Thank you for that info, Punkdoc, interesting. I trained as a nurse long ago and we were told that if you eat a varied diet, including fresh fruit and veg, there is no need to take vitamins. Extra vitamins don't make any difference.

Morning all.

Going to a craft fair (English) near Brantome this morning. Hope to find some stocking pressies for my grown up children who don't want to give up stockings. Each adult buys a little pressie for each other adult and big red skiing socks are put in front of the woodburner with the grandchildren's socks. Usually I collect little things on my travels, but I didn't this year. It's my turn to have the family this year, 10 adults, 6 children, 2 babies.

I was a poorly peeps, but I'm nearly better

Please comment, Punkdoc, you probably know a lot more than us.

Been asleep in front of telly. Going to bed. Night all.

What are your favourite native flowers?

I love English bluebells and their scent. Also cowslips, on the thin limestone soil here there are loads in the spring. We have lots of wild orchids too.

I'm bunged up too, GG and coughing. Trouble is colds are viruses and they haven't found a cure yet. Spent the afternoon weeding and planting more violas, tulips and forget-me-nots. Taking so long as the weeding and clearing needs doing first. But it has been really mild today, although windy.

But GG if your ears hurt then insist the Doc has a good look, could be a secondary bacterial infection needing antibiotics.

That is exactly what I want, but with gas burners!

DD, have you looked on French sites, such as Darty? What sort of cooker? I would love a new range, like Falcon, but they are so expensive. I have a French make of range which was on a special offer, hate it. No proper grill. Oven too small.

Christmas Door Garland/Wreath

I have a bought wreath, but I make up bunches of greenery from the garden to decorate the house.

Morning all. Coughing. Bother.

Hope you like the new neighbours, DD and I hope their deer are securely fenced. Very good at destroying gardens, as I found out to my cost!

Very windy, my Border Collie doesn't like wind.

Never heard of Black Friday. Can't be a French thing.
