A happy belated birthday! Dad stopped remembering anyone's birthday a few years ago, I remember the sting of it, but it does fade, I promise. Years ago when dad used to mix up what actual day my birthday was, he would say 'Well, I was there when you were born!'I know I am not the first and I won’t be the last but today hurt. Today is my birthday and Mum is totally unaware. Last year she managed to write me a card and remember the date within a few days. So feeling rather sad however I am glad I kept the card from last year.
I like what your Dad said. It made me smileA happy belated birthday! Dad stopped remembering anyone's birthday a few years ago, I remember the sting of it, but it does fade, I promise.

I have a vague hope that carrots might just survive as a planted them between rows of onions which is meant to help. Hope your carrots survive. I ate my first strawberry yesterdayMy mum wasn’t keen on tidying up our house , I did it ! So I don’t expect her to start suddenly tidying . Thanks @Bikerbeth, my veg have gone bonkers since it’s been cooler , have a huge amount of flies around our carrots so we are expecting them to have been devastated by carrot fly .
Beth = 1 strawberryWe have spring onions and shallots right next to carrots so you have given me a little hope . Even the potatoes has masses of flies around them , they are literally everywhere !
Strawberry ..... sore subject . Hubby was watering a couple of days ago and we both said ooh the one strawberry is almost ready , I was tempted to take it indoors to finish off but didn’t , next thing I see our resident blackbird munching it ! He had lost one of his babies the night before courtesy of a Magpie so we thought it was a small treat for him , but I am a little sore about it .
Think more rain is forecast .
