Morning all - just. Only half a degree of frost at 9am when we had our first coffee and since then I've been tucked up under the duvet reading and communing with a kitten and a Rasta bear. Minstrel is fine when the dogs are still but wary when they move but this morning I had them both cuddled up with just a couple of inches between them as they wooed each other. Very funny and time consuming but worth it. Cosmos, having gone form one safe home witha dog to another has no fear and has played with Rasta from the start.
Busy and GWRS - the recipe I use is very easy but I do cut each eighth of lime in two across the middle to make them less chunky. 2 days of soaking in salt then a quick cook and it's ready to use one week later.

I tried another recipe last time but it involves fermenting the limes and looked and smelt awful. OH likes it but then he likes andouillettes.
I now have my broken toe strapped to the big one and am keeping off it as much as poss so maybe some sewing today and veg plot planning. Does anyone have cut flower beds? What do you grow and do they need rotating?
Have a good day all - lovely views FG and gorgeous reptiles Pat. Have you got a pink bonnet to keep you head warm Hosta?.
