Comments on: A very moving tribute http://headrambles.com/2010/02/28/a-very-moving-tribute/ The rambling thoughts of an Irish Grandad Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:22:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: pedantic paulo1 http://headrambles.com/2010/02/28/a-very-moving-tribute/#comment-23149 Mon, 01 Mar 2010 23:38:20 +0000 http://www.headrambles.com/2010/02/28/a-very-moving-tribute/#comment-23149 The problem with these late life changes is that a pavlovian sort of conditioning sets in over time and you may want to put a stout lock on the coal hole door ( assuming that it is equipped with one, a door that is) for the first couple of months just to break that dear woman from homing back to the dark and familiar. A lock on the garden shed, once she’s safely inside and settled down for the night, for the same couple of months should complete the transition nicely. But expect occasional lapses, especially on stormy nights. Nothing like a cosy coal hole in a thunderstorm I’ve always found.

Also I ordered some extra coal, and realised I needed the space.

Now seriously, what did you do wrong?
