Hope you're having a wonderful birthday.  Plenty of time before it's over so can we come to the party?

Morning Joyce.  Certainly not looking forward to the forecast weather

Morning all, hi Pat

Dd ((hugs)) sorry that you!re feeling overwhelmed but pleased that you have good friends who are looking out for you.  Hope your appointment is a helpful starting point to reassure you that you will get yourself back on balance.

Clari good luck.  Rather you than me.

Chicky, not watched Sherlock yet as my concentration levels are under par.  Watched Endeavour instead and that was enough of a strain.

Hope coughs, eyes and aches are much reduced today.

Good morning all, hi Pat

Wishing all those under the weather or in pain a speedy recovery,  it sounds really horrible.  Lizzie although you were looking forward to your break at the cottage you will enjoy it much more when you feel fully fit.  M&S vouchers last for ages.

LilyP it's a relief for you to be going to a warmer place after all.  Certainly not as warm as Pdoc is going to get though.   The wind and rain kept me awake for ages last night and it was more of a paddle than a walk with the dog this morning.

Fidget I hope you find your ideal bungalow very soon and can begin your new garden adventure.

Hope all have a good day if at all possible and that time passes quickly for the workers

Hi all

Sorry to hear the bug is hanging around for a wee while yet.

Really enjoyed Monty's programme and thought the young couple worked exceedingly hard considering what they have on their plate.

Obelixx Stockport is also known as being in the Greater Manchester area despite the Cheshire county label.  Fidget if he comes back with any bugs don't let him in.

A bath and early night is called for here.

Thanks for the link Dove, very interesting and I can't wait to get started.  Will have to wait for delivery though.  Don't think any snowdrops will push through here for a good few weeks but it's lovely when they do start to push their noses up.

LG I hope you feel much better soon.  Let them run after you for a change.

Obelixx glad you've found a very handy plumber/electrician.  Shame about Minstrel's wayward behavigour and hope she lets you sleep tonight.  Hopefully the vet will be able to deal with her sooner rather than later.

Have a good journey Lizzie and don't forget your 'sucky' sweets

Thanks Joyce, Toobird and Fairy.  The one I'm looking at has an inner that can be used on the hob to sear meat first and as it looks a great price atm I think I'll risk it.  I've seen a recipe for pulled pork.

I've defrosted the bird bath again Fairy.  Your wee Robin is well catered for.  If I have bits of cheese left I sprinkle it under the hedge as the wrens love it too.

Sorry to hear of more people with the dreaded lurgy.  Yes Dove, get the catalogues and the knitting out but don't mistake the knitting for a hanky.   Lizzie I hope your stay in the cottage aids recouperation.

I am hankering after a slow cooker for soups, stews and pot roasts.  If anyone has one do they use it often or is it just another gadget that ends up taking up cupboard space?

Good morning all, hi Pat

Just back with the dog and can confirm it's bitterly cold out there.  Plenty of birds too and I've just defrosted their bath.  My method of choice is a pan of boiling water placed in the middle.  I used to pour the water over but think that's what ruined the old bowl.

LilyP you must be getting quite excited now.  It will be hard to pack enough warm clothes in your case.  Joyce, poor OH.  At least he'll be happy now

Hugs for DD.  It's a difficult time for you but keep popping in to 'see' us.

Well done GWRS for only putting on a pound.  Wish I could say the same.  Slimming club starts tonight so I can try to repair some of the damage.

Have a good day everyone
