It was bitterly cold last night and the frost did not thaw at all throughout the day.
I've been a bit under the weather, so I stayed at home instead of going to Newcastle to the Laing Art Gallery as planned.
I found my blip in the garden during the afternoon. Judith, from across the road, had come and was entertaining Mum in her usual lively way. No one would guess that she had a stroke and brain surgery earlier this year.
The flowers have an antique look to my eyes.
We caught up on last week's quizzes tonight, so we still have this week to go. I think we are now supporting Durham, who did very well and worked as a team. I like to see that.
