Hello....been doing a catch-up and just hope I am on the right thread this time .

Very sad news about your aunt, Pam. Remember the happy times.

Loved the bit about the orgasmic bread. My late mum insisted to a bus driver years ago  that the name of the house she was looking for was called 'Cocktails' and in fact it was called 'Small Drinks'! It involved the whole of the country bus discussing it and as a child I quietly died with embarassment.

Bought my earlies today and keep intending to get down to working out my seed planting timing as well. It is so cold here that I really cannot believe the seeds would mind being delayed a but more!

Take care everyone....so far no snow here but I believe it is on its way...grrrr

Well done, Mary Beard . As an oldie myself and from Cambridge to boot I think she has huge personality and is obviously extremely intelligent. The sad piece in the article is she says that if this had happened 30 years ago she would have hidden in a cupboard and cried. Is it age that has made her stronger or that finally women feel stronger in themselves? Discuss....

Highland Jeannie and Palaisglide (as in ballroom dancing?), my birth mother was  an RAF Nursing Sister in Palestine and Aden and apparently after a while because it was so hot had to have leave every now and then. Am I right about this?

No snow yet in Cambridge but in the meantime we have rain! Take care all of you in the snow areas - I know it looks pretty but can be dangerous 

Anyone watch the BAFTAs last night?

I hope you all have a good week and you just never know we might even manage to get out into our gardens at some point.

Just been trying to do a bit of a catch-up peeps. It takes some doing when you have been off it for a while

Jean, what a ghastly time for you and well done grandson - what a sweetie.

Isn't this weather depressing....just when we all want to get out there and tend our patches?

Have finally retrieved my camera from son in London which I might say he hardly used so he said as too cold to take off gloves!

Btw loved the wheelbarrow race in Kenya. Shall we introduce that to the UK? I am doing the Race for Life with friends in July which seems seasons away at the moment
