I am SO going to try those cheese breads - I am sure my family will bless you forever and ever! The only trick is whether I can actually pull them off without flopping them!
So glad that you are safe and cozy with the cool co-workers! Hopefully you can get the woodstove issue sorted out to both of your satisfaction! Seems such a waste to not be able to use something so useful and cheap .... And grrrrrrr to your manager for his lack of support and compassion!! Yuk - be glad you're not married to him .... now there's a thought to cheer you up
