No rain here in Worcs today but an oh so cold wind.

OH had thermostat in Big room and couldn't get raidiator to work, it's turned off as we usually have fire alight. Rest of house is extra warm and toasty though. Fire is now lit now

Well done. My first greenhouse, that got me hooked. was the same as yours. I now have a bigger glass one but still keep the little one for plants that require just a little tlc.

It would be good of you could put in some flower beds, but if you are renting I know it is difficult. Those fences could do with covering. If you have to use pots there are clematis that will grow in them and disguise some of the fence.

Flower beds would be so much easier to maintain and would be easy to design as all you would have to do is arrange the pots on the soil first.but I thnk your plants look really good

Well done and thank you for sharing

All I want for Christmas is...

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

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??
