No fog here! No clouds, and the sun is out  Just finishing my tea and then I'm off to get dressed and then off to work 

Catch up with you all later.

Glad you had a good day Dove

Evening all 

Well, today turned out nice, which was a shame as I was indoors at work  

Pa under gardener came and did the grass. Left the cuttings behind though so OH under gardener has offered to rake it up tomorrow so I don't traipse grass through the house  Only lost one daff to the lawn mower cable so can't be bad, and the snowdrops are all still in one piece! Hurrah!

Garlic bread and mac cheese for tea tonight - yummy 

Welcome to the gang Steve

Just enjoying the sun on my lunch break, and feeling bad for doing so as it sounds like Bill is having our winter! It must seem like it will never end

Morning all  Quick check in before it's socks and shoes time.

Have a lovely day Dove (if you have a sneaky check in) 

Chicky, have a lovely meal tonight 

Fairy, nothing nicer than to wake up to birdsong.

Right, best get off. . . 

Before I go though, hope your plants turn up fit and well Verd

Thanks Mike. You are right, I thought 'Alpine = small' oops!  When I visit the nursery where I bought it I'll have a look for others. Will think about planting elsewhere before the sink, a good idea. I quite like the glazed look of the sink, and my 'soil' is half grit to aid on drainage. It is also surrounded by loads of other different pots, some with colour, some terracotta so it's kinda hidden, whilst providing a contrast 

Thanks for the tip Angela.

Gg put a load of picks on earlier and explained at the end that she got hit in the throat when her loppers bounced off a branch (I think I remember that right ) Well done on self control Tracey 

Chicky, if you sneak a peek later, meant to wish you Happy Birthday to pass on to Chicklet!  Don't believe Chicklet is of a driving age, you are only 27 and so not possible!!
