I have also almost no hay fever this year, and am wondering whether pollution is a factor. It’s usually crippling (and has landed me in hospital before). I think there are other factors, but it’s ...

Done all that, and more. Bizarrely, she was quite happy to go up and shovel compost in the cold, but now it’s a case of planting pumpkins and a bit of weeding in the sunshine, she’s a nightmare to ...
