What a chatty lot you've all been while I was out! All the sausage rolls have gone.

What a lovely family, Fritillary. My 4 children, spouses and 8 grandchildren were all with me for Christmas. I've got photos, but not a lovely group one like that. I married at 21, he died, heart attack when he was 53, I was 47, but some of you know that already. But I was very lucky and found my 2nd OH about 10 years later.

You are very talented Perki. Have you ever made lasting sculptures? Pottery?

Good luck with your move, BM, how exciting! But a lot of work. Where are you going?

Bit milder today, 3°, clouds are clearing and sun is starting to shine.

Off to make loaf of bread and some sausage rolls for the event we are going to tonight.

We are going to Suffolk for our holiday in July. Used to go to Southwold to stay with my grandparents there when I was a child. Want to show OH and visit gardens. Hope I'm not boring anyone, I've talked about it here already! Not this thread though.

DD had snow and sun today, I'm only 45 mins from her and we had neither! Cold, bleak, cloudy.

Recorded Wolf Hall as OH was at choir practice and we want to watch it together.

This is so moving, must be so difficult for Lyn. Have you contacted MacMillan nurses, Lyn? They were great when my father was dying, but he didn't have cancer, he had a brain haemorrhage and was in a coma. They were so helpful with their support for us when he was dying. 

Verdun's Mum reminds me of my Mum when she got frail.

I found DG less irritating talking about wild gardens than he was when younger and designing expensive gardens.

Snow candles look lovely and so simple to do, unlike the fantastic hand! Now I just need some snow - but I'd rather not!

How to remove HUGE shrub

We did what obelixx said to start with, then we used the garden tractor mower to pull it out. Make sure you leave some trunk behind to pull on, whether manually or with a machine.

 Have others, but getting tatty, Wintersong. You remembered what the package was! I've been repeating myself.
