Those are the Christmas' we remember Lottie that didn't seem so funny at the time, but have a good laugh about it afterwards.

We didn't have much money when my son and daughter were little but we bought a second hand chopper bike one Christmas and my son still says it was the best present he ever had. Nowadays there are some lovely toys at boot sales. They seem so expensive in the shops and don't seem to have much play value. There doesn't seem to be adverts on television for the must have toys now. Have they clamped down on them?

I took this photo out of the bedroom window this morning. It's a windmill being erected if you can't make it out. There's a big crane there ready to lift the blades up. It's about two miles away and the ash tree in front is about fifty yards from the house. We won't see it in the summer unless the ash trees succumb to that disease. Some farmer stands to make a bit of money now.

Good afternoon all,

Sorry I missed morning registration. I won't get my end of term prize now. It wasn't pluveating for a change  so raked some leaves up, but the ground is so soggy I'm doing more harm than good.

I'll have to look out for that film Jean, it sounds good.

Watched 'Last Tango in Halifax' last night and quite enjoyed that.

My daughter has just rung to see if I want to watch one of the 'Twilight' films tonight. the grandchildren have dental appointments so can go straight on from there. Quite honestly I'd rather stay in and watch Hugo in the jungle but don't want to be boring.

Hi Lottie. Comment allez vous?  ( that's the limit of my French ) We were the only ones going through the doors at the time. Still set the alarms off.

Not really exciting presents. Geoff. We concentrate on the children and buy silly cheap presents for the adults. My son plays golf so bought him something to mark his balls.

Chickens are fascinating. I read somewhere that when young chickens are starting to lay they change the way they cluck to each other. Does your chicken not gosssip with the others, Geoff? My chickens are racist. Even though they were hatched out together the black ones and the white ones stay in there own groups. The only grey one has no friends.

Normally the oak leaves stay on all winter but this year they are falling now. Maybe it's this year's weather conditions

Good morning forkers, I love your Christmas songs.

Hope everyone is okay.

Inka is very lucky to live in such beautiful surroundings in spite of one ot two problems.

Hope your change over goes well, Becks. It's always a pain dealing with two companies. they always seem to blaim the other when things don't go right.

Did a bit more Christmas shopping yesterday and quite enjoyed it although shopping is not my favourite pastime. One embarrassing incident when we set off the alarms in TX Max when leaving the shop. Everyone looked and we went back with a security guard to have our bags checked and ran the scanner over them. Nothing showed up and when he took us through the door again the alarms didn't go off.  Not a nice feeling.

Really beautiful Marion. We've got to make the most of it now. The leaves are falling fast here.

Hi Becks.

I hope you weren't wearing your speedos Geoff.  I bet you felt good after your good turn.

Hi Geoff,

Hope the hedge planting went well.

 I saw that converted toilet on one of those property programmes. It made a cosy home but some of the original tiles in the gent's loos were still in place and the thick glass tiles that formed the ceiling were still there so they could see people in the street walking above  their heads.

I've never been called for jury service but my SIL has three times. Must be my murky past

Good morning all,

Hope everyone who is not too well are feeling better and Inka is okay.

I like quirky things like the pothole gardener. We had a phase of phantom knitters in Cornwall. They wound their creations round lamposts etc, but i think the little gardens are nicer.

Horrible day today. Windy and raining. It's blowing all the leaves of the tulip tree which has been spectacular this year.

Got an appointment for a mammogram today,just routine, but will try and do some Christmas shopping while I'm in town.
