Full moon means high tides. Wind will whip it up. If you live at the seaside that's the downside.

The Unichem delivery drivers had a bet one year to see who would stay in shorts the longest. The snow finally finished them off. I expect the shorts to reappear around Easter. Their vans have no air conditioning.

They tried again and came into the harbour and docked after an hour of rolling about. OH got home at 5 am. He says the worst snow was around Stoke on Trent. It looks like we had a bit on the grass, but it has all gone now. We seemed to have a full moon glowing for most of the night. Now it's windy. OH has just had his breakfast.  Lazy day due today.

Snowdrop /squirrel food ?

Squirrels here do not eat snowdrops, but do seem to move them around while they are digging for acorns from the autumn. They will eat crocus and camassia. (every last one)

Ha, that reminds me of next doors Great Dane. She wasn't allowed on the chairs, but no one said anything about knees, so she would back up to you if you were sat in a chair, and park her bum in your lap.


Hubby has phoned, he is on the ferry just outside Holyhead. They cant come in as its too rough, so they are rolling about just outside the harbour.

I too am glad I will never do another exam.


I had nightmares for years in my twenties, triggered by early sunrises. always the same..going into an exam and finding I had revised the wrong subject altogether, or I was in the wrong place.


Exams every summer from 11 plus to final degree exams.  11 years of exams every summer.  When I did my final final, I whizzed back to my rented room in Whalley Range and wanged around the corner into the drive, and took the wing mirror off.

I think they had "magnet" at Ashwoods. Only they were £12 a bulb, so I didn't bother.

pins and needles after weeding

It could have been a bite from a spider in the undergrowth. Take an antihistamine such as cetirizine or loratadine, and if the pins and needles seems to be getting worse or spreading, consult a GP in the morning.


If you don't have an antihistamine in the house, there will be late night chemists open or supermarkets. If there is a pharmacy counter, ask there, but if not, look for it in the medicines area. It may not say cetirizine or loratadine if they only have brands, you may need to look at the ingredient list.

Now I'm waiting for him to ring me.  I might go and steam clean the kitchen floor. 


He won't ring from Southern Ireland or the ferry because of roaming charges, so he'll phone when he lands at this end. That's if he gets to the ferry OK of course.

Large onions

Chop them up and freeze. They are no good for frying but still OK in stews.
