LOL!!!!! I have to tell you I have a morbid fear of anything rodent and we came home (to our old money pit house) from a week away to find traces of a party thrown by a bunch of furry little creatures.

DH is a computer tech/programmer (or he was) and had old computersall over the house. Two were being used to raise up an old consul TV, others were lined up by the front door waiting to be have something done with them. And there were three in our office closet. Well, months after we had realized we were infested with critters, DH was pulling out these computers from the closet and noticed that a rodent was inside one of the empty bays. He told me to go into the bedroom and shut the door (didn't need me screaming) and took the machine out into the snowy back yard. Then came back and told me what he found....a real live "computer mouse"!

My friends here in Bristol made me smile big last night at my going away dinner in Bath. It was a lovely evening in a lovely town with lovely friends.

My Dad and border are both diabetics. I tried this new recipe for a rustic fruit tart where the filling and pastry both use Splenda. I took it out to my dad's and brought some back for the border. I wasn't all that happy with it because the fruit lost all of it's juices (fresh strawberries and blackberries).

But the two of them had huge smiles on their faces as they ate firsts and seconds! I love to be able to feed people things they normally can't have but love!

My son Nick called me this afternoon just to give me a pep talk about sticking to my new exercise program. He's the son I used to sit and drink coffee with every morning when Fisher was a newborn and I wasn't getting any sleep. He made sure to schedule his classes for the afternoon so we could have that time and I could get a shower while he watched the baby. I really miss him living here.
