The snow stopping/starting here. Quite bright out there, but looks windy. Squirrels snaffling the ground bird feeder's food.

Enjoyed the last bit of tennis too Geoff. Now to see if I can get up to watch the final- no chance of being dressed for it though! Think daughter & OH are laying bets!

Right last bit of sewing to do. BTW Geoff, continued with the sort out of saved gardening paper articles early on this morning. Getting there. J.

I know about the boiler being new, OH on the case!!

No snow here yet, but about 15+ miles south of Rossendale.

Our seeds arrived yesterday, except the runner beans & daughter's potato set up!

Back to some sewing. J.

Morning all.

Slept wonderfully until guess what? The boiler started with it's morse code whistle, then got more persistant, so I stomped into bathroom to sort it out, before coming down to make cuppas etc.

Got beaten to bathroom by others so am now up, plus 2cnd coffee of day, still not dressed, but need to go out to birds, compost bin & a wheely bin, which is kept around the front side of house- not ideal in dresssing gown.

Back later. J.

I'm here. Cream crackered & the site going soooo slowly shant stay around.

Had my meeting in M/C this morning, did a bit of shopping & came home just as energy was beginning to go. Not done much this afternoon, managed to stay awake, but struggling now.

OH back home. Daughter cooked meal, I cleared up & then made them pancakes.

Will catch up with you all tomorrow morning. Night, J.

What's the weather like in your area?

WManchester-started the day just below freezing this morning, stayed dull until about lunchtime then the sun came out. I think it only reached about 2-3C in my back garden, but central Manchester didnt feel too bad as I was walking around this morning. Still a lot of icy pavements around our estate, but e/w all clear.

It's dropped below freezing already out there. OH's car still covered in snow from the snow earlier this week in NEast Derbyshire. J.

Hmm, sounds as if you're doing things right. Sometimes plants are just downright stubborn. I know that I've moved a small azalea 3X to it's existing spot & bingo flowers & a happy plant. Literally 1ft to the side of it's original position.

Good luck. J.

I've just seen the forecast- oh heck OH usually comes back on a friday. He's not going to be a happy bunny, since he didnt come back last w/end. Decisions to be made nearer the time I think. J.

Oh the 'popman' for us was a couple of old spinster sisters, who sold Dandelion & Burdock from their farm door. 1p back on returned bottles. J.
