Hello Forkers in December

We went to an Advent Carol service, lovely singing from the local church choir, then mulled wine and mince pies. We had game pies, runner beans and mange tout peas before we went.

Watched the Blue Planet on iPlayer, will watch Strictly results and Howards End tomorrow.

Morning all.

Glad you've had a great time, Chicky. It seems to have passed quickly. Enjoy the cricket.

Lovely wreaths and posies, Auntie Rach. You have a talented friend, Joyce.

We had a good day in Norwich. Went to the Rembrandt exhibition in the Castle, then a delicious lunch at Côte, a French style brasserie, then I bought a long sleeved nightie in M&S then we went to the theatre to see "How the Other Half Loves, by Alan Ayckbourn which was very funny.

Yes, Dove, we did take the "Park and Ride", so convenient.

Morning all.

I hope the antibiotics work well for Liri's OH, nasty thing to have.

Poor little Cosmos, I hope the op improves his paw, but I expect it will take time.

Off to Norwich again, lunch then theatre this afternoon.

Congratulations Liri! Andrew is a good name and sounds very suitable.

You'll probably all think I'm a bit of a heathen, the older I get the less I listen to music, I listen to classical mostly. When I was young I listened to pop and folk a lot. When I listen to today's pop music there isn't a lot I like.

Yesterday OH bought a bag of sunflower seeds for the birds, but there is nowhere to put them out of reach of cats. We have just been to the local GC and bought a bird table, reduced from £55 to £10 because it blew over in a gale and the roof is slightly damaged, nothing that OH can't fix. He's fixing it now. Also bought suet balls and a hanger for them. Last year I thought it would be daft because we aren't here enough but OH will be back in December and we are both back in January.

OH has just lit the cottage woodburner for the first time, had the cottage almost 2 years and not lit it. Looks very cosy.

Morning all.

Have a lovely birthday, Hosta.

I rather hoped for snow, but for people who go to work it must be a relief. This is a warm cottage, gas heating, and the shop, butcher and doctor are just a short walk away.

We've had snow showers but hasn't settled. Went out for a walk this afternoon but cut it short as the wind was so cold. OH was thinking of lighting the woodburner, then found we hadn't any matches. Didn't feel like going back out to the village shop, had already been for firelighters.

Had a quiet day, done some housework, watched Escape to the Country.

Like the sound of your dresser Raisingirl, must have been a satisfying job.

No proper snow here yet, about 35 mins south of Dove. Wonder if we'll get it?

It’s snowed a bit here too, but hasn’t settled.
