Feeling really cold - sorry Jo - so just lit wood burner. Was a struggle to get it to go usually 1 match and whoosh away it goes - 5 matches later it has decided to flame. Could be different sort of kndling, not sure. perhaps it was damp after deluge during night - I lay it to light when it is really cold so not every day.

Cake looks like the sort my kids used to decoreate fot their Granddad. He always ate it! Like Dad's/Mums who eat pastry that has been squashed and pumelled to make a jam tart or whatever.

Don't worry about it.

What's for tea?

Love a bit of sparkly stuff myself. Just wish I'd joined Forkers earlier. Used to look at it and want to join in.

So glad I can now enjoy this celebration.

Can we have ChelseaBuns as part of celebration.

Still not got a satisfactory pole! Just looked at Wilkinson web site, may be something there. Will go up to store later.

Love that cartoon Geoff - in a previous life that would have been me - bed late, up early, no time for anything else!

O don't really think this avatar works. Will do better next time

I'd stick to more layers and staying in. At least you can see what men are up to.

In our previous house there was always stuff that needed doing - fence, gate, paving slabs, major stuff so we moved and ended up gutting

house and garden!!! Mind you, would n't have spent the money on old house. Felt ti wasn't worth it.

Stafford - Do you llive in Hedgeford then, Becks? Been trying to work out whhere you are by clues ! 

Going on hunt for more suitable curtain pole in minute.
