Morning all, up late again, now have to mark with a vengeance, the time is slipping away from me Sainsburys later today, better get some stocks in just in case..

Chris, do you go to Kiftsgate as well as Hidcote? It is well worth a visit and at the bottom of the road to Hidcote. We found it by mistake and it was a most unexpeced garden. I really enjoyed it. Coughton Court is very nice and reasonably close to Stratford.

Yes, Becks, you can't see someone standing over you with the dropper and it's better when it drops on a closed eye, not quite as much of a shock. You have to lie flat and when the drop is in the corner, open your eye and look from side to side. So much less stressful, for me and him..

Evening all, just had a quick catch up. Geoff, Spar have more international outlets than any other retailer, They also have Dunnes Stores in Spain, modelled on M&S but cheaper. Valencia did have an M&S my friend was a manager there, but it closed when they closed all their stores there.You can buys some Tesco's stsuff in some supermarkets in tourist areas.  I teach international retailing, I could bore for England on the subject

I am feeling a lot better, still suffering the eye drops, we have a new technique, the one you use for kids. I lie down and close my eyes and OH puts the drops in the corner of my eyes, I open them and hope the drops run in. I hate drops. I don't look like a battered boxer any more. Signing off the sick but working at home for the rest of the week.

Have to go to Worcester and Bristol next week, Bjay I will wave at the hills. Were going to pop by Malvern, but my family not available for visit.

You've all been on good form today, have had a chuckle over the day's post.

Morning again, went back to bed and only just got up again.

How about a tattle of tits? They always sound as through they are having a good gossip. I think some Victorian thought up all those group nouns for animals and birds. You used to get a list of them in First Aid English. What a great book that was. You can find them now in Schott's Miscellany, another one of my Dave's, I love trivia.

Bjay, if you cook the gammon in apple juice, you can thicken it with a little car flour to make a sauce.

Thanks you for best wishes and advice, open to all suggestions. The upside is it's getting me out of a boring school event tomorrow.

I line Dunelm, but answered a survey from them and now they keep sending me emails.
