Just read back. Busy doing Christmassy things today, the tree is up and the cards are arranged. Last cards have been sent. Christmas lunch is in the freezer. Washed up all the glasses from the Carol service.

Glad Wonky is on the mend, 'flu is horrid.

Don't worry about the baby Lily P, 4 days late is nothing, positively normal.

Very smart poles Fairy.

Strictly is back!

Fabulous final. Danny was always my favourite but I don't mind Ore winning. They were all great.

Lovely bird photos, I can never get close enough and my camera doesn't have a good enough zoom.

Here is my garden looking gloomy in winter, but when I see all the patches of bare earth I think of the tulips and daffodils that I've planted.

That must be a relief, Chicky. I hope your Dad settles well into one of them.

Morning all.

Went to small local English Carol Service last night, which I helped to organise. We had a sort of cocktail party in the church afterwards with sparkling wine, finger food and mince pies. I have a box full of wineglasses to wash this morning and a load of greenery that I used for decorating the church, which will now go in my house.

Then we went to dinner with friends in the village, so it was a good evening. Woke up late this morning. Saw the horses from the bedroom window standing patiently in a line waiting for breakfast.

I hope Wonky is feeling better today than she did yesterday.

Obelixx, are you talking about the one with his feet on the bottom step or the other one?

Morning all.

Nothing has happened here since last night and didn't watch the News in bed this morning.

This year I've been to more funerals than in previous years, have lost several of our English friends in France, but they were all well older than us.

But the sky outside is blue and the sun is coming out and when weeding yesterday I found loads of snowdrops pushing their way out.

What is your weather like? (2)

Thank goodness for that!

I'm sorry about your cousin, Lesley, sad news.

Been in the garden this afternoon, weeding and clearing up. Planted bluebells, crocuses and more tulips.

Dove's Ma had a very French attitude about vegetarians! My sister (veggie) was driving through France to see me and they lunched in a restaurant. She said she was a vegetarian so they served her quiche - with ham in it. When she said she couldn't eat it the waiter said quiche was a veg dish. Sister said but not with ham in it and waiter said but quiche usually has ham in it!
