Hi Nola and thanks for the info about the musical. My sister had the LP back in the 60's I think, must ask her when I see her.

Hope you enjoy Les Mis, Bjay, we are going to see it when the rush has died down, really looking forward to it, I just love the music.

What's the weather like in your area?

Nr Lincoln.

Been snowing here since mid morning. We had had about 3" so far, but it is slushy at the moment. Frost expected overnight so travel will be very difficult tomorrow.

Morning All.

We have snow, more expected over the next day or two. but after today we don't have to go anywhere, just need to go to Drs to collect prescriptions, down to M's to see her , then card shop, we have loads of birthdays in January in the family. After that it can do as it likes. Do feel sorry for people who have to go out or work in it though..

We have been watching a collared dove taking twigs into the conifer, what's that all about someone should have a word and tell them its toooooo early to be nesting.

Pam. those Beef Wellingtons look delicious

Think we will be catching up with TV over the next few days, soon be bored. Geoff has been watching Peter Kay, love that bit about the dinner ladies.

Have a nice day

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.

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.
