Good morning all

Chilly here and ice on puddles.  The Met Office says sleet or snow this afternoon.  Think I'll stay indoors!

Stay safe everyone

Pdoc!   I'm pleased Spurs got through - I've had a soft spot for them ever since Ken Hancock transferred to them from Ipswich back in the 60s   However, as my son is a lifelong Chelsea Supporter I'll keep quiet re football from hereon

Clari - No bread and milk - it makes hedgehogs very poorly or even dead!!!


Meat-based cat/dog food or dried meatbased cat biscuits.  Sunflower hearts, chopped peanuts, banana, raisins, mealworms all good for hedgehogs.  And fresh water.

It's my birthday

Put some food and fresh water out - he's only woken 'cos he's hungry.  If he comes and gets it see of you can catch him and get him to a Hedgehog Rescue place - he might need intravenous feeding. 

Good luck

Nut, I think you mean that you wouldn't mulch woody plants with it, don't you?

Just back from a lovely lunch with Chicky - I'm afraid that the weather wasn't very welcoming - torrential rain and thunderstorms - but I've taken her back to rejoin Chicklet at the UEA and now the sun is shining and the sky is blue. 

We popped into the Farm Shop and said hello to OH, then had a lovely lunch at the GC.  I'm a very luck Dove - Chicky gave me a Galanthus Mighty Atom!!!  It's the one that comes from Benhall in Suffolk very close to where I grew up - it's lovely and quite rare!!!    She also gave me a birthday cake!

 A very special sideways birthday cake!

She had a quick guided tour of my rather bedraggled garden and then I had to take her back to the uni to meet up with Chicklet. 

Now I'm on the sofa with another stack of cards that the postman has just delivered

It's my birthday
