Morning all. No wind here. Good luck Hosta and hubby.

Shall make chestnut stuffing for the goose and prepare veggies today and do some housework. Looks like a lovely gardening day though. I'll do the guinea fowl stuffing, which has some sausage meat, tomorrow.

Found it, used the Wintersong method.

Enjoyed the pizza, but had to reheat it. Pizza man left his employee in charge for 30 mins and he got in a muddle and had given our pizzas to someone else. Luckily the someone else came back with ours, while the chap was having a mild panic attack and rang the boss to come to tell him what to do!

Just had mulled wine, but we are an hour ahead of you. Going to get pizzas from man in the village, so don't have to cook tonight. Lost a pound on diet day yesterday, about to put it on again

That will keep you busy for a bit, but it should be fun. Glad you are having a lawn, sets off the beds and plants.

Dove, have you looked in the shed or wherever your OH keeps things? He may have put his nails in them. That's the sort of thing that happens in this household.

Cleaned dining room, it was cold in there, rads were off. Turned them on and will put up decorations later. Now de-frosting the small freezer in the larder. Haven't ironed yet as OH said he would light the woodburner in the sitting room, but he forgot, cold there too. Kitchen is now too hot, from boiling water in pans to put in the de-frosting freezer!

Went shopping this morning, all is bought for Christmas lunch. It was bedlam.

Have cleaned the sitting room and hung up some bunches of greenery with red ribbons. It was a lovely day, should have been gardening.

OH is having smoked haddock tonight, I am having salad with a few prawns, it's a 2 day of the 5/2 diet. I'd lost half a stone, then put a bit on again when we went to Norfolk.

How sad for them Steve, I hope they have good insurance.

I was wondering about leaving the goose in a slow oven for a long time. I had to laugh at you not switching on the oven, Jo! Has anyone any good tips for cooking a goose?
