Sorry to bore you Geoff!

Becks I thought so too, but apparently not......

It's almost worse than having a toddler/baby wake up & demand attention. You can almost set your clock by it though, so although I shall set my alarm for tomorrow, I'll already have been woken about 5-10mins earlier........ oh & 2hrs earlier when OH leaves for work. J.

I have just been told they are cooking the meal. Hmm, since it'll be me who clears up regardless, shouldnt worry, but.......

Because it's not been cold today, we allowed the heating to come on at the scheduled time & yep, whistling again, just as this morning & yesterday..... Have showed OH the advice Norm2 gave me. OH not impressed. Well have told him to get in touch with big chief at company, since he, OH, was happy to takeover/muscle in on all the arrangements before when it wouldnt be him, OH, who was going to be inconvenienced.

Somehow this is going to be down to me I think, later in week when am around to make a call, after I'ved nagged OH to no avail & started WW3! J.

Afternoon all.

Snow all gone, as has the heavy rain. Sun appeared, washing went outside ! & almost dried. Ironing now done & rest on airer.

Birds being pains agin by being absent. Squirrels well in evidence.

Cake baking being done, by daughter not OH so slightly less mess. Ah, something slightly over done,  so I expect a 2cnd attempt may be done as somebody's birthday cake.

Now to check if A-Z gardening got recorded. J.

What's the weather like in your area?

WManchester- Heavy rain overnight. Awoke to no snow except a small heap where a neighbour had cleared his drive. Our drive all clear- am glad I didnt waste my limited energy clearing it yesterday.

We've had sunshine & a couple of stiff showers. Blustery wind. Washing almost dry & already ironed. Need to tie up a small evergreen that got squashed open by the snow.

Birds on/off feeders most of the day. J.

Sober, despite vino! Cleared up kitchen & been sorting out a cupboard upstairs. OH has the remote so no chance of anybody else getting a look-in. Repeats of the celeb baking on. Acceptable.

Raining here too. It's warmer outside now than it was mid afternoon.

Forgot- daughter found an insect house for £3 at Morrisons! Honestly not worth my effort of cutting old canes up etc for that price.

Off to continue with my sewing. Night all, J.

Jean horrendous journey, poor you. I couldnt believe the news this morning. I know we are lucky here, but Wigan way got it worse the last time too.

Gary birds on our fence count around here!

Daughter has decided that I can redo the birdwatch tomorrow morning, whilst watching the tennis maybe? It always happens - all the regulars do a vanishing act on 'the day'.

Have just been sampling homemade foccatia dipped into oil/balsamic vinegar, now to get round to doing my sauce to go with whatever is left. J.

Hi all.

Lots of snow came down overnight. If the rain doesnt wash it off the front OH is going to have to dig his car out for monday morning. Blowed if I am going to do it.

Daughter & me walked up to the mayhem that is our local Morrisons' this morning. Didnt need much but had no intention of using car, 2 rucksacks fine. Builders were spotted going into nearby cafe for breakfast/snack. Cars sliding around, carpark/access road not been gritted, people driving stupidly etc etc.

Daughter sort of doing birdwatch, but they've all b*****d off!

Been downloading bits for my Kindle. Problem is if I want all the complete books I've sampled, no £ left on my card-oops.

Now shall catch up J.

The inch of snow last evening ended up about 3-4ins this morning. OH did take a great photo from the bedroom late last night- unbelievably bright out there with huge flakes falling.

A good bright start, just above freezing. Walked to local shops, slushy & quite slippy in places. Now it's clouded over, reached 4+C with some wind. Rain expected later. Hope it washes the snow off our drive as didnt bother to sweep it clear this morning. J.

About an inch of snow out there now. Wonder if we'll get any more?

Night all. J.

Groans loudly.

Still cant see the split infinitive Flo, that's really annoying me, but 2 glasses of vino always a mistake.

It's sort of rain/snow here now, which if it freezes wont be fun out on our road. Daughter has suggested she, plus me (?), goes up to supermarket on foot tomorrow as she, not me, is less likely to fall over. OH has had a couple of falls/trips in last few months & does admit to being a bit wary these days. I can donate him some food to take back with him on Monday even if we dont go out on Sunday either, J.
