Morning all - it is, just about, still morning isn't it? 

Just walking locally today in a little while as the rain and wind have finally given up, and we even have a little sun and blue sky .The birds look a bit happier about it too 

T'bird - I think B'man is possibly high enough to escape flooding, but he may have no power. So many homes without it, and around 600 people evacuated. Still red alert warnings for the areas flooded yesterday, plus Perth and Stirling. The River Tay often gets very high ( runs right through beautiful Perth) and it looks likely to burst it's banks. They had horrendous flooding many years ago but this looks like the worst they've had in over a decade.

Morning Pat. It does seem strange that you don't have shops open over weekends. As you say, tourist trade will be non existent if everywhere's shut. We've had Sunday opening for a long time here (Scotland) so it would be hard to get used to that. I know there are lots of areas of England which are against it happening though.

Those mince pies do look lovely.  Not a fan of shop bought ones - far too sweet and sickly. 

The Bridge is on now  so I'm off.Catch you all tomorrow at some point if I'm not blown away

T'bird - Bushman may be affected by the severe weather, although I'm not sure which part of the Borders he's in. It's the south east of Scotland which has the worst flooding - around 100 people evacuated 

It was only a matter of time ...Rest and be Thankful's landslide defences are somewhat lacking

Hazel - I've been very lazy today watching stuff I've recorded, and avoiding doing anything which involves hard work. Makes me more tired though!

Verd - I think he's a very dangerous looking foe Verd. Better watch him...

Sorry Panda - come back when the weather's more kind and less germs around 

Dove - the memories that ( Noggin) brought back - I can't tell you. Mr Postgate has the greatest voice - ever

Glad it helped you LP. Hope things are improving for you 

I've now watched all of Noggin and the Ice Dragon. Wonderful  

Tempted to send for all the DVDs as I don't remember seeing any of the other stories.

Got a book for older fairylet when she was little. She loved it. Happy days 

I've had to resort to housework and making more flapjacks. It's a filthy day but at least the loo's clean

If your ground's ok - well drained -  you could stick them out. I find they're pretty sturdy plants on the whole.
