Great news Hosta pleased they can get you back fighting fit again

Just made a couple of batches of biscuits (loose term - actually it was Mars Bar cake from a Blue Peter recipe in the seventies .....been made in our family every year since, and rich tea biscuit cake ....think you get the picture).

Last supermarket shop tomorrow - need to work myself up for that ordeal

All presents wrapped and under the tree ....and thats everything on my list for today.  I'm like you Topbird - can't function without multiple lists.  Is it to early for a glass f wine??

Afties all - just popped in for a nosey whilst having a cuppa - busy, busy, busy here

Mr C's first day back went well - apart from endless recounting of his "what happened to you then" tale.  Means he can go back after the holidays with all of the hows ya father out of the way.

OMG Steve - so glad everyone was safe.  I know that road well - I actually pass your vets every Monday evening on my way to Pilates fact it made me smile wryly to see the headline that the road was closed ....that bl***dy road has been closed for some roadworks or another for the majority of 2015 !!  Next time I swing by I will wave, now that I know you are there

Ok - not quite a tree, but it has baubles on it, so I think it counts.  This is littlest chicklets christmas creation (although it was me that baked the cake)

Sympathies to Wonky - woke up with snivels here too, that are so far being kept at bay by day nurse - think its my body's natural reaction to finishing work for the year

However, cake iced ....very pleased.  Will share pics tomorrow when I have sourced a bit of ribbon to tie round it.

Think we are off for a family trip to the local curry house this evening celebrate the fact that we are all in .... although I guess that means we won't be in after all

Good luck with the surgeon tomorrow Hosta 

And if Pdoc is looking in.....we are thinking of you

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
