Hello smiley - smiley

I've just got back after a while away from Hootoo, so I thought I'd pop round and say hi.

Hi! smiley - biggrin

See you're having a wee bit of a break yourself - hope that's what it is anyway. See, I feel 'hi'-thwarted now, so I'm just going to sit down here and wait till you get back. smiley - zen

Life is busy smiley - puff Having returned to Hootoo with a bit of a flourish, I'm already wondering how long it's going to be before I lapse again (No! We cannot have this! The world of work must not be allowed to interfere with Hootoo! smiley - laugh)

All my family is on your side of the pond at the moment, which means I am getting regular weather reports. Everey time I speak to my Dad, he begins with 'Guess how cold it was in Crumbly Winklepicker, North Dakota last night?' And I sigh and say, 'Oh, I don't know.' And he says, 'Go on, guess.' And I say, 'All right, then, minus a hundred.' And he says, 'You're being silly now.' And I say, 'Sorry Dad, all right then, minus twenty.' And he grins (you know how you can hear someone grinning over the phone?) and gives me the correct and usually bonkers figure and we agree it's not fit out for man nor beast. The Weather Channel has a Number One Fan and it's my father.

So ... plenty of socks and woollies at you and G-force both (those smilies made me chuckle!)

I've got the heating on here too, mind smiley - winkeye
