Good morning (just).  Went to GC with vouchers for 20% off bird food and have come back with a bootful.  Now I've just got to find room for it.

Your hubby's a star Pat.

Night night Pat.  Sleep well

Pam, thinking about your Christmas tree and remembered a friend who, having young children, decided to put the tree in a playpen and the children had free range.  Something similar could work for Kizzy.  As a pup our doodle managed to pull a fairy light bulb from it's holder on the tree and a treat had to be supplied promptly to get her to drop it.  

What bird of prey would attack a skein of geese?

Thanks Bushman.  I find myself scouring the skies every time I go out now but haven't seen a red kite yet.  We went to Crieff a few years ago and the sight of numerous red kites flying around the hills there was breathtaking.

Liri your views there are spectacular.  Loved your friend too.  Hope your visit to see your Mum goes well tomorrow.

Hosta get plenty of that lovely sun on your knee.  I find it really weird that people would rather be playing with their 'phones than talking to the person next to them.  Phones have their uses but it's so rude to use them at the table.

Hooe the knee brace does the trick Dove.  It will probably take a while to get used to it.  Wonky a week of freedom sounds exactly what you need.

KEF my Mum and Dad are soldiering on despite the aches and pains.  I rearranged their kitchen cupboards as they are both struggling to reach the top shelf.  I wish I lived nearer but am glad that they have very good neighbour's who deal with putting the bins out and take Mum shopping.  Hooe that your Mum is doing OK and will be happy with the exchanged 'Bridget's'.

OH is out with the car so I decided to walk to the Post Office and shops.  Not the best idea as my foot soon got really sore and my other ankle started getting shooting pains.  I must have looked like a poor old woman hirpling down the street.

Think I'll have to try one of those bars Fairy.  There was a lovely sky when I went out earlier.

Good morning Dove, Bushman and those to appear.  Hi Pat.

Bushman I've got all the ingredients for baking but they've not been put together yet.  No frost or snow here either but everywhere is very soggy.  

Chicky I'm back home now from my 'holiday'.  It's time to try to get my own house in order now.  Where does all the junk appear from?.

Lily I hope you had a lovely tIme with your little poppet yesterday.  Christmas is going to be very special.

Off for the morning amble.  It used to be a walk but my energy levels have dipped.

It's such a shame that these beautiful birds are seen as 'fair game'.  On my walk this morning a pheasant was making an alarm call - every little bird scurried/flew off and then I spotted the buzzard on the wire

Sorry I've been absent but have been thinking of you all.  Quite a shock to read about Rb's son.  I'll get in touch.

What a gorgeous puppy.  We have a doodle too, she's four now and getting sensible (sort of).  They are so full of fun but can run rings round you if you're not careful.

I've loved seeing the 'photos.  The blouse is amazing Gertie.  Never could do the fiddly bits

Pleased to hear that chicky and DD's OH's are recovering.  But by bit they will get there.

I've got to read back to see what else I've missed.  Oh Dove - stop giving Edd a treat
