Love Buble, have seen him perform live and he is wonderful.  Can't imagine what he and his wife are going through.  Just goes to show that no matter how rich and famous you are there are some things that you can't control.

Wish him well.

Morning all, No frost here last night.  It turned a bit windy yesterday so a lot of autumn leaves blowing around. Garden still looking good, especially the roses, they are unbelievable for November.

Had an upset tummy yesterday, no idea why but that, coupled with the number of times I had to climb the stairs must have done the diet good.  Since coming off hols I have lost 1stone 6lbs so really pleased.  Would like to get up to 2stone by Christmas.

Lovely projects folks, thanks for posting.  Here is the birth sampler I stitched for my grandson.  It matches the quilt I posted earlier.  Have only just got it framed, a bit late as he was born in April.  Mind you he has only been in his own bedroom for a couple of months.

Morning all, just back from weightwatchers and have lost my 5% so feeling very motivated.  A lovely sunny day here but it is cold.  Garden still looking colourful, can't remember such a lovely October. 

Hope you manage to sort things out with Wyvale Topbird.

I would certainly get some of those glove Wonky, white finger and carpel tunnel aren't pleasant diseases.

Have a great weekend all.

Morning all, Been awake since 4.30 a.m. so now I'm really tired.  Dropped grandaughters off at breakfast club and got back early as I'm expecting a delivery today.  Had to de-ice the windscreen this morning before setting out.  Must get the frost free heater set up in the greenhouse to keep all my babies safe.  Must say it was a lovely drive home, the trees are looking beautiful and it's a lovely sunny day.  I think we have had the best October in a long while.  It's been dry and still here with lots of sunshine over the past few weeks.

If delivery arrives before lunch and I'm not too tired I'll pop over to secondborn's this afternoon to see Jonah.  Secondborn is off to Rome on friday for a little birthday break with her partner, first time she has left Jonah so she's a bit nervous.

'See' you all later

Hi folks, not sure whether to say good morning or good evening! At firstborns on nanna duty and not sleeping. 

Both daughters son in law and hubby teach at secondary schools and some of the stories I hear are unbelievable so non of the above surprise me.  

It was me that visited Scotney.  Watched the programme but didn't spot myself.  

Enjoy your hols (can't remember who  was going now)

glad you are enjoying new job Wonky.

Might try and get more sleep now.
