HELLO FORKERS!

Posted: 02/11/2014 at 08:39
Morning all - in bed with a bucket of tea at the moment - looks a bit wet & windy outside. Have a nice day at the museum Clari. My OH was a miner many moons ago so I've done a few coal based days out including the excellent Big Pit in Sth Wales. I'd like to know how good the National is.
For some reason my poor puddy tat seems terrified of me this morning & is not himself at all - think 'something' must have happened last night - maybe the fireworks - maybe the new cats who've moved in next door but one. Hope I get to the bottom of it soon.

Lots of whizz-bangs going off around here in spite of the fireman's strike & their request to delay bonfire parties till next week and also in spite of the fact that this is very much horsey country - hope they're not too frightened 

Better get the cat in although I think he quite likes watching them...

Favourite garden task?

I love a good hand weeding / tidying up session - especially the first proper one of the year when the sun is just starting to feel warm for the first time in ages. The results make the garden look tidy & good, there is the satisfaction of having been out in the fresh air getting some exercise and the knowledge that the weeds take longer to start growing again at that time of year.

Once I get my head down & my bum up (sorry ) I would be there for hours except the still-early nights stop me doing too much at once. 

And that first al fresco cup of tea sat on the bench with no coat on & the sun warming my face is something to cherish!!

Lovely brekkie thanks Dove.

Right - I'll go and help with the clearing up then we need to be off - I have to be home for lunchtime. Has anyone seen Panda this morning? - she probably slept in the tall grasses so she felt more at home  - hope she'll be ok on the journey home 

I've just grown this in my oven...
