      • Mornin n"alln"all

        Porridge for breakfast..yum!

        I need to crack on with finishing the edging on a blanket I"m posting over to the uk....hopefully by Friday so it arrives in time for Xmas.

        The Xmas trees are nearly decorated but I"m very disappointed in the new Xmas lights I bought...they are far too bright! It hurts yr eyes when you look at them! I was hoping once in the tree they might be better but they are deffo too bright. How frustrating is that!

        We had no frost this morning - just lots of splashy stuff, although yesterday"s frost was thick and heavy and actually looked rather festive!

        Will pop in later- enjoy your day peeps!

        • Morning FF, morning all.

          Hope you're not feeling too frazzled, Nicos.

          Rained in the night and a bit more is possibly due at lunchtime. But right now, the sun is shining through the clouds. Lovely light.

          Got a relatively easy day ahead of me. If I put my mind to it, I could have everything out the way by lunchtime. Doubtless I'll find something I can fiddle-faddle about with! I'm a terrible procrastinator.

          Hope you all have a lovely day.

          Edited to add: Morning, Nicos. You snuck in ahead of me. Frazzle over by the sound of it, but sorry about the tree lights.

          • Ha!...I thought I heard you clattering around in the kitchen Snoop!

            I"m actually getting really excited...not just about Xmas but the fact that our "van" is arriving next week.
            We"ve been researching all sorts of things about converting it into a camper...a really exciting project!
            I doubt we"ll start it until the New Year but we can measure up and get things ordered.
            We already had a porta potty and a fridge/ freezer....
            ...the solar panel and leisure battery have arrived..and the omnia stove top oven -sort of feels like Santa is delivering early!
            The insulation was delivered to the garage we bought it from and they have kindly bunged it in the back.
            I"m stupidly excited about it!!!!

            Hopefully it"ll be finished before the planting season arrives.

            • Good morning all.
              Dull and misty day so far.
              No plans for the day but there is plenty to keep me busy.
              Nicos, that all sounds very exciting, you must keep us up to date.
              Snoop, I eouldnt mild a bit of that dundhi r.
              For the last ten years we have been spending the month of November in Spain, it really shortens our winter.
              Have a good dsy all,

              And when your back stops aching,
              And your hands begin to harden.
              You will find yourself a partner,
              In the glory of the garden.

              • Morning, we have one of those rather dank and dark morning, it's not dry, but it's not really wet either, farmers ploughed the stubble field, which is a shame both for the wildlife, but also he's pinched my walking spot lol.
                If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

                • I actually, for the first time since March, went in a clothes shop today. I haven't bought any clothes or footwear at all this year. I am sandal-less and had nearly got to the stage of being knickerless too. Sandals will have to wait for new stock but at least I won't have to accept my husband's kind offer of wearing his boxer shorts.
                  At some point I will have to brave a homeware shop as we seem to have broken more than our fair share of crockery during the lockdowns and the rug, shower curtain, and assorted other bits all need replacing.

                            Thats fantastic news Lottie!!! What a wonderful early Xmas pressie eh?

                            Lots of sploshy stuff here too but I'm happy to stay indoors as I've loads of Xmassy emails to write.
                            Might just open a bottle of fizz later and do them infront of the fire....that'd be nice and cozy wouldn't it?

                            I don't send Xmas cards any more - just emails and phone calls nearer the time but I do miss sitting there writing them with a Xmas film on the telly

                            Weekend tomorrow already! Wow, that quickly arrived.
                            Might nip to market as it opens before peeps arrive. I 'need' cheese and fish.

                              • Sorry for the late arrival today. I see it's been all go in my absence. Hope Mr is back home now and enjoying a proper cuppa and a piece of cake, LD.

                                Out this morning at the crack of dawn for a big shop. That's it now, apart from veg, till after Christmas, I reckon. Possibly till after the new year. Bought some nice wine too. So all sorted.

                                Could do with a nap now, to be honest, after all the excitement of spending actual money.

                                Hope you all have a lovely rest of the day.
