My fave Danish ice hockey team winning the cup last night after scoring 2 goals in 21 secs to come from 1-2 behind and winning 3-2 literally in the last minute of the game.

Denmark winning the World Championships in handball tonight after 10 games unbeaten including a win in the semi over the then reigning champions.

Happy days!! :D

Spring isn't far away now.  They'd cut the meadow where I walk the dogs today, that smell of fresh cut grass and the birds singing lifts your spirits.

Make the most of it, before you know it they will be ignoring you. I can go hours without either one of my two speaking to me - they want me quick enough when they are hungry mind. Was looking at holiday pics last night and really wanted to go back 4 to 6 years to when they were little and wanted Dad.

When I first applied for my new apartment and moved in, I was told its energy class rating was D, although it "might do a bit better" than that.

From Day One I thought that assessment was way off.  This place is a brand new build and it's been far warmer than my old place.  I barely needed the heating on during the cold snap with ice and snow a few weeks ago; in the old place I'd have needed five layers, including my thick housecoat and a hot water bottle.

Now I've had a chance to sit down and read the blurb that came with the new property I realise I've been right all along.  The property is actually rated as class B.  It's insanely efficient compared to my old flat.

And to think British Gas wanted me to pay them £75 a month for my energy.  I wasn't paying that much in my old place, and that was all electric with a key meter!  As things stand I'll be unlucky to pay £75 every TWO months!  Good times!

Utility companies always try it on.

United Utilities tried to make me give them around £90 a month for water, even though we had actual meter readings (when the account was in the Landlord's name) which showed we used about £35-40 a month.

Took speaking to about 5 people there before they gave in and used the lower figures.

For some mad reason our were off last week, so we get two weeks of quieter roads  - going to be a bonus next Feb too when we don't get stiffed with the school holidays tax when we go to Tenerife.

Some schools close for 1 week, rather than 2 weeks off at easter don't they, main reason why some have 2 weeks off now to make up for the week at easter.

2 weeks at whit bloomin heck i'd have loved 2 weeks off when i was at school, i remember when the summer holidays were 7 weeks, but the primary school i went to only had the usual 6 weeks break, however we had an extra week off at Christmas to compensate, by the time i went to secondary school, summer holidays were cut to the now standard 6 weeks.

Is that in US?

US have 9 to 10 weeks summer holidays, but they have summer camps that cover half of the holiday period.

It's been great for us, we've gone to Zante 3 times and Menorca twice in the second week of the holidays and it has been so much cheaper due to the rest of the UK being back in school. They get 6 and a half weeks off in summer.

It is that long since I was at school I can't even remember how long we were off for
