Ignoring surveys on this fred.
Dull and grey but warm at 14C. Have been out to enquire about hedge cutting and compost at the local council but no go. Now to chat up the neighbours and see if they know anyone before we go thru the internet.
Himself went and had a practice on his new course this morning. Said he came across a fairly damp part and saw 3 beaver-like critters. Asked me if the region was known for having kumquats!! Didn't understand why I was so amused. Cloth head as well as cloth ears. They're probably descendants of coypu released some decades ago.
Presents are easy here in theory as there's just the 3 of us. Long since declared a present truce with the rest of the family however Possum really dislikes my continual requests for practical cooking or gardening stuff. Why don't I want perfume or jewelry or clothes? Cos I have enough to last me a lifetime and wear neither perfume nor jewelry in the garden or for schlepping at home which doesn't leave a lot of time left for being spruced.!
Clari - hope you can round up the extras needed. Good luck with the job hunt and your updated resumé.
