Happy Christmas all you lovely peeps

House still sleeping, but Turkey is on, Santa has been, and I'm sneaking in a peaceful cuppa.

just had a peek in the garden, and my Christmas pressie trees (already planted as they arrived a few weeks ago) are adorned with big bows

Have a wonderful day everyone

Christmas from the garden

Snap Fairy  littlest chicklet has been doing similar - except I made the cake

 Love the house too - how sticky did she get assembling that

Just seen the dreadful Glasgow news, so glad you are ok LilyP, and hope Fairy and all hers are safe too. What a horrible, horrible thing to happen.

Happy Christmas

Got a cancellation, so boiler repair man should be here this morning.  Kept house warm with the log burners yesterday - it took a lot of logs.  Rain and wind here, but not too bad - hope others are safe and well.

Morning all  Hope everyone is safe in the wild weather.  We have not had much excitement yet, although I can hear the wind building, and today is forecast to be bad, although not a patch on what Scotland and the Northwest are getting.

Went to the Garden group's Christmas supper last night. Jim Buttress was the speaker - very entertaining anecdotes of his gardening life.  And the allotment challenge will be back on our screens 2nd January - some gardening tv to get us through the bleak days of midwinter....thankyou bbc
