HELLO FORKERS!

Brrrrrrrr!  Bill, hope you've got lots of layers on!!!

 

After visiting my Aged Ps I drove down to the harbour and bought four huge line-caught herring for £2!!!

Two will be panfried for supper this evening and the other two are in the oven being soused in cider vinegar and spices as I type - I love herring, and what a bargain!!!

Hi Lucy

I don't know that particular raspberry, but my instinct and this website http://www.rubybeautyraspberry.com/ both make me feel that it needs a much bigger pot than 9cm!

CHRISTMAS TRADITIONS.......

Not having kids, I worked Christmas day most years, it was a good excuse to avoid difficult family.

I can imagine quite a few people would envy you there Pdoc.

My daughter has stepchildren and used to see them on Christmas Day, but now they're older and further away that happens on other days instead.  This year she and her hub are having her brother over for Christmas as he's on his own and OH and I will be with the out-laws in Lincs, but next year she's said she'll be happy to work Christmas Day - she works for Mencap in a residential setting for adults with severe learning disabilities - from what she says there's a lot of excitement about Christmas already!!!

Morning all, not been on much recently, as don't have much to say at the moment.

Gloomy weather, gloomy mood, but I have done the SM.

It's Stir Up Sunday this weekend Pdoc - have you got the pudding fruit soaking in brandy - the smell in my kitchen is cheering us up in the gloomy weather

HELLO FORKERS!

Most of the ash leaves are down and the grass is getting very soggy so I really ought to rake them up - there are a few leaves left (a Nick Drake reference for any fans) but most of them look as if they'll fall next door

HELLO FORKERS!

Good morning Chicky  

Hopefully it'll be dry enough for me to rake the leaves at some time over the weekend

Hedgehogs!

Something has been in the house and the food was eaten!

Hopefully at least one happy hog

Can you leave a shallow bowl of fresh water out for them too - we find that although we have a pond in the garden, the hedgehogs always visit their water bowl after they've eaten
