Just saying Edd .  Hope you enjoyed Newquay.

Great news Punkdoc.

GWRS Do you live near Epworth? We used to live in Haxey, the next village.

Awful afternoon and my new puppy doesn't like the rain. Such fun walking in the garden in the pouring rain 4.00 in the morning when she wakes up and I know she'll need a wee.

Hello all,

Sorry about your SIL  Punkdoc. My son had a thyroid cancer scare two years ago but was a nodule and had most of the thyroid removed. You'll know much better than me but if it's any consolation it's one of the better cancers to have (if there is such a thing).

There was a little on the news yesterday about the bush fires in Southern Australia. Really terrifying.

I'm also worried about Verdun. Has he been in touch since Ed was in Newquay?

Night night Pat. Don't let the flickies bite. My Scottish Gran used to say this.

That's a good idea Lesley. I've tried to do some Christmas ( are we allowed to mention the word  yet) preparation before she came such as present wrapping. I bought a puppy crate but she cries when I put her in. She had vet's checks yesterday and the vet said to let her cry but easier said than done.  We were told to do that with our children but I never could.

Good morning all.

Lovely photos Liriodenron.

The mother that  Hosta mentioned should be sent on a holiday destination with no internet connection. I read about a device that can attach an IPad to a pushchair. Don't parents talk to their children anymore? My son and family are waiting for an engineer to mend their Sky dish and he said, ' It's awful we have to talk to each other',  but I   think they are enjoying the experience. My grandchildren can hardly believe that when I was young there was only one hour of children's television.

Thanks for all  the comments about my puppy, Kizzy. She is supposed to be a standard labradoodle. My brother said it's really scarey as she could turn out to be an intelligent labrador. I can see why the advice is not to have a new pup at Christmas as she takes up so much time. I think the decorations and tree will have to be well out of her reach.

She's a labradoodle, Dove, but mostly labrador.

 So sorry so many of our little gang are having hard times.

 This is Kizzy my new puppy. She is helping fill the huge hole in my heart after losing my German Shepherd recently.

 Good afternoon all.

So sorry to hear about Runny's son. Hope he makes a speedy recovery. It's been a terrible week with Paris and the bush fires in Australia.

I went down the garden to pick up the last of the apple windfalls and saw this daffodil. I usually have some in flower at Christmas but never this early. On our local radio it said the daffodil growers needed a cold spell to start the bulbs into growth and the flowering might be late this year because of the mild weather and they would miss the peak time to sell the flowers.

Good afternoon all,

Not in the mood for any gardening today. Plenty of leaves to be raked up and dahlias to be cut down and covered with bracken but it is so dreary out there.

Sorry so many are feeling poorly. I've reached the grand old age of 27 so I seem to be immune to all the bugs going around (touch wood smiley) Also I was brought up on a farm and reports say that strengthens your immune system.

I read recently that Joan of Arc may have had hallucinations because she had bovine TB. We drank milk straight from the cows and neither my brother or I had to have the TB jab at school because we already  had some immunity. Don't think I have hallucinations though it was definitely Elvis who brought me a cup of coffee in bed this morning.

Very sad times.

Living in the depths of Cornwall we see very few ethnic minorities ( apart from the Cornish, sorry Verdun) but I do feel sorry for the majority of Muslims who are horrified by these attacks. Places like Sharm and Tunisia rely on tourists. We went to Turkey a few years and the locals were so friendly and loved our  grandchildren and made such a fuss of them but I'm afraid I would hesitate to go to any Muslim country now.

Good morning all,

Hope everyone is okay and surviving the winds. Sunny and calm here in Cornwall although we had some squally showers earlier.

My daughter said that Halloween  falls on Friday the 13th next year. Almost caught me out for a moment.

Just think, in another month it will start getting lighter again.
