No no no Lesley ! It means we are ready for wallpaper! Tiles agreed. Blinds ordered. Cushions hiding in my car so OH doesn't know how much they cost! 

Ventured out out and not only do we have frost...there's ice in the wheelbarrow too. I'll be paying for my neglect come spring next year, lavenders still out, poor poor lovely brugmansia only just whisked into garage, still will need more attn.

took some photos, will put on gallery as they aren't exactly a starring role, well actually they are for me...

Good morning.
Dove, I had an early night too - 8.30! Straight after son went up. But I deserved it as had given skirting boards an extra lick of paint after tea. Didn't wake until my alarm went off.
Another dry sunny day, not looking forward to temperature when I do venture out though.
Not sure what day its going to feel like today - yesterday felt like Friday all day ( a bad one at that) - not a great start to the week!
oh! Just looked out of the window - seems someones stolen all the leaves from the ash tree - im sure they were there yesterday...

very true fairy, I've had two good years of them so next year may prove fatal ( la venders I mean). Just an opportunity for something new!
Sunny and cold here.

Morning folk.
Agree with Clari , David, a detour via Sheffield would be worth it and cheaper than one night stay in the big smoke!
Dd you are so organized, put me to shame! Must, must get in the GH and make room for overwintering if I do nothing else. Already worried about lavender stoekthingy, gave it a clipping at the right time but think a bit too close to the bone (not into old wood but now looks very sorry for itself), the least I can do is give it a bit of warmth over winter.
At last something is looking brown and autumnal - just the one hosts! Everything else is green and zingy! Well maybe not quite zingy... The fushia is putting on a superb show, more flowers than ever! Will try and get a pic.
Back to school for kids, back to routine, back to loads of traffic...bring on Xmas hols!

Ooops they ended up annoying me so met with an untimely spade incident and made way for a tree.

Would love to see samf's !
