Good morning everyone, I must admit that I'd never heard of 'Gransnet' until somewhere I saw a reference to 'Singing Turnip' and when I Googled it I found a recipe on your page, so here I am.

My hobbies are reading (thank goodness for Kindle, my bookshelves are overflowing), knitting and researching my (and my husband's) ancestors.

Looking forward to meeting new friends and chatting with you all.

Good morning and welcome Bisto you will find friendship, good advice and lots of help if you need it here on GN.

Good Morning Bisto. Welcome to the site. Hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. I have learnt so much since I joined and have received help and advice along the way.

One of the greatest things about Gransnet is that it helps you contact such a diverse range of people. Varied political opinions, varied life experiences and every profession seems to be here.

What are your plans for Christmas?

Welcome aboard, Bisto. Like you, I stumbled on GN by accident and have been hooked ever since. It's a bit like wandering into a café or bar and finding a huge group of your friends already there and several different conversations all going on at once ...

Morning LittleFlo, thanks for your reply, my daughter and I have long gone our separate ways at Christmas as we both prefer to cook our own Christmas dinners in our own way, instead we meet up on Boxing Day. I've had some very adverse comments on this arrangement but it suits us.

Welcome Bisto to Gransnet. Hope you find it interesting, helpful and generally very well equipped. tchsmile. If you and your DD like Christmas Day that way well so be it. You must do what you want to do and if it suits both well why not. Don't allow others to influence. Enjoy your day and have fun with your DD on Boxing Day too.

Welcome to Gransnet and congratulations on your excellent timing! The virtual wine is flowing and there's a mellow atmosphere (possibly a connection there?)
