Evening everyone. are a very naughty influence Dove..........

No haggis for us today ... OH requested curry so there's a Massaman chuntering in the oven ..... we'll have haggis tomorrow - or at least I will.  There's a home-made one large portion steak and kidney pie in the freezer for just such occasions ... what occasions are those? I hear you ask  ...... occasions when I refuse to share my haggis

Oh dear - I think I'd try to keep off it in this awful wet weather - aerate if we get a reasonable spell of weather then leave it alone for the winter.  As soon as it's dry enough to walk on it in the spring scarify and try your new lawnseed. 

I think most family lawns look awful in the winter - I try not to look

I've got one in a border - near a corner and where I can see it through the window when I'm sitting here on the sofa - it cheers me up in the winter.   It's not very big at the moment - if it gets bigger as it gets older I'll just make the lawn smaller

Anybody feeling chatty?
