I see Mike has been doing his too high brow for your late night posts .

We are the most eclectic bunch of people aren't we.

Morning all.

Today will mainly involve me being a strong independent and damn right determined woman.

Big words might be used. Big complicated words... like health and safety compliance.

I'm rather looking forward to it. 

Joyce; I've found the best way to prevent dust build up to leave tools around the house. That way when your guests arrive you were "just in the middle of something" explaining away the muck ;)

Afternoon all. I've been having one of those three steps back kinds of day. More like three steps and a long jump but never mind.

Glad your kidneys are looking okay Hosta. Spines are a bloody silly design; I remember looking at my own MRI thinking "pft I could have designed better".

Evening all.

Well I can safely say that I made a BIG IMPACT in my meeting today.

Not all good, well unless my staff like working from home in their pjs, but still... all constructive (or at least it will be once I've swum through this almighty river of poo to retrieve the office paddle that was carelessly thrown out by the previous manager).

Still; safe to say my bosses will remember my name.

Tonight is all about letting my brain rest a little!

Oh Joyce I'm so sorry to hear about your husband but glad you were able to get some decent sleep.

Very wet and grey today; a car crash on the motorway is filling up the roads ready for me to *gasp* venture out of Yorkshire to *horror* the South.

Coming soon... At last ....Chateau de Gateau

Silly question; do you have Facebook and Twitter accounts for the chateaux set in?

Afternoon all. 

Busy busy busy. I now have over 600 years of award medals to sort out for my volunteers! This is going to involve a lot of hand shaking.

Much cooler here today, jumper weather. Suddenly everything feels.... grey. Like the colour of the world has been washed away.

Thank you for responding Sarah. But this enquiry was originally posted in 2012; I'm not even sure they will get your message.
