Very frosty here earlier and new grasses looked great. Lawns cut yesterday ( last time?) and compost turned, surprisingly well rotted if not actually ready yet. Should be good in Spring? Now covered up and cooking I hope. Another bed dug over for replanting.
Sorry for your news YvieSt. Hope your Mum's local hospital is as good as ours. Went there last evening to see 2 new CT scanners officially launched, paid for by public donations. Had planned to buy one new one, but had so much money donated they refurbished the other to brand new standards. So can see more people more quickly ( e.g. stroke victims) and can do new things ( e.g. scan hearts for problems, non- invasively). Apparently it has given the staff a huge boost in morale. Now collecting for Breast care unit, another cause close to my heart.
Just back from Bath to see Christmas market. Only bought some English wine. But a nice visit, very good Hotel outside the city, and best veggie restaurant anywhere for lunch. .
Big Christmas music concert tonight, choir ( 120 singers) and Royal Marine band ( 45 musicians) Should be quite a din.
