Fidget - that makes sense 

Clari - how sad. It may well be a tough evening - I've a feeling you're the person who will enable them to be as level-headed as possible while remaining sensitive to distress and anxiety. Thoughts with you ((hugs))

BL    I'm still coughing so will stay indoors in the warm as much as poss. I do have a very woolly hat for outdoor excursions if needed 

Joyce  Vickys been cutting my hair for over twenty years - she knows what I like and I have faith in her. I've had hundreds of different styles with her.

Hello I'm back. Hairdresser agreed to go radical and cut it really really short and I have to sculpt it with paste. She said it's sort of Judy Dench meets punk!  There was more hair on the floor than there is left on my head, and it was pretty short to start with. I luvvit!!! 

The city was full of people with the lurgy so I didn't feel guilty about the possibility of spreading germs. Vicky said she and most of the salon staff had it over Christmas and the new year. 

Glad Hostas enjoying his holiday. 

Pat I just couldn't cope in that heat. I would melt!

good morning all 

Ouch! Fairy 

No grandchildren here which is not a problem for me. Wonky's step-wombles are lovely   Son is still recovering from broken marriage - whether he will settle with someone else and what happens next is in the lap of the gods - no pressure from me - I'm perfectly content either way. 

I've discovered I have a hair appointment today. I shall wrap up warm and go in on the bus - I kno w she's on holiday next week and I can't go around looking like Worzel Gummidge for much longer!

More coffee needed ....

Topbird - not a Hammond is it? 

OHs coq au vin was stupendous - a huge step up for him cookery-wise but the result is great and plenty left for tomorrow.

Definitely improving thanks Glenys, OH is cooking coq au vin and it smells wonderful - it's the first thing I've been able to smell in weeks 

When to plant melons?

That's good to know Terry  Obviously you have space in the conservatory to grow them on a bit before planting out - what size are they when you plant them in the tunnels? 

Where abouts in the UK are you? Is your plot nicely sheltered and which way does it face?

Daisy - hope you're having a lovely birthday 

Who's visiting your bird feeders?

Fairy  We had a slight frost and sleet earlier, now it's just cold and damp. 

There are still loads of blackbirds out there, and a pair of Gt Tits who appear to be prospecting for a new home.
