Car didn't take the MOT. Needs 2 new tyres and a ball joint. New appointment for Wednesday.

Couldn't find roofing felt for OH's shed. Searched 2 DIY places and 1 builders merchants.

Have bought Seville oranges to make marmalade.

Tippng with rain and cold.

Morning all. It was trying to snow this morning. Stopped now. Car going for MOT and I'm going to the fabric shop to get blackout curtain lining for bedroom curtains and uncovered cushions for the sitting room. I'll cover them with the left over curtain fabric.

Also need roofing felt for OH's shed. A plank of wood and some roofing felt blew off in the gales last week.

Proposal on the local gardening show!

 Just found this thread. Congratulations Tootles, what a lovely way to start the day.

Asparagus growing early

I'd leave them. You aren't meant to harvest them in the first year anyway. More will grow later. Leave them too.

Any tips for growing rice?

New business opportunity, David. Rent out ice skates and serve mulled wine.

DD - should have gone to my son, the dentist! But I hope the infection clears up quickly, horrid when things aren't right with your teeth.

Topbird, I looked up the link you sent on Suffolk churches and found the Norfolk one in our village. Looks very interesting. We couldn't visit it though because we weren't there on a Sunday and it's closed in the winter months.

They have changed the forecast since this morning, just looked again, rain instead of snow.

Lesley, M&S delivered the bedding just when they said they would and IKEA delivered the bed - all very comfy, but the towels will be better once they've been washed. Washing machine is still in Eastbourne until the removal in early February.

We've been out all day. Lunched with good friends, lots of chatting. A lot of fog on the roads. Was -4° this morning.

Forecast says we may have snow tomorrow, just when I've booked the car in for the Contrôle Technique (MOT).

Looked up that brasserie Dove. Sounds normal to me because it's French!

Thanks Fairygirl, gosh that looks chilly!

Off to cook salmon etc for dinner.

Hello all. We are back in France. Just as cold here as in Norfolk. But the cottage is warmer than this house because it's smaller and has low ceilings and efficient gas heating.

I hope Dove and Topbird have had good days out.

Hello Ginger.

I still have a cold, the one that started on 1st Jan., much better, but coughing.
