Dove, decaff is the one with the blue lid right?

Final kettle call of the day: I'm in bed with a hot water bottle to ease my back a little. I think it must have caught a chill somewhat when I was pottering around earlier.

Samung note user here - I'd definitely suggest getting a tablet of some variety rather than just a Kindle. The Kindle app is free to download but of course you then also have a tablet open to a variety of uses.

My samsung lasts around 10 hours use (unless I'm watching a movie) and has a screen film over it to protect it and also reduce any screen glare (can be a problem sometimes in harsh sunlight).

Kettles on!

Oooh fantastic Dove! I need to start thinking about holidays for next year. We didn't really manage anything this year and with the education programme occupying me three weeks of the month I'd best get dates booked quickly before the rest are filled with "good ideas!" 

Right; kettle is back on. When is it socially acceptable to start the mulled wine going?

Garlic is now in the ground (I started it in pots) - rather later than planned but then I've only just eaten my third advent calendar chocolate so you can tell time keeping isn't really working of late!

Too windy for leaf sweeping they keep moving around!

Any suggestions for lunch? I'll get the kettle on!

KEF I'm just about to make a fresh pot! Sneaking the heating back on; using the excuse that I have washing to dry on the radiators.

To do list is looking rather long for a day off. I've also got to batch make a load of chilli and other meals to freeze ready for lazy days when cooking is too much effort. Not sure what other meals will be though!

Morning all. 1.3'C when I put the kettle on this morning; ridiculously windy outside last night so I have a feeling this morning (day off) may involve sweeping up the rest of the leafs.

Brought the Christmas tree yesterday at a local farm; trouble is by local we mean local to his parents so it had a 90 mile journey home in the truck! We didn't get the decorations out last year as we had only just moved in so this'll be our first time getting them out: hope they survived the move!

Right: anyone for another tea?
