Great photos, love the misty morning one. Cheered up a dreary Surrey morning for me

 morning. One night out and I sleep for England

However, a peek out the curtains tells me I'm not missing much gardening time - rain and winds howling round.  Bought my Christmas cake and pudding ingredients yesterday so the kitchen is going to be full of yummy smells this weekend.  Going to be strange not having Chicklet around to stir the pudding and make her wish you think I'm allowed to wish twice?  Its definitely a 4 wish mix.

Hope you enjoy Kinky Boots Hosta - one of the friends I was out with last night is going today too - so say hello

hope the hair-dos survive the gales in Norwich - have a fun day

Morning all

Thanks for your thoughts Wonky (and all you other lovely peeps) ....Mr C is improving in leaps and bounds.  Back behind the wheel of a car, and gradually extending our lunchtime walks .....not quite Fairy level yet, as we have to keep on the flat and are restricted to 30 mins, but nevertheless progressing.  Most importantly he has his spirits back ......which makes me very happy too

Loved autumnwatch this year ....will miss having something good to watch on the telly now.

Off out for a meal with friends tonight, leaving littlest Chicklet in charge (I'm not going far) ..... will be nice to get out for a bit.

Enjoy Friday, one and all

I'll go out and check tomorrow David - packet is in the greenhouse and its cold, dark, wet and windy out there.  But from memory it was a Mr Fothergill pack that the one with the cartoon of a smiley man with a hat on???
