  • 3°C here, but we are supposed to get a glimpse of the sun later today. Got to go and have blood tests this morning and I am such a wimp. I got the grory hop done yesterday but I still haven't wrapped any presents, other jobs keep getting in the way. I actually like wrapping presents ..... maybe today. Everybody seemed happy and smiley yesterday. It actually felt a bit Christmassy. I even bought some new decorations and have put them out and posted a couple of cards that I'd forgotten. I've arranged to deliver presents and meet one of my sisters on Christmas Eve.

      • Good morning all. It's the dullest morning with all the lights on.
        Winter solstice here at Newgrange but will be a disappointment with no sun,
        Must go into town to chase up a book that's proving to be elusive.
        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.

        • Morning all.

          You're ahead of the game, Jay22! Hope you had a good time. Sounds like you deserve a lie-in.

          All good here, but perishing cold. No fog at the moment, but thick cloud. The fog will be back tomorrow, apparently...

          Mr Snoop has taken Frankie off today to be snipped this morning. I'd thought we'd have to wait till well into January (after Epiphany), but no. Only his second trip in a cat box (the first one was to come here), so he was surprisingly easy to get in it. Don't think it will be so easy next time. Anyway, fingers crossed it has the desired effect.

          I've got work on the go today, but am thinking of telling one client that that's it from tomorrow till the new year. I had a bit of a reaction to the Astra Zeneca jabs - arthritis flare-up - but the Pfizer booster shot has set my joints aching something rotten.

          Right, time to get the kettle on the go. Anyone for a brew?

          Have a great day, everyone.
          Location: north-east Spain, where the sun is too hot, the rain too torrential, the hail too big, the wind too windy and the snow too deep. Last frost: usually mid-April, sometimes first week in May. First frost: mid-October.

          • Back from the doctor's surgery. Why I am such a wimp I just don't know. I never felt a thing. I'm actually fine if I don't see the syringe. If I do I just start to panic.
            Right best foot forward, present wrapping next. I got more chocolates in the post today, but I've stopped Mr GF from opening them.....so far.

            • It really is starting to feel a lot like Christmas. I've wrapped all my presents now and enjoyed doing it. I was sitting on the lounge floor wrapping when there was a knock at the door. By the time I had got to my feet and got to the door (it took a while, I must be getting old) there was a big box on the doorstep and a van driving away. Inside the box a beautiful bouquet of flowers. It is just a great shame that I am not more talented in flower arranging.

              • Afternoon, our daughters just left after doing the prezzie swap only one gift to deliver then we're sorted.
                Hope you soon feel better Snoop xx it's odd how people have different reactions to jabs.
                ​​​​​​Poor Frankie I hope he does sulk after being snipped.

                • Good evening, have been busy the past two days, with dogs to walk, medicines to collect, and shopping to do, our granddaughter has covid so that's the full family isolating, OH still in severe pain and wasn't to happy when I said doing a bit of hoovering might help her now ensuring that I stay out the way of the walking stick she is using​​​​​​, and just to add, it looks like I have a puncture in one of my tyres will need to check it out tomorrow fortunately I do have a spare wheel in the boot, the new mattress gets delivered tomorrow OH still doesn't know about it, but if I told her it would just give her an extra day to get on to me for bu​​​​​ying it​​​​​​. Keep safe, protect yourself and others​​​​​​. Goodnight

                  • Rary, I'm not sure if you are a hero or not...... Definitely a hero for the mattress but as a past sufferer of severe back pain the thought of using a vacuum cleaner would have made me want to put the end of the solid vacuum hose in a very inappropriate place in somebody's body!!

                    Be very careful!!

                    Nobody, including my doctor, realised that I was in as much pain as I was until he got the results of an x-ray that, as he said, he didn't expect.
                    I'm sure I don't have to tell you......just be sympathetic........or suffer the consequences.

                            • Good morning, doesn't feel quite so cold as previous mornings recently, had a look at my car tyres all look OK but will check them out in the daylight, too easy to lose a cap if you drop it when it's dark, think I will get out to the garden after as I need to move aster plants and plant some daffodil bulbs also waiting on a delivery of two doz. phlox plants, so that will keep me busy for an hour or two, well enjoy the day keep safe and keep smiling

                              • Mornin n’alln’all

                                Ta muchly for the warming tea MH….very much appreciated. By ‘eck lass, you make a decent cuppa

                                Looks like we have your chill this morning Rary- -3C at the moment and a really heavy frost
                                I’ve just been watching a bluetit drinking melted ice off the window frame. Poor things.
                                Even the bowl of chook water had 1” ice on the top, so there’s now a bowl of warm water outside for the wild birds and fresh water for the chooks.

                                Off out in a sec for a Drs appt then on for the final grory hop of the year. I got most things yesterday so this is to another shop for a quick trolly dash of about 6 things, so it won’t take long.

                                Keep warm and safe peeps…nearly there!
