Morning all. Grey and dull here too 1°

Hope your Mum's Xray is OK Verdun.

Is it you who wants a dog, Clari, or is it your OH?

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.

New Year gardening resolutions

I always mean to hoe the weeds in the veggie garden before they get big, never happens!

The French won't know the difference with mincemeat, but they'll like the brandy!

Busy day again, lunched with son, DIL and baby. Did all the errands and have finished shopping for presents for 3 of my children and their families. Took DIL's bike to be repaired, she thought she'd cycle to work and someone nicked the back wheel. Anti-theft chain was on the front wheel. Périgueux was a nightmare, market day and Christmas shoppers, took me nearly an hour to cross from the west side to the east side and it's not a big town.

OH has gone to choir practice.

Morning all.

Nearly came to blows with my sister earlier this year over brother with Alzheimer's, but it's sorted now - I hope. We are usually best of friends, but that episode hurt a lot. She doesn't speak to brother.

Of to Périgueux to see son and buy more Chrissie presents.

DD, read the posts. Saw you are looking for mincemeat. Never found it here, you have to make your own or buy it in the UK. Ask your OH, or is he going by plane? I would have got you some, I don't have enough left now to give out any more. I get it for friends. Couldn't believe how cheap it was in Tesco.

More Christmas shopping tomorrow. Must do my Christmas cards, but need to write the Christmas letter first.

Glad you had a good time, Chicky.
