    Evening all, haven’t seen the Fox lately but know it has to be around waiting :-(
    Will keep checking to make sure it’s not trying to dig under the run too, have got chicken wire under the run but not taking any chances :confused:
    2nd day with the snow and its still around in places, blooming well cold but supposed to be improving from tomorrow :good:

    • I am very impressed with your fortified Hen area Karen. I knew it would be well fortified , but even to have wire underneath is brilliant :good: :-) :rose:

      • Yes Anne but can see why foxes are seen as very cunning creatures though as I’ve been told that they have been known to jump up and knock the gate latch so again to be safe I hang a padlock through it, got to do my best in keeping my girls safe ;-) :good:

    Evening all. Anglian didn’t come today, they are coming tomorrow. Thankfully the snow is melting and the lawn is turning green again :lol: I went to Sainsburys and Aldi this morning and to a GC after lunch for more bird food. I rang an old friend who’s husband had a stroke a couple of weeks ago and caught up with her. We haven’t seen each other…[Read more]

    • Afters Cilla, you’ve had a productive day then. :good: Glad your snow is meting – bet you are too, ;-) I decided to nip into town as I’ve been meaning to upgrade my phone for ages. Got a reasonably good deal and then spent most of the day getting everything transferred over from the old one – should have been a half hour job but our broadband is…[Read more]

      • A new phone….are you going to put Whatsapp on this one? ;-) I seem to remember broadband was slow when we lived over there. My friend is very strong and we had a laugh about how we were never going to grow old :lol: Enjoy your evening :drink:

        • Sorry honey, I don’t use whatsapp anymore, don’t trust it since facebook took it over. ;-) And have unlimited texts so no point. Broadband is super fast in Omagh (in the town) but out in the country it’s dire. In fact my phone’s 4G at the house is far faster. :lol:

    • Hallo Cilla … good day. A friend I haven’t seen since I was ill, who was also unwell, rang me back at last and she is much better :-) I am so pleased. :-) Have seen that little Blue titmouse again really does manage with only one leg, bless it :love: Just finishing some ironing :high-five: Laters :rose:

      • Evening Anne. Good news on your friend :good: These birds never cease to amaze me with their various ailments, they are born to be survivors aren’t they. :-) I still have some ironing but shall do it another day. ;-) HAGE :rose: :drink:

        • I , well we really, are getting totally hooked on the little feathered critters … little garden friends :good: :-)
          :giggle: I suspect you iron far more often than I do Cilla :giggle: You HALE too :walt: :drink: :rose:

  • Brill Cills…Just the walk I needed, stuck in my office. You always have to go up to get the views don’t you? …Its so very pretty there and looks a ideal place for a break :good:

  • Wonderful Anne….would have loved to have seen you armed with mattress etc… ;-)

    Afternoon from a cold day here in York…Another non gardening weekend due to snow…freezing…frosts..winds..Big sigh. BIG BIG sigh. Hope you all had a better one

  • Morning all, from sunny Fife, it is also incredibly cold Fife, but as I cannot go out I will just enjoy it from my Window whilst working. I had Plans to Batch Bake, I have a six ft one 13 year old Grandson, who is costing his Mum mega bucks for Pizzas, these are so cheap and easy to make, as already have a big Bag of mix with everything in it,…[Read more]

  • I’m very impressed by thoughts of you outside in this Arctic weather in order to catch these photographs for us – especially as the cat won’t feel the cold. I think Alfie is so well fed that he no longer tries to […]

    Morning clickers. Lovely and sunny start here. Some snow is lurking but the roads are clear. May pop over the plot a little bit later – I need some fresh air and work off some of the weekend’s baking ;-) HAGU whatever you are up to :good:
  • I feel totally exhilarated from the depth of my armchair, Cilla – and can quite see that this was a wonderful experience which I really enjoyed. I could feel the wind on my cheeks, and I was just as nervous on […]

  • It looks absolutely beautiful outside this morning – sunshine in a cloudless sky – but the big question is, has THAT WIND gone? It’s a foodbank morning today, and afterwards we are celebrating the 80th birthday of a male volunteer with lunch and a garden centre voucher – and I can kid myself that if it wasn’t for birthday celebrations, I’d be…[Read more]

