What is a haricot?

19 Oct

This was how Cal greeted us this morning.

His days at the moment are a whirl of cooking, housekeeping at the hotel (his specialist subject), cleaning, increasingly independent bus trips and parties. He seems to have a birthday to celebrate every few days. Combine that with Halloween, Bonfire Night and Christmas discos and you realise Cal is having a perfect autumn.

His texts remain random.

We had a brilliant night out at the pub with old friends we’ve not seen for ages last night. Beer, food and lots of laughing. Just the thing for dark nights.

Thank you for the tea towel voting. They are now in the next stage of production and will be ready for Christmas presents very soon. And we’ve had a rush on hoodies and only have four left! People’s kindness continues day in day out – completely out of the blue TKOE has received £400 from Scottish Bert’s 70th birthday. Thank you so much for thinking of TKOE. and Newent School have made a donation of £290 too, which was also a lovely surprise 🙂 🙂 

Now, the TKOE web domain name needs renewing again. Long term followers will know we had to continue TKOE because Rosie renewed the name the day before she died. Shall we, shan’t we …..well, it doesn’t require much thinking about. Yes, we are going to continue with The Knock on Effect. We’re thinking about the focus for next year too. . .:)

    Had a great birthday party. People who should have been there were never far from our minds as was the TKOE. Happy to help. And so glad I ordered a sweatshirt. It’s going to Iceland on Monday. Sounds like Cal is having the time of his life. Good for him xx
