Congratulations, Finn!

Well done on the new job, Supersal!

Chattie, very interested to hear you had visited Seefeld which I hope you enjoyed. I had three holidays there many years ago and on the first I went to Neuswanstein and Oberamergau and also to Lake Achensee.

I visited Seefeld again on a day visit about 11 years after the last previous visit and found it bigger.

About a year ago I holidayed in Mayrhofen and went back to Neuswanstein, Oberammergau and, on another day, Lake Achensee and saw them again just over 40 years after that first holiday in Austria. Poignant.

A neighbour has just dropped by with a large quantity of parasol mushrooms and ceps/porcini/penny buns for me.

A couple of very delicious dinners lie ahead! a bit of work to process them though as well because some will have to go into the freezer. Too much to eat all at once.

Congratulations Dr Finn and hope your health soon catches up with the rest of your good news. I had also seen your posts on FB, but it's great to see you back here as well - not that I seem to get on here very much at the moment! :lol:

Great news about the new job, too, Supersal. And best wishes to everyone else on their happy news.

I have today and Monday off, which I don't think my colleague is too happy about, although she feels free to take days off when it suits her - she has been at the college for over 20 years and worked on her own for over a year, before I joined, so she's probably used to having her own way. But she also had 2 weeks off in the summer, whereas I only managed one because of resits and I really do need a break before the students come back on the 24th!

Sorry, that turned into a bit of a whinge! :lol: :roll: I'm just glad to have a long weekend, even though my plans to go away fell through, so I'm staying at home.

I might manage to knit a couple of hats for the Operation Child shoeboxes whilst I'm off at least. One of our Church children's workers has asked for 40 so they can be put into boxes that the children are making up. Would have had to start sooner to do all of them, but I know she has a few other volunteers.

Well, Dr. Finn, it's really good to hear from you again.

Congratulations on your marriage.

You will notice that I've not asked you to start drabbling immediately.

Great to see you back on here, Finn, although I'm not going to reiterate congratulations, only hoping to meet up in RL soon ( and to catch up with Susie and Tristan, hint hint :) )

Supersal, good luck in the new job! I've just gone freelance after a move so no 1.5 salaries for me....

Cestina, can you freeze porcini? I dry them on that very rare occasions when we have a surfeit.

Yes but you part cook them first. Or wholly cook them - I fry gently in some butter with a little oil, onion and caraway seed. But one could leave out the latter two....

I'm popping this in happy news (although I'm terrified). I've been asked to teach on a special class next week as a favour to someone (coerced by boss when I'm far too busy!) and got the programme today to see that I both follow and am followed by two of the authorities of my field! :o

Well done, Roversgirl - that's truly a compliment. I'm sure you'll do fine, even if your knees are figuratively knocking!!

Thank you, although I'm under no illusion they just needed an English speaker to fill a slot. :lol: Still, it should be a good experience!

I daresay, but it's still a compliment to be asked to speak among acknowledged experts - besides, not all experts are interesting speakers, though I trust that these will be.

Real compliment that - and being nervous about it is normal - even the greatest actors can still get stage fright. :D

Yes, definitely and it will be an experience! :-) Finally, (after 3 postponements because of work), booked my "end-of-summer" trip (now in November) to the UK. Looking forward to a break!
