Belated happy birthday, Kate 🙂

My achievement for today was to tidy up the house some more, package up stuff in 7 parcels and get it all sent off at the post office. Some of it's on its way to Libya and I was delighted to learn about the airmail posting rates for printed papers.

Back to work tomorrow. Can't wait :

wave  Today was my birthday and although I didn't do anything special I had three lots of visitors and numerous phone calls from friends and family along with some lovely presents.  It was all very nice, but the best present of all was the news that Argyll and Bute Council after a meeting today, has had to abandon its consultation process to close 25 small schools.  It is a reprieve, although the Council will announce new closure plans in March.  It is hoped our wee school will not be on the next list.

waveHAPPY BIRTHDAY, Danuta. brightsparklystuff I'm so pleased you have had such a nice birthday present from the Council. I hope you are now nicely snug with a wee dram to celebrate. champagne

I've just noticed that I completely missed Kate's recent birthday - so a very belated Happy Birthday to you, too, Kate.  wave

Today I finally managed to do something with the Christmas Pineapple - a large one that was a bit underripe when bought.  A large pineapple and coconut cake and two pineapple sponge puddings are now in the freezer.

Gone crazy. Back soon.

Happy Birthday Danuta !!!!!   big_hug magic

Here's crossing fingers that your council forgets to start the school closure process again....

 

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

Good news about the school, fingers crossed they keep it open- gives you time to campaign for it.

Hope the sun is shining for you!
