Lost Internet this morning, but it's back now (obviously!)

Liri, I send a Christmas letter too, people say they like it but perhaps they are being polite. I like receiving them. I started mine this morning when Internet was off.

Have just put the horses into their winter paddock, great excitement and lots of galloping. Now they are all tucking into grass, though it won't last long as there is hardly any topsoil. It's limestone which is why it's good for winter - less mud. My white horse is brown (rolling in mud) and her mane is knotted (rubbed on tree) but now she's too excited to catch, so it'll have to wait. Farrier coming on Monday for foot trimming.

Happy Birthday Beaus Mum. Hope Beau isn't a cake thief like this naughty fellow!


Grass cutting

If there isn't a frost on the day you cut it and if the ground isn't too wet then you can cut your lawn in winter at a higher than usual setting.

Fidget, that bread and butter pudding sounds yummy.

Fell asleep during Masterchef, woke up for The Apprentice.

Night all.

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

I still have lots to do, especially clearing up the neglected veggie garden, but now it's turned cold and Christmas with all the trimmings is on it's way. 4 children & spouses and 8 grandchildren coming.

I'm sure Dove's too sensible to want to be PM. Can't understand why anyone wants to be PM.

I was one of 6 children so there were others who could visit my mum in the home when I was at my home in France. But if one of us wanted to buy a present we didn't all feel we had to chip in, we all did our own thing. It was lovely on my recent visit to England to meet up with 2 of my brothers (one lives in Scotland and came down south especially) and my sister. I was so glad we were doing it on our own without my mother organising it. Mummy died April 2012. She was lovely, but never really recovered from the death of my father 3 years earlier. I liked being in a big family. But my closest brother died when only 21.
