Geoff - You never know what is lurking at the bottom of the freezer you  will be having all sorts of unexpected things over the next few weeks/months

We are having roast lamb, mint sauce, roasted veg and potatoes at some point in the day

Bjay, hope your daughter and co have a wonderful time, what a treat.! The last time we went to Edinburgh was at this time of year and you could see snow on the hills from our hotel window. I think the weather is set to improve by next weekend, hopefully, as we are going away on the 21st for my birthday treat. nothing as exciting as the pandas though.

Chris.

What's the weather like in your area?

Nr Lincoln.

A very light covering of snow, bitterly cold east wind, and now grey cloud, but it is January after all.

Frank, we are having lamb but not until this evening.

Best of luck with the paperwork Becks. I have got files and files of my M's paperwork going back years, but I daren't get rid of it just in case, so you have my sympathy, what to keep what to throw At least if it's a not very nice outside you will keep warm and feel sooo much better when you have finished

Just waiting for OH to shape himself, them we can have brekkie

Hi Maud.

Just been reading you posting about going to see the donkeys at Sidmouth.

We went a couple of years ago when we were holidaying in that area.  I was really surprised and impressed by the whole thing, it's much bigger than I imagined. Hope you enjoy your trip, well worth a visit

 Never been to Chelsea, the expense and travel costs put me off, so I watch it on TV instead.

Gone off the topic, but my New Years Resolution, is to sit and enjoy my garden more, not keep bobbing up and down when I'm having a coffee or tea, just enjoy. Don't think I'll manage it though.

Morning early forkers.

We had a light covering of snow more to come by the looks of it, weather coming straight from Siberia with lots of grey cloud. Will have  to fill bird bath with water, first time for weeks.

We started to watch World without End last night but gave up 10pm couldn't be bothered with it any longer, and watched the Italian programme recorded last week, with Georgio Locotelli and Andrew Graham-Dixon, more up my street.  Beautiful scenery and what looked like lovely food

We went to Monet's garden a few years ago, the whole place has a wonderful feel about it, worth a visit.

I have never tried Beef Wellington, but would like to!!! my OH doesn't like rare beef and I think you are supposed to eat it like that, will be interested to know how it turns out hope you enjoy it, Pam.   I keep my eggs in the garage, but I get them weekly direct from a smallholding and they are really fresh.

Have a good day what ever your doing.

When we put my M's bungalow on the market we had all sorts of od-bods viewing, asking loads of questions and making stupid comments. They wanted a mansion for a rock bottom price.

I know what you mean about the gorilla Geoff, we had our fair share of morons. there are some very funny- peculiar people about. We  thought we would never sell and then we had a couple who wanted to relocate from France, weren't bothered about the condition and bought it without a survey for cash..

It's been a lovely day here, cold but bright, will have to see if the snow arrives, We might be building an igloo too.

World without End on channel 4 tonight, sequel to Pillars of the Earth. Hope this is better than Pillars. Its got a better write up so might give it a whirl, I like a bit of historical drama.

Catch you later, better get some tea on the go. Sausage, egg and tinned tomatoes.mmmm

Chris.

Morning All.

Dull here today, but no frost overnight.

Becks, we are going through a period of things giving up the ghost. First the pump in the fish pond, then the fridge in the garage we keep for summertime use, beer drinks etc, what will be next

I hate slugs can't bare to touch them, bad enough having the ordinary size ones, but 5" long I can do without.....

Enjoy your day folks, back to the grindstone.

I'm back,. Caz and Inka

I have read a number of Louise Penny's books, thoroughly enjoyed them. Canada sounds a wonderful place, but I wouldn't want to live in Three Pines where her books are set, too many murders.  the  residents spend a lot of time at the B and B /cafe, that bit sounds okay.

The last one of hers I read was set in Quebec, and it has made me want to visit, maybe one day if I win the lottery.

I sometimes watch Food Network, but the amount of food they cook and consume is really too much, although I must say it all looks good.

Now ready for bed, good book on the go, nice hot water bottle, what could be better

Chris.
