Hurrah! Its fascinating stuff Wildflowers. Lots of ours (you're looking at about 15 different clumps the size of dinner plates) is already starting to look less like an eye more like a... well apostrophe.

So Punkdoc what came home in your trip to the GC?

Can you believe its April tomorrow? I'm not ready for April. Gosh to be truthful I'm not ready for March yet. Where did January go anyway?

A proper frost here and not much sleep. Hound was feeling under the weather after his jabs on Tuesday so was given free reign of the bedroom last night. Truth be told I don't think he was that impressed with it but it made his lordship feel better.
I don't think the hound and I had more than a few hours sleep at a time. Still with enough mugs of tea I'm sure we'll whizz through a day at work.

Keep safe everyone.

*hugs* I have no words that feel anywhere near powerful enough to express how much I hope she will be as comfortable as she would want x

Gosh you've all been so busy. I'm watching the A word while His Lordship cooks.

I've burst into tears twice already.

I can't see any difference here.

But I've spent all day cutting out and prit sticking so have to confess I'm not used to just dull colours (my little classroom art project is going to be BOLD).

Wintersong: thank you for posting. It makes me feel so much better knowing that our dog isn't the only one to be quite so... pathetic. I had to take him to the v.e.t.s last night for some jabs: all those smug cat owners with their little tiddles in small baskets all sat nicely and so easy to pick up as I hauled 27 kg of whimpering German Shepherd over my shoulder because he refuses to walk the moment we get near the v.e.t.s

Punkdoc: in short you should have realised that now that having a dog is a bit like having a small toddler. They're loving, trusting, and always by your side.

Oh and you can put them in time out too! (Though apparently a dog cage isn't suitable for a toddler... who knew).

Unlike a toddler you have no fears of them growing up and getting a teenage girl pregnant, or demanding money for university fees!

I watched the Creme thingy last night. What's wrong with slapping it in a bowl and pouring custard from a pot on it? Tsk some people...


Morning all. Currently gloriously sunny outside. Alas I am inside writing to decide how to write an email to all the schools that, for some silly reason, haven't booked to visit us yet. I'm thinking "hey teachers book now and I'll tell you where the chocolate is hidden!" Professional enough?


Have a lovely day everyone.

Cheers all! I'll get the cake at brunch time! As daft as it sounds it makes me feel so much better having you say well done!
