'Afternoon forkers, how is everyone? Fine and dandy I hope. 

I was just thinking I hope son who is in New York doesn't decide to ring once it is midnight there! Have seen the celebrations in New Zealand and Australia on the BBC website. Anyone else seen them?

Need to get down to seed sorting - another of my New Year Resolutions. Yes saw the jar on Facebook - good idea. Need to find a jar......

Zippy, at least you got something done .

I am (at last ) learning not to set myself too many gaols nowadays and am trying to take life as it comes then what you do achieve it satisfying and hey there is always another day. Mind you the very dark and very windy don't sound too appealing

Good morning all

It has taken me a while to catch up with all the messages from when left yesterday evening 

Yes, amazing moon this morning - quite low in the sky (must learn more about astronomy but new programme is coming soon on tv so there is hope yet!) and once I can summon up the energy and put layers and layers on I am going to venture forth into my garden. Anyone else doing the same?

Very interesting about the jasmine - must investigate. I have a mahonia in flower which is very pretty.

I was undecided between 'Bag of Bones' and 'Love Actually' but as both finished very late I opted for 'Midsomer Murders' on ITV3 which I enjoyed. Had started with the Freddie Mercury but realized I had seen most of it before . Earlier this year I dragged my youngest son kicking and screaming to a wonderful exhibition on Freddie Mercury in Brick Lane and he loved it!

Btw does anyone else get this wretched double edition of Radio Times? Drives me mad flicking backwards and forwards. Why not two separate editions?

Have a good day everyone ..... just limbering up (not) for my garden expedition!

Panto, if I were you I'd eat them all and then you can start the NY with a clean slate
