Flipping snowing like crazy outside over here on the NE Coast
If anybody wants some feel free to collect it!!

Anyway good morning peeps
Not a lot to report at the moment .... pitch black and snowing ..... weirdly very calm and not really cold but hey its been an odd set of weather systems coming through recently so hardly surprising.
Got a carrier bag full of waste parrot food and was going to go to one of the waste ground areas and spread some for the wild birds .... but under debate as to if that's wise with bird flu around or if its going to be helpful for the birds looking for ffood with snow on the ground .... rock and a hard place!

Whatever your up to today stay warm and safe

Good morning no snow here just the usual rain and more rain.
@DizzyBlue I would put the waste parrot food out for the wild birds they will definitely appreciate it and it will help them to survive.

Re carrier bags, has anyone heard of the Happy Dolphin carrier bags, a new one only recently out, the company is in Wrexham these bags will not harm the environment etc one of it's components is eggshells. Anyway I contacted them and they sent me a few also asked if I can hand out some in local shops as they want to get the word spread. I am impressed by their quality and size, but as of yet do not have any price for them. If anyone would like to get a few to hand out in their area so email them you can find details on their website.

Keep warm folks.

Good morning all, we were out for dinner with our two g/daus last night, they are up here for 4 days from Uni to decorate their mom's Xmas tree, its a tradition since they were kiddies and although they are 19 and 21 yrs old, the tradition must continue as far as they are concerned, I knew it was to be 0c over night but was surprised to see we have a covering of snow this morning.
Just added more items to our Ocado/M&S delivery order, its due 7.30 to 8,30 am tomorrow, and now we walking up to the newsagents, want to lay the first footsteps in the snow ha ha.
keep warm and safe folks

Good morning, Dry, sunny but a chilly 2c out side, no snow. the bags sound like a good idea it must be a egg-citing development for the company I would not mind shelling out money to start using them, I hope more shops will use them as I think its a cracking good idea

Same here @Julie3965 also got woodpeckers & jays coming too. Lovely to see them isn't it.

We are having fresh cod tonight so I began to egg & bread crumb then, started putting some bread crumbs on only to realise I'd reached down a tub of vegetable gravy granules - some had already arrived on the fish, so that all had to come off and start agian. Don't fancy fish covered in vegetable gravy granules. :risas3::risas3:

unfortunately i had to stop feeding the wild birds with the feed left by the flock, it was attracting the rats from the river next to my place and also squirrels. both have caused problems as they then started to use my place as a warm get away. over the last two years apart from a short mouse problem that was soon resolved I have not had a problem with them entering. I cannot become complacent being in a wooden building with plenty of attractions of an easy meal for them, Each of my neighbours have had problems with rats mice and squirrels even last week my neighbour caught two rats, How i hate to see feed go to waste but I have no choice. parrots are very wasteful
