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...

Evening all. Rather a vile evening though - cold and hailstones 

B'man - you daft old fool! Look after your knees - you need them!  

Hope the appointment tomorrow for yours goes well Hosta. 

How ridiculous having to wait so long for your heating to be sorted jo. Is there any of the landlord's furniture, or belongings in general, that you can burn in the meantime?....

Looking forward to pix of the cake chicky. Fairylet will be doing her cake soon. Glad things are going well - enjoy that curry 

Clari - get some rest now!

Sending love to Mr and Mrs doc too - not the same without you around doc. Haste ye back 

Sprouts! Yes or no?

Nice raw covered in dark chocolate. No joke!


Every shade of wrong 

I like them well enough, but don't see the point of getting them when no one else is going to eat them.

The 'steak cake' falls into the same category as the choc sprouts 

Ans as for all those 'celebrity' chefs who like to mess about with food just because they can....Room 101 for the lot of 'em 

Festive puzzle....

I think you're right about the ceramic link Hosta. I'm sure I've heard that false teeth were originally made of ceramic or porcelain.

My Gran had a pair of wally dugs on the mantelpiece  

Those green things terrify me B3
