Well here they are - my christmas potato crop LOL

Not convinced I will have another go, of course there may be some expert on the forum who can point me in right direction - I guess about 2lb or slightly more

Cake decorated -ready rolled icing and some shop bought figures - ha what a cheat.

I've lost 2 1/2 stone, it was my Christmas target and reached it this week - still a way to go though. Probably put some on in next few days though

Early celebrations - yes.

Celebrations start tomorrow with arrival of family from up North, Sunday will be our Christmas day , turkey, pressies etc as is the only day whole family will be together.

Christmas Eve I think I'm being allowed to baby sit 

Family leave early Christmas morning for the other set of parents, son will be at work all day so we will have a small celebration meal when he comes home, daughter is also else where.

It'ss been quite hard to get my head round all this

I'm sure it will all be fine and jolly and silly

The rose is one of 3 I bought from much maligned JParkers. The variety is the Fairy, 1 pink, 1 red and the photo. I am now very pleased with all 3 


This is the name of the rose.

This is the firm I bought it from. I think they sell them individually but do not know if they export. 

Merry Christmas
