Well done the Chugglets and good for you having a little Chugg yourself and I'm glad you are getting some enjoyment out of it.
Heading off again in the morning will be down Geordie land for a wedding over the weekend. A nice thing apart from the wedding is Tony is flying over for it and eldest daughter traveling up from down south. The first time in ages we will have all four of our "children" together so looking forward to that. FP sounds like you need a holiday to recover how about a cycle in the French alps ?.
DL very wise words from yourself on the Fostering situation and I agree with Chuggy.
Tubbs will be sending some vibes your way for the hospital visit hope all goes well.
Good luck painting totem pole how about a photo when done ?
