Congratulations AWB - lovely news   Is she a sister for the 1st granddaughter, or a cousin?  Either way, i feel a nice airy tree will be in order (Although best make it robust enough fo her to climb in the tomboy years!)

Small world, Dove.  The girls are all wearing bow ties to school at the moment - his trademark and their tribute.  Gotta go now or I'll start crying again

Morning all - mizzly here.

Dove - this lad was from Reading, so a different one ..... sadly happens all too often.

Got to circumnavigate Ascot this week to get to work - always a challenge.  But only a 4 day week, as i have Friday off for much more exciting adventures

Hope the Australian doesn't eat you out of house and home Fidget
