I'm with the rest of you bookworms.  I read the last few pages of a good book really slow because I don't want it to end.  Am enjoying Peter James' series about  DI Roy Grace set in Brighton and the best thing is there are quite a few of them so don't feel too bad when one ends as there's another book waiting.

Here's Natalie in suspended animation:

Caz!! Is it like that all day??

17/11/2012 at 15:55

Pam-didn't buy the book-I worked for a book distribution company at the time and we had a visit from the man himself

Becks - it used to have a playmate which died a few years ago but she was just as miserable then.  She only gets excited if you go up close to the tank and I think that's just because food might be coming her way!  She can stay in that position for ages - think she's doing yoga for goldfish

Where do goldfish go when they die?

Jo there are squirrels but I think its more likely to de the daft woodpigeons that haven't realised they can't get heads, bodies on feeders. Or rather they have realised, forgotten and then gone back again, rather like goldfish really

Will sort it out tomorrow.

Ours went down the loo.

Is that a trick question Geoff??

Caz, you should balance a ball on it's nose!

Just being silly

Toy cull is not going well. If I hear 'I still play with that!' again, when I've just pulled an item from the bottom of the abyss I'll scream! I'm going to have to revert to sneaky tactics.

 can just see me & Natalie on BGT.

Becks -  Have you tried the "Santa brings lovely new toys to kind little girls who send their old toys to all the poor children who have no toys at all" tactic yet?

We buried our dead goldfish in the garden and put a little plant there too.

You could give a reward for every toy thrown out-

-how about a puppy?-

Ha Ha, Geoff.

What's on Jess's Christmas list, Becks? Tell her Santa won't have room to leave her any more toys if she dosen't have a clear out.

Inside that copy of Garden News there was abird feeder with a goldfinch and another type of bird. What is it please?

Not certain. It looks like a finch of some kind, from its bill. Possibly a female greenfinch?

I'm sure Natalie could make the big time. Pudsie didn't do so bad.

Jess would get rid of all her toys for one of those.

OH's phone keeps ringing mine- oops, not meant to happen apparently. He has got big fingers..... J.

Ha ha Pottiepam - I see you've had success with the Santa tactic too .

I'm feeling very envious of all these lovely dogs on here lately  (green with envy not feeling sick!)

Just nipped out to take this photo

That's lovely Bjay. Looks like we'll have a fine day tomorrow.

Morning,all--just sitting here with coffe and catching up on posts. The wind has been howling all night with gusts up to 80 kph; but seems to be abating now. So far, so good--still have power, and the wood fire is on.

Caz--do love Peter James;have read them all, though. Waiting for the next one!

Khan looks like a sweetie--my dogs would freak if I attempted to dress them up! So undignified.I prefer larger breeds, as can't stand yappers.But not too large, as they have shorter life spans.  Both of mine are rescued dogs; Border collie crosses.

Knitting With Dog Hair--I actually made a hat years ago when I had a Samoyed. It was wonderfully soft, but labour intensive.
