Tomorrows bonfire is getting more 'fun' by minute. One of neighbours is now out on the Green removing turf and digging a hole. Another neighbour is out there supervising with a pint and a fag. I wonder if they'll work out that the hole as it stands (well sits) isn't big enough for stuff accumulated to be burnt. OH has opted to be in charge of bonfire. Such Fun!!!!!

I also thought it was going further down - not outside the houses .....

One thing I bet there'll be more revelry than at the wedding. Jubilee there was and I organised that!

 Think I'll contribute some of my apple mountain by making an apple cake.

Brrrrrrr. Just raked up a few more leaves. OH has been mowing piles I make but thse were only small leavesand not as tough as oak so scooped them up and put them in bin. They are damp and that is good I think.

New at all this compost stuff. I ordered a compost bin - from the offer - but when it came was too small so am using it for the leaves, Thing is nearly full and oak has only just started shaking off the leaves, Hoping with wet/damp they will settle down. Leaving the lid off.

I get upset when going thru mother stuff. i agree I thunk it is far worse as she is still here. Although she has no use or need of it.

Nosey now - what firework accident?

Just spent half an hour on Skype watching granddaughter. She's getting podgy but at least she was awake. Quite funny Oscar dog barked, their dog barked back - like a conversation.

Thing id Jo when youare planning to move you have to be really ruthless, take a deep breath and get rid of stuff. Sounds as though you have made a good start - it may take some months -our clearing out did. Then Mum moved in and we are now ful of all her unsorted stuff. Parents!!!!

You can put compost in but I would put a layer of garden soil or garden compost on base with a few worms thrown in before you add stuff to decompose. but I'm just learning as well, there is a thread calle d 'what to put in compost' that may be useful

Herre we have rain, struggling to clear up =can see top of hills. Greenhouse trmp was minimum 0.5 so I guess it was about -2 outside overnight.

christmas is coming!
