        Not much happening on this thread at the moment, can't imagine why. :biggrin:

        My last day at work today, back on Friday so just a 3 day break for me. Due to all the recent rains, the entrances to all the paddocks have become very muddy and slippery, so a wet, wild and windy day was spent loading and chucking sand around in all the gateways. Not exactly festive fun, but at least it kept us warm.

        Tip. When throwing sand around with a shovel in a howling gale, always make sure you've got your back to the wind. :whistle:

          Well I did go outside when there was a break in the rain to have a look if any more of my bulbs were peaking through the soil....so far crocuses, daffodils, russian snowdrops and the muscaris have appeared. :dancy::dancy:

            The only thing I did in the garden was to see if the broken roof tile on our garden was ours or not but the rain was so heavy I couldn't see and I had trouble standing upright!!!

                Having a bit of a sort out in the greenhouse at the weekend, moving all the plants, pots etc. into one section so I could put the hens in the main part, I noticed a few things nibbled, indicating a mouse in residence.

                So, I set the mousetrap (good old fashioned spring type) and baited it with a small piece of bread.

                Checked the trap this morning, no mouse; instead I'd caught a big juicy slug which had obviously decided bread would make a nice change from my winter salad plants. :biggrin:

                Ever seen a slug that's been caught in a mouse trap? Not a pretty sight. :eeew:

                      All I've done is top the bird feeders up for their Christmas dinner! My other half is doing the cooking for us today and I'll be washing up.

                        Started tidying up plants in conservatory.

                        Found some onions that had seeded, so moved them into individual containers.

                        Some Fuchsias have rooted, so got them potted on, cleaned out propagators ready for the new seeds that I am itching to start.:doggieshmooze:

                          Been in the garden today checking over the fence, no damage a few dead branches from next doors tree.
