Geoff can recommend York - great place to visit.  

When we were looking for somewhere to live we went all over. Found some great places. Some just seemed OK to visit, not to live, some we looked into a bit further, and we ended up here, it was initially maybe 5th on the list but it fitted our criteria we set  and the more we looked the clearer the criteria became, the more it seemed right. Does that make sense?

I just used to read all posts. then one day was a bit fed up so took a leap into the unknown, specially with forkers. Took me longer to pluck up courage to join this. Still giggle when i think about my welcome pack  

Did take a while to work out who everyone is, still does sometimes 

All I want for Christmas is...

OH gone to pub - he takes the monthly quiz there. Surprisingly it's not  a Christmas one. Gives me an evening by myself - great.

Daughter just rang - supposed to be meeting her for lunch tomorrow but she forgot it's her day off so now won't be out for day. OH says we'll go somewhere else.

Inka that is sad, you need to make the most of good memories while she is here. Her garden looks wonderful

Deanthat would be great - all offerings greatfully received. Have sent you message about a couple of other things. 

Receipt is not really a problem

I have solar lights on spikes in back garden, 2 lilies and 2 butterflies(fairies) in the fairy garden. I thought the lilues had stopped working but found that once I'd cleared border of surplus grass plants they now shine.

Not sure if I should have brought them in for winter or not though

Still have Christmas wreath to make, out all day tomorrow so I guess it will be Friday.

NB to me do all competitions before I go

Hi all

Good to hear from you Jo. 

Half way through cleaning windows realised should have been at mothers care home for monthltymeeting. Grabbed a Christmas tree, 2 cards and went in my house cleaning best..

Only just got back. Quickly put up new solar lights outside front. Easy-wrap them round the porch pole and drape them between hanging basket hooks.

Don't look too bad, charged up solar cell during day on cleared window ledge.
