    It’s looking anything but magical now Anne :lol: I’ve taken some bits out but there are two roses and some lavender, geraniums and shasta daisies and is in imminent danger of collapse ……I need to put sheets round it or the soil will be all over the gravel :-(

    Evening all. 6 mile walk at Watermead this morning. Home for coffee then I made cauli cheese to go with the M and S gammon tonight. I ‘ve had a lovely lazy afternoon, reading and watching Iplayer. The delightful “Italian” children came round to bring me cards they had made for us :-) . I hope you all had a good day. :good:

    Evening Anne. My blue campanula is still blooming in the “falling Apart” large planter that OH made years ago. We are waiting to take the plants out of it but they keep flowering.

    Good morning Bean. Have a lovely time at the plague house ;-) :-)

    • In times past, they would have a big black “P” painted on their front door and be shunned by the rest of society – antibiotics have made us much more tolerant. But for how much longer, I wonder? Enjoy today, Cilla.

    I only just got round to reading this Anne. It looks like the perfect pre-christmas break and a talented cook in the kitchen by the looks of it :-)

    Morning Karen. A fun saturday is the thing for you. Definitely no h/w, it’s bad for you ;-) Enjoy your day :rose:

    Morning Bean. Another busy day for you. Did you sleep well after your gruelling day yesterday?

    • Don’t sleep as well as I used to, Cilla – think it’s an age thing – but body is wonderfully rested, and ready to go again. That’s all I ask, even if it looks like a wreck.

    Good morning clickers and a very frosty one but due to warm up from tomorrow. All my cards posted or delivered now. Have a lovely saturday whatever you are doing. :-)

    • It’s a wonderful moment when the cards are actually done and can be forgotten about. I imagine it probably feels a bit like how the Righteous feel when God smiles on them. Pure relief tinged with smugness. Enjoy that feeling today, Cilla.

    Morning all. It can’t be friday again…..that means Sainsburys and the mad pre xmas hordes……..hopefully they all did their shopping yesterday on market day. Santa’s cat stays home keeping Mrs “Claws” company. :lol:

    • It soon comes round, Cilla ;-) You know cats – they’ll be waiting very patiently for your return – as long as you’ve got something for them :lol: Have a good one :-)

    • Every time you mention Sainsbury’s – I am seized by a pang of pure longing for the Sainsbury’s which isn’t anywhere near me at all. So just remember as you trudge around that shop, that there is a clicker somewhere who would like to be you. (and not just for the garden).

    Xmas day will be like any other. OH’s daughter, s-i-law and grandsons coming Boxing Day. OH going to London with his daughter on the wednesday to see Phantom Of the Opera. Are you having a picnic on the beach or seeing relatives?

    • Seeing relatives in B’ham on Sunday, we were going to go to Bridgenorth & Ludlow to see others but there have been a few admitted to hospital over the last couple of weeks (1 broken hip, and another with spinal issues) so we will delay until New Year, yes we will go to the beach again on Boxing day and watch the charity swimmers who are a brave…[Read more]

    • Evening Cilla :rose: I think it was the extra thick cream that did it :devil:
      The greenhouse is usually OK, but the rain was so heavy I couldn’t bring myself to even venture out :pissing-down:
      Do you have any plans for the :haveyoubeengood?: period?

    A request dear Walt for a very Unfestive but nevertheless beautiful Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams……just because I love it and it will remind us that winter will disappear eventually. :rose:

    Morning dix. You be careful, we don’t want any broken bones.

    Morning petal. I wish you all lived in my village, think of all the fun we’d have :lol: Sadly I haven’t seen baby hog for 3 days so I very much doubt it has survived :-( However my three foxes all look fit on their diet of dog biscuits and peanuts served nightly at Cilla’s deli :lol:
