Morning, Misty here too, good forecast though. 

Still laughing over 'Dan's' thread. 

Leaves, leaves and more leaves to clear today, can't believe how many there are, I have been clearing them for weeks and I am not even going near the edges, leaving them for the wildlife, seemingly no progress.

Hello all, 

Been reading back, very amusing, loving the images of you all in kinky boots and mini skirts, unfortunately I just missed that era, raa raa skirts for me and I remember a pair of red shoes I loved, mum was horrified, she seemed to think they sent out a rather unseemly message.

Weather good here, some roses had a good trim and leaves up off the ground, although more seem to keep following. 

BL nice to see you back, good luck with the tulips &viola.

Just taking son to Judo now, going to try & finish knitting my cardigan whilst 'watching', just a bit of edging to do and then I am going to start on my Santa hat, on the Christmas Tree stall next week, want to look the part.  

Chicky - sent you a message re. Berlin. 

Catch up later.

Still not had a frost here, in fact last two or three days have been beautiful, think it's coming though, forecast this week is cooler. Heating engineer was here yesterday (just needed a clean luckily, no nasty bill), and he was saying how bizarre the weather has been this year.  

Leaf tidying and a bit of pruning of the roses today, perhaps a bit of weeding, can't believe I am not rushing around with more jobs than I have time for, seems very odd. Once I get out there will probably find lots more to do. 

Am going to be good though and go back to the Body Pump class today. Yesterday I was asked to go to the local college for lunch once a month so the students can practice their English, apparently it's a four course fabulous lunch, happy to oblige but can't afford any extra calories so need to get some gym time in. 

Dove hope you don't stand out too much at the auction in pink and buy something inadvertently. 

Good day to all whatever you are doing.

Good morning,

Looking like a nice day here again, reached 20° yesterday in the afternoon. OH was out there painting new wood store he has built, have to say I am impressed. I just messed about in the GH for a bit and cooked a nice roast dinner – do love using all my own veg. 

Dove – hope your puddings all got finished, loved watching SP on Mekong last week whilst i*****g.

FG – new gravel on our drive is winter job – do you fancy popping over? 

Kef – not sure about bionic, feeling a bit creaky this morning. 

BL you do have a wicked streak don’t you.

Woodgreen  good luck with the diet, sounds like a good motivator, a bit of competition always works for me.

Mrs G – loving your enthusiasm. 

Today got a last minute booking so a very quick whizz around with the duster before they arrive, just one night so not too much of a strain. Have a great day all, hope it stops raining for the soggy ones.

Good result. Wondering what Ola will do next - write a tell all book, her and James do seem to get themselves in the gossip columns.

Lesley , nice to see you back.

Hello all, haven't you all had busy week-ends; theatres, parties, comedy shows, bed at 3:30am Runny, make me feel quite dull.

Keys are my 'one weakness' never remember where I put them, am always in trouble over it - when OH away I tend not to bother lock anything and saves a whole load of hassle.  In some ways I think if a burgler manages to find us where we are he deserves whatever he can find. 

Been out running again today, 12.5 k Trail Race, coach was extremely supportive, ran with me every step of the way - had a sneaky suspicion he thought I might turn around and go back to the coffee shop if he left me.  Was very happy with the time but definitely sitting down for the rest of the day.

Was super, they all really put on a show. Really think last few weeks are going to be fantastic if they continue to get better & better. Hope they haven't peaked too soon.
