HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 24/12/2015 at 11:08

As I am the master of leaving everything to the last minute, I have now written my cards and wrapped my pressies. Got to go and get some meat in, lamb for christmas  dinner and do a few visits. Chocolate log is on the shopping list Lesley

Wishing everyone a happy holidays

 

'Twas the night before Christmas...a little homage

Nice one Fairy, that's brilliant. x

What passes you by?

 It's a most peculiar thing Hostafan. Making clothes and a wardrobe?? I was in market a while ago and this guy had a dog holster on, like a baby thing!

Apparently you can get pet cards that you can send to other pets?? Or your pet can send one? Strange

Another guy had made his poor dog wear a jumper. I was fussing the dog and then he said Oh she doesn't like wearing it, it makes her itch!!

I'm with you both on New Year Eve, I'm going to bed early. I also would like to add that shopping of any variety doesn't interest me at all.

 

What passes you by?

Football, the news, celebrity culture passes me by  and I really don't get animals being dressed up in outfits. I think the most ridiculous thing I saw was shoes for dogs?? Am I missing something?.

A few years ago someone said they didn't like music, any music. I thought that was most odd

Strictly is back!

I''ll give her that Busy-Lizzie. I think it's the way she speaks and her facial expressions. Will miss the dancing, it's been a good series

Disappointed that Jay won even though he was a great dancer but there we go. I wanted to Kelly to win as I thought she was amazing. I didn't warm to Katie but now David comes to mention it that's a great description

That's the one chicky, so so pretty. Lovely display of pots and flowers Will make mental note to get some seeds. Do you start them off under cover outside in Spring?

Thanks Fairy, I've loved it this year, for one thing and an other. This finally feels like a more permanent home. There's some small perennials lurking in there as well so next year it's going to look different again. I've also learnt what people like in their gardens if the price is cheap enough

I'm missing being outside, it's just so dark and wet

Ah cheers Chicky. I am blessed with a very capable under gardener who just makes stuff and digs flower beds for me. He's great at designing a garden, this is our 3rd garden together in about 4 years. This one is quite full already.

I love your deep bed, I'm sure the lawn bit is going to be a little less next year. I'm sure you grow some pretty blue starry like flowers that I've admired before?
