T'bird - wouldn't it be great if we had a big Forkers 'garden' party! I do a good roast potato 

As long as I can watch Casablanca, and I can cry during The Marseillaise, I'll be happy. Followed by Singin' in the Rain. It's one of my traditions, and they're usually both on at some point  

I'll certainly be around on Christmas morning for a bit of chit chat, until the girls heave their fetid bodies out of bed to keep their old mother company... 

Those chocs will only go off...

Is he going to scweam and scweam until he's sick then?

I like your new avatar Dove 

Lovely trees and lovely pix. Makes me feel almost Christmassy....

Gorgeous cake chicky - a shame to eat it! Next time you need any ribbon, just let me know and I'll get you any colour you want. I spend each day surrounded by thousands of metres of it!

Evening lovely people 

You've all been very chatty while I've been slaving at t'mill 

Good result Hosta - you'll soon have it all sorted. 

Glad you had a good time T'bird, and nice to have supported the Lakes by going there. I couldn't go there physically, but donated to the Cumbria Flood Appeal. It was the least I could do. I heard today there could be more flooding on the way. Bushman has had warnings in Hawick too.  

Makes me appreciate all the things I have even more, especially after Steve's story about his clinic neighbours. 

Lots of good things happening to many of you, so I hope that continues

It's not big Verd - roughly 8 metres from the house to the rear fence, and about 10/11 metres wide (widest at the house end)  plus a little area in one corner where the shed is. There's a bit  along the side of the house but that's just grass, and is where the extension will be - eventually. 

Very satisfying RB - thank you.

Morning/afties all. Wild here last night but calmer this morning. It would be nice if we got up to 8 degrees during the day here Dove - but that weird mild weather isn't right at this time of year! Is son having cake by any chance ? 

Hosta - didn't you know? They all get killed at the end of Downton....ooops, sorry...

Hope all those with aches, pains and other lurgies and illnesses are a bit better this morning. I seem to have stopped sounding like some sort of 'forty a day' hound during the night.

I'll have a quick look round before I head out to work. Have a good day everyone, stay dry and warm - at least you've been a bit cooler today Pat

I moved here end of February 2013 and started it that summer. Eldest daughter helped a bit with all the new boundary fences - about 40/50 metres or thereabouts. She helped with removing the internal bit as well, and moving the shed etc. She's quite handy with a pickaxe and an electric screwdriver now

Have a lovely day W'song - you've worked so hard recently with the house, so take the time to enjoy it. I remember when youngest was four, we were getting towards the end of the extension we were doing. I finally had room to have all the family at mine for Christmas dinner, and although the new lounge wasn't decorated, we had the tree done and all the fairy lights up, and at about midnight, I was putting makeshift curtains up and it started snowing. It just seemed perfect  and we had a lovely family gathering

jo - what is wrong with workmen? Doesn't it ever occur to them to notify people of their intentions - or do they simply not give a flying **** about anybody? 

I'm hoping to send a little Christmas cheer to everyone on Christmas Eve with a little something I've done....hope you'll all enjoy it

Watch this space...or a new thread anyway...
