Wakey wakey peeps 

Can’t sleep .....too excited πŸ˜† 

Best get my scrambled brain in gear, and get into that last chance to make a meaningful contribution ( )for four glorious weeks .  Last time I had that amount of time off I was on maternity leave πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ

Still thinking of the Pdocs and sending virtual hugs πŸ€—

Hope you are on your way to a great hill Fairy 

Sweet pea seedlings

Mice are constantly at my sweetpeas - its the reason I don’t autumn sow  its bad enough doing battle with the little blighters in March and April, never mind having to fight them all winter too

Liri - last minute jobs are on the go   Christmas puddings steaming, piles of bits and pieces appearing everywhere  Had hoped to get out and plant my tulips today, but the weather is dreary, so might leave that job for tomorrow.

Christmas pudding stirring was a family affair as usual - two of us in person, and two via facetime .....don’t want to let any ”wish” opportunities go to waste

My Dad to used to call my Mum a Norfolk Dumpling (she was pretty slim ) , whilst we were always Hampshire Hogs.  He was just a scouser....didn’t seem to have any Lancashire monikas we could retort with.

Hope you have a lovely unwind in your island idyll Liri, and that you enjoy your time in Norfolk Lizzie - sounds like lots of trips coming up.

Carry on sleeping Pdoc πŸ’€πŸ’€πŸ’€ way to heal.  ((Hugs)) to you and Pauline, and anyone else who needs one

Love Barn Owls Pat πŸ¦‰. We only have Tawnys here (in fact I can hear them screeching and woo hooing out there now)......but we see Barn Owls when we go to Norfolk, nearly always in the late afternoon.  I don’t think they are quite as nocturnal as some of the others.

Thanks for yesterdays top tips btw....really useful
