Spring! Spring? Did someone mention spring?

Crinkle-free and shopping for Clematis even though I already have eight to plant in spring

Re dieting, I guess we will burn off some excess as soon as Spring pops We all know hard work then!

DD thanks for treating the lonely pony and George, steady yourself old chap, plenty more fussing where that came from

Nothing better than a personal recommendation Dove

And finally punkdoc it will arrive, but brisk walks in the meantime is a golly good idea and another reason to own a dog

Oh well, day off today and its really gusty outside but also clear skies. We had our only serious snow shower yesterday, with the early ice flurry followed by the fat floaty stuff. I nearly burst a vein laughing at Flynn chasing the stuff. Surffice to say, it didn't lie

Talking of lying, I'm bath in the bath with my tablet, so before I drop it again ta ta for now

Wow Chicky, it is indeed!

 And happy B Day cake baking later. Can I clean out the bowl like we used to as kids before raw egg scares

Wow Granma what big teeth you have to wake us all up with

Good morning everyone here already or yet to come on-line.

I do hope Verdun was okay yesterday. I tend not to comment on sensitive subjects because be honest, I always feel as though I am pushing my nose in where its not wanted. I know most people would say nonsense, but its always been how I feel about it. I am extremely over the top private about personal stuff so, I guess I just assume others are as well. But the show of support on this forum is lovely, long may it continue

So, I have been keeping up reading all your chit chat but Im afraid I was just too darn tired to reply after my covering shifts. Two days off now before I go back to my usual rota on Sunday

I brought home custard donuts for my men, sometimes its white chocolate cookies and whilst I cant indulge in those, I can't stop eating chocolate at the moment so every day I am beginning a new diet which then fails by supper time. Oh dear, what you gonna do with me?

Home from covering-shift at bakery and reading back all your comments. Talking about donuts which ofc I bake at my is slightly annoying when I get customers asking for them at 8am. We open at 7, I've been working 1.5hrs already, I've got sausage rolls, loaves of bread and pastries to get out along with all my defrost and I'd quite like my breakfast break thank you very much so...NO  I haven't got any donuts yet, come back in 1 hour

Clari, he's perfect and that adorable pic of him being comfy on your lap is proof.

SwissSue, what a lovely looking dog

Yvie, I sympathise with teething children although its too long ago for me to remember my own, OH was always the night nurse as I never had patience. I did everything else which was fine by me

Panda, good luck with finding something else. I don't know your specifics (and that's completely fine) but I will say that sometimes in life we just need to do something for ourselves for once.

Verdun, I am really tempted by your newest arrivals

It's terribly cold here. Snow did land yesterday but hardly more than dandruff that duly froze overnight. I went to work in my Timberlands so I didn't slip over, still patches laying about in the dips and toughs and actually...its a good way to tell the colder parts of one's garden. I knew my East facing fence was not the most tropical part of my garden but I am surprised to learn of a couple of sheltered spots I didn't previously know about.

Going to entertain myself with some garden design stuff, deciding exactly what hard landscaping to do this year and if I really do want/need a greenhouse although Matt and KEF's comments are certainly helping

Stay safe everyone

Oh wow Verdun. 

Cold here at 4 degrees. Nothing to do in the garden so joining punkdoc on the stir-crazy step

Oh well, design time with a number of clematis to place if I can ever make my mind up

Morning you two! Thanks for the spellchecker tip EDD

 The moon cycle is near a full moon which keeps me awake every month EDD. Last night there was a large circle around the moon that was a different shade to the sky. It had an airplane tail running through it so it looked really cool, like a broken hearted donut.

Don't know what the weather is doing here, I'm still in bed while OH takes FLYNN for his walk correction, he's just legged it up the stairs and into my bed and rolling on my face. Spelling mistakes courtesy of FLynn
