Morning Yvie - afraid I'm usually early whatever day of the week it is - my bodyclock was established when living on a farm - no Sunday Lay-ins when there's pigs to be fed and milking to be done.

Kettle's on - fancy another cuppa?

Hey Good Looking.....

Would you like to get un- stuffed Dove and tell me how you combine  Potato and turnip, please, .........

As Dorset Uk has said, peel and cut up potato and swede into chunks and simmer until tender.  Drain and mash with lots of butter and black pepper - seemples!

I'm a southerner (with some Scottish connections/ancestry) so although I know that they're turnips (neeps) when they're north of the border, I also know that they're swedes when they're down here and those tender little white and purple things are something else and do not go in Clapshot.

Good morning folks

Have a lovely time at the Panto Edd - don't think I've ever seen the Chuckle Bros.

Sharp frost outside -0.7C in the back garden, lower in the front.  Everything's crisp and white and sparkling. 

The highest temperature in the back garden yesterday was 4.3C and there was ice on the pond for the first time ever!

PLEASE DONT GO GRANDMA

It's a shame when other people's behaviour causes such upset.  I'm sure that there's no reason for Cangran to leave the forum - I hope she changes her mind.  She would be sadly missed.

I've known people who work for telesales companies and similar - they're only doing a job so I try to always be polite even when telling them off.  I am registered with TPS but it doesn't stop these flipping 'marketing surveys' as they're not actually selling anything to me.

The National Rose Society books. Need new home.

Runnybeak - Clapshot = (sorry, only one 't' ) mashed swedes and potatoes with butter and black pepper - traditional with haggis.

We're stuffed and on the sofa  and there's enough supper left for tomorrow

Half the wrapping done - almost all the paper used

 

Plus an annoying phone call - why is it that Marketing Surveys are 'nothing to do with selling anything' - they're to do with 'Marketing' aren't they?   I'd have thought the clue was in the name   But apparently they're exempt from TPS regs. And there's no point in being horrid to the lass 'cos she's only doing her job and when I asked her to remove my number from their database she couldn't because my number was 'generated randomly'.  I told her I'd be really tee'd off if I got another call from them and then wished her Merry Christmas.
