I have said thank you but can never find the words to say to them how much it means to me.

I have done a stack of ironing, a heap of washing and now just waiting for mum to come over, she is running late

It is a lovely day here, may have a coffee now and sit out in the garden

It's those small gifts that make the giver feel so good...almost selfish.

So Kylie, I am sittiing here knowing that you are a day ahead. How is the end of the world going down under? Any excitement? Seems foolish to me for you to do the ironing when the world is ending.

Mum has been over, always nice to see her

I went out this afternoon to get Steve a small surprise Christmas present, as he knows everything he has got, like for him to have surprises too

I feel for you Simonbaker, this task is so hard to deal with when you are trying to change your eating habits. You are doing such a great job though, so try not to let this baking get you down.

I so admire you SB. When I was told I couldn't have sugar, flour, eggs etc. for at least awhile, I gave up my clients and made the decision not to do any baking for gifts or home either. In fact I gave away all my supplies to take away the temptation. You go girl, you can do this. You are doing amazingly well.
