HELLO FORKERS!

Morning KEF - much the same here this morning - not dry enough to rake leaves today.

Today the Christmas Pudding mixture will be made (fruit has been soaking in brandy for most of the week).  Tomorrow is Stir Up Sunday - the pudding mixture will be stirred, wishes will be made and the puddings will have their first steaming.  Jill Archer will be doing the same - we've made our puddings together for years

Mushrooms in raised bed

Absolutely no need for concern Missyjane   They're just helping to break down the lovely organic matter that's enriching  your raised bed - they'll disappear when the weather gets colder.

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
