Volcanic ash closes parts of British air space again!!

Airports in parts of Scotland and Northern Ireland closed from 0700 BST because of risks from volcanic ash.

Glasgow, Prestwick and Derry are likely to be closed all day, while there are plans to shut Inverness in the morning only, and Belfast in the afternoon.

Disguising Christmas Presents

I have this uncanny knack of fooling my family into what they are recieving for Christmas.  Its all about the wrapping which i am not a fan of.  I can make a boxed game look like a football and as for wierdly shaped boxes or packages, forget it.  So it is a standing joke within my family that all their presents will be a ‘surprise’ even though they have asked for it!!!
