Yes Hazel's right - go into you Settings and Check the Email notificatiions (think that's what it's called) and Save - then when you also click on the box below your post you should get the notifications come through.  They used to be a bit hit and miss but now it seems pretty reliable if you tick all the boxes.

If not you can send a PM to NoraGW

Lovely to see you Lily P   Families eh ((hugs)). Once a mum always a mum. I've bubble wrapped the little greenhouse but not the big pots yet. It's not too cold here so far, but if the temps drop I shall have to do something. We have moved them into their usual sheltered corner against the house wall so fingers crossed

They would perfume the water and the oils would melt into the warm water and soften and perfume her skin.

I've never found music on Planet Earth programmes intrusive, but tonight we're watching Ben Fogle's Great African Migration, and Golly Gosh!!!  the music is soooooooo intrusive and annoying.  There are three layers of sound - the sound of what's going on on screen, the voice over, and then some portentious and totally inappropriate music which is far too loud!
