Yes, well done Bjay- I forgot too. I think those dolls are brilliant. Set to become family heirlooms.

OH has brought back the unbelievable chocolate cake that he made last w/end. I was a wee bit miffed that he didnt offer me any then, but he's subsequently iced it with alcolholic choc icing.... Brilliant slightly warmed up & will be even better with single cream! (darent own up that had found & eaten a small bar of Milka earlier- oh heck what eating sensibly? tomorrow is another day)

Geoff- what can we say? J.

Think have a sort of menu plan for next few days. Shopping list done. Just hope I do get up early, or more likely get OH up!

Dont watch it Geoff. When I go to TC I go first thing in morning & nip in/out & try & avoid December, she says having been last week & NEVER on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday! J.

Geoff....

OH walking back to little house & says traffic around him is murder. So will delay setting off & hope that it's eased a bit by the time he gets to Stockport. Then he's got to get past the Trafford Centre on a friday before Christmas....... solo meal for me I think.

BJay, well done! Weight loss never easy at anytime, but especially over Christmas. I know that 1 yr I still lost weight in January allowing for a piece of Christmas cake as a treat every day. That's just reminded me- am getting weighed by hospital clinic in January! J.

Shopping around here on a Friday is always murder, so try to avoid. OH reminded me last night that he's emptying his fridge of perishables, so that could be interesting & solve tonights' meal problem or it could create more problems!

Daughter has decided to leave early as the schools en route could be finishing early & it be traffic chaos.

Now I need to do a rough menu for several days- no doubt OH will decide otherwise, but we can be flexible with what's available. J.

I must admit, having finished the cleaning, thought about going outside, but since will lose all track of time & it's not that urgent I wont.

Did a quick, very, flower count earlier- Penstemon Alice Hindley, Erysimum, Vibernum Bodnantse. Nowt else. I do need to remove part of a holly branch which is smothering a Mahonia- buds, no flowers. So the branch can be part of the decs! Now where's the glitter & glue? J.

My being Mrs Mop again going very s l o w l y. The birds have been fed & the wormery & the compost bin!

Not sure what we're eating today. Daughter off to work later & OH may not want much after a works' lunch? Hmm, thinking hat on  

Back later. J.

What's the weather like in your area?

It's barely light here too Frank.

Was supposed to be dry & breezy- well it's trying to be dry, I keep seeing the odd spots on the window & not much breeze either. So the 2 lots of washing done in anticipation of a passable day will end up tumbled-again. J.

Morning all,

I'd forgotten about that prediction until now.....

Gary daughter went into Tesco at 2am+ t'other night. She said it was soo quiet- more staff than customers (2-3?) & you had to use the self service tills, but she thought a main till would be opened if nec. I often txt her a list if I need something as she drives past from work, but didnt know she was going this time.....

I'll be in S'burys very early tomorrow, with or without OH! My alarm is already set!

Choc of day- baby, J.
