Oh Matty, that is great news.  An op will be tough, but so good to know they can isolate it.  Sending positive vibes your way - you'll be great whatever route you decide.  Got a big smile on here.

and Lyn - take care of yourself as well as others.  you couldn't be doing any more.  And your Mum (and Dad) will know that, which is all that really matters.

Very successful thanks Lesley
Just having a coffee to celebrate - then off to catch the train home. Parking this time of year stresses me out, so I'm letting the train take the strain !

My garden looks like it's been burgled!

Morning all - mega frost here - trees and everything.  It all looks soooo pretty

Got a trip to town planned for hopefully my last Christmas bits.  A chicklet is coming with me for part one, and then is being banished home early so I can get on in peace for part two.  

But first, a cuppa, and some more gazing into winterwonderland - we don't get hoar frosts often

Morning Dove - have a great day Sometimes meet ups like that can be really fun

One more day at work, and then a free weekend - think it will be time to go find a Christmas tree.  I'm feeling the need for santa hat smilies - will we get them this year do you think??
