We cut ours down by half in the autumn, but was going to chop a bit more off come March - is that the right thing to do?

Morning all

BT thing is no longer in the news - so guessing it is sorted.  Think most of the power cuts are now resolved too.  Hopefully missing peeps will be back soon  Lesley has also disappeared .....probably up a ladder with a paintbrush somewhere

Morning Dove Morning all those to come

Feeling a bit chilly here - expecting an ice scraping session when I step out the front door

I'd love to come to the party .....will launch my kayak and arrive via Pdoc's stream. Don't need much in the way of overnight accommodation - hopefully by then I will be back to being yellow and fluffy (instead of blue, square, with a faintly quizzical expression), so will just need a cosy coop with a little perch.

Thanks Lyn and Fidget for finding the right thread for me

Morning - hope all are safe.  Was in London last night, and even there the wind was whistling round the skyscrapers.  Arrived at my meeting looking slightly tousled and windswept

Morning all

Good luck to Mrs Pdoc on her first day ...Nottingham seems quite a drive from Sheffield (or am I displaying the geographical ignorance of a southerner)

Got a day of planes, trains and automobiles to look forward to (only minus the plane) .....might catch up with you all later

Finding that CV should be top of the to-do list Clari ....and this time I wouldn't turn down anything awesome that comes your way.  Enough is enough.

Had a surprisingly enjoyable rainy walk - I kept dry, and a peaked hat kept the rain out of my face (pet hate) .....and we passed hardly another soul.  Birds were merrily singing away too - probably delighted that they were eluding bird counters

Just coloured pencils for me Pat ...although I like the sound of a bit of glitter

W&P tonight, then need to get all set for a busy week.  Have a great evening folks

New garden - suggestions for design please

Hi wrightt - can you plant under walnut trees? I thought they gave off something that inhibits other plants' growth, but may be I am remembering wrong
