Another reason for celebration - a friend's heard today that her latest blood test is really positive - she'll never beat the cancer - it is terminal - but she'll be able to live with it for quite a while yet, and can even consider a phased return to work

I used to go off on my bike and come home when I was hungry - aged 10 or so - and walked half a mile to school on my own from 7.  Tell that to the kids today...

Great pics of the caterpillar, btw
