Proper school, Becks, that's just as bad!

Speaking of cute dogs, my little horror has just managed to sneak a ball of wool out of the knitting bag. It's not worth fighting him for it as he's got teeth and is prepared to use them.

PS, because Edit won't work at the mo. Love the pics of Cody, Geoff, though he doesn't looked too chuffed to be wearing a hat.

And, Lottie, what lovely chickens. I've never seen a grey one before.

Hello there, back again. Caz, loved the thing about cleaning, that's me to a T!
Becks, schools always think it's such a fun idea for children to dress up, I think it's because teachers like an excuse to do so ;- )
Glyn, I smiled about your garden reflections, I too am easily distracted. There are times I can remember when I was teaching that my eye would be drawn to the window - usually a bird arriving on a bush. I'd lose the class's attention and have to explain what I was staring at and then describe what a bluetit is and what they like to eat.... My classes quickly learnt what sort of topics would get me nattering and off the subject of the work in hand!
My two remaining chooks are still laying, I get either one or two eggs a day though lately some are very thin-shelled and break in the nest. Esme the parrot is moulting, but the hens aren't.
Geoff, you have a chicken called Flo???

Morning Gary. Where's everyone today? Lost in the mist perhaps.

Sad, in a way, that some people think they can have a garden without gardening. I suppose the only upside is that they may become interested and want to learn whereas if they concrete it over then there's another green space gone.

Don't tend to watch the Apprentice in the early stages mainly because it's a lot of time to commit to the telly and I have many programmes backing up on my hard drive!

Mornign Inka, Pam, Gary, Pam, Jean, Jo, Chris, Geoff, Bjay, Lottie, Becks when she gets here and others yet to come.

Well done those who lobbied for seasonal smileys, here's hoping.

Electing police commissioner is passing me by. Very little literature. I did hear them on local radio but I don't understand why we need to vote for this post and I'm not happy that party politics seems to be behind it.

Dull here after gorgeous day yesyerday. May nip into GC for cheering but expensive coffee after dog walk - in this weather the dog owners ans smokers have the outside bit to themselves.

It would still be nice to encourage people to post something festive - maybe from the internet if photos not convenient or desirable for some. We've had flowers of the day and fungi of the day so could be a similar idea.

Dean, I have been known to show my midriff in the town centre but wouldn't go as far as you :- D

Bjay, that's inspired! I think calendar girls and boys would be very entertaining.

Missed morning register but can be ticked off first for this afternoon.

So many people have things going on that I can't say all the things I thought as I was reading - as Chris said, hope all problems both domestic and otherwise are getting sorted. Figrat, virtual hug if I may.

P Pam, those poor goldfish! My cleaning lady (when I worked full time and could afford one) had a couple of breakage incidents during her time with me. One of them was the lid of a china pot into two which she pressed together and returned to its pot.

Seedy bread is one of my favourites - but I daren't get a breadmaker otherwise I'd undo all the good I have done at WW this last 18 months.

Lovely and sunny here, surprisingly warm. Carpets of leaves everywhere.

Morning all, finding it hard to get motivated though have made a couple of important phone calls to arrange workmen and massage.

Lottie, so sorry to hear about OH. I am an occasional and not very confident cyclist - all those tons of metal flying by does not help.

I like the idea of a personal shopper though, selfishly, would like one to find me lovely clothes that suit me to save me the hassle of hunting.

Loved the Clangers, so cute and fluffy. Also remember Singing Ringing Tree; there seemed to be quite a few programmes at that time made in European languages. I learnt How to say 'Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all' in German from one of them! Have not found a use for the phrase yet ;- )
