Fidget - (Hugs))  I wish I could do something to help - I've been there ((hugs))

Thinking of everyone who is caring for someone.

Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

I asked for a meeting with the Principal of the art school and my tutor - she kept denying that she had my draft - I saw she had her big leather bag by her chair and asked if there was a purple folder in it and if so would she take it out and see what it was .......... Nuff said !!!  

My Diss was marked as if I'd had no tutorial input and then I  had to do a Viva !!!  I got a high 2:1 so I was happy in the end but it was a traumatic time!

 BitterKnitter - it's on it's way .... good luck with the Diss - SIL is suffering at the moment too - I suffered a long while ago - my Diss tutor 'forgot' she had my second draft and went to Italy for a month !!! (before we were all using computers!)

HELLO FORKERS!

Hi BitterK - good to see you  hope the uni work is going well.  Think everyone here is ok - usual ups and downs of course, but that's life isn't it?

Panda, glad you and friend are having a lovely time - warming vodka sounds .... medicinal

Hi Fg  - not much warmer down here

 

Whoever I' ve missed - Hi

Indoor hyacinths - are they ready for some light??

I like to get them a couple of inches tall, so that the flower bud has emerged from the bulb - otherwise my experience is that sometimes the flower spike is distorted.

Never for one moment suspected that it was Cangran

What do you have left to do in the garden this year?

B******* Magpies

Magpies love suet and over the past few years there seems to have been an increase  in suet based food for bird feeders (suet balls etc) and I think that's attracting them into gardens in the winter when they would normally be out in the fields, hedgerows and roadsides after carrion.

Families eh!    You've done all you can do DD - all you can do now is just to let the dust settle and hopefully distance and time will smooth things over. 

There are members of my family who cannot/will not be in the same room as each other.  Giving them a good shaking (and more) hasn't worked.  They and we just have to accept it and get on with our lives.
