Hey Good Looking.....

Thanks Busy-Lizzie. I'm a bit OCD on the cleaning front! 

Im learning a lot here; I've never had clapshot but want to give it a go now!

On the lamb front, I just can't eat it because of the cute factor and the short life. I know it can be contradictory, but it's just one of those things for me.

Oooh show us your mince pies! Im just chilling my pastry. Work in progress.....

Hello Peeps, anyone slaving over a hot stove? Would love to know what you're cooking...I'm making a vat of butternut squash soup using some onions from the garden...here it is, yet to blend though.....going to whip up some tasty little mince pies later with my own twist on the filling. Yum yum, bubble gum!

What are good quality tools for beginners

what a thoughtful hubby you are Norton2. I'm with Gemma and visiting second hand places or scrap yards. 

If there isn't one near you though there are plenty of other gifts. Some of my favourite gardening presents are;

new wheel barrow

cold frame

hive shaped compost bin

book on how to propagate

labels (great stocking filler)

gardening gloves

seed trays ( good quality sturdy ones )

kneeling pad

good quality garden string

arch to grow things over

raised bed

the wooden garden desk and the green plastic garden tidy in the photo below

Do any of you put your wellies by the radiator when it's chilly? 

We've got the log burner going here. 

I love reading about everyone else's weather. 

Its VERY cold here in Notts.

For me, it's a toss up between Mary's Boy Child by Boney M and Little Donkey!
