Phew. Thats the first, non perishable, shop done, and all squirreled away.  Now all i have to do is turn it into delicious puddings and biscuits.  Not too bad in our local W fact, quite a pleasant experience.  And I have Chicklets on hand to help with the baking 

So I shall join you in putting my feet up this evening, with a small glass of something nice and cold.

Oh, and my first hellebore is in bloom

Lovely Fairy. I love how the raised beds go from white to blue, but with the green working hard in both.

and the view across the garden is unrecognisable now - it looks like something out of one of my glossy mags. Is it grasses in the planters either side?

Morning. And happy birthdays to Mr Dove and Mr Fidget

Marzipanned the cake yesterday, then out for a drinks and nibbles do with my Pilates class which was fun - seemed strange to see them in normal clothes and with both feet firmly on the ground.

Great to see our absent Panda has popped in between her partying

Today is a day for making lists .....what to do, what to grocery shop for, what to cook and when etc etc.   .......its beginning to look a lot like Christmas

and Mr C wants to get out there for a walk I think I will join him.
