Sorry to hear that Maud, very sad.

I won't be putting my decorations out till Friday. I have nice shiny bright teeth now though. Haven't even got all the pressies yet. Need to shape myself, as they say around here.

OK Rain I just turned lap top on its side

I do love the look of twinkling trees outside. Well done for the video

Oh no - more rain and amber alert (sigh)

Jess said, 'Why you doing that with your head???' Ha ha ha. Nice, Rain!


Norm- thx for that. Have made a note & will ask accordingly. We know that altering daughter's radiator valve did stop the whistle- she couldnt be bothered to go & turn on the hot water tap which is the usual method of stopping the whistle.

OMG have just seen the weather forecast- I thought thursday wasnt going to be soo bad........ I dont want to have to shop on friday, but if needs must... J.


Yes Rain, well done!

It gets worse on my dried pasta stock- have found another packet of rigatoni at back of cuboard, so that makes 3!! No prizes for guessing what type OH will be taking back with him after the hols.... J.



I have got a crick in my neck now-I hope Rain has public liability insurance

Dove has won a prize in the sites Advent comp-but hasn't said what it is-this could be yet another guessing game

Has Dean gone?

 This is my darling Lydia she passed away 12 weeks ago aged 7,  she loved climbing up the Christmas tree,  it was lovely the first couple of days then it all went to hell so it used to get re dressed every few days or so,  so needless to say this year it's not the same without her,  the broken branch is round the back out of sight as I couldn't bring myself to buy a new one as it holds to many memories for me

Yes Geoff, I'm grinning out of the bedroom window.

Jo, I do like the Paul and Mary partnership. Those Chelsea buns looked scummy. Glad to se yu survived the Trafford Centre!

Didn't watch it but read a comment about a Christmas Cake recipe you should have prepared 3 weeks ago?

Geoff (cartoon).  I thought it was a bit late to be thinking about making a pudding too

Here's an idea for you Jo



Nipped back in! How inadequate shall I feel doing my mincepies tomorrow- bigsigh....

Cant say I survived the TC, just nipped in/out to 2 shops. Didnt attempt to park anywhere near to an entrance, just went further down & plenty of spaces. Walk not too far, but no problem. When was sat in cafe you could see cars circling around looking for a space, when loads of spaces on t'other side of one of the top carparks.

Just remembered need to wrap pressies sometime! & sort of plan a menu & shopping list. Joy, roll on January! J.
