AYM, if your Bosch washer is less than two year old , it should still be under guarantee. Ring Bosch up and get them to fix it. My last Bosch washer lasted 15 years.

Two each for half a dozen of them hoping to get lucky at the christmas party. He probably got the short straw, and had to make the purchase.

More likely a snowdrop I think.  A flowering size tulip bulb would be bigger than that.

One of each isn't going to make a display.  Have a look in your local garden centre, most bulbs are going half price or less.  At least you would know what they are going to be. They need to be in the ground or pots asap.

No accident by the looks of it.

The shooting of the Russian ambassador in Turkey is not going to go down well with Putin either.

The hedgehog has gone walkabout. I hope he finds his proper hibernating hole. Its going to get cold this weekend.

I make a cake sort of using delias creole christmas cake recipe.   I soak loads of dried fruit and nuts in rum, then I make a basic cake mix, equal weights of eggs, flour, butter, brown sugar.  Then I mix the two together and bake. If you substituted ground almonds instead of flour would that work? or use a flourless cake recipe for the cake bit. My cake is three quarters fruit and nuts and a quarter cake.

 You can use what you like. I use glace  cherries, sultanas, dates, apricots, glace ginger, almond, pecans and walnuts.I just tip them in, not weigh them.  I have to make the cake. hubby is allergic to brazils. It gets a bit dodgy this time of year. Epi pens on standby.

I've fed it and taken it up the garden to put it among the leaves beneath the bug hotel. It seems OK there at the moment.  Its snuggled down in the dry leaves. Maybe the cat had disturbed it from where it was. Its a bengal and very nosy.

Probably the same idiot that burgled a chemist and turned the cctv monitor around to face the wall. The cameras on the ceiling got everything...
