Morning all - Happy New Year. Eventually got to sleep - endless fireworks round here.

Cold here too - ground frozen when I fed the birds earlier - but the snow didn't come to much. It'll be nice on the hill later but I have to take daughter to work so it'll be a short walk for me. Typical - the only decent day before I go back to work....

not mentioning Edd's pix...

Hope everyone is ok. I'll have a quick look round here before I get myself organised to go. Have a good day everyone

BL -  You've been so busy - as always - hope it's just a result of all that and you feel better tomorrow.

It's just started snowing here. Not sure if it'll lie - glad I'm not out partying!

Tea for me Panda - thanks chuck  

RB - we're a big family here - and often nicer than the real ones, I think.  'Wha's like us!'  

At the risk of sounding like Del Boy - 'Bonne chance' you lot - see you next year

No chocolate left here Clari - just some very tiny candy canes on the very tiny Christmas trees!  

Get stuck in....

 What a rock and roll existence I lead.


You and me both doc 

Liri - many of those 'much maligned' lads are also helping with the clear up north of the border. Funny how it isn't headline news though eh?  Sounds like hubby deserves his special meal

You could contact the Gardeners World office but I doubt anyone will be there for a few days. The address of the company who print the mag is at the bottom of this page

Sorry to hear of your sad news T'bird. Sending love to you and your family xxx

January is a difficult month for a lot of people. 

I don't do New Year either. I find it meaningless - not a party person in any way shape or form. 

Re heating last night's roast and doing new veg for dinner.  Sleety and cold and wet here so the heating might be on a bit more than it's been recently.

The telly is rubbish isn't it Panda?  I just watch things I've recorded mainly. Got Johnnie Walker's radio interview with James Taylor on just now. Even that's a repeat! It was good though

Hey jo - Northern Exposure.  

Kind of what you've had today....

I loved that programme 

My plans for walking tomorrow have been curbed as daughter is working and there's no public transport. I'll have to drop her off and maybe just get up to Arrochar for a quick shuftie up something. Rest and be Thankful's re opened with traffic lights in operation, so perhaps go there.

I never cut out anything completely DD. Moderation for me always....well most of the time.  Too much sugar is the worst issue for the majority of people.   I don't drink, I rarely have processed food, I eat lots of veg and I  get exercise outside. Balance is the key to most things in life I think - but it can be hard to achieve. 

Hope everyone has a good night - whatever they're doing - and a happy and healthy New Year when it comes
