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.

Geoff - get a box or do a treasure hunt ending with the greenhouse and then you only need to put a ribbon round its neck

Just ordered dog food - although at the moment I have plenty thinking about deliveries thought I'd better do it today. Also ordered a nice fleece royal stewart coat (It's even got a collar) for him as he does feel the cold, and he had to have a Christmas pressie. 

Right now tto clean the windows

Where are all the birds ?

After comments I think on this thread about not putting fat balls out in netting I bought 2 filled coconut shells thinking that when empty I may be able to fill them myself. I have one of those feeders with hooks for fat balls so I thoight they would be a good alternative. Today the blackbirds have arrived. They seemed very thirst and were at the bird fountain.

I to am going to try that trick for the ground feeders, Thing is i have just taken 2 old baskets to dump as the bottoms had gone, they would have been ideal. Will look in store to see what else I have.
