Really horrible out there now ... the sky's really dark and I've got the house lights on and the rain is hammering at the windows ... hope Wonky's got an inside job today.

Very happy and healthy looking pony .... takes me back 

Arums are one of the first wild plants to appear in the spring ... sometimes even in Jan/Feb if there's a mild spell, so keep your eyes open and don't feel despondent when you see them ... weed them out by hand as much as you can ... they die off early too so they won't be there too long and every year there'll be fewer of them.  Good luck

Hello folks   I'm back ... all is relatively well ... cholesterol and BP more than they should be but hardly surprising given the inactive year I've had ... hopefully things will improve.  Benecol yoghurt for breakfast  Weight hasn't increased so that's good 

Weather's horrid here ... quite windy and very wet ... think it's all coming down off the North Sea and we're right in the way
