Strictly 2014

Loved it too, think Caroline deserved it, but also some great dancing by so many and some very sweet 'back stories'. What on earth are we going to do next Saturday??

Evening all - lovely cake forks Lesley, I do like a good fork. 

Clari, fingers & toes crossed for you, really hope all goes well for you. We get to meet 'Jack' on Monday 15:30 (will follow advice of a splash of 'eau de roast chicken' - thanks for that).

BL very inconvenient time for a party - we are glued to SCD, loving it. Interval now so off to get some mince pies with ice cream - ooh, seem to have run out of ice -cream.... Verd???

Enjoy your evening all, hope the weather improves, wind not good.

Loving the show so far tonight!

Evening all, 

Sounds like a good day for most of you - especially Verdun, just testing it were you - yeah right 

Some good news on the doggy front, we are good enough for the adoption people, just have to meet the dog now and hope he likes us. He sounds so perfect for our situation, I will be very upset if he turns his nose up at us. 

Also, sorry don't want to seem like a show off, but so pleased (and relieved) Charlie got his school test results  today and has all A's in grammar, reading, mathematics and a B in science, - amazing as he had hardly any French language when we arrived just 8 months ago. Very proud. 

'Keep fit' tonight, but cake after, little bit of a end of term party for us. 

Dove enjoy your pizza, BL enjoy your concert, hope to be going to one at Coussac Bonneval tomorrow in the chateau, but depends on dog situation. 

Everyone else have a nice evening whatever you're up too.

Morning All,

Well done detective daughter, what a sense of satisfaction that must be! That should make her feel so much better, some element of control back too. 

Hope the weather bucks up a bit, still drizzly here, but forecast better for next couple of days. 

Clari wish my OH was so conscientious, never actually seen him with a vacuum in hand.  We are not having a house inspection, they accepted some photographs and an interragation, particularly about the security of the garden fence. Think (hope) it is only paperwork slowing things up, but frustrating anyway. Good luck with your inspection - sure you will be fine. 

Dove & OH have a lovely day. 

Bob in later, hopefully with some doggy news.

Fed up - been waiting all evening for phone call regarding doggy adoption - heard nothing, going to bed in a sulk now!

So pleased to hear meeting went well Verdun, not an easy topic at any time.

Gingerbread anyone  - unfortunately son wanted to 'help', was one of those grit your teeth moments and remind yourself Christmas is really for kids.  They may not be pretty (or gingerbread men as intended), but they are tasty.

Hope you enjoy your evening Pdoc, I love an occasional evening home alone, get control of remote , not that I know how to work it. 

Think I would have saved the choc until after the lasagne though. 

Congratulations Matty2, what a lovely surprise! 

Gingerbread cooling!

Evening all, sorry gingerbread got postponed, been making elves shoes from serviettes instead - with some help from Santa!

Will do gingerbread tomorrow, hope no-one has skipped dessert whilst waiting.  

Clari - feel your pain and impatience - hoping our process will be quicker, however, all our negotiations are in French so just a tad tricky! We might be getting a gorgeous black labrador, but then again....

Pdoc (& others) - feel your pain too - had baby blues for a long time, seemed mad, gorgeous healthy baby, doting and supportive OH, but burst into tears at every conceivable moment, ridiculous sense of despair, completely overwhelming at times. Unexplicable to so many, very isolating. Hugs! 

Matty, very best wishes - you are so brave and so positve, good luck, hope you feel less sore v. soon. 

Runnybeak - strike a light (oops probably not appropriate turn of phrase) bit of an adventure, definitely deserving of roast lamb dinner. Dare I ask was it lamb flambé? Ooops sorry again, glad you survived. 

Think I should go to bed now, goodnight all.

Morning All,

Very wet here, but can't complain weather has been so good for so long.

GG so sorry to hear about your neighbour, sounds very intimidating. The Christmas card sounds a nice idea, least then you will feel you have made an effort. 

Making Gingerbread men today (now have managed to source some black treacle), will be offering around for a tasting later. Need to know they are OK before I take them into school for the children. 

Good day to you all.
