I'm sorry to hear that, Edi, not exactly the kind of news you want to receive anyday let alone while in birthday-celebration-mode

Condolences on your loss, hope you nevertheless enjoy your sojourn in the UK

Thanks. I have a fortnight off. Fortunately I have lots of leave left this year. I'm going to buy a few books. I went to the local library today as Mum had to work and I needed to go into town (to fail to find a smart blouse) and found Redeeming the Lost. I couldn't borrow it as I don't have a library card but I read the first few chapters. Now I have to use my credit card and buy the series from Amazon (as bookshops round here don't seem to stock them)

Thanks.

Sure thing. I'll be back next week some time. This month was kind of crazy without this so free time is rather scarce. I have to pick up my laptop some time too. The one I bought was faulty so the shop (BCC) had to order me in another.

Thanks.

Now that I'm back in Delft I should say why the cupcakes Cheryl posted were very relevant.

Over here it's traditional to bring in cake on your birthday or round about (I brought mine in on Monday fortunately). I worked out how many people were in my section max., how many people normally turn up and how much cake they like. I may have over-estimated slightly. I brought in 75 bits of cake most of which were cupcakes

Yep, "trakteren" or treating your friends, family and colleagues on your burthday is a custom here. You can chose what to "treat" with though.

A happy belated birthday, Edith! We really have to get together soon, preferably before the madness of the December month starts

Near Boston- for work. We have a new shiny set-up to look at. I was going to spend more time away but I've really had enough time off now.
