Juls what size are we looking at covering? (After all if it's a tennis court you won't want us offering very expensive options!)

Oh. I have some doing that I just thought they were short arse varieties! What were they like last year?

Afternoon all. 

Who mentioned donuts? Oh I miss them so much!! I have the deep fat fryer thingy at home I just haven't had the confidence yet to try making some. Truth be told I'm only just mastering bread and yorkshire puddings are a no no so my confidence is truly bashed as all things baking when I could have gluten rose so beautifully.

First day of fundraising to get our "mobile museum" road legal. We (I) need to raise £2,000 which even then wont cover everything. Today we raised: £4.50. Some way to go then!! If you know anyone in Sheffield with a spare £5 in their pocket up to no good do send them this way

Just waiting for a few documents to print and then I'm homeward bound. Alas working all weekend but I'm hoping on Monday to buy a new pot to replace the one that was once containing my bay tree by the front door (now smashed to bits in the high wind while bay tree hides in an old compost bag!)

Quick Reggie up date: he now weighs 26kg (was 22kg when we got him) which according to a friend is twice the weight of his four year old child!

Lynn - I read somewhere not to give them a big pot: just move up a size at a time. I'm sure there was a reason behind it but I don't remember that bit.

Good luck!

Another lovely looking day today and 104 children (I'm going to their school) so here's hoping it stays drive in the playground! 

Dove, I hope youunderstand my ramblings on the other thread. Having seen all my grandparents struggle to live somehow watching them pass away seems the nicest thing that could happen to them. I'm so glad father had a nice nurse to keep him company too,

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Oh Dove I'm so sorry to hear about your mother now being alone, I hope she is able to understand enough to know what is happening (but perhaps not too much to be upset? There has to be an upside to an awful disease that riddles our mind). I'm glad (in one of those confusing ways) that your father is now comfortable, and I hope you and your brother find peace in that xx
