 Afties , Back from daughters in one piece. Roads pretty good on the way there and thankfully no more snow. We did spot 2 gritters out and about so maybe they know something we don't.

Love your new name Flo.  One of my favourite birds as well - why do you think I always mention them as just ''long tails'' !

I want to build an igloo now.

Pea whack is cooking .

Somehow, Jess's new winter wooly hat got in with the boil wash I just did. It is all out of shape, and feels 'funny'. How am I going to tell her I wrecked her favourite hat.

Miss Becks

She is not going to be happy. I could blame the washing machine!


Sue H
Just tell her it was poor quality and didn't wash well. Would it now fit a hamster?
Miss Becks

No, the opposite, more like a pumpkin!


Hello Sue 

Becks, I would not be happy either  can you stretch it back when it is damp or has it shrunk?


Still snowing!!!

Igloo has a lid, will photo tomorrow, fell asleep watching A-Z of Gardening,

 Jo come summer - if I remember I should be able to get those seeds. Next door neighbur has one I think.  Remind me

Miss Becks

No kate, I think it is unshapeable now. have stuck it in the dryer anyway. Might be able to iron it into something resembling what it was!


She'll know, they always do and hold a grudge about it for years


Can you unpick it and reknit it?

Jean Genie

Becks, try soaking it in fabric conditioner and then try and pull it back into shape. Never tried this myself but have read it somewhere.

Not freezing here - just been out to collect some rainwater.



If it's stretched could you try sewing a bit of elastic across it to 'pull it tighter' or better still thread very thin elastic around the inside of the rim. If you know someone who's into sewing they should have both, or know where you could get.

Applecake out & cooling on rack still in tin. I now know why it tends to be flat- no Mum I didnt add 4 tablespoonsful of milk this time, more like 3 coz that old spoon not quite a full tablespoon size.

Quorn cottage pie now in oven. Will reheat the last of the redcabbage thing to go with it, plus daughter has already poured 2 glasses of wine from the box!

Bjay- have sort of made note re seeds, but will also keep a look out for some in meantime. Thx.

BTW that snowman funeral... J.

Miss Becks

I use all in one Jean! Too late now. It's in the dryer. It's fate has been set! I'll get her a new one tomorrow.
