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!

Gnome, cannot imagine re Ferrero Rocher 

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

Gnome, you obviously don't know how I might find that a difficult one to do....perhaps in time

Lottiebeans ..... am trying to reply to you but you have moved up the page!

Yes, chilli and chips, please. I did make a nice stew yesterday with more than a dollop of red wine but somehow chilli is more appealing at the moment 

Yes, you are Surrey Heath which may be your local council but Cambridgeshire South is definitely not mine!

Heavens you were brave to go to the supermarket today but then possibly quite a good idea as most peeps bought for the end of the world before Christmas

Tinkling ....just read the rest of your message.....youngest has MY camera in New York as we speak . I have made a note of the details just in case he either loses it or it gets pinched. What a trusting mother I am but was an expensive one at the time!
