Hi MrsG - glad your son's stuff went well - powerpoint and all

Its finally feeling cold enough to be winter here - even if the thermometer doesn't say so - maybe wind chill has crept in.

off for a weekend in Berlin in a couple of weeks - MrsG I seem to remember you went recently - any tips or must-sees??

Littlest chicklet's last parents evening before the GCSEs next summer.  They all said very encouraging things.  Lovely to see her growing in confidence outside the house - she has never had a problem with us, but finally the rest of the world is getting to see the real her too. Clucking around like a proud mother hen

Matty - be strong, you're a fighter.  And we are all right behind you.  Sending positive thoughts your way, and many ((hugs)) too.

 So sorry Matty 

Sofa shopping was a disaster - have now established all the things Mr Chicky doesn't like - but none of the things he does.

Hiya OL - sorry to hear things are stressful - planting up your sink sounds a great way to have some downtime.  Enjoy your day out Lily

Have a good trip Dove (bet you're long gone by now).  Enjoy snuggling with the papers LP.  And fairy - you're a dynamo.  Hope the mist clears soon KEF - at least no rain for now.

shopping trip today - need a new sofa.

Not today, but I often "sit" on plants - when you plant close together there is no room to bend down
