Wind is certainly having fun with Forkers gardens today 

Just been on phone to legal people, workshop, manufacturer to try and get my caravan damp problem sorted out. It's all down to when is a seal a permanent seal and not a replaceable one. It seems the seal that seals where the windows are cut out is not a permanent seal so if you get damp you have to pay and not the warranty £500 approx. 

Sorry not in mood to play at moment

What's the weather like in your area?

Very windy and now the rain has started again.

Not sure after yesterday how much more the ground can take.

Total rain from about 9 pm on Tuesday to 10 am today was 36mm, measured in my little gauge in the garden

Hooray we are going to have festive faces

No sofas??

Last year as I was so fed up of people commenting that we had  no rain here I asked for a rain gauge for Christmas!  I read it every day. Oddly since I had it we no longer have drought

Sorry everyone.

Whoops. I forget to proof read!

Should read 'great' not 'grey', what a terrible mistake Sorry

Surely you get the idea of everything else. And I know there is a spell check.

My family all moan about my texts because I never check them

After a lot of moaning I just sent big son texts without predictive text so he just had the first letter on the key. He's intelligent so I let him work the message out!

Rain has started

OH has a Kindle equivalent - it keeps him very happy

Worrying though when litle ones have coughing fits. Hope she is wide awake and full of bounce now.

Morning all

Am I going to be the only one to say something about your Christmas list Georg - No second thoughts I won't say anything

Flo I hav e a wheelbarrow on my list - I quite like the idea of a lilac one! 

My OH was always complaining that I wouldn't let him mash potatoes in my teflon saucepans so I did the only thing I could. Bought him a stainless steel saucepan and a metal potato masher as a Christmas present.

I have been given permission to accompany OH to supermarket this morning. He has promised not to moan when I look at things! 

The cheese wedding cakes are popular. When we first saw a picture (royal wedding time) we thought it was a joke.

OH just come back from walking the dog in the wood and he says   there is a sign up asking that dogs, footwear and clothes are cleaned of leaves mud etc when leaving it. Good idea but how do you rub down a large dog who only has to look at mud to get covered in it. His tail very long, waggy and hairy (the sort that can clear a coffee table with one wag!) also is a magnet to leaves. Easy to clear them, not so easy on the mud clearance. Though we will of course try

Me to Lottie, yummy smoked salmon from a local man bliss.

we do have a local specialist cheese shop. He stocks locally produced cheese, and a cheddar that is matured in a cave in Cheddar. (getting some for a Christmas treat) Most of what he has is from unpasteurised milk and is lovely and he knows his suppliers(dairies). Bit of a character as well!

He makes cheese wedding cakes.

I'm off to bed. Night
