Winter weather during a winter run, whilst not headline news, it's nice to feel the seasons after a mild old autumn. A last minute flurry of sign ups got us to a solid seven. "If you could heighten any sense - which one and why?" We all just used the question rather practically, as if the wish could be granted, offsetting our sensory decline with age; hearing and seeing better the clear favourites. Our winner this week goes to Brad, who'd continue to be blind as a one-eyed bat, but would rather have a sixth sense to see ghosts, obviously.

Off to The Up Garden we went, discussing along the way super-auditory benefits, reproductive biology and Reynolds tubing. After a few mins waiting we began a large list of jobs, emptying plant pots, filling plant pots and tubs, putting drainage in plant vessels, digging in stumps and laying scaffold. All in half hours work, we rattled through it as we do, not too much to report in hindsight, which is perhaps no bad thing.

Next week is our Crimbo Social - sign up here. We'll play some games, have a feed and plenty of laughs - get on down!

Till then,
