Morning all. Happy Birthday, Dove.

Mild and drizzly. My 3 Gertrude Jekyll roses have arrived! Christmas present from OH. One is going in the pot he gave me and two are going in the ground. He gave me compost as well.

Morning all.

Looked at that link Pansyface. I'm a Virgo. It says:

The Virgo horoscope 2017 says that practical, well organized and an absolute perfectionist would be the caption under your picture in the high school yearbook. You’ve got an eye for detail and a special place in your heart for efficiency. That Virgo mind of yours is always whirring along and makes you critical, picky and analytical. You’ll put that extra splash of effort and time in to get things just right.

How come I posted messy bits on that thread and my filing is two years out of date? Son says I have too much clutter. But I am quite good at running charity events, so I've been told.

It has been warmer at last here today, up to 12° and no frost this morning.

I now have a nice new temporary crown from dentist son.

That is a gorgeous cushion, Joyce.

Glad you had a lovely day, Dove, and I hope you enjoy tomorrow.

Gosh, you've worked hard, Hosta. It's all looking great.

Most all.

Most of the accidents I've seen or heard about here are caused by young people. In England the young have more fatal accidents than the old. The safest people are those between 50 and 70. With the old, it's not the lack of knowledge needed for a test, it's slower reactions, especially in built up areas and figures show that they are the over 80s.

Going to see son today to have my tooth repaired and am staying for lunch.

Plant orders for 2017

Have just ordered a load more plug plants from another nursery. Have used them before and everything arrives in a good state of health.  https://www.jardinexpress.fr/

Not all animals. My Border Collie, Tigger (RIP) never stole food. He would look longingly at it and look t me with melting eyes but never took it. Once a French farmer left a joint of venison for me on the little table outside the kitchen door and it dripped blood on the floor. I was out at the SM. When I came home Tigger was sitting there, guarding it, but he hadn't touched it. He had some for supper as a reward.

Mara des Bois are scrummy!

Hurray for the rock, hope we get photos.

Back from the nursery school party. We all sat on mini chairs around a low table in the classroom - Mummies, a couple of Daddies and a couple of Grannies, some older brothers and sisters and the littlies. The cakes the children had helped make in the morning were Galette des Rois, big frangipane tarts, they were very good, lots of almondy frangipane and we had fruit drinks too. Small grandson and I had two slices each, don't know how he managed, I felt quite full and he asked for a third slice! Didn't get it though.
