Thanks Danuta!  Though I didn't get any of your rain...

I'm in charge of a child for the next four mornings!  Not sure what I'll find to do with her.  Scary stuff!

I'll try that again!

Oh dear, Elsa, don't put that thought into Mutley's head, I don't know what to do with children at the best of times!  devil  

It didn't go too badly, she watched her cartoons on TV and I read my book, she didn't actually speak the whole time I was there. I can cope with that kind of thing.  roll_eyes

I'll try that again!

Danuta, she is seven.  Her Mum says that she can't get her away from TV in school holidays;  that's good for me...wink

Elsa, please - as if I would!  whistle

I'll try that again!

On the subject of absent friends: it was great to see a comment from S.O.L (Sarah) on the blog today. She was the Frugal Queen before circumstances meant she could no longer be online with us. Hopefully normal service will be restored in a short few months.
