Spoke to my (ever cheery) 83 year old mother on the phone last night and she described it as "full graveyard weather". Not hot but not cold enough to kill off the bugs before they killed you. A throwback to her rural childhood, no doubt, when I'm sure, when you were out all day in all weathers, in houses with no heating, ways to dry your clothes or doctors that didn't cost money, that this kind of weather was greeted with dread. She said, cheerily... x

Yeah, it's completely fucked up here too. The most I've had on is a denim jacket or a hoodie and I got hot in that too! All I want is a little tiny dusting of snow for Christmas, just to perk things up. If we don't get some really good cold we're going to have hella mosquitoes in spring. :roll:

Talked to my 86-year-old mother yesterday and she was outside rototilling. ROTOTILLING. In December. In short sleeves. That seems about right, though, regardless of weather, if you know my mom. :-)

I'm in a turkey dilemma :? Fresh turkey crown for Christmas dinner being delivered on Tuesday 22nd. Food safety guidelines say fresh poultry should only be kept in a fridge for a maximum of 2 days. So, do I freeze it? But then, I'd have to take it out again to defrost in the fridge around Wednesday night! It will be nearly as confused as I am.

Cook it a day early - then on Christmas Day put it on a hot plate and pour on steaming hot gravy...

Cook it on Christmas Day and enjoy with a couple of bottles of Brandy - which should kill off any food poisoining...but may create other issues that are much worse...

Hmmm...not really helping here...

Insomnia may very well be a thing of the past for me,a mate of mine brought some herbal sleeping tea from Spain and flippin eck does it work....I got 8 hours continuous sleep last night for the first time in years and years....it also curbs the need for alcohol cos once you've drank the tea you've got to be in bed about an hour later or you'll fall asleep where you are....it's amazing stuff,just valerian and California poppies....no....not opium but it's what the American Indians used for sleeping....just had one....right....I'm off....night

Oh yes, can you get it online? My 19 year old daughter is suffering, therefore we all are. Up and down stairs, drinks of water, then flushing the loo. I don't want her going to the Dr and filling herself with chemicals. I'm being patient, as she's working quite a few hours plus just finishing uni, with work to do for that, plus trying to find a years placement that will pay her! So pretty stressed out house, even the cat is only sleeping 12 hours a day.

I can also vouch for the superpowers of valerian, I used to take valerian capsules for insomnia and they worked like a charm except for their ungodly odor. I had to stop because they turned my medicine cabinet into an olfactory hellmouth from which no souls returned. I have the occasional night of insomnia now but I've mostly got it licked through habit changes/changes to bedroom lighting, etc. When I need some extra help, both Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Tea and Traditional Medicinals Nighty Night Tea now come in valerian-added versions as well. All the awesomeness of the teas you know and love plus a little bit more. :-) Reminds me of that Denis Leary joke about NyQuil, if you're going to take NyQuil you better be standing by a bed, because buddy, it's lights out for you. :shock:

If you want to know, it has lemon balm, orange tree leaves, honey, orange blossom and lavender. Not apt for those with celiac disease. Take only one bag per day (it sounds as if taking more would send you into hibernation!).
