It looked ok to me Lottie- but not a teacher.

Am having a mega visual disturbance, first this month. Drat & b****r it. Have flopped next to laptop & am munching a well OOD pack of pecan nuts. Typing isnt easy, so why am I trying? stoopidwoman!

Pile of daughter's tins/packets, along with a lot of my clippits sat on this table. It's actually been quite funny- how long have I kept that? Do we/I need it/is OH going to notice it's gone? Good job it's bottle & ordinary bin collections Thursday.

I have just vetoed the idea of checking out the wardrobe cupboard that I use for some stock items- ketchup etc. OH has finally got the idea of giving me a list of his wants/needs before we go shopping on a saturday morning. J.

Oh Geoff, that'll be going round my head now.

We've just had a heavy snowstorm! Still falling, but a lot lighter & dripping off sills, guttering at the same time.

Dont worry. Am practising biting my tongue- wonders will never cease. Just hope that when we get a look at the place, OH does the same..... I shall just do her bidding, with a little bit of advice if asked of course.

Right, we're off to finish the cupboards, then can watch the R3 prog as a treat! Byee. J.

What's the weather like in your area?

Eek, we've just had a heavy snowstorm. Still coming down, but at least it's a lot lighter. J.

Plan to watch the Richard 111 later.

Like the idea of a small non electric kettle- shall get one I think.

The 'b' boiler at it again! Wind strong again, snow melting in places, pavements will be murder tomorrow if they freeze tonight.

Daughter trying to sort out in what order she needs to do things to the house. Wonder if OH will take some holiday? The jobbing gardener will think about it, mine comes first! J.

Got you Geoff. OH's Aunt has that set up & a shared drive. Drives her mad as she hasnt a car & the next door house now rented out. She worries herself silly over rights of way etc.

Daughter says the snow cover worse around here. She could be moving out sooner than I expected.......

Huge lot of 'bottom of veg rack/fridge' soup awaiting zapping. We've eaten the last of the roasted type left-over vegs for a snack. J.

Oh dear it's sleeting again. I did tell daughter to put her boots in the car, but I bet she's still wearing trainers . Ok she cant drive in those boots, but ....... when do they learn?

Geoff, just had a nosey around house pics. Am puzzled- where is the front door? J.

Well daughter is scaping her car. We've had sun, sleet, thick snow all in about 30mins! Sun again & wind increasing.

She has an abhorrence of doing R turns in the car. I do agree that turning R off our estate, up a steep hill, in blizzard conditions wouldnt be my preferred route either. So she'll turn L down the hill, L onto busy 6 lane road, next L & double back round to be on top road to use some traffic lights to cross the 6 lane road to get to her destination.  I havent mentioned the R turn, ok traffic light controlled, she'll need to do to near to her destination. Then there's limited parking, but we drove that way recently & she had a good nose around as I drove v e r y slowly, annoying others, so she could suss that out.

I'm 'doing a Kit' as I now say, she wont mind , whilst I wait for the body butter to soak in. Now I know why I normally use lotions... J.

Nooo, chopper left me alone!

We used to have it around/overhead quite a lot, but nowadays it's rare to see/hear it.

Ooh, think I can get into bathroom, byee. J.

Sleeting now on top of a layer of snow that fell overnight. I'm sure I heard rain or perhaps hail on the windows in the wee small hours.

It was just above freezing first thing, then dropped to just below as the sleet fell.

Winds have dropped, but due to increase again later. I need to go out to investigate a 'bang' heard last evening. The greenhouse roof panels still alll there from looking out of windows, so not sure what's 'gone'. J.

Oh Jean, poor you. Daughter asked why I had 2 old mugs & a packet of candles under the sink? She'll learn!

Chopper gone, still sleeting. daughter not a happy bunny as has to go out mid morning. I'm going to finish off the kitchen cupboard investigation/clean up then next week, or whenever I can start off seeds etc without feeling guilty! J.
