• Lovely blog, Jane – really enjoyed my 5 mile walk around Bradgate ;-) If I am just going to Tesco I go by the little one-car-width back roads and on coming home the other day 4 does and a small buck with little […]

    Morning all. Today looks like a day to not open the curtains. It has been lashing down and dark enough to still need the lights on. Coupled with the dwindling & now completely stopped water supply, it looks to be a fun day! Word on the internet grapevine is that a few local villages are affected but a technician is on the way so hopefully it…[Read more]

    • Morning Jenn :-) no tap water is no good at all – one cup of tea per brew for you, I think!! Fingers crossed the men sort it :fingers-crossed: Sounds good for the onions :good: Bleak here, so it’s a reading day and I don’t mind that at all as I’ve been given some ‘new’ books this week :walt: Take care :-)

    Morning all – cold, wet and windy here in Essex so far today – perfect weather to not garden :confused: House stuff and then nipping into Saffron Walden to do a few errands. OH needs some links taken out of the strap/bracelet(?) of the watch I bought him for our 25th anniversary and we’ll probably stop for a coffee. Nothing else planned – some…[Read more]

    Morning clickers and HAppy Birthday to Karen @vegvamp. A bit warmer today than yesterday but an absolute mudbath. OH is out the front cutting our side of next door’s hedge and I am feeling guilty because I haven’t got anything done – up too late reading :lol: Had better get my bum in gear before it’s dark. HAGU :good:

    Afternoon Anne. Jumper, fleece & walking socks today…it’s more the damp rather than the cold :excruciating:

      I think that you are extremely brave and noble to go and garden at all today Jenn. Around 14.00 it started raining here too :-( I like rain, but have had enough for a while :bad: :-) Take care in the slippy mud out there!! :-) :rose:

    Afternoon clickers. Just in for a bite of lunch and then I may brave the cold soggy garden again :excruciating: l am tackling a corner of the garden that is a bit inaccessible due to a twisty hazel that has grown like nobody’s business. I used to have it in a pot but thought I’d like stems for cutting so bungled it in the ground. It is now…

    Hi ladies. I love the series and have recently finished the newest book – The Secret Commonwealth – the second in the Book of Dust trilogy which prequels & sequels the original HDM trilogy. I eagerly anticipated the start of the series and sat down on Sunday night with my cup of tea and high hopes. Sad to say I was disappointed. The BBC have…[Read more]

    Morning clickers from foggy Essex. Not cleared yet so may have to wait a while before I can get outside. Have started putting the garden to bed – a little bit of tidying – nothing too drastic so the fuzzies and buzzies have somewhere to over winter. Nothing done yesterday as I had to get my non-gardening clothes on as myself and the OH went…[Read more]

    Morning clickers. It’s as black as Newgate’s knocker here, the rain is almost horizontal and the gales are gusting….shopping will have to wait until later when all this weather guff passes. OH is watching the rugby and l am going to read for a bit. Will see what state the garden is in later :excruciating: Have a good day my luverlies.

    Morning clickers. Grey & rainy here but not to worry as I am having a lazy day off. Going to have a PJ day, drink lots of tea and read my book as this past couple of days have been a bit manic.

    Morning all and Happy Halloween. 7-8 teenage boys descending on us at 5 o’clock so I need to go and get some snacks and drinks. The house is decorated – Garrett bought an outdoor projector that has different slides (Halloween, Christmas, birthday, St Patrick’s Day etc) and we gave it a test run yesterday. It’s really good and himself is…[Read more]
