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.

Busy day so far. Took OH's car for MOT, then went to town to get Carol Service booklets printed, supermarket for groceries and toyshops for Chrissie pressies for 7 out of 8 grandchildren. Other gc's present is past the other end of town, will do it tomorrow after I've babysat for grandbaby, also will look at the big GC for Christmas trees.

I hope problem with sister is able to be resolved, DD.

It's a big worry......

They are just right for growing in pots, pretty flowers too, but must be kept fed and watered. I'm not sure hanging baskets would be deep enough though.

Morning all.

Edd, I have 3 blueberries bought 2 years ago. Planted in pots 30cm tall and 30 cms diameter at the top, narrower at bottom. They are getting too big for their pots and I am about to repot them, 40cm tall and 37cm diameter.

It's a big worry......

I hope he hasn't forgotten any of us.

Congratulations Edd, if you aren't joking. Hope you wouldn't rather it were a joke. Look after Mrs. Edd. Will it be your second? Easier with two, I found.

Friend's new puppy was tiny and adorable, so cute. 10 weeks. Crossed with a mini Australian collie. Want one, but OH said no. Have a Border Collie already. I'm sure he'd like the company.

Much colder here today, only 2° this morning. Got warm mucking out the horses' field shelter.

Morning all.

Like Clari, I must be the hibernating sort. I sleep longer and better in the winter, I prefer snuggling under the winter duvet, can't sleep under the light summer sheet. Don't like summer nights when it stays over 20° outside.

A friend is coming this morning to pick up things I bought her in England and to show me her new puppy.

Must mend the electric fence in the winter paddock where the strimming man cut it and need to bang in some fence posts. The horses have nearly finished their hay in the summer field shelter.

Are there seeds that don't like very cold storage?
