You mean you haven't bought a new sofa - delivered in time for Christmas Day? Are you mad?.... 

This morning, among all the 'sale' adverts,  was one for...head lice.

I laughed out loud

It was quite nice here  jo - coldish, about 4 degrees - until about an hour ago when the rain started. The best day for walking for the foreseeable, looking at current forecasts, but I don't think I could have gone out for the day and just abandoned the girls.... 

You have to test the food - quality control and all that. I've just about finished testing Quality Street...more Quality Cul de Sac now

Girls gone, been to cemetery, and now back with feet up and a cuppa. Leftover roast beast and trimmings for dinner later. 

I've never seen Happy Feet until today Hosta. Missed the beginning, but it was very good  

Hang on in there Panda....

Not sure I'd like lobster and raspberry together Dove...

Singin' in the Rain isn't on...or Casablanca...or Elf....

Might have to watch the DVDs then....

Merry Christmas doc - it's lovely to see you. Love to both of you and enjoy your day - you deserve it too  xxx 

Glad you enjoyed the 'pome' W'song, and that little Flynn is ok and also your fiend. You're right - no one should be without a roof over their head - at any time. I've had a tiny experience of being in a 'place of safety' and I can't imagine what it would be like to to deal with that over a long period.

Help needed with yew tree selection

Isn't Yew baccata in Star Wars? ....

Sorry Andrew - I couldn't resist...  

As you can see - nutcutlet has all the proper answers - as she always does!  

Good luck with your project - it's a lovely idea. It's what the big landscape designers did in the past - planting woodland and other trees which would outlast them. Aren't we lucky that they did  

'Twas the night before Christmas...a little homage

Tetley - it was my absolute pleasure and I'm just delighted that everyone has enjoyed it  

The forum 'family' has been a great support to me so it was my daft way of thanking everyone for the last few years 

It was tricky finding names which vaguely rhymed for the reindeer though....

Glad you're having a nice quiet day today Pat. I love peanut brittle - dreadful for your teeth though! 

Oh - and Edd's puzzle- it's a 'wee ewe' - 'Wii U'... it's also Edd being Edd 

Lesley - hope the turkey's ok - leave it in a bit longer - just in case   

Merry Crimbo jo - what are you having for your dinner? We had ours last night, stuffed full of roast beast, parsnips, and cranberry and bread sauces, then I had a load of Quality Street  There's a few left.... but it's mainly these...
