Such a relief the bat has survived this long. Sadly only one so far. Most summer nights I go out to watch them.
Did you have plans WW? I guess that's not really allowed when descendants are nearby. Mine is 300 miles away :D
Big smile from me after the post arrived. HUGE cheque in settlement of PPI claim and all mine :D Just in time to buy a new lawn mower :roll:
Aww Del. Just accept it, your daughters are wonderful, they love you and they're growing up :D :D

PS First swallows seen just now. Right on schedule and chattering to each other :D

Oooh how lovely! :D

At least I don't have to worry about bills being paid now AND back to a sort-of work routine to keep things moving. :D

I tried on my gala dinner dress again to see how it looks with a pair of shoes I have. They work! :D I discovered that there's a zipper on the side. I nearly dislocated my shoulder getting in and out of it last time. All I had to do was unzip that side zipper. :oops:

And, got a package from the Disney store. :D Love getting packages in the mail! It doesn't even really matter what's in them. It was just some little stuff to give to the girls as rewards for good grades, etc. One of them is a small Sugar Rush stationery set. After looking at it, I kind of want to keep it for myself. :oops: It has Sugar Rush sticky notes and everything!

I love this thread. Theres is always loads of good news and smile s.

H is doing studies on Medieval England this term and had to do some words and sentences for homework. M and I were trying to explain "class" to her... had to laugh that she didnt understand class... yes we do have "levels" here... but she kept saying so the Lord was richer right?

Anyway... she wrotena sentence using the word SERF... showing that she understood what it meant so she was reading it out to us...

Now... remember. . H's brain doesnt process in the usual way.. she needs to be exposed to a new word constantly in context for her brain to recognise it or else it "converts" that word automatically to a similar word she is familiar with... so...

"When the Lord of the manor sold his estates to another man all his smurfs stayed on their farms."

:lol: :lol: She almost weed herself when she realised what she had said :lol:

Lovely news about the PPI money, enjoy your new lawn mower. My plans were to get the jobs done that I should have done last week. :oops:

Love the smurf story Del :lol: :lol: :lol:

Great news about the PPI Janet

What made me smile (yesterday actually) was finally getting my hands dirty and planting some seeds. As well as the usual Tomatoes & Chillis, this year I am experimenting with some more unusual ones - Quinoa, Inca berries, Goji Berries and tomatillos - should be interesting! :think:

Del, that's priceless! :lol:

Chilli, that sounds so fun! I would love to see some pictures as they come in. The only thing different we're trying this year is beets - not exactly exotic. Oh, and some gourmet strawberries, one white and one purple. It's too early for us to plant anything here, except for the snap peas. I get to plant those today. :D

I thought I'd be writing this in the frustration thread - totally forgot about something I started in the slow cooker yesterday and it was on all night. :oops: I was sure it would be ruined. Couldn't believe it when I tried it and it was fine! :D
