What's for tea?

We had sausage with apple sauce, bubble and squeak, made from all the leftover cooked veg, including mashed swede and carrot.My Oh always said he didn't like swede, but if I mash it with carrot, plenty of pepper and butter he loves it.

I also live in Lincolnshire and are able to get the most wonderful veg' but I always check if I do have to buy at the supermarket where the veg comes from. Last week the cauliflower at one supermarket came from Holland, so it was put back and I bought some other locally produced goods.

That's sad new Inka, you will certainly miss your friend, good friends are few and far between, her garden looks spectacular..

My OH has gone to the pub with his domino mates, so it's a quiet evening in for me, might even get to write a few more cards.

Jo. Don't overdo it, there's always tomorrow.

Goodnight Dean, sleep tight. I saw on the weather forecast there could be snow in Yorkshire/Lincolnshire overnight so you might have a rough day tomorrow, especially ion the early hours.

Lincoln Christmas Market starts on Thursday and is on until Sunday. We get visitors from all over the country, and from abroad, quite an experience, with over 400 stalls this year, all round the Cathedral and Castle area. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.

Pam, you have reminded me to look at my Christmas cake, given to us some time ago by a friend, with instructions to feed it, needless to say, I forgot, will go and do it now

Hope you enjoy your show tomorrow Geoff.

Catch you later.

Good morning Jean, Geoff,Gary, and anyone else who's about.

Jean, my thoughts are with you~~~, we went through a very similar situation with our daughter almost 5 years ago, very distressing for all. The only good thing about her breakup and divorce was that she didn't have any children, so it was a clean break, no need to see THE RAT as we call him amongst other things, again. She is now very happily settled with a lovely chap. Hope the move goes well and the family will be settled in before Christmas.

Geoff, you little tinker, you've done it again. changed your name, what will it be tomorrow? The mystery choc is a mystery to me, but I will go for Sailing Ship, you being near the sea. am I thinking too much, I ask myself.

I watched The Last tango in Halifax last night, quite enjoying it, OH watched the football.

Becks, hope you are feeling better today.

Have a good one, jobs await.

Flo. Your peeler is obviously much more upmarket than mine, I just happened to spot one whilst looking for something else and have been meaning to get one for a while. Mine will probably fall apart first time I use it. Just smiling to myself about having an online conversation about a peeler


What's the weather like in your area?

Nr Lincoln.

Today started off very cold, severe frost last night, progressed to some sun, then rain showers. So all in all a mixed bag.

Just wondering how many other people in the UK bought a potato peeler today, how's that for being boring

The postman knocked at our door this morning and with a cheery "Good Moaning", thrust a box into my arms, oh goody I thought, someone has sent me a present. NO, it was for someone round the other side of the village,disappointed again.

Snap. Flo. Great minds think alike I went to the Range today and bought a potato peeler, one of the old fashioned sort, a bargain at 59p. Don't have a chip fryer though, OH has to make do with oven chips.

Becks, I was going to say crayons to go with the colouring book from yesterday, but I will say coloured pencils instead. I hope you are soon better, it seems to be hanging on.

We had a Christmas card this morning from the paper boy, I think he might be after his Christmas tip, very enterprising, now have 3 cards. Must get on and write mine, have got several to send overseas.

Good morning Gary, Geoff and all other forker who are up and about

It's, as they say in Lincolnshire,  taters here this morning, couldn't make out if we had had a slight snow fall or very hard ground frost, well it was dark when I got up.

Right Geoff, I guess its a bauble, thinking along the line of balls,-- have a good game.

Yes we shall here nothing else but babies from now on, but it makes a pleasant change from all the misery in the world.

I thought the RCP was a vast improvement on previous years, but I didn't see all of it.

See you soon, cybernetically?( I spellchecked that and guess what it's a proper word) Sorry Jean, didn't say good morning, but you posted just as I did.

umm Becks, it's not very big, so I'll say a pack of small crayons and a lollipop.

 Sorry, forgot to say good afternoon
