What does this blob achieve?

We have bats in the garden, and our local parks too. Makes my evening dog strolls most enjoyable.

Pat; Reggie only eats home made meals- best thing we ever did for him! Even his treats are home made; it's funny watching him turn his nose up at dog treats other owners offer him.

We have achieved a status of BUILDERS WITH TOOLS!  Actually knocking down even more of the house!

Enough is enough

Tetley; purely medicinal of course.

Fairy; Fear not. They might be getting notifications by email of us posting on this thread and remember to come back to say hello properly ;)

Pork is in the oven; a slow roast. Partly for taste partly because the oven is the only form of heating this house has right now.

I was toying with opening the mulled wine earlier. Normally by rule it doesn't come out til first frost but... well surely it's frosty somewhere? ;)

I'm glad I tidied the greenhouse up; I've decided to move half my kitchen in there to keep it safe from the builders. Hopefully his lordship will be back before dark (I doubt it) to help move larger items (and his car laptop that's currently on the kitchen counter).

Dove; can I come and join you with the lemon and honey? We have neither in the house! Sore throat is now fully fledged sniffles. Spent some time in the garden and managed to clear the greenhouse up (sort of!) The bulbs will have to wait though. 

Right now the sun is shining through the mucky window right onto the bed so grumpy hound and I are making the most of the only comfortable area to rest in the house.

A quick nap then I really ought think what to do with the pork shoulder I've brought out the freezer for dinner. I'm having a clear out of the freezers to help make moving everything around when the builders come somewhat easier.

However looking at the contents of the freezer this week will be very Pepper Pig heavy!

Many more first aiders walked out the museum today. Hard work but fun. Now I'm back home and can succumb to this sore throat that's been nagging me all day. Vitamins and hot drinks at the ready!

The local radio was mentioning FROSTS on the high ground TONIGHT!
