My car once broke down in reasonable weather within shouting distance of civilisation. It's just amazing how cold you can get and how fast. I'm with Pansyface's scout! Hi viz, big thick warm coat, dogs with leads, bottle of water, crunchie,fully charged phone.(for RAC/AA) purposes, tin box with easily accessible common sense.....!!!!!!

And added to that a shovel, a pair of sensible boots and some 'Yaktrax'

Dove, Bombay Sapphire £18 a litre in Sainsburys, or it was in Sheffield, yesterday.

Brilliant Pdoc   Will have to make a small detour on our way to the seaside tomorrow morning - yes folks, in true British tradition we're going to Cromer tomorrow in the wind and the rain to eat fish and chips

Hey folks!  I used to have an adblocker but I've had to download a new version of Firefox and I've lost the adblocker - can't remember which one it was I downloaded - anyone got a link to a good one?

Wonky, I must say that your husband's family are probably the most integrated East Anglians I've come across, despite your hub being first generation British and his parents only having been here since the 1960s - no ghetto for them

 There you are DD  

Miserable weather here - just popped to Waitrose for some tea bags and laundry detergent etc - had a look at the gin 'cos I noticed last evening that the level's getting a bit low - but no special offer on any that I like - anyone know of a supermarket doing reduction on Bombay Sapphire?

Winter Veg Planting

Quickly pop some Broad bean Aquadulce Claudia in now while the soil temperature is still unseasonably warm - they'll grow very slowly over the winter and give an early crop in the late spring, avoiding blackfly infestation.

Mine are just peeping through the soil surface now

I can't see that it's a good idea to sell arms to people who may have grievances (real or imagined) against us. 

A good while ago we knew an arms dealer and his farmily quite well (they were customers of our family business).  He had been merrily selling arms (including missiles) to the military dictatorship in Argentina for many years, with the full support of the UK government - then suddenly his sales were frozen by the UK and the next day we were at war with Argentina. The change happened that quickly. 

We'd always known that Argentina claimed the Falklands/Malvinas ............. but they wouldn't do anything about it, would they?

Turkey stock made and strained here - can I find room in the freezer for it, or will we be having turkey soup before Christmas
