I'm on it. Also, all the Jap Fancies. (I know they sound a bit racist, but they're lovely. Reeve the Baker has them.) Sorry you have to wait that long.

I have a trip booked to go back for Christmas. Haven't seen my Mom for nearly 3 years (since my Dad's funeral).

Hoping to surprise my Mom. Just hope not too much of a surprise. She's 86.

That's lovely chawkins. 86 year old mums cope well with happy surprises, it'll be cups of tea and hugs all round

Look at the muck in here.

On holiday at Paignton, my parents took us to see Leslie Crowther and Basil Brush. Larry Grayson was on the bill too.
I remember he came on stage and there were feathers everywhere. "Looks like there's been a cock fight" he said, followed by "no such luck."

Oh how I laughed. Not sure my parents did though.
