Gorgeous colour David - just what's needed on a dreich Sunday 

Glue gun Lesley - keeps them there for hours...

Love the woodie - mine hasn't made a re appearance sadly, but I live in hope. He probably comes when I'm at work and then hides whenever I look out the window. 

David's got me hooked on editing and sorting my photos now. I took this of Ben Ledi (just outside Callendar) on my way to Beinn Each, at the end of November. Cropped off the bottom bit and brightened it a little

How does it feel to be 28?

We just call 'em all turnips up here pansyface  

Mashed, with copious amounts of butter and black pepper is how you have them. I don't...but that's just me 

Don't have haggis either 


New fence

I think it's understandable that you don't want any hassle Lou. I hadn't thought of the fence and wire that pansy and philippa suggested, but that's undoubtedly the best thing to do. You want a proper fence for your own privacy - totally understand that too. It's infuriating how people just don't care about anyone around them though. 

Get your nice fence in and get back to enjoying your plot, full of good things for your own pleasure 

From your description - it's easy to work out why he's an ex husband...

Morning all - and good to see you Pat 

Hosta - you're not having the best time  Eight degrees is what we had yesterday - that's almost barbecue weather here....

T'bird - snow's insulating and it always feels better than that miserable, dank, bone chilling coldness. 

I'm currently looking through some cds that a friend gave me to find ones for copying. It may take a while - there's four cases of them with about 180 in each case....

Fishing for sympathy!

Hope you're ok and will soon be back home. We'll make sure you have a big cake and proper birthday wishes if you name the day 

How long do you have to stay in?

Before you start the fence Lou - get a quote in writing (if not doing it yourself) show him it, and tell him he's jointly responsible for the boundary and liable for half the cost, as the situation isn't acceptable as it is. If the fence was his property originally, he's really liable for all of it. You can point that out to him as well and let him know that, out of the goodness of your heart, you're paying half. If you go ahead and build it, and pay for the entire thing, make sure he doesn't take liberties with putting 'stuff' on it. He's taking the p*** because he knows you'll just do it for the sake of your garden and your privacy. 

I don't know what distance you have to fill, but it's not cheap to do it properly, especially getting 'a man' in 

B****y neighbours.

I glued their feet to the fence Lesley....

Love the Hyacinth close up 

Is the starling one taken through a  window? My blackbird one was. It's amazing how well it turned out even when the windows weren't very clean!

I must read the booklet that came with the camera
