Well it looks as though it will be a white Christmas here  on the North West coast– snow for the last 6 days on and off – unheard of and I don’t like it.  It looks lovely but that is all it does for me – I never feel too safe when walking so tend to stay in and just look – a real wimp I’m afraid.  Good job we have plenty of food in for Christmas though we should be in Bury for lunch tomorrow!!!!

A few snowy ‘pics’ from my garden  -  a bit cold to sit here!!


Not many cars about today.


And a Christmas tree for you all from me -



With best wishes.  Sandra.

Talking Threads - TV Show

I have just picked this up from another Guild blog page and thought you might like this information, if you do not already have it.

Below is the complete listing for the Talking Threads TV Show (on Sky):

Remember, if you don't have Sky you can still watch it for free via the Country Channel TV Website

[ website ] which works similar to the BBC iPlayer or video on demand. You can watch Talking Threads anytime; each episode will be available online from the day it goes out on Sky and will stay there indefinitely.

I know that some of these dates have gone, but as it says they are available indefinitely – haven’t tried yet so can’t confirm this information. (Sandra)
