We visited my sister Jane and husband Martin in Cheshire last weekend. We were really impressed with our tour of the new Cheshire Contemporary Arts building where Jane is a Principle Lecturer & Martin is Programme Leader for Creative Music Production. (www.mmu.ac.uk/ (go to toMMU opens new state of the art building). Two of Jane's dedicated students had slept in the theatre space overnight working on a project & the recording studios were amazing. - a world away from Turners. Imi had a great time making finger puppets with Jane, fun on the xylophone and meeting Bev & John's velevety soft greyhounds.

Went skiing with Matthew English to the Snow Centre at Hemel Hempstead. Brilliant skiing on real snow. We were lucky to go in the week so not too busy. It was great fun and really hope we can get to the mountains next year. Chocolate cookie and the cup of costas not bad either. Thanks for the recommendation Thalia.
