Jo, it was 'mam', the iPad must not have liked it and changed it to man, it's funny like that. I don't always notice that there is gobbledygook in the sentence. I think I will give up posting from the iPad, you can't do the smiley faces or upload the photos. I probably need an ap for that. Being Welsh we always said mam not mum! BTW could you have a small piece as a special treat?

Becks, do you have a bit of Welsh by any chance, my lovely is an expression often used in Wales.

Jean, we could have one party now and then a Halloween party too. As we always have Parkin in Lancashire, us northeners could introduce the southerners to its delights (if they are not familiar with it).

Currently having a break for tea and chocolate digestives. Dripping from leaky guttering on to the window sill outside driving me bananas.

Hello all and very nice to meet you Lowenna!

Is schyzostylis lily also called Kaffir lilies? Man hated lots in her garden and I have tried them here but they never seem to flower. I might try them in pots as they are very pretty. I think the pale pink one is more hardy that the dark pin.

Had my hair cut today and popped in Lidl, 6 hedging plants for 4.99 including hebe and box, quite small though. They had some pretty miniature roses too, also 4.99. I bought a little indoor miniature rose for my office for 2.00 in Morrisons.

Jo, let's celebrate! How about a cyber-party? With cake and balloons. We could set a time and all eat cake at the same time.

I think I did Kate, BBC 3 so should be on catch up. Their business is called twist, a fast pasta outlet.

Just caught the end of the singing, I dare not pass comment at this stage. don't want to end up on the naughty step again.

Working at home tomorrow so won't have to be up at 6, hurray!

Evening, just slozacking on the sofa after a hard day at work. I had never heard the word slozacking until I came up north, it describes it perfectly. not sure if that is how you spell it though.

Kate, thank you, I think we have some talented students too, did you see the prog? They got ??50,000 funding. We are very proud of them.

I have enjoyed the day's conversations. Glad I went on that speed reading course, very useful for catching up. Just waiting for my chef to bring the salmon!

Jo, you definitely need a onesie, if you're flopping!
Flo, you could put air vents in the toes perhaps.

Another couple of our students in Be Your Own Boss tonight. Have recorded it and watched Alex Kingston, quite interesting.

I'm good at performing, I do it for a living, but my la la las might be out of tune.

Evening everyone, what intersting conversations! Anyone who is cold needs a 'onsey'. I heard about them on SImon Mayo tonight when driving home, apparently all the rage with students, presumaby because they can't afford the heating! I will try to find a photo. Haven't seen anyone wearing one to a lecture yet, but it is only the first week back.

I can't sing a note, well I can and I love to sing, but you wouldn't want to lsiten to me. How about if I do the halft time refreshments and I could to marketing for any concerts and the CD?

Morning all, does that mean we are all present and correct now Geoff? Thought I would just check in, won't have time later on I will be busy inducting my final year students. It's sounds painful I know! They have been out on placement for a year, so it will be,good to see them back.

Too wet for gardening here anyway. I overlook a small garden frommy office window, will have to make doing with looking out every now and then.

Laters! As my students would say.
