    Morning Lynn :-) that actually all sounds perfect :good: Enjoy the day :notacloudinsight:

    • Hi Jane, washing now airing, as it’s all dry,slow cooker on, just enjoying a coffee in the conservatory with some sunshine :good: :good:

    Morning Jenn :-) think we’re at the top end of the clear blue sky at the mo. Just been outside but it’s bitter! Wrap up warm – no chance you won’t really :-)

  • Some work due in December for handing in on Friday has just arrived ;-) Must get on. Have a good day and be safe :-)

    • Jez, why do they do that?! Good luck with it Jane. :clover:

    • What on earth would these daft students do, leaving everything until the last minute, if you were absolutely chok-a-blok and simply couldn’t squeeze their work in? They must have childlike faith in you, Jane – it’s quite touching.

    • Morning Jane, is that the December coming!!! As the others have said just as well you are on the ball. Hope you get a chance to take five with a coffee :good: :rose:

    • Morning girls :-) I forecast it would arrive this week ;-) Fortunately it’s a short one and I’ll be rounding up my figures when the bill goes out ;-) HAGD

    Morning Sheila :-) I really feel for you with your back! I hope it doesn’t take you too long to get upright – I can only remember my own recent experience. Try and walk around every half hour or so.
    Glad to hear about the trees.

    It’s here, Karen: http://gardenclickers.co.uk/groups/recipes/forum/topic/parsnip-and-carrot-loaf/
    I use whatever seeds I have and put it in a foil tray rather than a loaf tin. It keeps well as it’s nicely moist.

    • Doh, should have checked first Jane, thank you. It sounds lovely, not sure my frozen carrots would work, but might try a lightly “blitzed” version. ;-)

    Morning Cilla :-) sausages – I have a delivery from a local place today :good: I’m on the first of the Merrily Watkins series (by Phil Rickman) as I read one from the middle and quite like it. It all happens around Hay on Wye. Tell OH that means I can only do radio forecasts as I will never ever ever buy a frock as they don’t really go with…[Read more]

    • He he. I don’t EVER wear frocks or skirts as they don’t go with varicose veins :lol: I’m on the 5th Kim Stone novel by Angela Marsons.

    Morning Cilla :-) I opened the door – cold and windy – may or may not have a little walk in a minute ;-) Have a nice day in Uppingham – sounds a lovely place :-)

    • Most of the little Rutland market towns are lovely old places and have big private schools. We met the chef of Uppingham school out walking with his dog at Calke one day….a Liverpudlean with a great sense of humour ;-)

    Morning Cilla :-) I expect she’s checking the car and packing her cozzie!

    Hello Mick :-) sorry to hear about your family and the flu – stay strong!

  • Morning clickers :-) glad to say no snow here but it’s forecast. Hope nobody gets much of it. More reading for me today but I’ll also make a parsnip and carrot bake thing for dinner tonight. Hope you all have a good day :-)

    • Morning Jane. I’m hoping it doesn’t reach the east too. Will you have your bake with something? It sounds rather nice. Are you reading a crime book? OH says if you are going to be a weather forecaster you have to wear a “frock” and be an actress too :lol:

    • Definitely like the sound of your parsnip and carrot bake Jane, what way do you do it? Full on blizzard here at the minute. :confused:

  • RIP Dolores O’Riordan – Cranberries

    Morning Karen :-) hope it doesn’t get worse for you but the forecast wasn’t good – it’s possible the snow will reach the east today :-( Definitely check the roads! Once more, I’ll be staying in. Can’t even skip or I’ll end up on my backside! Have as good a day as possible :-)

    • Good morning Karen and Jane……looks like Karen has “slipped” off though. Be careful Karen on those roads. :-)

    • Morning Jane , forecast is dire. ;-) But not sure that it is actually that bad. If I don’t make it to the pool I’ll maybe pull out my sailing boots and go for a walk – going stir crazy here. ;-) Noooooo, no skipping in the snow, much too painful if you slipped. :bad: I find I don’t bounce as well these days. ;-)

  • Well, it’s stopped raining but of course it’s quite dark now so can’t think of doing anything outside. When I went to close the gate earlier I nearly ended up on my backside as it was so slippy! Anyone had nice weather today?

    • hi Jane :high-five: much the same here I think, a short, sharp downpour around 13.00 and then a gradual lightening of the heavens!
      this evening, we had a pretty sunset. :rose:

      • Sunshine and Showers … Was planning on going round the Botanic Gardens today but had to go to youngest daughters as had the Vet coming to her horse… Then oldest wanted us to pick up her new tumble dryer and vacum cleaner after so by the time we had delivered those it had started to rain again… His Jeep gone wrong again so good thing for him…[Read more]

  • NorthernTeacher posted a new activity comment 1 day, 21 hours ago

    Hello Dix :-) I bet you didn’t see the sea! We have rotten weather here. HAGA

  • NorthernTeacher posted a new activity comment 1 day, 21 hours ago

    Afternoon Lynn :-) we have the same weather – just had a rainbow, keep having to turn the lights on and off, very squally… Fingers crossed it clears up for tomorrow!

    Hello Cilla :-) I do the same whenever those charity bags come around – I usually find something and if it’s only a bit of stuff, it’s not so heart-wrenching :good: HAGD

    • I am taking mental notes from you lot as I read this :good: … so many sentimental attachments cluttering up our home here!!! :shout: … and those charity bags are useful … only hope that they really help someone else, and aren’t just business ploys …cynical?
      HALD All :rose:

    Hello Sheila :-) technology is only subversion if you’re not enjoying it! I never watch daytime TV as I have this silly idea that it’s time wasting but I spend hours on the internet or reading books. What’s the difference? It is important, however, that children learn that there’s more to life than a screen and books as well as pen and paper…[Read more]
