Frosty here - makes for pretty views from the train.  I'd rather have a good cold winter than a mild one .....but then we have a heated house - ((hugs)) for  Clari.  Put the job hunting at the top of today's to-do list and leave the scrubbing for the others.

Got a busy day in the office, but then plan to make the most of the fact I am on Oxford Street to get the last pressies on my list  So might be a later train home than usual.

Love I'm a celeb in this house - always have done  Its something about the people watching, rather than the trials.  Our predictions are in an envelope on the mantelpiece (made on Day 5) .....get to see who's right soon.  I'm quietly confident

Just back from our walk - the sun on the grasses (not yet beaten down by the winter weather) looked like a sea of gold πŸ˜€

I always pot mine up first, but thats because I like to see them come up, and know exactly where to look in a pot

Sweeten & improve flavor of tomatoes? (cherry)

They say not watering them too much improves the flavour - I only water mine twice a week now (unless there is a heatwave and they start to wilt) instead of every day.

Morning all - late on parade, but thats the joy of a Sunday

Frosty white out there for us too - perfect day for a walk a bit later - at least thats the plan

Then Christmas decorations up this evening - I know it sounds early, but we are away next weekend, and I don't want to leave it til the 17th.  Things only get done in this house at weekends, so todays the day.  Won't get the tree til the 17th as it is Chicklet's turn to put the star on the top, so we'll wait til she gets home for the holidays.

Have a good day all❄️❄️❄️❄️

Climate Change?

You had a duff "solar panel specialist" Philippa.  If you generate more than you use, then you sell the excess back to the grid (at a pretty high price, as an incentive to get people to do it) and get a nice cheque back every month
