fidget - if there had been a manger you could at least have had a lie down...
It's been snowing off and on LP, but it's the low temps which will be an issue. The snow was falling on top of ice which has caused the problems. It's barely been above zero all day here, and was zero when I came in at 5pm. M74 was bad according to the radio reports. I don't need to use the M77 fortunately. You'll possibly be on your way by now and not able to read any of this though! Hope it all goes brilliantly
Thank goodness you got the engineer Joyce. Hope you don't get much more snow, but the temps are low so you need the heating working! I've been out knocking the snow off the phormiums and hebes and other evergreens. Won't be great if it all freezes on, and I don't want it breaking any vulnerable branches and stems with the weight.
Spag bol and/or roast chicken leftovers for dinner.
I haven't had any long tailed tits here (yet) obelixx but I'm really hoping they appear at some point. Don't really have the right sort of trees in this garden for a treecreeper, but the conifer and pine are providing cover for the nutties, so I can't complain! I also saw a chaffinch yesterday. That's the first one I've seen in this garden, yet round the corner, there were more of them than anything else.
