I find they do best if the top of the compost is kept dryish and they're watered from below.

I would give it a good soak initially, Best to stand it in a dish of water and give it time to soak up, its because theres not much soil left in it. ....

I usually give mine a good soak like that two or three times a year.  Otherwise they don't need much water - I keep them on the damp side of dry - if that makes sense

Sorry Fidget - missed you there!  Good morning!    Gridlock doesn't sound good - isn't that a valid excuse to stay in bed?  It's so long since I've been to work I've forgotten the rules

Morning Panda   Have you got the salt mine decorated for Christmas?

Re the calories on Christmas Day - what about all the other days though?...

That's why we eat Christmas leftovers for the whole of January - no calories!

I've got presents to wrap today, but hopefully I'll find time to make some mince pies to take to my daughter and son in law tomorrow when I take their presents.  She's working some long shifts between now and Christmas Eve, so don't suppose she'll have a lot of time for baking.