  • This is a different cat Anne, a grey and white one and much younger,just as nonchalant though :lol:

  • Morning all, a chilly night, but the sun is shining and the temps are climbing :good: Pilates this morning, a possible catch up with friend over coffee? Have washing on, so must get a wriggle on together it out on the line and the next lot in. HAGD all :rose: :walt: :-)

  • Morning clickers :-) still mega cold but the bird bath has water rather than ice in it at the mo. The ‘other’ spring starts this week so let’s hope it means it this time ;-) Have a good day all :-)

    • Morning Jane. I’ve always understood that spring starts on 21st March, I don’t know where other dates come from. It still felt prety cold out there and the conservatory roof is still covered, nothing has melted much. :fingers-crossed: the thaw starts today. Are you working? :-)

    • Morning Jane, my poor frogspawn was frozen all day yesterday, :-( just hope plenty was deeper down where it wasn’t frozen.

    • Morning Jane. Roll on spring whenever it’s due – and changing te clocks is coming up soon, isn’t it :dunno: Forgot to bring my bag of compost into the kitchen and I now have a solid, frozen and immovable snow covered lump to deal with before I can sow any seeds. Would the OH think me mad if I took my hairdryer to it? :lol: HAGU :good:

  • cilla posted an update 17 hours, 14 minutes ago

    Morning all. Went to feed cats etc and then saw it was 6 not 7…..whoops :lol: Wondered why the heating hadn’t come on! On 2nd mug of tea now.mAnglian should be coming at 8.30 to start on gutterings and soffits but whether they do or not is yet to be seen. I should be going to Sainsburys but I bet the car park is frozen :-( Looks set to be sunny…[Read more]

    • Ooops, bet the moggies were a tad surprised. :lol: We watched Brooklyn too, and thought it was very good. Hope the snow naffs orf quickly for you honey. :good:

    • Hi Cilla :-) hope your workmen can work today! Frozen car parks are lethal – take care :-)

    • Also watched Brooklyn last night – thought it was a real woman’s picture for a change – cannot really get into all the Capt. Marvel type films being made nowadays. If Sainsbury’s have any commercial sense, surely they will have their car park cleared for customers? I do hope your day is cosier than expected – think we are all fed-up with winter…[Read more]

    Morning Clickers, another big brrrrrrrrr morning here, but I’ve just had a lovely walk with Cilla, from the comfort of the warm, and it was smashing. :love: Pool isn’t open till 1pm today, :disappointed: as it is the bank holiday, so not sure I’ll bother. Feels like a faffing day. ;-) So more coffee till I decide. :lol: Have a good day all and…[Read more]

    • Morning Karen :-) a free day for you then :good: I don’t have any work today apart from replying to a student who thinks I should do her work and yet not charge her very much! Very cold and windy but some bits of blue sky. Hope to get outside asap. HAGD

      • Morning Jane, typical student then. :lol: It’s bitterly cold here too, might be a book and coffee day. :good: Good luck with introducing your student to the real world. ;-)

      • Ah – the boundless optimism of youth! In a few years she will remember this assumption with embarrassment.

    • Good morning petal. I’m glad you enjoyed your walk, especially as you won’t get your swim ;-) Is OH home if it is bank holiday? Getting a bit fed up with faffing, we want to get going on garden things now. Enjoy your day whatever you get up to. :-)

      • Morning Cills, loved my early walk. :love: A is working as he has a team in doing maintenance. It’s that brutal wind that is being a pain, though I’m probably procrastinating. ;-) Have a good day yourself. :good:

      • That wind is really something else, and I feel deeply sorry for the Russians that they have to put up with it for a lot longer than we do (as if Putin isn’t enough to contend with). It’s definitely a day for faffing in front of a good fire, or with the boiler firing on all cylinders.

  • Wow, what a beautiful area Cilla, stunning views and great photos. Thank you for my lovely early morning walk; I thoroughly enjoyed every step. :rose: :clover:

  • Lovely healthy, well cared for looking cat Anne. If they get up the tree, they can usually manage to get down. ;-)
