I was about to 'kindle' too, when I thought I'd just see if all back to normal......

Geoff my case & light turned up t'other day. Have downloaded various free samples to see if what I'd want/like.

That's my quota of 'treats' done for today- 1 piece of cake & 2 chocolate biscuits!

Barely been light all day up here. Have some compacted bits of a border than I know has clay sub-soil, but in 29yrs here I've never seen puddles! J.

What's the weather like in your area?

The rain has actually stopped here after chucking it down all night. Large puddles visible on compacted bits of a border- dont ever remember seeing that happen ever before in 29yrs here! J.

OH muttered about it ages ago bjay, but I refused. So he approached BT, not usually a good idea & bound to cost more £, but it worked & we got an upgrade at actually very little extra £ . Honestly no problems bar once which was a surprise. Talk talk was a nightmare btw!

I've lost control of the remote again- where's the one I won?! J.

Quick change of menu tonight to another I do 'without' thinking. Not a biscuit left in tin, nor crisps, sorry- those were daughters'.

Citygardener- am Jo from WManchester,or Salford as daughter says!

I shall be starting to take down the tree w/e after NY. Daughter will be asleep after nights, but it's not a noisy job.

OH & me are going to the pics one day that w/end too- must be mad braving TC on a Saturday, but the nearest to us. On the Sunday I will drag him down to Dunham's winter garden again, but go early for tea & cakes first!! What diet? That way I keep the noise in house to a minimum, roll on when she finishes doing nights. J.

I've nipped in. Waiting on new nurse- hmm, wonder if we'll get a phonecall soon asking where we are? She's not been here before.

All the washing, tumbling & ironing done! Have 2 plant/seed catalogues & a book waiting for me.

Wish someone would move/finish the remaining open tin of biscuits- I weighed myself yesterday morning in advance of nurse's visit- they always ask. Trouble is, dose of drug is based on my weight. It's knackering me enough already & an increase......

Am going to do a 'whatever vegs need eating' curry tonight. We'll nip to shops tomorrow as long as OH holds garage door open for my car. The wind due to get even worse & bad enough already without the door flipping. Wont be pruning fruit bushes after all having seen the forecasts- ok sometime soon.

We ended up taping the war prog last night & need to rewatch it, to understand it, once nurse been & before tonight.

BTW I use B&Qs seed compost- small bags & still fine for me despite a slight change in formular last yr. J.

Was damp first thing, not too cold. Now wet but trying to brighten up, possibly? Wind increasing too. J.

What's for tea?

Artjak- my/our version is based on one from Delia Smith's Christmas book. If you go to her website, sorry no idea of address, but shouldnt be difficult to find, then it should be there.

Over the years it's evolved, but still our favorite for Christmas. J.

no more food talk please :o(

Now that's something I've never thought to do. Thxs artjak.

Was pleased to see lots of signs of bulbs showing in various borders when nipped out to feed the birds today & even the start of new buds on the rose I transplanted in November. J.
