            A lovely photo and you look well FC ... but I think a slimmer you than I remember from previous photos? :scratch: And just how cute is Fletch? :doggieshmooze: His fur is fantastic and a lovely colour (a bit like my hair :rolleyespink:). Keep up the relaxation!

                @Fat Controller I am just now seeing this thread. I was happy to read that you had this nasty episode because it caused the medics to positively identify a chronic ongoing issue. And I hope they fix you up!

                Glad to hear you're resting and letting your body purge the clots and mend. :dbgrtmb:

                  Thank you @CanadianLori :) Lovely to see you too - I seem to have been missing you lately, or have you been busy? Hope life is treating you well.

                    @Fat Controller I have been just fine and thank you for asking. I have been very busy. I had clients all suddenly want my services and it was delightful work as most of the jobs were redoing outdoor furniture cushions and things like that. Lots of colourful fabrics marched through my door. It is so nice to see people catching on to adding colour to their fixtures as we have such a short window of good weather for being outside and frankly, those beige or taupe or grey lounge sets were really getting boring!

                    I finished up the in house work last Friday so have had two days of playing in the garden. Planting out seedlings- about 100 or so - and weeding.

                    I hope that you get well quickly and I read about you having a good day out in the garden. In the meantime, rest up. And if you're lounging outside, please make sure you've got your thong on the right way round :heehee:

                      Oh that is fantastic! So hard to get work with the way things are, so I am really chuffed you've been busy.

                      I am wanting some fresh air, so will be going outside to put some Busy Lizzie seedlings into trays (I cheated and ordered them, but they look not too bad to be fair) - its a tad chilly here for a thong though :biggrin:

                        @Fat Controller Bloody hell FC, only just spotted this thread now, hope you feel better soon, mate! :grphg: Glad to see you're getting some doggy care and am also pleased to see you've lost some weight, you look really well because of it despite recent health issues. :)

                        Well, you've got that lovely patio area sorted out recently, time to make good use of it relaxing as often as you can... you never know, we might even get an entirely sunny afternoon at some point in 2021! :heehee:

                        Nick

                            I hope your weather is better than ours! It was lovely and sunny all morning (whilst I had a meeting :sad:) and now it's persisting it down! :hate-shocked: Although you could have an extra shower in it, so take your soap and towel. :heehee:

                                Short, sharp and thundery here. On the bright side, Fletch couldn't care less about thunder
