Morning all

last day at work for me today.  Mr C is also going back to work for the first time since his troubles. a staged return planned over the next few weeks.  He seems to be getting back on his feet again nicely now.  Best present I will get this holiday, for sure

Cake decorating planned for this evening .....littlest chicklet has an ambitious plan

Glad your holiday is finally sorted Hosta - by the time you're back we will be marching towards spring ....sounds like a very good plan

If you do decide to go with Ashridge, I can certainly recommend them.  Have had numerous trees and hedging plants from them over the years and they have been excellent.  Great website, with loads of helpful videos too

Phew. Thats the first, non perishable, shop done, and all squirreled away.  Now all i have to do is turn it into delicious puddings and biscuits.  Not too bad in our local W fact, quite a pleasant experience.  And I have Chicklets on hand to help with the baking 

So I shall join you in putting my feet up this evening, with a small glass of something nice and cold.
