Jam buttie time here. No wonder the weight has piled on.... paperwork getting done though.

Becks those stirfry 'kits' are fine, but just as easy to buy/grow some vegs & do your own. That way you can get what Jess likes to eat. Just use any old frying pan, hot oil & fry them! dash of soya sauce at the end, add some quick cooked noodles & it's Chinese. Do any bits of meat/chicken first in same pan before you throw in the vegs- less washing up.

It keeps trying to snow a bit out there, all this mornings' has gone. J.

Geoff, what have you done to deserve all this attention?

Have made a start on paperwork. Been shredding stuff. Need to clear bed nxt so I can really sort out that box!! Then will need to file lots away, but then the files could do with a sort out too.......

So am having part of lunch early, well breakfast was long time ago, then more painkillers even though feel ok. Know that if I dont continue with them will not feel ok!.

Snow's melting, but maybe we'll get some more? J.

Glyn, it's supposed to not snow tomorrow???? So providing they get the roads sorted today, it might be a possibility to get down there. Trouble is the Staff hills & SMidlands en route.....

Have been reading the paper on-line. Not half as good as actually curlingup on sofa/floor with it. This is not getting any paperwork done....

Derek- hope you enjoy your retirement. J.

Morning Gary & Glyn. I was also wide awake early, but then I did go to bed early last night.

Some snow here, not much, sort of sticking, but cf you 2 a bit pathetic. Grew up NWorcs/Black country border on a N facing hill, so snow in any winter was/is the norm. Become a wimp nowadays.

Squirrel on niger feeder, but birds not arrived yet. Lots of singing this morning, despite the weather.

Paperwork awaits here too- no excuse not to finally sort it out. J.

Aww, poor Caz. Hot honey & lemon drink?

Have just had a baked potato, with low fat creme fraiche, stirfried kale & garlic, a sweetpotato & bean 'bake' courtesy of Morrisons. All yummy. I could probably make the 'bake' myself, but once in a while...... there's another in the packet too. No room for a pud, but just got my last coffee of the day & have taken the first batch of painkillers.....

Going to 'flop' now. Site going s l o w for me as well. J.

Who's the medic? Bunny just said she worked there, I think????

Thxs Bjay for blueberry advice in pots- just what was going to ask Geoff. I adore them & thought I'd try.

Have managed to lick my fingers after chopping garlic- twit! Off to stirfry some kale with it next, when beeper tells me...... J.

Oh Jo. Hope it's not too bad, what day do you go? We will all be thinking of you

Large mug of tea by my side, now what shall i do?? Bored!!

Need activity

No BJay, she'll phone me at home between certain times. Works quite well, saves petrol & sitting waiting etc. Anybody can ask for a phone consultation with their GP, but it's not widely known.

Very windy out there now, wet, no snow. Had my coffee quota for the now, will allow myself 1 small cup later. Watching Lovejoy now, again...... J.
