Think the leaves may be a bit tough for the poor little mollusc's teeth, but they've discovered that the lovely soft petals are just right for them - after all, they need their 5-a-day too

Good morning all   Jolly windy here this morning, and mild 12.9C  

It's my son's birthday today - I'm going to drive down to Suffolk to visit him this morning - his friends are arranging a bit of a do this evening. 

Can KEF not watch Strictly on iPlayer?  or is she too busy sticking pins into her OH?


Perhaps a Survey worth doing...

Mike - The questionnaire is seeking information from people whose gardens flood from time to time.  The first question asks whether your garden has been under water recently - if you answer 'No' then you are told that the rest of the questions are not relevant.  Quite straight forward and absolutely nothing to do with double-barrelled names nonsense or any other imagined prejudice

Lovely thought Verdun!  Yes, lots of positive thoughts for Stacey and every good wish to her and her family for Christmas and 2015 ((hugs))

And to everyone who has difficult times ...

May the blessing of light be on you—
light without and light within.
May the blessed sunlight shine on you
and warm your heart
till it glows like a great peat fire.

(an old Celtic blessing)

Hello folks!  We're home

KEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  What is he like???????????  I presume you'll be getting breakfast in bed every day from now until Hell freezes over!!!

Aged Ps ok - well, Pa in bed a bit under the weather - they think he may have a bladder infection - they've started him on anti-biotics and he's getting lots of tlc.  He slept most of the time we were there but looked ok and his breathing was ok (for him).   He woke to say hello and ask what day it was, and he had a little thickened lemon barleywater to drink.  Ma was in her wheelchair next to him holding his hand and the tv was on quietly.  She doesn't remember sending out the Christmas cards but I assured her that she did it (with some help from Bro) and we've received our and so have my kids, so she's relieved about that.  She said she's not usually that organised!

We saw a wonderful stormy sunset on the way home.

Hi Alan  

Don't think anyone was attacking you - I know from things you've said before that you'd never harm a living creature (vine weevils and lily beetles excepted).

However,  this is a public forum and people come and go and it's a good idea to remind people of dangers - not everyone knows that cats find Jeyes fluid pleasant to drink - and that doing so will cause them a horrible death.
