Oh Fidget, how very very sad. My heart goes out to you and your family. Will be thinking of you all in the coming days and months.
Actually got out into the garden for a few hours yesterday - some of the more straggly perennials are now cut back, but plenty more to go. Think the rest will be waiting til January now. OH also planted the trees Santa bought - two crab apples called "gorgeous" - one from each of the chicks. I'm promised they will have bows on Christmas morning.
house all decorated, cards all written ..... Can feel the excitement mounting .... Now all we need are Christmas smilies
Just been to have a pootle round my GH for the first time for ages - all is looking well Pulled all the yellow leaves off the agapanthus and discarded a couple of lavender cuttings that had succumbed to the dreaded grey furry stuff, but plenty left still looking healthy.
also discovered that deer eat Hebes. Not sure it'll recover from its rather drastic haircut, but have moved it to a safe place to wait and see.
Little drummer boy always gives me goosebumps
Johnny Mathis too
and in the bleak midwinter is my favouritest carol ... Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone .....
I swear by Sneerboer - v expensive, but family have bought them one by one for Christmas and birthdays. I remember when and where every one came from - some are now very special
Feeling virtuous now - started on the Christmas cards Will finish tomorrow. Tree is up, but not decorated yet (chicklet is out, so waiting til tomorrow so she can join in) - but house smells of pine tree ....lovely
Settling down with a book until Jungle is on
Oh Matty, that is great news. An op will be tough, but so good to know they can isolate it. Sending positive vibes your way - you'll be great whatever route you decide. Got a big smile on here.
and Lyn - take care of yourself as well as others. you couldn't be doing any more. And your Mum (and Dad) will know that, which is all that really matters.
Frosty views here too- beautiful
Love it that you never know what our weather is going to do - thats why we talk about it so much
