We were so fed up with visiting cats, birds (wood pigeon cooing by the fridge freezer) mice etc that in this house we decided not to have a flap. Thank goodness as there is a rogue cat that visits houses with flaps. eats food in kitchens and terrorrises cats. It does have a home. but our 2 feel safe as they know it won't come here.

Just spent a pleasant 25mins skyping with grand daughter - AAAAH! 

Just put wreath on door, now to do some internal decorations.

Yay  I got it right 

Christmas lights are going up on the green as I write. Last year us neigh bours put money in the kitty and bought 2 extra long strings of solar lights for the fir tree . Will post photo later. Some of the folk in road weren't living here then,perhaps they'll decorate another one. For the jubilee we all decorated a tree each - not practical to have bunting.

Afternoon all - Late again!


Just been to local farm shop, they said the waters only went down to get access to them last week but even now can only get to them one way,

We went for local produce for a hamper for SIL - never know what to get them, The others garden so that is sooo easy. Anyway ended up with a Christmas Tree , but we have arranged to visit Cannock Chae on wednesday to buy one with the IL's. 

This is a Fraser Fir, pretty, and it has roots. Farmer said put it in water for 48hours, then plant it and may take. OH has just made a comment about how he is going to get a large pot full of compost and tree into house. Der never thought of that and he was with me when bought it. Any one out there in cyberland know about trees and roots and stuff??

Dog only barked 3 times after I went to bed last night, was a sleepy bark so didn't get up to him. Hooray. He was in the hall again. Good nights sleep by all
