You're absolutely right Hosta - it's an obscenity. Like small change down the back of the settee for most ordinary people. No deterrent whatsoever, but without a change in the laws regarding fines....

Got any cauliflower cheese spare Dove? Pretty please   

I'd far rather have that than a stir fry, if I'm honest! I rarely make it as the girls don't eat it. Hopeless mares

It doesn't look that impressive from the outside Liri - it's small - but google it and take a look at the interior. It's been beautifully restored. The owner's daughter did the interior. 

The faded grandeur of Italy is hard to beat Peter. Although, in Scotland,  I think we give them a real run for their money when it comes to stately homes and Baronial mansions....

I use one of those little plastic scrubby brushes with a handle  you can use for doing dishes. They work quite well. I soak them for awhile, then use some hot soapy water with a bit of disinfectant afterwards.

I hasten to add that I don't use the brush that we also use for the dishes.....

Glad you're having a good time T'bird. Braemar is where I should have been last weekend.  Have you visited Ballater and on round to Loch Muick and the Lochnagar hills? You can get good walks round the loch if you don't want to go higher. All beautifully maintained of course, as they belong to Liz.... 

Glad you're getting back to your tennis Dove. That's been a while you've been away from it  

My snowdrops are still very shy. The ones near work, on the verges and in the garden at the foot of the road, are all in full bloom. Higher up than me and only ten minutes away, but can't see any real reason for mine being slower.  Only showing a couple of inches out the ground, although they do have little white buds full of promise. I think I might replace my little potted Irises with some, Obelixx. They're  past their best I reckon and snowdrops are beautiful, as you say  

I'm not spoiling my good mood thinking about a***hole footballers. Especially ones who drink drive. They aren't worth wasting emotion on. Until the powers that be do something more appropriate to deal with them  (and anyone else who does it) it will simply never change. 

Chicken stir fry for tea I think.

Electric fencing is the only way to keep them out, MW.  Perhaps you could advise your neighbour  and that will give her peace of mind.  Part and parcel of rural living, of course, but they're a bl***y nuisance in urban areas where some misguided people keep feeding them. They're not domestic  'pets' but sadly, some people think they are, or can be. 

No doubt that'll get the arguments started   

I used to have regular visits from siskins in the garden round the corner, but them, we used to have loads of chaffinches and greenfinches too.  Siskins are lovely little things

Morning all/aftiesPat. Hope it's cooler for you today 

Pinch and a punch and white rabbits and all that

We had a difference of ten degrees yesterday morning from the previous morning - minus four frost and fog up to plus six and rain. I'd rather have the minus four frost - no rain and wind with that!  Benign day here at the moment. I think it's to change tonight, but it's February - it's what the weather does 

I'll have a quick catch up before I head out as I wasn't around last night. 

Catch you all later - have a grand day whatever you're up to
