    ^Congratulations to you and your husband, Bramble. Hope you have a lovely day.

    All good here. Mr Snoop about to wash up, but there's not much as we had a low effort day yesterday and I tried to keep on top of it as I went along. There'll be a lot more tomorrow...

    Have a nice day everyone.

      Morning All

      A bit damp and dank out there this morning, but as I not venturing anywhere today it can do what it wants!

      Home alone today which is very peaceful and nice at times as I neither get in anybody else's way and nobody neither mine!

      Will be having a very relaxing day going through my seed stash, making lists and placing a few orders and my onions will be sown at some point

      Sat in my newly awarded PJ's Santa brought yesterday and on the brand new settee we bought a good few months back as most of the time I am geared up in my work togs and dear not for fear of getting it dirty

      So wishing all a very relaxing, pleasant and peaceful "Boxing Day" what ever you get upto.

      Have fun!

          Just had phone call from roofing contractor wanting to point the chimney stack tomorrow.
          He must be skint after Christmas

          I've only waited for 2 months so didn't want to knock him back.

          The beef instead of turkey was a good idea for Christmas dinner. A least there/s no half devoured splay legged turkey lying on the kitchen bench this year.


          Just had beef and chips to finish it off and it was tasty to the last!

                    Congratulations Bramble! We enjoyed yesterday out for the meal - starter and dessert were brilliant, but bits missing from the main - anyway no mess for any of us and very relaxed. MIL went home today, so I get a bit of peace now. Merry Christmas All

                      Thank you all for the kind wishes.
                      Yes Rary, he probably does deserve a medal, but we all have to serve our time one way or another.

                      And when your back stops aching,
                      And your hands begin to harden.
                      You will find yourself a partner,

                            Mornin n'alln'all

                            Many congrats Bramble!

                            Not quite sure what today will bring but yesterday late afternoon was rather interesting

                            We live on a very quite back road which actually makes up a circuit from the local village.
                            As it's stunningly pretty here we have quite a few locals who take the 40-90 minute walk (depending on how fit you are!!)

                            Yesterday I heard a lot of voices and dogs barking which is most unusual so , being nosy, I went and looked out of the window.
                            Lo and behold (note festive phrase!)... there were about 10 people walking their dogs but the Alsatian (barking frantically) was being head butted by a large horned nanny goat!
                            A young kid was skitting around clearly very frightened.

                            It appeared that the nanny and kid had decided to walk with the, for the past 15 minutes and nothing the dog walkers could do would persuade them otherwise.

                            Very bizzarly they complained to us that they had followed them out from a nearby wood and wouldn't go home and they would be a danger on the road!

                            We had no idea about them so ushered them into our enclosed field/garden/potager to try and sort out where they belonged.(yes..our veggie patches)

                            OH dashed up to the woods to check out a fishing cabin area we knew about and saw it had been fenced off and a billy goat was tethered inside. The gates were closed so goodness knows how the goats had jumped out, but they clearly belonged there.

                            So there we were at dusk walking 2goats along the lanes back into the woods.

                            A very unexpected Boxing Day event or what?!

                            A happy ending eh?

                            What was amazing was the power the nanny had, and particularly the force she was head butting the Alsatian. Clearly bravely protecting her baby!

                            Lets see what today brings!
