Having posted in a hurry this morning, gone out on a butterfly walk where a) we saw very few butterflies and b) we got absolutely soaked, and now logged on again I am amazed at the brain power harnessed on mumsnet!!

Thank you for all getting into it -some of the answers seem SO obvious when you know them.... Am in awe ....

so blue when crumpled

Hocuspontas - how did you get blouses for 10? Am being very dense.
