    Pansy - Chive's nomination for writing rather than quilting is seconded!

    I think it sounds as though progress is being made on the feline front. Maybe Elsa is gaining a little confidence and now regards upstairs as her territory and is starting to defend it instead of running away. I suspect at some stage there will be a showdown but, so long as it's more about who knows the most feline swear words and can shout them the loudest for longest, that's a good and normal thing to happen. 

    I seem to have done sod all today - and I spent all day doing it🤔. Nipped outside to do some weeding and got rained off, made a phone call, spent hours on t'interweb.

    It won't do - really it won't.

    Too it’s been that sort of day though I did buy a bird table. From a little local shop so hoping the birds use it and the cats let them! Lots of very loud fireworks here must be costing a fortune. Chey good news about your health. PF looking forward to the further adventures of the kitty cats

    Very quiet on here tonight.

    Chey, you will be happy that your blood results were fine.  Maybe cut back on the drinking chocolate.....
    Hazel, you would have been exhausted after 23's visit.

    Still not the usual number of birds at the feeders.  They are busy with the berries.

    Hope the quiz night went well LB.

    Good morning Debs and all to follow. We had a fun night last night - didn't win but enjoyed the socialising. It was very cold driving home and the amber ice warning illuminated on my dashboard.
    Slept like a log and am ready for whatever today decides to throw at me. The latest kitty cat story had me laughing this morning - love starting the day with a smile.
    Ante I feel for you, having experienced similar days for what seems like most of this year!
    Friend from Crewe and I are going to a GC this morning (any excuse in my book)- she wants to see the seasonal dekkies. I still have a loyalty voucher to use up.

    Chive (I think it was you who said you would like to see my Bestie's Halloween dekkies!)
    I'll post some later after my guest has gone home.

    Morning. After a cold, misty start the sun has broken through for one of those beautiful sharp autumnal days.

    Glad you enjoyed your evening LB.

    There are some lovely old barns on a farm estate about 3 miles from us and each year they open them up as a Christmas village. They sell their own Xmas trees and wreaths and have seasonal workshops alongside what seems like room after room of decorations. Everything from 50p felt cut-outs to exquisite £500 German and Austrian wooden ornaments. They also have stalls manned by local artists and crafters at the weekends. It’s a rather nice place to go to get you in a more seasonal frame of mind.

    Today I shall endeavour to be more productive than yesterday. Need to make a tagine and hairdresser is coming after lunch so that’s a start...

    Morning all.  A nice dry day so after my cuppa it's out to the leaves.

    Glad you had an enjoyable evening LB.  No doubt money will be spent at the GC.
    T'bird, a festive visit to these barns sounds lovely.

    Chey it's good your blood tests came back okay.  LB well done on completing all the leaves for your c mas wreath.  Hazel you've had a lovely visit from the little one.  Topbird it's it's good you've had a rest day.   Chive I think I'll lay off the Bailey's as they were quite large and just a drop left in the bottle, hicc.
