    Oh gosh. I could probably do the typing, but not sure my 'puter will cope with Excel and internet at the same time. Okay, how's about I PM you my email and see if I can open it, then if it's a no go wait for another volunteer ?

    thanks allegra :) that's great!

    Dear all, please do note that not all of the recipes have been updated, so if you're dying to start batch cooking do give me a shout and I'll tell you if I've had chance to update those so far :) am about 1/3rd of the way through. :) Mentally I set myself a deadline of sunday lunch time to do planner and update recipes, so I feel things are progressing well.:beer::beer:

    There are quite a few more snacks than are listed, but we felt it was best not to be too prescriptive about when you ate those :)

    Coffee time now :D

    I am planning to be back with Shirley's rough guide to batch cooking, but in case real life interferes, as it's been known to do, remember that we all have a date with the new Doctor at 6.20 tonight ;)

    See ya....
  • weezl I have a mouse! It must be quite a big one as seems to have eaten a cream egg AND a small roll of mini eggs that were meant to go on tomorrows pudding! Inconsiderate mouse it is....Keep up the good work pepys...cant believe how much work you have all done in such a short time...just hoping that weezl doesent get pregnant again too soon as these "adventures" do seem to be intertwined with growing and shelling babies!!
