That's a cracker Verd - almost your best joke yet 

I thought of a good one after what's 'is name got the sack at Chelsea. Might put it on the Forker thread if I remember 

What passes you by?

I'm going to be controversial and add  New Year. I've never seen the point.

Hosta - I'd find that impossible to deal with, especially as my Dad was a musician. Music is a very big part of my life and always has been.

I could happily live without most reality shows and the assorted no marks that inhabit them - never watch any of them apart from Bake off and the painting one. I don't read any of the various magazines that accompany all Z list celebrities either, so I wouldn't miss those. In fact - I suppose I'm already living without them in my life! 

I could happily live without smart clothes - never wear them

Merry Christmas to you all - make sure you behave yourselves. I know what you lot are like once you start on the alcopops and wine gums.... 

Is it a Robin?

My dunnocks happily go in the birdcage and sit on the perches to eat from the feeder, but they're usually on the ground. The legs are quite pale. They're not as rounded as robins, more like female chaffinches in shape 

Alternative Christmas

I'll footer on here over breakfast while the girls snore in their pits. Then we'll open stockings and prezzies and have some lunch before the girls go to their Dad's. Then I'll go to the cemetery and be back to heat up leftovers and snore on the settee 

I will join you all on here at some point in the early evening too I expect

Evening lovely people  

I expect I've missed Bushman - but I hope he has a good Christmas and New Year - without any flooding 

Never too early for mulled wine I expect, although it always gave me the dry boak even when I did drink 

Very cold wind here - it's making that whistly noise which I rather like 

Lovely pic jo 

I haven't got your doo dahs Dove - honest 

W'song - how is doggy today? I haven't looked back properly yet if you've already said. We used to have a beautiful little pony who was a bit tricky in the show ring because he was nervy. Night before shows he always got the runs - awkward as he was grey/white   A friend of mine always said  'oh look, Foe's got scoury bum'

We had it last night too Dove, but this morning was more noticeable. I thought I heard thunder jo, but thought I was imagining it as I was half asleep. There's some ominous looking clouds looming just now. 

Cumbria looks like a disaster zone. Heartbreaking. 

Off to work in a few mins so I'll see you all later. Have a good day everyone
