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

Morning all/afties Pat if you're about 

Very wet here and the hail woke me at five, battering on the windows. Still, at least I'm not looking at a flooded Christmas, unlike Cumbria. How much more can they take? 

DD - take it easy girl. No chance of that though, is there! 

W'song -  and . Hope you can get the loo fixed anyway....

Why are blackbirds digging the garden

I've got what seems to be a pair just now. He sits on the shed roof in the morning waiting for brekkie. What a delight they are   

I do the same Hosta - a sprinkle or three among the plants in the biggest border where there are a few perennials, and therefore some gaps at the moment. They also come up to the bench near the back window as I put a suet treat there for them, attached to the bottom of the bench. Mrs B is often there when I look out

and I really think you need to taste each one of those chocs - just to make sure they're not poisoned or anything ... 


Quality control - vital...
