This year’s festive offering πŸŽƒ

Sending positive vibes to Pdoc for a full recovery the meantime, there’s another fan of pilates and mindfulness here - quick burst of headspace in the morning sets a good tone for the rest of the day.

Lovely flowers Pat .....hating the time difference here too - very difficult to find a good time to catch up with Chicklet.

Have a great time in Bilbao Obxx and Possum - (only ever been to the airport on the way to Pamplona)......sounds like some fun exploring to be done

Morning ~ lovely day yesterday.  Ran out of time wandering round Notting Hill (Portabello Road just couldn’t be rushed ) ,,,so we’ll have to go back amd do it all again sometime soon.  Roof gardens were nice, but would have preferred them without all the fake halloween accompaniments - cobwebs and shrouds draped over everything ready for a party later .  Went for a mooch around Wholefoods SM and queued to pay behind James Wong .  And a wonderful dinner watching the sun set over the rooves of London .

Sending many many ((hugs)) for Pdoc

Morning all - feeling for Mr Liri, he deserves a fry up tonight

Alas and alack, no porridge  We’ve run out of milk 

Luckily there is just enough for a cuppa, which slightly mitigates the crisis scenario

Oh Dacha, that made me smile   Although not sure I’d fancy sharing my boat with a bear .....did anyone read Life of Pi?  Great book (never saw the film, but the book was excellent).  Going to make my upcoming dose of Autumnwatch seem quite tame .....but I do love learning about the wildlife that is all around us here.  Delighted to see the hedgehog/ badger encounter last night, made me hopeful for hogs here one day after all - there are loads of untidy woodpiles just waiting for them to move in 🏑🏑🏑

Morning Peeps

Glad that you have got to the bottom of Possum’s worries Obxx - hopefully your upcoming mini break will give her some breathing space and help her keep on top of things.  Don’t care what anyone says about the feckless yoof of today......they seem to have more stresses to deal with than I ever remember

Watched Bakeoff and Autumnwatch πŸ‚πŸ last night - can’t remember last time I watched 2 hours of telly in one evening ......and enjoyed it all
