Good morning all, a bit frosty here, I am off to a little Christmas coffee morning so will get me in the mood anyway. 

Have a good day everyone.

Evening all, very quick visit after an very quick read back, sorry, Thursday's are my busy days. 

Punkdoc, hard to keep reading your posts and not to feel down for you so can understand your reluctance to chat. Sometimes one can feel life going into free fall and so difficult to feel in controI.  Thinking of you and you family and hope that things start to turn around very quickly. Big virtual hugs and support are all we can offer but I hope it helps.  

Very best wishes to everyone else too, I am sure I have missed loads but have a bobble hat to knit for a snowman, dinner to dish up and then off to a PTA meeting (again). 

Have a nice evening all.

OH is a bit more himself and has taken a few bike rides by way of exercise, not really anything too energetic but at least it means he is considering the idea that exercise might be important. Steady away I suppose. 

Funny you mentioned Shadow, when it snowed this morning I had an awful moment of missing him, we only had snow once whilst we had him and he loved it. He is fine though and I have seen him a couple of times, he has really filled out, all the puppyness has gone out of him and he looks like a real Labrador now, so obviously fit and healthy so can't be too sad. 

I'm happy with knitting too GG but not too clever at the sewing up bit.

Georgia, Anita and Jay David, but who knows, so many variables.

That sounds like my day Fairy, thought I had a simple one ahead of me and here I am at 9pm and just stopped, well not really stopped, but sat down to get on with my charity knitting (deadline next Friday). One thing after the other, although in all honesty nothing unpleasant just tidying up loose ends - but they were all very frayed. 

Runny so pleased your son is doing well but I would think it is going to be a long road to full recovery. He sounds tremendously brave. 

Well done Gertie, would velcro be easier? 

Going to be -5 tonight, have been around garden and covered up what I can, fingers crossed.

Back to the knitting then, we have a TV but I can't find anything I fancy so I am just sat by the fire in the sitting room (no TV in here), nice and peaceful actually although the cat is trying to fight me for the wool. 

Good evening all.

I'm with you too David, although Anita & Gleb are pretty close on their heels.

Don't think it made much difference, it would have been either this week or next week, she just doesn't have the public support, I don't know why. Before this programme I didn't know her, but then I hardly know who anybody is.  It was just becoming embarrassing for her, I do wish we got to see the number of votes, it would make a bit more sense, she might have just been missing out by a few and then it wouldn't have seemed so bad. 

I am just hoping that Georgia and Giovanni haven't peaked too soon and I hope Jay has more to give. But then I really like Anita's dancing and Gleb's er-hmm choreography,  of course.

Morning all,

We have snow here and a we had a beautiful almost sepia sunrise, for about 20 mins our whole little world was peachy.

Phew, that was a close one. Glad for Jamelia that it's all over, my self esteem would be so low by now. Hoping Peter might just have had a scare so tries even harder next week. Against anyone else tonight I think he would have been going home, except perhaps Helen. 

From now on surely they all have a chance, although not sure about Katie and Anton outside of ballroom. 

Really good show, all danced well and it was very entertaining, loved Take That too,  but that is probably a sign of my age.  

Something strange happening in wardrobe last few weeks too, Kelly has looked odd for weeks and Jamelia looked like she was wearing hoops under that dress.
