Steve - I too have curvy calves and long boots are impossible to find - when I did a lot of riding I could never wear the cheaper rubber riding boots - I had to have expensive leather ones   such a PITA - I also have really high insteps which means that if a boot is deep enough across the ankle area to get my foot into the boot then it's usually too big in the foot even with several pairs of socks. 

In the garden in winter I either wear walking boots or old jodphur boots or Crocs - and I try to keep off the garden when it's wet - not just because it's bad for the garden to stomp around on it then, but also 'cos I just don't have really suitable boots.

Good morning all

Very mild temperatures overnight - the lowest was 9.1C and it's 10.7C already   Most unusual.

Today's tasks involve finishing off the last of the wrapping and getting my hair cut.  I'll probably cook a meal as well   - tomorrow is OH's birthday and he wants a Day at the Seaside!

Good result - and they've got a satisfied customer who will probably buy from them again and even recommend them as being good at Customer Service etc - so a good result all round.

Matty ((HUGS)) - very gentle ones

Pdoc    Pressies for OHs can be difficult.  We're just buying each other a small gift this year and putting money to a city break later - maybe Feb or March.  I'm getting him a mixed crate of real ale - but don't tell him!!!

Re Christmas Emoticons - Daniel has said he's sorry but he's been told they're not possible this year   He has tried charm and persuasion etc, but apparently none of the sites serviced by the Tech Team are getting them this year - not even the Radio Times!!!  We're all in this together!!!

We have a meter and mains drainage with Anglian Water - there's only the two of us and our water bills are nearly £600 pa!!!  We have water butts for the garden, but do have to use the hose/sprinkler sometimes.
