Hiya Lesley ....on the iPad freezing, I feel your pain

Today is a day of mane taming and eye testing. Maybe fit in a walk this afternoon.  Think I'll do my birdcounting tomorrow.

On driving when senior .....I have great hopes that driverless cars will be the norm by the time I get to that stage 

Few pages back now, but love the Rock hosta ....especially its little ferns

Oh dear

 So the advice is that I need to invest £250 on a new device in order to access the GW website?  None of the other websites I use seem to give me this problem.

It seems there is a solution to this problem (Hazel found it, but has been instructed not to share ) Any chance that those of us experiencing this issue can also be let in on the secret?

Morning all

Yesterday was the first morning for about 10 days with no frost, and yet the temperature didn't get above freezing all day .....whats that about  Will be interesting to see whether there are garden casualties this year - its been colder for longer than the last few years.  I fear for my penstemon etc.

Pdoc, if you need any help on the maths just chosen specialist subject 

Enjoy your weekend of celebrations Dove and Wonky

Chicklet went back up to Nottingham yesterday......

Mr C has been raving about Italy's invisible cities Lily - maybe I should give it a go.

Another beautiful day here - very frosty and clear skies.  Went for a walk on the South Downs - exhilarating.  If winter was full of days like this I wouldn't mind it so much

Good on you for marching LG - its given lots of us a glimmer of hope.

I've never met  Hosta either, but somehow feel I'd know him if I saw him

just watching our birds at the feeders (getting my eye in for next weekend) ......a particularly aggressive robin is dive bombing the LTtits everytime they land on the peanuts.  Some manners are needed

Morning all.  Really hard frost here too- looks like its been snowing out there ....very pretty.

Got a surprise 80thbirthday party to go to today, down in the New Forest 

Off to scour the papers for Hosta lookalikes ......think I'll stick to the Times though .....the other one is banned from this iPad.  Will also help me avoid the front pages.  Think I'll be doing a lot of that for the next while.

Welcome home Hosta - glad you're safe.

Good to hear the new job is going well Wonky

If you go snowdrop hunting at Anglesey Abbey then I will try and join you (if it is a day I can take off work) - their winter garden has been on my wish list for ages 

Had a tense week, butChicklet has now made it through her exams, so all is calm once more.  She came home on the train last night - all her friends still have exams til next weekend, and she managed to get some extra shifts at work to top up the coffers.

Best get a move on ..see you later peeps
