    Lets face it, if my spine was more flexible - I'd, er, reach some nuts down from the kitchen cupboard.

    I meant to enquire whether WvS was chipper, but with the lifespan of some of our small furry friends I thought iy might be best not to. Glad he's still here - and wilful by the sound of it.

    We've left our Christmas tree to later this year - expect to get one on Friday. I expect pictures will follow! Now, I noticed that Noodle is in the anti-mince pie camp but Hil is definitely pro. Are mince pies a marmite thing, if that doesn't sound ...

    Here's my suggestion, for what it's worth. Have you ever thought of writing and illustrating picture books? You are an artist and a writer after all, and above you mentioned writing for your children. Having seen some of your art, I'm sure you could ...

    tarquilla Feeling a bit chuffed. An article I sent off back in 2012 is being published next month in a magazine and they even want to send us a cheque for it - I hate waiting but sometimes it's worth it!

      Stephen Mark Trouble is, the voice is my favourite instrument and he may have been a drip, but I would say he had one of the best voices; the most versatile of voices, I've ever heard. I know..............,

    I wouldn't get too hung up, Ele - I think it's natural after the over-stimulation of a big win, to feel frazzled by all those sensations that haven't been processed yet and incorporated into your DNA. Also, *writing* doesn't just mean applying bum ...

    Don't formalise it as a case of whether you write or not. Just think of it as something you're doing or not doing at a given moment in time, & try not to tie it up too much with your sense of identity. Good luck and a Merry Christmas!

    Ooooh, Champers!! Don't you just love it? I'm being a cheapskate and got half a dozen bottles of Prosecco in Sainbury's with 25% off when you buy six, so that worked out pretty reasonably!! For the first time ever, Mr Noodle has won the Christmas ...

    Thank you Athelstone - Christmas wishes to you and all Cloudies. I'm in the 'lucky' position of being retired after years of slogging at the workface. Trouble is, after baking mincepies, sausage rolls, shortbread and Christmas cake for the family, ...
