will also be deployed outdoors for the infestations on the broad beans and redcurrants.

Dubris - 01 Jul 2019 21:59:55 (#18 of 1602)

Lazlo's trousers are making me feel inadequate.

Sabacious - 01 Jul 2019 22:07:12 (#19 of 1602)

Any ladybird larvae in those trousers?

Oddly, the only plants with any signs of any aphids now are two of the carnivorous plants.

goldfinch - 01 Jul 2019 22:11:30 (#20 of 1602)

How many carnivorous plants have you got, Sab? I have one and I could hear a trapped fly buzzing away in it the other day which was somewhat disconcerting.
