LP - how horrible. What can anyone do to make that better? So much worse when everyone around you is talking about Christmas and having a happy time. It can be a hellish time for so many people. 

RB - your son seems to be coming on really well - hope the physio helps to speed up the process too.

Not caught up yet with stuff I've missed. Thanks for the update re Edd Dove. What a load of worry. I had a friend who got those cysts frequently, but the first one was a huge trauma until she found out what it was and had the treatment.

Morning/afties all. You've all been very chatty already - thought I was seeing things when I saw Hosta's name so early....

#Nappy, nappy,  nappy ,  nappy talk....talk about things we'd.....ok, maybe not 

Wasn't on here last night so I'll have a quick look round before I head out. Very dark and wet - can't believe we're almost at the end of another year though. Know what you mean about going to and from work in the dark jo. It'll be nice to get a bit of brightness on the way home

Forgot to say - Edd - that video link was funny, although I hope it was just the stone skimming that reminded you of me, and not the bit at the end.... 

Don't eat too much chicky 

Off to work so have a good day everyone.

Morning all/ afties Pat 

W'song - I like mine colour coordinated too  I also have some little birds like Dove has on her tree. They reminded me of the ones my mum used to have 

Clari - me too, re the geometry rather than curves. Always been like that -  like a nice straight, level edge. Useful for diy projects though - rarely need a spirit level 

LP - that's good news about your back. Take the advice though - take it easy!

I've missed Edd's news- can someone enlighten me pretty please 

I think I should do Christmas cards soon....

I luuuurve Luther Hosta. Well... Idris Elba anyway....

Go on - 'fess up...that's why you watch it isn't it? 

Quite brutal but addictive. 

Cute pic chicky. I like that look - better than when you were just an egg...

Very mild here- about 7 or 8 when I came home. That's what passes for very mild here at this time of year. At least we've lost the horrible freezy fog we had yesterday.

Heated up leftovers for dinner here. I love that 

Oooh ....and my crampons have arrived

Morning/afties all. Very dark - can't see what it looks like out there but it feels a little bit milder than it has the last day or two. Wouldn't be hard though 

Your little bags looked lovely Pat - hope they're suitably appreciated.

Maybe they want you to cook their Christmas dinner Dove 

Knees, B'man - they're a pain - literally. Are yours arthritic? My right one's playing up now and I don't think it's the same problem as the left one... 

Raw Manure

Six months or so - pretty much as Dove says. I put some fresh horse stuff down on the new borders I created during late summer year before last, covered it in plastic, then a covering of bark ( for aesthetic reasons ) and then left the area over winter. In spring it was already breaking down well.  I planted the borders up during that summer.  

I also mixed some in the compost bin using about the same amount of dry stuff, adding the usual mix of veg peelings and soft plant material. It all broke down over the winter and spring. 

While I was at France I took a cutting,it's rooted but what is it?

I watched JB last weekend too - you can't help singing along Hosta. Think you're right about the 7 year thing too. A new Disney film was a real event- now they just churn 'em out on an almost weekly basis it seems. 

You'd love my Mum's favourite film - Random Harvest with gorgeous Ronald Colman and Greer Garson. I cry within the first five minutes and don't really stop 

 But Casablanca's the one that sets me off -  when they sing the Marseillaise. I greet like a wean

Ya bu**er  

That was taken  seven years ago on the west coast of Arran.  He just sat there taking in the air

Brilliant David. Thanks -  I'll play about with it 

Here's a monochrome  one I must have made earlier...oh no - that is the colour it really was!
