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

Last Christmas day was very mild. We had had a wood burner and were unsure how to lay it etc. Son came on a visit and demonstrated - it was so mild we were sitting there in T-shirts and windows open to cool down while it burnt
