TheProfiteroleThief Mon 08-Jun-09 12:53:27

Hi all
pottering this morning and trying to consider adopting a new philosophy to complement flying. Apparantly (according to chinese proverb) to be happy, we all need

something/someone to love
something to do
something to hope/aim for

I liked this - with a view to plannign for future as well as managing week to week.

scattyspice Mon 08-Jun-09 12:54:15

Hi all. Back at work so just popping in. All kinds of chaos has descended while I've been off (I am getting organised at home, but not at work). Also I need to fill in various forms and jump through various hoops due to having an extra week off to look after ds. Better crack on I suppose.

Catch up later.
