Oh Hosta not good. I've not had a hypo for years; they're evil things. God bless strawberry jam.

Well my lost in transit van 25kg of meat is..  lost. But Parcelforce hope to have it here tomorrow. Whether it'll be any good or not I don't know but it's their van that will stink with all that tripe and offal not mine!

I am so grateful for twitter being able to contact Parcelforce directly. The food company has been completely radio silence while I tried to request help from them via phone and email.

Plumbers are still plumbering

Fire place chap has been and poked around

Punkdocs snowy weather has arrived

All important dog food delivery is... LOST IN TRANSIT

Well I don't know whose transit van it's gotten lost in but can you imagine the smell of 25kg of meaty goodness not to mention the tripe fantastic if they don't find it before the weekend?

Joyce; he hates stew! If I made him curries and chillies he'd not get a move on. But mountains of dumplings and we're good to go (plus I love dumplings!)

Joyce: train? This dog is first to cuddle up to the hot water bottle in bed! Hopefully things will start moving a pace when his lordship gets fed up of hearty warming stews.

Punk: it's been gloriously warm and sunny all morning here but just as I posted a photo to instragram the heavy clouds have appeared. It mentioned snow in Scotland on the radio; it must have gotten lost.

Joyce: the heating relies on the plasterer who relies on his lordship tweaking the bits he needs to do....

We could be waiting some time.

Sat in the garden and it's gloriously sunny! Leafs have been swept up and thrown in an empty compost bin, I'm considering hacking the nettles back next or perhaps tidying up the pond plants. 

Or maybe I'll just sit in the greenhouse and roast my joints whole the plumbers rip out the central heating.

Funny you say that Dove it's a popular choice in Norway. I actually used to have two singles on my double bed but his lordship didn't think it romantic enough so we had to switch to a king-size with king size duvet. I'm thinking of a few decent weights sewn into my side!

Mail Order Pond plants

I ask because most of my pond plants are all going over now. The lilly has well and truly bunkered down for winter and has disappeared entirely. The only plant in my pond that looks full of life is my fire optic pond ever green.

If you order and receive plants now ask what they'll actually look like / in what state they'll be in for planting. You might be better off holding the pond project til spring.

My eyes are open. Awake? Not sure about that.

Thought it was excessively cold last night. When I took his lordships cup of tea to his side what did I find? ALL THE DUVET. I'd be bunkered down with the dog blanket. Brr!
