Just had a phone call to say littlest Chicklet and her group have got hopelessly lost on their expedition - so not to bother trying to come and pick her up til 2 hours later than the alloted time . Good job i am staying close by, so have not already set off . Think ((hugs)) might be needed. .... And possibly ice cream if Bekkie has any going spare
