Re Christmas Smilies - sadly Daniel told us that altbough he'd used all the persuasive charms available to him, he's been told that none of the forums supported by the Tech Team are getting Christmas Smilies this year - not even the Radio Times   The Tech Team are up to their eyes in 'stuff' and I suppose that we'd rather they get on with ironing out the blips - we can manage without the fripperies - we can just all smile at each other


I got lucky last night...

I didn't Alan - I just suffered with the heat! OH says it was like sleeping with a windmill!

I'm leaving my little greenhouse opened up for the next couple of days - if it gets really cold would you mind popping over and closing it up and bubble wrapping it - you could fleece the fig while you're at it ... if you don't mind

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

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?
