Good morning all Our front garden is glistening white with frost - the back garden is protected by the terraced fencing up the hill and nothing is frosted out there. We're near the bottom of the rise so as there's no fencing at the front the cold air tumbles down the slope and collects here in a frost pocket - it's fascinating to see the difference between the front and the back gardens.
We have no plans for today as we will wait to see whether Pa is well enough to return to The Lovely Home or whether he will remain in hospital a bit longer, in which case we will visit him there - we won't know that until late morning so we'll have a lazy start to our day.
I made a big pot of soup yesterday with the stock from the goose carcass - we had it for supper yesterday, and if we have to visit Pa today it will serve for supper this evening as well - if he doesn't need visitors I have two fat pork chops in the fridge and will make a Potato Dauphinoise to go with them.
Chicky, I'm not going to talk to Pa about the cricket - don't want to cause a relapse
