Morning, looks like just the 2 of us so far. Still in bed thinking about getting up. Lots to do, but can 't seem to shape myself.

Me too Pam, we called it a Burberry, I suppose it had something to do with the company but we just used it as a generic name. Double breasted with a belt, I think. Wore it with my Tuf shoes for girls.

Goodnight all, It is time for my bed. Sleep well all.

I willbe with 2 others, so hopefully we won't all fall asleep. I hate the travelling bit, I am Always exhausted when I get there. Iwill have a lie in on Friday morning.

It's very built up there but lots of planting along roadsides, little garden squares dotted around the place and some nice parks. I went to the HK flower show once which was close to the hotel.

We got central heating in the early 70s I think, it was coal fired. We lived in a council house and we had to move out in 1974 when they refurbished and put in new central heating which was gas.

I certainly will report from HK. Most of the students choose English names when they are in school. Last year I had Ghost, Dreamy and Kenix!

I just watched too, they mentioned our road Todmorden to Bacup. I remember those big snow piles up against the hedges when visiting a friend in a rural area. I don't remember not going to school, but I only lived around the corner. on that subject anyone listen to Jeremy Vine yesterday on the subject of closing schools, lots of opposing views.

I am going to HK to teach international marketing to students who are working full time, so we do all the teaching over the weekend and an evening during the week. It can be hard going as their levels of English are variable and I have to entertain them.

Becks, remember you can't taste the shape!

Jean you have reminded me I have some lemon curd in the cupboard.
Pam LL, how do you do the apple cake? The farm shop used to sell one that was apple and apricot, but they stopped making it for some reason, it was yummy.

Have been writing my assignment for HK, which took me ages. Mind you watching the week's Doctors at the same time though. Going out shortly to take out the peanuts.
