Morning all.

Cedric is in the city today too, Dove. Going to pick up some red car touch up paint for me from Halfords and he'll have a wander round as well.

1° here, no frost at 8am.

I'm sorting through  photos to get some developed for the album.

Good luck, punkdoc, hope the visit to the place goes well.

Don't blame her PP! What a beautiful dog.

I thought that Ashton might even win, but that dance just wasn't right. Molly did so much better in the dance off than last night, elegant and graceful.

Strictly is back!

I was surprised too. I agreed with Craig.

Sorry to hear your news, but didn't she do well, 17, unusual for a dog of her type. You must have given her a great life. I still miss my Tigger who died a bit over a year ago.

I was riding my horse when she put her foot in a mole hole and I fell off. Luckily I fell on the mole hill so only bruised and lucky she didn't sprain her fetlock, but she could have done.

The soil from mole hills is temporarily friable but is only the original soil it always was, so if it's clay it will go back to being sticky lumpy clay. It should be in the tunnels not in piles above the ground so it makes uneven lawns. Tunnels under flower beds leave roots hanging in space so the plant dies, usually of drought.

I have the same problem. Another house is shown as having my house's name on Sat Navs, it belongs to the local pharmacist. That's why I had problems with the heating oil man recently, posted it here. He went down the wrong road, which was closed, and made a mess of the new tarmac.

Where is everyone?

I've been in the garden planting spring bedding. Only 2 pots left, but I've run out of fertiliser granules, the ones that last 6 months.

Morning all.

Sun is shining, forecast was rain but I think we had it in the night. Hope it stays fine, lots to do in the garden.

Do you wait until your freezer is empty before defrosting it, Pat? I pull out the drawer and cover them in ice packs and towels and put the contents of the shelves into cool bags with ice packs. Then I fill the freezer with pans of hot water.

The diet is for comfort and health. I had always been around 9 stone before first OH died then I went down to 8 stone after he died Nov. 98. Back up to 9 stone when I got over the misery, then I met 2nd OH. Been wined and dined and he's very appreciative of good food. Went up to over 11 stone. Had to buy new clothes, lost energy (or is that just getting older!), tummy not comfy. Have now lost 10lbs and feel better but still some to go. When we go to Norfolk I put on weight, love real ale and good pub meals.
