Iamweedy   There is a sun - I saw it earlier - but there's so much low cloud and mist it looked like the moon - otherwise just grey and damp here too.  OH was going to mow the grass, but I think that's been postponed ........


Ir*ning has been done and Cauli Cheese eaten - I foresee an afternoon with my feet up and the knitting on my lap   Maybe a bit of book reading too ......... don't let me anywhere near a gardening catalogue folks ... and that thread about what we want for C'mas is stirring up all sorts of unnecessary thoughts ...

You'll have to share Wonky's beef and dumplings Joyce, there's not a lot on a pheasant and there's got to be enough left for pasties tomorrow, not to mention making stock for some soup later in the week ... 


We're back home - leftover cauliflower cheese from Friday heating though in the oven for lunch and a few bits of ir*ning to do until it's ready ...

Not a huge chocolate tart fan but am loving the look of that fruit tart - and what a pretty plate!.


Pheasant and veg going into the slow cooker in a min, then running OH over to Hobbycraft - he needs some more paint.  


Ma used to get terrible migraines but although I've had the visual disturbances (only enough to count on the fingers of one hand) I've never had the pain - I'm so lucky...............  there I go again ........ 


Right - got my pinny on ......... pheasant!  Here I come .................. 

ABSOLUTELY nothing to do with gardening, too!

Oh dear!  Another earthquake in Italy 


I'm beginning to wonder if I have a problem - I really find it impossible to be grumpy - I can get annoyed/be cross etc for a few moments, but I can't be grumpy - do you think it's a result of having been reared by Ma to 'never complain 'cos other people have it worse' and lots reading of Pollyanna, and then making the best of being married to someone who 'didn't really suit me' ................ am I annoyingly cheerful?  Do say if I am and I'll try to be grumpier ........ 


Radio 3's River of Music on now ................................. 

New to gardening, please help

Yes, be careful not to disturb the hedgehogs - we nearly stepped on one hibernating in a bundle of grass and leaves when clearing an overgrown bank shortly after moving in here.


And if you're putting up fences don't forget to leave access/egress points for the hedgehogs - they need to range over quite a wide area each night, and males can travel up to 3km in search of females.  We have little arched 'gateways' at the foot of our back fence and the hedgehogs come in and out in the summer.  Lots of info here http://www.hedgehogstreet.org/ 


Your garden sounds great - I agree with the others, don't rush things - see what appears and get to know the sunny and shady spots, the areas that catch the wind and find the places you'll want to sit out and read in ... and enjoy
