Hi Beefeater - I've flagged this up to the GW office - I'm sure they'll be in touch when they're back at their desks

LillyP - my son was due on the 7th Dec, he arrived on the 22nd ... and I suspect that, if he'd been left to his own devices he'd have arrived on 25th Dec ... he's always had a slightly inflated opinion of his own importance 

I'm sure all will be fine ... I know they have somewhat different systems to us, but Russians do seem to know how to get things done ... ((hugs))

...  I'm not so sure that the virtual wife is such a bad thing.  At least you could switch it off when it wanted to go shopping .  I'm now off to find my tin hat and flak jacket.

See original post

 I wonder how much more use there would be of the Off switch if there was a Virtual Husband ... or even if there'd be a market for them at all ?

I've found it can be susceptible to cold winds - could it be in the path of a chilly draught whipping around a corner?  Even in London the wind can be quite nippy.

Glad you're feeling a bit better Wonky ... I know your Lovely Hub won't let you overdo it 

I only meant to get a few bits in the supermarket, but there were far fewer people there than I expected, so I've done the Christmas stock up - loo rolls, booze, tonic, more cheese and crackers, nuts, juice etc.  Just the perishables to get on Friday now, eg, cream, milk, crisps ....... I know that according to the sell by dates, crisps are supposed to last a good while, but they never last very long here 

Seeds to start early

Sounds like they're learning some of what pubs are about - rest and relaxation   They'll learn the other aspects in due time

Chicky - that's great news!!!  

Just a word of warning, on Christmas Day watch his portion size and get him to pace himself - his stomach will have got used to smaller hospital sized portions and eating larger portions plus the richer food on Christmas Day can trigger problems ... been there and done that ... ending up in A&E on Christmas Evening with Pa ......... twice
