Good morning lads   if either of you is in the bulb-planting mood there are some tulip bulbs on my kitchen worktop that need to be planted amongst the wallflowers in my front garden ...................... I'm visiting Ma this morning, but plan to make a cake later

Good morning all

Had my zzzzzzzzzz yesterday evening and then stayed awake for Autumnwatch and Unsprung

I love Bruges - have had some lovely visits there in the past, especially during Advent - it really feels very Christmassy then - and Bruges is a very civilised, if rather expensive place to do some Christmas shopping. 

Chicky ((hugs)) glad OH is perking up

Panda from past experience those bright hair colours need refreshing every couple of washes - very high maintenance

Hope Ma KEF gets a new coat soon - I remember escorting my Ma on her last coat buying expedition probably about 8 years ago - I tried to persuade her that something 'less tailored and less fitted' would be the way to go but she bought what she wanted as she always did - it's very complex trying to get her into it now

Which reminds me - this morning I shall be mostly visiting Ma

I once had a similar looking ankle - I ended up on crutches for a few weeks - when asked in A&E how I did it I told them

'I tripped over an art student on the sofa, but I didn't spill the Bordeaux'
