Mild and grey here and a bit breezy but dry so far tho rain is expected from this evening and all day tomorrow. Fine by me as we've been and done our weekly shop a day early so I could go and get magnetic fasteners for a flap on the handbag and a new zip. They have their sale on so I bought some lightweight wool/mohair mix pale grey suiting for possum to have a spring and summer suit and lining, and another zip and smart buttons..............
Raided a Vietnamese grocer's on the way back and am now well stocked with lemon grass, kaffir lime leaves and edamame beans and, wonder of wonders, some fresh pak choi and Thai basil. They have banana leaves too so I shall be diving in my recipe books for Chinese NY in Feb.
All sorts of bulbs sprouting here but most just in tubs or buckets with compost where I dumped them when emptying pots. I'll get to the later next week when I'm back from "dressing" Possum.
On the whole, I'm with Hosta are the extreme cold and would happily go and do another few days at Uluru to see the stars and meteorites. Looking forward to the Wold moon on the 31st too and will get a good view from here unless we have clouds.
Busy - I hope your home is OK and the garden and paddocks too. Have a safe journey tomorrow.
Pdoc - hope it's a bit lighter for you now.
Dove - I can pivot but not swerve. Question of toes and knees.
Joyce - THANK YOU. Feet already feeling tons less tender and twingy and I can stand on my tip toes without anything complaining after just 10 days on the curcuma.
