I believe it stops the cat knocking them over. 

But doesn't the cat fall off the armchair?

Good morning Fidget and everyone

DD, for heavens sake be careful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ((hugs))

Last minute fruit and veg to pick up and some mince pies and ice cream to make, then it's wipe over the bathroom and we're ready ..................

I woke up thinking there was a Labrador whining at the foot of the stairs  ........... then I realised that Tweet of the Day was on the radio and it was a Mauritius Kestrel calling close to my left ear

You might  just have solved the mystery BL - I was such a skinny slip of a thing when I lived in Suffolk, just like Wonky ......... now I live in Norfolk I'm quite a bit broader - that must be the reason!

Problem with grass creeping from next door into border

Re the grass - I'd just get on my hands and knees once a month and remove it by hand-weeding.  I do this to all my flower beds around once a month .... think it's called gardening

Hello folks - I'm back   Ma's presents are under the tree at The Lovely Home and she's well and happy. 

I've picked up our lobsters and they're sitting on  frozen cold-blocks in the fridge., and I've got a big chunk of smoked haddock to make kedgeree for tonight's supper - it's one of OHs favourites and he's got a very busy week so deserves a bit of spoiling

Hope you get your heating sorted soon Jo - you must have friends in very high places to have arranged this wonderful mild spell
