Me too, Hello and welcome to Jean. It's nice to meet you. I'm able to report that Lilli-Puss has finally returned, large as life. If cats could she's be shrugging her shoulders and saying 'what's the fuss? Three weeks AWOL - whatever...'
Have to admit to being absolutely amazed by the displays of artificial flowers one can buy these days. Unfortunately rather too amazed at the price to get out the wallet. I don't know about others with vases in the house, but I just can't get it right. Friends can present one flower and a twiddle of twisted willow in a vase, put it on the middle of the table, and it looks amazingly artistic and gorgeous. When I do it it looks like someone's plonked a flower and a silly tree branch in, lost interest, and then wandered off.
Kerole - we want to see your latest vase. MacFlax, you are totally forgiven - because you are my second favourite Australian (have a son-in-law from Sydney, so have to be careful here). Hee hee.
And Jean - please come back and write to us again and show us some pictures! We're not as silly as we sound. Well some of us aren't...
