Just stuck my head outside the door.(to call in cat) The bird fountain is freezing up

Thanks for that Caz. Will give it a go but if my cat won't come in birds will desert us.

That looks lovely. Maybe when little one is older......

 I thought earlier today I may get my Mum a choco one. She might appreciate it. Especially as she loves Choco

The problem here is the broad band, too many people on it and CRASH

What's the weather like in your area?

Today started off lovely and sunny but very cold. Now the cloud is moving in and it is getting dark.

Thanks for those hints Gary. Have looked on Amazon and placed one into basket though not bought yet. May add to it.

I tried to watch last weeks Apprentice last night but apparently I hadn't sifficient flow or something. In fact it's the usual Thursday thru weekend problem so I now have 2 Apprentice to watch and 2 Last Tango's!

New tyre on car is now totally flat!! Next door neighbour is going to investigate later.

Just been swimming, it's great I don't sink any more 

Had some more roses delivered, no e-mail notification this time. " I should be able to plant them, but  one will have have to go in veg bed.

Still have roads closed here as the surplus water just does not have anywhere to go..

Very quiet again on here just popped in as I was going to watch iplayer but couldn't get onto it. Thought I'd try here after 10mins and I'm on, but too late for programme I wanted.

Have been out today covering plants and protecting my 2 olive trees as it is cold and bright and will be colder tomorrow with 'wintry showers'. We still have road closures in this area from the flooding but not as bad as other parts of country.

I have a clematis montana, it was plantde in the spring and now the leaves have dropped am surprised at its progress. It will ramble up through a lilac eventually. it's a pink one

had some books and baby toys off Amazon today so I guess Christmas is actually on the way. OH got 'Christmas' down from the loft as well.

My one was a freebie from some offer or other, the other this year was from Morrisons - a gift at jubilee time. I would have thought any garden centre etc. Just keep looking
