Liriodendron: say what you like. Chances are I wont be able to hear you!

Unfortunately hearing aids aren't going to be of any help for me as its all terribly complicated. 

At least if I can master lip reading I will never have to worry about the shy child in the class who barely squeaks a whisper.

I'm going to try and find somewhere to learn sign language too: it'll be a handy tool for expanding what we can offer schools and visitors in the museum as well as a "useful" thing to know should things get worse.


Dove: a few years ago we had snow in South Yorkshire on May 23rd. I know because I spent my birthday in a blanket by the fire shivering!


Too late!

What kind of plants do you want to grow Sophie?

Trees from Seeds.

Anyone else a little concerned that TheSeed seems to be selling seeds to customers (and thus perhaps a company charging more than just postage costs) but has so little knowledge about their product?

Hospital appointment went.... erm. In short the specialists advice is: find a class to learn to lip read  Good job the eye test shows my sight is fantastic. 

Lovely and sunny after this mornings heavy rain so I've rushed some washing out onto the line: how can two people create so much washing? Its not like I've even got massive granny pants that might fill the machine.

Verdun - the thing is the women especially at schools may be bad but they don't cause (it seems) the crashes or statistics (I have a special hatred for school drop offs).

I'm not a nice person Verdun. You loose all niceness when you drive an eight foot wide vehicle down roads that people in their five foot wide cars think are designed more for parking than for letting other vehicles through.

As a female driver who often drives 16 geared fire engines I would like it to be said that I don't think there's such a thing as women being better than men or something BUT

that less women drive like idiots than men.
