It was really mild here in Norfolk last night - I was seriously thinking of putting the summer duvet back on again

Blue skies and bright sunshine here in  Far East Anglia

Bags packed - presents stacked up, everything ready to load up when OH gets back from work. 

Feet are up and coffee is being drunk

To all those who feel alone, I hope you are not,

Things always seem worse at Christmas but miracles can happen and I wish all

the dear people on this thread the comfort and joy of the season.

Merry Christmas and a healthy happy and peaceful 2015

Good morning Dd

We have good torches here - hardly ever need them but they're here just in case - I grew up in the countryside where the electricity could be cut off for days - here we're not far from the big hospital so I think we benefit from their priority if the electricity goes down

Hope your OH manages to find a turkey, or goose, or chicken, or big lump of beef, or something ....

Good morning all

Fg   How do you struggle with your neighbour's overhanging stomachs?  Please explain - is it some sort of ancient Scottish mud-wrestling?   Does HM watch it at The Highland Games?

I should think it'll be the Bocking 14 strain - think it's a type of Russian comfrey.

Absolutely fab Gingerbread House - I've never made one but have long intended to have a go - maybe next year
