Re: Chrysanths and gro-bags

Thank you for your reply LL.

Re: My, how things have changed

It certainly is a change Gwen. I used a vapouriser for my oldest son when he was ill with too frequent bronchitis.

A friend came today for me to sign a leaving card, and I gathered up all my wool for her. End of an era!

Re: Latest knitting projects

Well done June! You are always so busy with crafts.

Re: All Creatures Great and Small

I don't watch every episode of The Yorkshire Vet, but when I do, I really enjoy it. I can remember one of my sons rolling about the settee with laughter reading the books.
