Morning all. -5°.

This afternoon we are going to a friend's Memorial Service. She lived here in France but went to her family in England when her cancer was bad, so the funeral was in England in November. Today would have been her birthday.

My flower arranging isn't very good, just bunches of flowers in vases, but I think they are pretty anyway.

I have a cutting bed in my veg garden but I grow mostly annuals in it. I have 3 Gypsophila perennials though and several of the flowers mentioned above. There is also a trellis for Sweet Peas.

I had the bug in Norfolk, but I can't blame the Queen as I brought it from France. But I found lots of people in Norfolk had already had it.

Enjoyed Call the Midwife. Just watched Apple Tree Yard, I'm not sure that I like it.

My OH stayed awake too. Sometimes he won't watch it because of all the screaming mothers and the babies being born, but he thought tonight's episode was good.

Sounds a fairly sensible thing to do, Liri  Especially if it's as cold as it's been here.

We are having chicken and mushroom vol au vents from the left over roast chicken we had on Friday. With Brussels sprouts and runner beans. Then I'll make chicken noodle soup with the carcass.

I've spent some time on the sofa with the latest plant catalogue.

For me, it's a good TV night, Midsomer Murders, Call the Midwife then a new one, Apple Tree Yard that I thought I'd give a try. But they are more women's subjects than men's.

I wonder why there are so many silver cars? But OH bought one because it was on special offer and the last one in the showroom. Mine is red, red is my favourite car colour.

I have an old sleeping bag for when I sit on the sofa. I've got to the state that when I visit people and sit on their sofas I feel something is missing! I shall be in it this afternoon.

Sounds colder in Suffolk than here this morning, for a change. Getting warmer here -5° this morning, but it's grey and cloudy.

Sorry about your back, Wonky. Good thing you aren't still doing that heavy gardening job. That was a good series, I saw it.

Looking forward to Call the Midwife.

More fabulous photos!

It's not the driving so mind I'd mind, I'm used to long journeys - but on French roads which are straighter with less traffic than English ones. But 2 hours, maybe 3, is the most I could walk. Fairy must be pretty fit. I used to go out hacking for 3- 4 hours and walk 1 hour but my horse did the rest! Now the right knee can't take it.
