nothing doing here, I'm afraid. Down the road the houses are under 8 feet of water - and more rain to come. I'll be with you in spirit, but my energy will be elsewhere.

The nice thing about living in a small village is that when you don't know what you're doing -someone else always does!

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here, we might as well dance

Oh Cait.

I wish we could all pop round and give you a hand.

My thoughts will be with those people tonight especially the family of the police officer who lost his life.

I hope things get back to normal soon.

Children in Need night is always a time for counting one's blessings, but even more so today with so many people suffering the after effects of the weather. Unfortunately it will take a long time for their lives to return to normal, but with the grace of God and a healthy dose of good old British bulldog spirit these families will receive the support they need, and quickly.

I'll be here for the duration - just wondering how I'm going to watch any of Children in Need with no tv. Could be a challenge - but at least I'll be able to give my full attention to our mirth making activities here!

Only just over an hour to go!

Maz, do you have a t.v. licence? if so you could watch live t.v. on your computer if you have broadband.

Cait, hope everyone affected by the awful weather gets some relief soon. Wonder if there will be a "disaster" fund set up, if it's only a local collection, do let us know on here and maybe we can help out a bit?

Will be popping in and out all evening to see what's going on - do we all meet in the chat room?

Cait I was wondering how you would be as it is really dreadful up here. I do hope the flooding goes down where you are and it doesn't get worse tomorrow. I really feel for those poor families who have to leave their homes, and wonder how they will be feeling as it will be a long time before they can return. The rescue services have been amazing haven't they.
We are stranded near Hawkshead but are fine and the flooding has receded. Hawkshead was deluged yesterday but sandbags seem to have done the trick. It is very muddy and there is a lot of debris about. Fortunately it is quite hilly and all the farm animals have been able to reach dry ground.
Lots of good wishes for you all.
