It's looking at your home through other peoples eyes that is hard. Try to do that yourself, feedback is good, 

Sunny here so am going out to plant remaining bulbs  into flower pots that I can then , when foot better, sink pots into ground. Will sit on a chair with big bag of compost and a load of pots and see how many I can do.

Christmas potatoes are still looking healthy, not felt around for the crop yet though.

One thing though, we down sized just a little, not a lot, would have found it too cramped and on top of each other if not.

I didn't have time to finish last post - was distracted.

Few years back Oscar had a back injury - I think like Nigel,MD dog - and we have to be careful as it doesn't take much to aggravate it. Mostly he doesn't act his age. After injury he is not allowed to jump and leap so no frisbee - his favourite, but he can chase a ball, no jumping at all/Also have to be careful on walks with stiles. So when he falls into car we are concerned. as his back leg is not too good. Sometimes he just approaches car boot at wrong angle

Had flu jab 2 weeks ago - had to pay! - no side effects. Won't watch Apprentice till repeat, Monday I think

Hard decision, I think, to move or not, out of area or not. We don't regret our to move away from where we had lived  along time, and further from family. BUT it suited us. Not children, relatives etc just us.

What's the weather like in your area?
