Matty ((hugs)) our fears loom large in the middle of the night don't they - do you think those recorded books and headphones would work for you - I know someone who uses them to help keep her mind busy in the middle of the night.

As I said, I think you'd find more fresh air and exercise beneficial

My Dad loved his pigs too   but he loved his children more  

And there were a great many pigs - mucking out took Mr F all morning every morning.

And Ma needed Pa indoors to help with the Christmas lunch

Are they yellow pansies?  For some reason sparrows seem to like pecking at yellow flowers.

Crikey! Who pressed the freeeeezing button?

In Norfolk we've a sharp frost at the front of the house - the car windscreen is frozen and there's ice on the puddles; we're near the bottom of  a slight valley so the cold air rushes down and forms a frost hollow at the front. 

At the back, the gardens are terraced with big fences which seems to stop the cold air rushing down into the back gardens so it has to get much colder before the back garden is frosted.  Only 1.7C in the back garden overnight.

Thanks KEF - much better this morning (wasn't really bad anyway, just making a fuss ). 

I'm going to join Pdoc outside raking leaves this morning - if I help with his maybe he'll help with mine
