Good morning all and hello , Bev.

Know what you mean Inka! I sometimes feel I'm invisible too.  I hope I haven't upset anyone.

I enjoyed SCD last night. Do you think Brucie sabotaged it before he went. Two of   the dancers  fell.

Also watched the Rememberance Service last night. Eddie is not my favourite royal but I think it was quite touching that he had a tear in his eye when families were talking about family members they had lost.

This is my tulip tree just changing colour. It's about 15 years old and hasn't yet flowered. Flowers will be a bonus as it's such a lovely tree anyway. One of the many ash trees behind. Will be a tragedy when they succumb .to the disease as they are now saying it will spread all over the country

Hi Bjay, I think it could be a cricket.

Lovely sunshine at the moment. I was going to do Monty's trick and pick up the leaves with the lawnmower but still too soggy.

Good morning F. Fs

Glad you survived the week Kate. My brother and SIL are teachers and are semi-retired but do supply teaching. They quite often get a call at 7.00a.m. to ask them to come in. It's a rural area with small schools with one headmaster covering four or five schools and it does seem chaotic from what they say.

Don't take your chooks to Spain, Geoff. Don't they have some horrible traditional games there with live chickens.

Hope your puss is okay.

My guess 8.15 

Is it an official competition and if so what are the prizes?

Good morning all,

Safely covered up and  bazookas away.

Get better soon Maud.

Flo can your parrot see the birds outside? I wondered how he reacted to them.

I want to finish clearing up ouside but raining now. The cosmos is looking tatty. Still got begonias and dahlias flowering. I leave the dahlias out and cover with bracken and have been lucky so far.

Went with my daughter and grandchildren to see Skyfall. I'm more of a Downton type of person and not really into action films but thought this was fantastic. Films that are really hyped up are sometimes disappointing but really enjoyed this one.

My grandchildren really appreciated your stressed out Santa joke, Geoff.

Hello Geoff, I think the gypsies baked hedgehogs in clay so the prickles would come off. Phillip Schofield is getting a bit of stick for eating a guinea pig while on holiday in Peru. I love guinea pigs but rabbits are kept for pets too and it seems  okay to eat them.

Hi Pam, I've always been pottiepam. I think I saw a pottering pam once on here but that wasn't me. 

Hi, Becks, glad you are rosy. I've been tempted to change my broadband as it seems expensive but never had any trouble with it and always get straight onto this site so maybe better to stick to the devil I know. Virgin Media.

Thanks for your help all.

Not very clear photo but I've googled your suggestions.

Hebe, leucothe, gaultheria,euonymous, choysia and some kind of conifer seem to be what they are.

They were only £6.99 for the collection and I thought they'd give a bit of winter colour and then I'll plant them out next year.

I'm looking forward to Skyfall, Chris. I'm like you with traps but if the critters stayed where they are supposed to we wouldn't have to get rid of them. I've had a rat that has tunneled through the concrete floor of the chicken house. I set a trap and caught one that was killed cleanly but another was caught by it's leg and I had to kill it myself. i felt terrible especially as it had dragged the trap across the floor and would have suffered for some time.
