Glad all sorted Dean.

I didnt know that not all new cars these days actually had spare tyres in the boot. I know some only have the space-saving type to get you a short distance, but some dont actually even have that! They have a repair kit of sorts!

I asked daughter if her car does have a spare- she's no idea! Still it passed it's first MOT ok, but I suggested she actually check. She says she wouldnt know how to/or be able to change a tyre. I know how to, just not strong enough to do it- but it could help if she had a puncture & was able to say if she did have a spare or not. Pleased to say that my cars' manufacturer always supplies a spare.

Right off to turn on the Remoska, yet again! J.

on their way to garden near you!

We had Fieldfares for the first time here in WManchester last yr. No chance to run for a camera, just stood & enjoyed watching them in the trees behind the garden.

My one holly tree still has some of last yrs berries remaining, they just didnt get taken last yr, for some reason. So far havent noticed any on my other, older tree, but all of last yrs went very quickly. J.

Flo I have to report my weight every 3 weeks to a nurse- drug dose depends on it apparently. Must admit to weighing myself unclothed & before have consumed anything! Hospital clinics dont give you that chance.

I did finish off the yummy 'crusty' bread with lemon curd on it earlier.

Daughter back already! Doesnt want fried aubergine with the reheated cauli mac cheese, drat. Quick rumage in feezer & some ready made veg sausages will have to do! We have however got 4 (!!) large pots of the best ever youghurt to keep us going for...... oh at least a couple of days, I hope. Only seem to be able to get from my delivery store as not seen at t'other nor anywhere else yet. J.

Well done all you poets.

Becks you must be relieved?

Tesco still due- I suppose the local school runs will have slowed them up between me & the store. I did try to go for a fairly sensible time with all the traffic around here....

Daughter now more awake & gone to Trafford Centre to meet a friend. Apparently she still wants a meal here tonight, but it's a quickie reheat as wasnt sure how much time I'd have after sorting out the delivery.

Despite the good forecast for tomorrow I think shall nip down to TC myself to do some more present shopping. Next week I could be blocked in by OH's car &/or workmans' van, so the garden can be done then.Then it's December the week after & shopping will be unbearable!

Goody, delivery arrived. Good dates on dairy things too & another £ off petrol too. mine, or OH, this time I think! Off to finish sorting. J.

What's the weather like in your area?

Walked down to the hospital this morning in the dry, just.

It must have rained whilst busy inside, but was dry when had lift back home. Now it's heavy rain & yes need the light on. J.

Crikey Becks that sounds way too complicated for me- good luck!

Tesco order amended, menu written down, dufflecoat added to pile at bottom of stairs! There's a perfectly good coat rack to use...... BTW we're both warm enough at the mo- layers!

Vision playing up- drat- so signing off now.J.

Oh help you lot. Cant stop snorting with laughter which is really annoying daughter!

Typical, OH goes away for work & the boiler starts up again! Neither me nor daughter actually sure which knob/lever to use & having had a glass of vino, both of us, it probably wouldnt be a good idea anyway! So have slightly reduced the temperature, so it wont come on as much, which is fine at the mo.

Daughter now very impressed. The dufflecoat she ordered has come & is just what she wanted- good. Only 2yrs of looking....

Inka- glad you're ok so far. I suppose that you're more used to the extremes of your weather. We'd never cope, just look how the recent harsh, used to be normal, winter caught us all out.

Need inspiration for menu now, so can update my Tesco order. Bye for a bit. J.
