  • Lucky you, living in a lovely part of England..,we stay in Cornwall as well, I so wished we could move there,, but cannot afford it.

    Not done much today, it was very foggy this morning and the day is very dark and damp.

    I am watching the Painting and Drawing Channel at the moment..the artist is doing a lovely white kitten.

    When I have the energy I have a go myself,,, but it is so relaxing to just watch. Not keen on the second programme painting a broad bean!! Still each to there own.

    Hope you feel better soon.......B.

    PS if anyone wants to watch it is on SKY 189. Between 4pm. 5pm. every day, you never know you might find a new hobby!,


  • Hi Ivyleaf

    I hope you are beginning to feel a little better - all of the bugs and viruses etc that come out at this time of year seem to just keep going.

    I quite like the dark nights, although staying up past 8pm becomes difficult - i think i hibernate.

    The weather is due to get colder next week - keep warm and i'm sure you'll be rid of this virus soon.

    Best Wishes


  • Thanks Jo.....

  • Hi ivyleaf, so are you a Devonshire Dumpling like me? I was born in St.Budeaux, lived there for 20 years before moving up to SE London.

  • Hi chopsticks, yes i am ! born at West Park, then moved to Honicknowle now live near Tamar bridge. Lived several other places in Plymouth before here. during the last War lived with grandparents at Whitstone near Bude. back in Plymouth 1944....

    Do you miss Plymouth at all ? or do you still visit?........

  • Hi ivyleaf, I do miss the Plymouth I used to know, but according to my nephew who still lives in St. Budeaux, I wouldn't like it there now, haven't been back for a long time.
