I like the design and colour of the curtains. Such patience with those patches... As for fire alarms - I shall not comment!

I can do without chips but I liked everything else in this post especially the biscuit tin, that is really pretty.

How odd to see long tails on sheep, they are usually docked when the lambs are young, aren't they?

How marvellous, you must feel very proud. And, what weather for it!

I hope you manage to cope with Committee work, I hate it with a passion. What a lovely thing to do for Rachel, she is so excited at the thought of being a Grandmother.

Oh, I missed it, how did it go? Not that I expect an answer in the negative!

We came home from Argyll via Gretna Green, we didn't feel the need to get married either. I do wish that Subway would use bread that has substance, it is all so light and airy, not at all substantial. I was warching a pair of House Sparrows today, such energy!

I have enjoyed the wander enormously, thank you Anne.

Thank you for letting us know about Alice, she has been missed. I didn't know about Julie and Sam, so I now have two new things to read, the others I have read. You Bluebell is the Spanish breed, just like mine...

The lack of debating societies in schools is what has lead to the deplorable use of English in general. It should be on the school syllabus all over the UK. Oops, sorry Anne that turned into a bit of a rant. You did very well to have achieved that at such a tender age.

What an achievement Anne. Do you have a Scottish accent or did they beat it out of you?

I was a Girl guide and we had a similar tie, it was also very good as a headscarf or a makeshift shopping bag.

You have a lovely collection of ssea glass, I like the pieces of pottery too. Malcolm's bookcase is looking good already.

It was the same here yesterday but I am pleased that it has gone now. The sweater looks good, I hope to see Fraser's Dad wearing it.

I hope you will keep it up there, I can't get about if it comes here! That was quite a fall wasn't it? Do you have the monopoly on House Sparrows? You could send some of those down...

1 reply
We had about half an hour of fast snow but it didn't last long and I was indoors. I like those cheese savoury sandwiches but have yet to work out what is in them. I envy Malcolm the Amaretti and the tin. I had a tin of soft ones some years ago, they were gorgeous. I do like those Belties, I hadn't seen them before I went to Scotland.

Someone told me that there are as many calories in fruit as there are in chocolate - all that sucrose, you see.

No snow here, thank goodness. I like it for one day then it has to go. I can't drink tea any longer, it simply tastes awful now, no idea why. Instead I drink fruit infusions, made by Jeeves and Jericho Red Berry Burst and Blackcurrant Pop, they are so flavourful! http://www.jeevesandjericho.com/en/23-fruit-tonics#sthash.6q4yRjtz.dpbs

I think Malcolm is going to be very busy for the forseeable future! Snow near the sea always looks colder than elsewhere to me. Brr.

Those poor Sparrows look so confused. I can live quite well without chilli in chocolate! Your owl bauble is very pretty.

I don't have a TV and when I did I could find very little to watch of any quality. At OH's house, he has lots of channels and still sometimes we struggle to find anything worthwhile. I always used to make chilli with pork mince, I prefer it to beef; I like the idea of your cauli/carrot rice, did you eat it raw or steam it?

Such a good idea to stay at home this weekend; my friend in Argyll had no power for 12 hours and is still without the internet. You certainly don't want to get stuck in snow.
