Hi Kate, I'm feeling great! Had a lovely day today, the weather is glorious.  Heard you were having a rough time weatherwise and I think I read on another thread that you'd had a headache for about 4 days.  Hope things have improved and you're feeling a lot better.  x

Thanks Shazza - tomorrow will be better (it's still raining outside). It's supposed to be warmer and NOT RAINING tomorrow. :-*
