Overnight temp down to 1C last night, but back up to 9C at the moment Pat, and the heating's on for the moment so I'm nice and toasty. 

Pat, you asked about our fish pie ... I make mine pretty much like this one .  I usually add some salmon and shellfish as well as the white and smoked fish, and I add the grated zest of half a lemon to the sauce.

Pruning now?

  Whoops!  Sorry ....... manners!   Good morning folks   G'day Pat

Glad you're friend's getting sorted out.  You'll have to tell him, if a similar occasion arises in future he must let you help ......... not for his sake of course, but for the little dog!

It's a complicated pattern BL - I don't think a second sloe gin will do a lot for it's regularity  

Decision made - knitting has gone back into the bag - sloe gin is being poured .... anyone want one?  This batch was made in 2004

Right, can someone make a decision for me ......... shall I have another sloe gin while I watch Sherlock?  Or shall I knit ............. the two things don't go together ............

That's very kind but I haven't got room Linda - Verdun had better have my slice ... I'm sure he can make room

I could manage a little wedge of Stilton to go with my sloe gin ...... anyone got any left?

Pdoc   absolutely agree - fancy this lovely lot falling out over such daftness. ((hugs))

Linda - left-over Christmas pud makes a fabulous ice cream using bought vanilla ice cream and a little brandy

Also slices of left over pud are wonderful fried in butter, dredged with sugar and served with cream
