  • Morning all. Grey and wet here. For some reason I kept waking up every couple of hours in the night and still feel tired this morning. When I go out for a newspaper I'll drop some of last nights stew and some lemon curd off for one of the in-laws who has hurt her back and isn't getting g around too well and then I might just have a fairy light hunt as I'm sure I treated myself to some new ones last January. Usually when I see lights and decorations this early I can be heard muttering Bah Humbug and moaning about the commercialisation of Christmas. This year they are just cheering me up and symbolising hope........I just need to hear "White Christmas" now and see "National Lampoons Christmas Vacation" yet again.

    • Morning, we too have more wet, but those strong winds have died away thankfully, got wet filling the bird feeders, got a parcel due in a bit, so won't be going far today, take care all.
      If I'm not on here, I'm probably fishing.

      • Good morning all.
        Cold and breezy here.
        After 6 weeks of lockdown our pitch and putt course is open.
        So, off outto play in the cold.
        It's definitely a wolly jumper day.
        Have a good Saturday and stay safe.

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

          Have fun, bramble. Good to be out and about these days and socialising, even (and sometimes especially) when it's a bit brisk and blowy.

          • I have done some housework this morning and delivered the stew and lemon curd. The elderly in-law was moving around much easier and without a stick so I've tried to convince her to make herself a Yorkshire pudding to go with it. I know she can and she's got flour, eggs and milk and she is bored so why not? I don't think I've convinced her though. It is sad when people stop cooking for no good reason. Another elderly friend has really taken to cookery since lockdown. He is a recent widower and started because he had to really but now also enjoys it.

            • Back home now and watching the rugby.
              It was so good to be out and about again and meeting up with my sister.
              We had a good game and a catch up,
              Looking forward to watching Strictly come dancing later tonight.

              Thanks Snoop, and yes it was fun.

              • Evening, no frost, snow, fog or rain here today, so really just a normal cold winters day.

                Greenishfing I think a lot of people have taken to cooking and baking this year mostly for something to do while they've been stuck indoors. Once they've tasted home cooking and baking I doubt many will go back to store bought packets.

                • Evening all.

                  Did a lot of domestic stuff today, including giving the sitting room a thorough "into every corner" vacuum and polish, ready to put up the tree. Then carried all the books and the bookcase upstairs,so I could move the table into its place to make room for the tree. Then got out the ladder and climbed into the loft for the tree and decorations. There are 6 big boxes. I don't use them all, but really can't bear to throw any out, including the two foot high snowman I made years ago (anyone remember Neil Buchanan and "Art Attack"?). Also 2 boxes of pine cones, all glittered.

                  After that, I took the rest of the day off.

                    • Morning

                      We've just finished breakfast Flo bacon, eggs and toms on a sourdough oatcake. Drizzle and mist here so unless it changes I won't be going far today.

                      Mothhawk I've got pine cones as well as decorated egg boxes in in my stored box plus some weird looking Santa's.

                      • Morning all.

                        Busyish day ahead, with plenty of cooking and a bit of baking if I can find time and if my ageing ankle lets me. Shame they can't do ankle replacements!

                        Anyway, bright blue but perishing cold at the moment. Going to be miserable grey and even perishinger colder shortly. So best make the most of the sun while it's here.

                        Have a good day, everyone.

                          They do do ankle replacements, but I don't know how successful they are. Grey, cold and rainy here yet again. I won't be going far unless I have to.

                            • Good morning all.
                              Well we have a blanket of foggy frost this morning and a temp of minus 3.
                              It looks like fairyland buts absolutely freezing.
                              An indoor day today methinks.

                              Lottie, you have been through so much,
                              You are a strong Woman and you will get through this.
                              My OH always photocopies all,documents before he posts them.
                              Have a good day 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.
