Have a lovely time - but watch out for invading Cornish piskies...they come down chimneys and steal tinsel and mince pies...  

They're really too good to eat chick - she's spent hours doing them. I don't think she should let anyone eat them!

His books were some of the first ones I owned. Always full of useful info.

Morning all. Had a nice dinner last night - out with friend then came home and watched last episode of The Tunnel and dozed off as usual. 

I wouldn't have room for Santa on my nails MrsG   maybe just Rudolph's nose...

Here's some of daughter's biccies to keep us all going today with wrapping, shopping, tree trimming et al:

 Will finish gingerbread house later with her. Have a good day everyone

Got 'singleated' then met the real swan David...that's the problem!

Maybe a roast one for Christmas dinner would be good - I'm sure Madge wouldn't miss just one little one... 

Do you think the three wise men looked like this?


Merry Christmas

You should see me normally...look like a bag of spanners.

I'm a bit concerned now that it does look a bit like daughter's Hallowe'en outfit!

Trying to untangle more lights...#**!!#

I still have lots of berries on the cotoneasters Pam. Don't think there's been enough freezing weather here yet - lots of bitter cold winds and rain instead - although the robin was stuffing his little face with them last week when I was out there.

You and me both David...not to be..such is life eh?

Crocus Bulbs coming through in December

Mine are well through too Mike. Been very mild here through November and December so they put on a real spurt. I put an extra layer of compost on top purely because mine are mostly in new beds and they've settled a fair bit with all the rain.

They'll all be fine. As already stated, the cold weather will slow them a bit, and we can't kid ourselves that it's going to be this mild for the new next few months! 

Here's to seeing all those lovely little gems poking through and bringing a smile to our faces on a miserable winter's day

Yours are lovely Panda. Cheeky reindeer are hard to beat! 

Would be nice to see some Christmas tree pics too if anyone wants to display them.

Maybe on David's camera thread, or a dedicated one?

Off to 'do' daughter's hair now and put up some more lights in back window if I can wade through all the decorated biscuits covering every surface....
