The super cushion I have bought to turn the Ercol chair into a fully padded easy chair

Big Ted thinks I have got it for him !

Oh dear ~ whenever he gets the chance, Louis clambers back into "his" chair !

Here he is again ~ whenever he can while I'm out of the room Louis sneaks back into "his new chair" !!

Louis ~ a bear of very little brain but much-loved nonetheless !

Ah ~ the perfect chair for a bear !

It certainly does seem to be made to measure !

Looking down on my small green glade from bedroom window

Wow ! my green heaven ! Created over 25 years from what was a builder's dump !

This was my small plot 20 years ago before the Lambs gave me £500 to get it cleared ~ Steve Little turned it into a garden and over the past year Richard Eshelby has done his magic on it !

A May Morning in my Green Glade

  Oh Lordy !   simplesite who provide me with this blogging site say I have used the full capacity available ~ 340 pages ~ so now must start a SECOND blog but maybe some people will still be interested in this first one ~ I must consult simplesite HELP team ~ I'll keep you all posted ~ particularly disappointing as I approach a quarter of a million visits / visitors !!

Big Ted or Louis is called after my Mother Innes Louie Angus who was called after Robert Louis Stevenson, a great friend of her father David Angus and a fellow student at Edinburgh University from 1874 ~ in her last years, in Castle House Care Home and sorely bewildered, Louis Bear was a constant companion of our Mother and was with her at the very end after which he came back to me in Whitby.

I am in the same position. Amazingly, your case R(IS)1/93 - CIS/270/1991 is being used against me. Clearly, it got more complicated. Can I quote your blog? Mike
