Believe it or not I was a goody goody at school but a teacher once slapped me across the face as we were learning dance steps and all the girls lined up behind the lady teacher and the boys behind the man. When it came to dancing with a boy I didn't realise we had to hold each other and Miss must have thought I was being awkward. My partner didn't get into trouble just me. She would have lost her job today I suppose.

Hi Bjay. I thought it was a cricket but didn't know what kind.  I don't know if they survive the winter or just lay eggs to carry on for next year. I had two in the bedroom about a month ago so maybe they do hibernate

Talking about mice, there's a video on YouTube, 'mouse versus mouse trap' that's really funny. I'm useless and can't upload on here.   Nearly didn't set the rat trap when I saw it.

Glad Jess is okay now, Becks. they are usually starving when they've been off their food.

That's a thought, Gary. I bet they have medical exemptions then. I read somewhere they were going to be split in teams and be the first to find a helicopter. I would enjoy the programme if it wasn't for eating beasties. Have to turn over then. I think they'll have to come up with some new ideas. It does make you see some of these so called celebs in a different light. I was never a fan of Carol Thatcher 'til I saw her in the jungle.

Do you have any similar programmes, Inka? where they dump people in the  jungle that's about fifty yards from civilisation. You're lucky you've got Downton to look forward to. It finished here last week but I think there's a Christmas special.

Ahh thanks forks.

Do you still give out lines, Kate? hope you can relax at weekends and don't have too much lesson planning.

You might get a goose if you move to Spain. Geoff.

How is Jess, Becks?

Not seen Les Mis, but Alfie Boe singing 'Bring him home' is one of my favourites

Good morning all and hello , Bev.

Know what you mean Inka! I sometimes feel I'm invisible too.  I hope I haven't upset anyone.

I enjoyed SCD last night. Do you think Brucie sabotaged it before he went. Two of   the dancers  fell.

Also watched the Rememberance Service last night. Eddie is not my favourite royal but I think it was quite touching that he had a tear in his eye when families were talking about family members they had lost.

This is my tulip tree just changing colour. It's about 15 years old and hasn't yet flowered. Flowers will be a bonus as it's such a lovely tree anyway. One of the many ash trees behind. Will be a tragedy when they succumb .to the disease as they are now saying it will spread all over the country

Hi Bjay, I think it could be a cricket.

Lovely sunshine at the moment. I was going to do Monty's trick and pick up the leaves with the lawnmower but still too soggy.

Good morning F. Fs

Glad you survived the week Kate. My brother and SIL are teachers and are semi-retired but do supply teaching. They quite often get a call at 7.00a.m. to ask them to come in. It's a rural area with small schools with one headmaster covering four or five schools and it does seem chaotic from what they say.

Don't take your chooks to Spain, Geoff. Don't they have some horrible traditional games there with live chickens.

Hope your puss is okay.

My guess 8.15 

Is it an official competition and if so what are the prizes?
