Christmas shopping in Maidenhead ( much joy! ), blinding sunshine but pretty nippy - still pretty good for the time of year.

Sunny and clear as a bell - can see Cliveden, Winter Hill ( the Wildwood in Wind in the Willows) and the hills above Henley - all in lovely sharp relief. A good day to venture further into the Chilterns with my camera, perhaps up to Christmas Common with its Christmas tree plantations and a lovely view across the Vale of Oxford - could get some lovely seasonal snaps!

Lovely sunny day in Marlow. Got plenty of good digging done at the allotment, leaving large lumps for the frost and snow to break up over the next few months. Ground is sticky in places, but basically not bad at all given the rain over the last few months.

No snow in my part of the Chilterns ...yet, but down in Marlow parts of town are still flooded where the Thames came over the banks. Otherwise another lovely sunny day, chilly wind, but a day to get out and get things done. I spent the afternoon putting up new bird feeders and drinking trays, so they should do alright for a while. Have a little wren who jumps all around the patio and appears to be getting insects from the geraniums still flowering in an old sink!

Glorious sunny day in the Thames Valley, and I Spent most of it shopping at Dunelm Mills and Costco (big discount warehouse) in rural Reading. I hate shopping, but at least today solved most of the Christmas logistics problems - and grandchildrens presents almost sorted! If tomorrow is as nice it's up the allotment, but I should be so lucky as the girl sang!

Lovely sunny day in the Chilterns, but very heavy frost. Spent yesterday afternoon strimming the front lawn which looks so much better for a quick trim. Also have a lovely display of Gazania's - would have thought the frosts would have finished them off,but then the weather is mad. There are still one or two carnations coming into flower at the front, so must make the most of them all before they're covered in snow!

Nice day in the Chilterns today - washing on the line drying in no time, and I spent the afternoon hoeing the flower beds and tidying up. Tomorrow, weather permitting, will strim the front lawn which seems to have suddenly got very straggly. The Thames down in Marlow is stlii over the banks and travelling over the weir at a huge rate of knots. Up on the hill we have no problem with all the rain, but all of you who are suffering have my sympathy and best wishes.

Best sunset this evening for ages! The sky was absolutely on fire, and the few clouds enhanced the effect - just brilliant. Hope my sister in The West Country had the same - the sunset over the Moor must have been outstanding. Hope you all had something similar.

Lovely warm sunny morning in Brixham, then in afternoon was up on Dartmoor, near the prison, and the clouds rolled in, and the drizzle started, it got colder - it must be me...every time I go on the Moor the weather changes for the worst!

Glorious sunny day in the Chilterns - lovely sunset just fading away. Spent the last few hours up the allotment, hoeing between swedes and winter greens, and generally tidying up. Picked some chard, broccoli and carrots to go with my potatoes and peas ( stored in the garage), all of which will go well with my steak pie in the oven! Perfect day - has set me up nicely for my trip down to Cornwall on Friday. Always nice to return to my birthplace. P.s - watch out for the jumping spiders!
