Hi Becks, you'll need all those clothes, its -3c here today. We had to go out yesterday and it was awful, so cold it made your face ache, so the more clothes the better perhaps a balaclava might be useful

I see we have the weather forecast back

Good morning all.

What a busy lot you have been since yesterdays visit.

We have decided to do supermarket shop today in case we get all the snow they are forecasting, with a bit of luck we won't get as much this far east.

We are due to go away for a few days on Monday, but it looks as if we might have to postpone, but will wait and see what happens.

Our daughter is taking vit D pills after she damaged her foot. They did some test and said she had a deficiency so she take one a day, goes back for more blood test later this month.Seems quite a common condition, although she eats a good diet and is out everyday walking the dog. Apparently a lot of children are getting rickets as they don't play outside so much these days, too many computers, tvs etc.

Bjay.- What about buffalo chicken you can do it with wings, or drumsticks, nice and spicy, goes down well at ours. Lots of recipes on the internet Is it a hot or cold meal?

Must go a do something

Enjoy your day.

Morning all.

The weather conditions seem pretty general. We haven't had any more snow, but boy is it cold - 3c at the moment and not getting any better during today so extra woollies called for.

Back tracking slightly about the price of eggs, we pay £2 a dozen, from a cottage about 2 miles away, the lady saves them for me weekly, I think we get a bargain.

Lizzies garden looks beautiful with all that snow, anyone else got snow pics. This one is one from  December2010-- haven't taken any this year.

We had 18" of snow that year, don't want the same again, thank you

 The same place last summer. Can't wait for summer again

Have a nice day, now must go and make coffee.

Nr Lincoln.

Very cold night followed by dull morning, but the sun has now appeared and we have a bit of a thaw, snow melting nicely let's hope it continues to do so.

Just finished pile of ironing now going to make a quick lunch, fancy a toasted ham'n'cheese sandwich.

Oh has decided to do a bit of painting, kitchen radiator, plus a small chest of drawers I've been asking him  to do for yonks, so he might get extra ham.

The smell of sponge cakes is wafting over Lincolnshire as I speak, coming from the south west.

Morning All.

Absolutely perishing here, will not be going far today, the side roads look lethal.

If everyone continues to shop online the high street will be very different in a few years, you can see the change already, but being able to purchase things a lot cheaper over the internet who can blame people for doing that. I still like a good rootle round the shops

I was surprised by Chris Packhams revelations about the birds, as you say we feed them all year round thinking they will nest in your garden, only now to find they B... off come spring. Both our ponds have got ice on them this morning, but the larger one has a small waterfall so that has managed to keep a frost free patch.The birds use the waterfall for bathing.

Hope you have a good day, hope you can keep warm

Hi Becks.

I don't add milk to sponge cake,  just the eggs. When I first started to bake my cakes were a bit hit and miss, my son used to say would I bake a "failure cake" he thought they were ok. Even the best cook/baker doesn't always get it right.

Thanks for jogging my memory Geoff. The one with Richard Burton narrating is the one my sister always used to be playing, didn't realise it was the 70's thought it was much earlier. I thought it was strange, yet compelling. You can get the vinyl on ebay, just been checking.

Tea tonight is chicken and prawn biryani, sauce out of jar.
