    Good morning!

    Inees, can I come over for some Christmas baking?...I'd love to do it with a friend!

    I was one little step from chosing Chergui as my SotD also, but then my eyes fell upon a decant of PG Ombre Fauve.
    So that's what I am wearing.

    Oh that sounds like a nice thing to do. I've never baked with a friend, only with my Mum when I was little and now my daughter, and it's huge fun. It would be even better with plenty of gossip and good coffee!

    I'm in Coup de Fouet again (Ktscchhh!) as today is finally the big day when we're leaving for Christmas at home in Wales. Lots of scurrying about carrying things down to the car and making paat-kos (apologies for spelling) but we're certainly all packed and ready to go. Can't wait to get home and see everyone.

    Have a lovely day all.

    Son is still ill, but the fever is dropping. The GP received a faxletter about the X-ray while we were there. It could be pneumonia, but the specialist thought it looked much more like a tumor. The GP has assured us that boys of 11 years old don't get that kind of cancer and that pneumonia on both sides was the logical option.

    Hi all--

    I have been a lurking for a year or so and finally joined when the fragrance reviews were no longer visible to the public. I rely on those things!!

    I have been feeling very nostalgic lately and am wearing Aramis New West, of all things! Recently I ordered two Colors de Benetton Original (I am convinced the newer green bottle does not have the same recipe!), also. I think I am missing my younger years or something.

    This morning, I put on Burberry for my coffee; this afternoon and evening it eas New West to help with chores and laundry.
