Many thanks for the tips Steephill - will have a good look at your pics later (on a train at the moment, and a phone screen won't do them justice ). Getting very excited now .... 8 more sleeps

Not Steve - you should add your own footprints for that special personal touch that only you know is there.  We left a shed at our last place that had the prints of our (at the time) toddler in its base - wonder if the new owners ever noticed

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

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

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