Oh dear - sorry you're having such trouble with the weather in Blighty!  It's rather warm and sunny here...

Hi Pat - and anyone else who's awake... we're waiting at the airport for the gate to open.  Not sure what my stomach makes of porridge at 5am...

Hope your friend recovers quickly, Pat.  It sounds an unnerving experience. 

Thanks for the good wishes everyone!    Hope the weather perks up for you soon.

Evening all.

I'm at that stage when you think you've done almost everything you need to do before going away, but suspect there's something vital you've neglected...  

Eleven long-tailed tits on our fat cake this morning.  I've re-filled it, but suspect they might have got through it all in the next week...

Morning all.

Hope nobody is snowed in this morning - LilyP's photo last night didn't look good... hope your Mrs managed to extricate the car, Pdoc.  Snowy on the tops here, but slushy where we are.

While DT surrounds himself with yes-men of the same intellectual and moral capacity as his, he'll carry on believing what he wants to believe.  We need someone brave like the little boy in the "Emperor's New Clothes" story to show him what he's really like...

At least if Wonky's problem is definitely not Carpal Tunnel, she might get a diagnosis and appropriate treatment... here's hoping!

I'd better get going.  Need to do a few jobs and finalise the packing... it now looks as if the wind speed at the airport is going to peak 2 or 3 hours before we're due to take off, so fingers are crossed here... OH in particular really needs a stress-free break.

It did, thanks, LG.  It was quite dark, meaty stock which went well with the beef and mushrooms.  A few bendy root veg got incorporated too, and we had baked spuds and sprouts too.  

Glad your stew was appreciated!  It makes the effort worth while...

That looks serious, LilyP.  You stay safe too!

Lovely delicate Amaryllis, Dove.    We have just one snowdrop out - promise of things to come...

That's a great snow plough, Joyce!  

What is your weather like? (2)

Thanks GWRS!    Should be sunny (or at least warm) - La Palma, one of the small Canary Islands.
