Morning all.

Just on 2cnd coffee of the day. Did the shopping. Have we left something at checkout? Well it's not here, but then did I actually find it & pick up anyway? no idea! Daughter will get for me on way home after a work shift.

What I did do, was stand behind a silver car, same make, model etc panicing that the zapper wasnt working & knew spare one in other bag. It's chucking it down as well. OH the said 'this car got more doors than yours & that one over there keeps flashing.'..........Oh dear.

Torrential out there now. No sign of any birds this morning, poor things.

Daughter got survey report on house- hmm, needs reading carefully & between the lines we think. Back later. J.

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!

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.
