Think he's in Sri Lanka at the moment and should be in Australia any day now - he's not told me much about his plans (he's not a great communicator) but from what I've gathered  they'll be spending a fair bit of time with our cousins in Tas - he probably won't be in touch with me and I'll only contact him if necessary as I'm sure he can do without his mobile ringing on holiday, but if I get to hear that he's your way I'll certainly mention it ...... you're very kind

G'day Pat

Ma was very well thanks - somehow she'd buttoned her cardie buttonholes onto the buttons down the front of her dress - she was very proud that she'd managed it herself so the carers had left it as it was. 

After I'd spent some time with Ma I travelled further down the coast and spent some time with my son   .  On my journey home I'd travelled 20 miles when I realised I'd left my mobile phone on his table so had to turn around and go back   He'd found it of course and been wondering whether to drive after me, wrap it and put it in the post or just wait for me to realise and come back for it ... I'm glad he chose the latter.    I'll try not to do that again

Good morning all

Another mild night - the lowest it got to was 9.1C  but it looks like another damp day ahead.

Was it Ryan's Opuntia that gave rise to Hosta singing the whole of Bare Necessities on here not long ago?

Hazel, when you get an email thread notification there are two links you can click on - the first one will take you to the thread and the second one will enable you to disable the notifications for that thread. 

If I want to disable it  I go straight to the second link and click on it - without clicking on the first link.  That seems to work for me.

So proud of my beautiful clever Wonks!!! 

I know how nervous she gets with exams and tests and stuff like that - it's absolutely brilliant that in the last few years she's married her lovely huh,  learned to control her nerves and get a really good degree and pass her driving test. 

Oh, and won a prize for gardening

Apparently Pa Womble is currently holidaying in Brazil - he'll have a surprise when he gets back  -  I imagine he's trying to dodge the mosquitos - and apparently he's going to be fumigated when he comes back
