afternoon Forkers

Sorry I'm late - weigh in day

Then went up and down the hill Christmas shopping. Very hard work here - shopping!

Managed to get some fire lighters and some outside solar light -static-to replace ones I can't find. If they turn up it's fine as want some lights permanently up on an arch in the back.

Came home to find dog curled up on very small armchair - he was so firmly wedged he couldn't even wag his tail or get off chair. Then he went soppy because we laughed at him. 

Chocco of day - snowflake

My first effort

Had a time when I just couldn't get through here.

Thought i might have missed the competition but I don't think so. everyone is talking Christmas cards. Not bought any yet!! Plan is to get some tomorrow. Last year I used up all the odd ones from previous years so really have none.

mind you when looking for outside lights found a bag with Christmas card for OH from last year. Couldn't have given it him!! perhaps i boughtanother one 

I have ivy for my wreath. 11.30 last night removed it from next door but ones bin. Well he was throwing it out and I needed it.

Well is competition time up yet??

Therr are those blocks that you can lay for drives as well and they have holes in them. Looked into it once as you then sowe grass seed int hem and you have a sturdy, level attractive piece if grass which would also be in a pattern from the  blocks.

This is just an idea I think there are others as well
