    Ive had the skimmiest of skims

    Di and hg.....been thinking about both of you ........pippo too.

    Hoping Sal and marigold are popping in......a great time by the looks of it to take advantage of T lowering their prices.

    You are right mrsmac....we have been so spoilt of late. Thrilled to hear the news of your retirement by the way I hope we get a blow by blow account ( not literally I hope) of that last conversation with your boss

    JTS........mr hobknob......hope you are ok

    The problem with starting a list like this is the danger you miss out someone.....so forgive me if I have.

    Sue.....are you ok?

    Evening all! We had the first night of our city's Christmas fair tonight, chilly but dry weather gave me the perfect justification for a warming hot dog and chocolate orange crepe, yum!

    I'll be dropping off my reverse advent calendar items to the local food bank tomorrow, and it's made me think that I'd also like to get some gifts for the local children's charities that do collections. If anyone knows of any good places where I could buy some smallish gifts for just a few pounds, please let me know. I don't have children and my niece and nephew only like specific things so I'm really clueless about what would be good to buy.
