Thanks for your lovely comments - I will answer them individually when I am back at my machine.
At the moment I am at a borrowed laptop - and and have highjacked it to check some emails.
I really miss doing my daily blog - but will be back slaving away after the weekend.
I am not being idle though, and couldn't resist sorting out some tomato plants in their garden - in a shower of rain!
Off to eat my reward - a mint chocolate magnun - oh well ther is always another week to lose pound. (Guess how brought the chocolate cake with then too!)
