Snoodle has bought our train tickets - we're going come Hell or High Water!  I'm sure there's lots to see in the cafeteria  

And I'll wear my waterproof pink jacket - that stopped the rain at Anglesey Abbey didn't it?!

Christmas stuff in shop

I agree Lesley - both my son and my OH have birthdays in the week before Christmas!  Birthday cards are on my shopping list NOW!

And as for those of us who have birthdays in January - unless people have planned ahead all we get is what is left in the New Year Sales

Good morning all

You've both beaten me

Clari - good idea about the plant for 16 year olds.  I used to despair of the huge number dying plants in social work offices - I used to tell them, 'if you're not observant enough to notice that a plant is in trouble, how are you going to notice a child with problems?'  - however, my tongue was in my cheek  - most of the plants that died in our offices were the victims of long hours, huge caseloads and unreliable heating!

I enjoy celebrating at Christmas and New Year with my family and friends.   I understand the way that Christians have adopted the old midwinter festival, but for me the deep-seated need is to celebrate Midwinter - possibly having had my first baby at the Midwinter Solstice may be something to do with it   As someone who loves Nature, 'decking the halls with boughs of holly' etc has always had significance for me, and as someone who enjoys cooking, I look forward to the preparation of the 'feast' and make puddings and pies (and countless lists) well beforehand.

But as for the C*mas Shopping!    I start that when I'm ready .... and not before!

Pdoc ((hugs))  so glad to hear your mum has got some sight and some confidence back.  What a fantastic adventure you have planned! Now you really need to start feeding yourself up - like seals and walrus you'll need a layer of blubber to keep the cold out 

wooden planter

Just check on the How To tab at the top of the page. You'll find a list of projects including how to build wooden planters. You should be able to work out the materials you need from that. To price the materials you can look at the websites of DIY merchants such as B&Q or Homebase.
