Looks like you had a great time DD and raised a good amount. Sisters eh? Rise above it if you can. You have friends here as you know - you can always have a moan to all of us. 

chicky - Perhaps a little prune won't do too much harm though. Have some venison casserole to get your revenge  I was going to say oh 'deer' but that would be in bad taste wouldn't it? 

I've done some housework and going out for a coffee later with a friend. Feel a bit idle today.

I grew Manteau in a previous garden but the scent was non existent. Perhaps we never got enough heat in those summers though! I bought two Belle Etoiles for this garden and they're lovely.

Have I got deja vu - I thought we already had a Christmas joke thread? Either that or I'm living in a parallel universe

What are good quality tools for beginners

I think Mrs Norton already has secateurs but a spare pair is always handy. I like Spear and Jackson spades and forks because they're small and sturdy and not too expensive, but I'm quite fussy about how something feels in my hand so that's something to consider before buying...or keep the receipts...

A nice set of items that can be used such as string, labels, scissors and trowels etc make a nice gift, and perhaps a few packs of seed that are easy - like sweet peas, or salad crops if she'd like to grow edibles. You can do all these things as little stocking fillers - individually wrapped of course -  you're not getting off that lightly! 

Building a garden bed over cement plzzzz help

Are you growing the tomatoes under cover just now DrG? Do you just want an early crop? It's very early to be doing tomatoes. They get big, and you'll need a fair bit of space and heat to keep them going through winter. Over here, we usually start them at the end of winter into early spring.

Well I think winter's definitely here. Very dark - snow, sleet and hail on the windows now and none too warm when I was out earlier feeding the robin  

Off for a look round before I have another cuppa and some breakfast. Don't think I'll be venturing out much today. Glad you had a great holiday archie - I could do with that weather 

I suppose I should get some Christmas cards...
