Thanks for the heads up dove. Just checked my car ( through the window) and looks ice free.
Back to the hard toil today, but at least its pay day.
Have a good day.

Thanks BL, it's been such a long time since I spent any time in the garden.

Whey hey! At last!
A day in the garden for me
Chopped, trimmed, raked, kinda mulched, still looks a blooming mess :-/
Eventually planted the last tree - amelanchier - not at the bottom of the garden as planned, but right smack in my eyeline when I look out of the window!
Remember when the big tree split and fell last summer? I've been trying to get OH to chain saw it to pieces ever since, and especially now as we have a skip for other things. He's finally stopped umming and ahhing and said "no". So decide d to plant the amelanchier in front of it anyway! Can't wait to see it in all its glory!

Has anyone tried changing their avatar recently? (not to a mugshot I hasten to add). I've tried on and off since the summer (I like a seasonal picture) but haven't been able to do it.

I go from the pic at top right of the page next to log out, then browse, choose and click save....nothing happens.

I love my rhododendron pic but not so much in winter

 The smell of pine is still the scent of Christmas to me.



I agree Frank but somehow the trees don't seem to smell as strongly as they used to do - maybe something to do with the new varieties which keep their needles better?

We had a few years taking our children to dig up a Christmas tree from a local GC, fabulous - must try to do it again this year (if the Gc still does it).

strange day - went to bed last night at 8.45, not up until 11.30  then non stop tidying interspersed with entertaining son (with stuff designated for the bin!). Odd meals made from whatever was available which actually turned out ok. Tesco online shop done for delivery tomorrow.

Runny - ken dodd!!!

Pdoc - 18th  ... not be seeing you early tomorrow then!

Matty - know what you mean about which thread - I stick on here for personal stuff, just feels better. xxx's to you

Verdun - your mums poor health seems to have been quite quick , must be still a shock and difficult for you. 

Got  illnesses here. Son had 'runny tummy' but also running around fine - been over 2 weeks, he's been sick twice in all that time. Bad mum keep ignoring it but maybe should seek advice?  And for me ... cutting down on meds but just a bit 'edgey' again, constantly weighing up if to continue cutting down or backtrack and increase again.

Still very busy so garden may not be on the cards again tomorrow

FB - 99th party! wow! get them knees up

Archie, hope COTHTR was good

Yvie - yep im also lethargic but no time either

Bob and G girl wish I was as busy as you two

BL - butterfly  cardigans

Kef - hope you enjoyed family stuff...and curry!

Dove, Fairy, Panda, chicky, Lily, lilyP,  bekki, dd, HI !!! (sorry if that gets gossipers going about cliques but Hi anyway, not often I get chance to catch up) hope no ones been forgotten , have gone through last two pages, sad I know.

OH working through night so I have an excuse for lots of noodling on here, but off to bed now.
