another favourite Muppet to go on the list

Sorry realised when out that I was so busy wondering who Scrooge was I forgot to say HI to Kate

Just been up to our local shops - like a proper village centre and today was Christmas Market day. it is organised by the traders for local charities - Santa was in the travel agents, face painting in the toy shop (that's a good money earner) Hairdressers were wondering round in costumes, one was an Easter bunny, and the puppet show was outside the undertakers, which was decorated with flags!

At greengrocers bought 3 plastic veg trays for £1, and then bought local water and cider for some Chrissie pressies..

Still not sorted out frost protection in greenhouse, but there is the rest of the day,

Oh - the one who disappeared into education of sums land. That case Scrooge can be as miserable as is Scrooge's nature

Just watched a few seconds of that georg - is our version Bob Flowerdew?

Sorry 

Morning All 

Dog had me up again . On the third time (1 am) I picked up his bed, made him follow, put a water dish in the corner and tucked him up in the hall. I heard him pattering around and thought he'll be up stairs but no. When OH got up he was curled up on his bed and didn't move. So all curled up and toasty (new quilt) I to had the rest of the nights sleep. Hooray.

Garden today - to frost proof an area of the greenhouse, to replenish bird feeders and have an attempt at making a wood pigeon free bird feeder for blackbirds - Jo's idea

Then, hopefully, another nights sleep to look forward to

Oh and sometime I have to get on with the ET's

Thanks Flo. we think its foxes set off the security light, and maybe reflection in the plastic bird feeders. 

We have to have a made to measure blind and the firm said they would try and get it before Christmas as it was urgent!! All over a daft dog!!

Yep. Every night for last 2 weeks or so I put him and me to bed and sometimes before I have got into bed he starts barking. I come down he stops, then just as I doze off he starts. it was only once last night but we are all suffering from lack of sleep. There is a new light at the building at the back that is movement sensitive and that sets him off, but sometimes there is nothing. Today we went to a blind place and ordered one - we always said we wouldn't have one because of the view but, you know , desperation. I may put him in hall tonight but then there is the difficulty of where he will sleep ie probably outside bed door or something equally tricky. He is 12, and feels the cold but I don't think it is that.
