Rocket sticks

Posted: 03/11/2012 at 22:06

Right folks, over the next few days   go and collect all the rocket sticks you can find,  they make good free garden canes,  I got about 15 last year saves buying them  and free is always best,  I have 6 up to now as there was a few fireworks about on Halloween.

At least we know that Nigel is alright now after his accident last month,  he's such a love and I miss him already,  hopefully by the time the programme comes back in the spring he will be 100%.

It's been glorious here today,  sun from the start but not very warm,  this morning it was like a typical Autumnal morning,  crisp,  fresh and sunny not a single breath of wind lovely,   it's dropping down to 1.9c now and there's -1c forecast through the nigh.t

I suppose I'm retired now and don't have to get up early any more, but why should anyone get up at 5 unless they are working? I'd go to the loo and go back to bed!

I'm like you Busy-Lizzie,  wake up early go to the loo then go back to bed to sleep till about 8.30 when the dog comes to tell me that it walkies time I don't mine that as I used to get up at 05.30 to get ready for work,  thank goodness that's over with.

Jo,  made cakes 5 and 6 today but I forgot to put the ground and chopped almonds in what an idiot never mind I shall keep one of them and give the other to my upstairs neighbour she won't realise there's something missing.

It's been cold here today with some showers not to bad temperatur wise at 9.4c but no wind so not feeling to cold,  it has dropped right down now to 4.6c so could be a cold night

Remember to put your clocks back one hour tonight before you go to bed that way you can snuggle up in bed and have an extra hour of sleep.

Went out this morning very tentatively just in case there was black ice on the ground as I don't want a repeat of last year but it was OK,  it had been hailing about 30 minuets before hand then this afternoon it got out lovely and sunny but bitter cold,  even now it's only 2.6c  where as last night at this time it was 0.3c so very very chilly  it is supposed to warm up quite a bit tomorrow but will wait and see.

Still fog here Frank, I cant see this moving at all today still quite cool with iot as well 10.8c in the garden even the birds aren't about not that I blame them.


Jo  I know how you feel about your elbow,  my ankle is giving me some jip when I go out and I find now that I can't get my ankle long boots on as it swells through the course of the day so all I have are my pretend Ugg boots or my wellies can get shoes on OK but of no comfort now it's getting cold and wet maybe  shall hibernate till the spring comes.
