Finally, a little hooray for a very brave soldier (not my husband) over in Perth with the Special Air Service (they're the best soldiers in the world) who won the highest honour, the Victoria Cross medal for Valour, in Afghanistan. It's the 2nd one since the Vietnam War. Extra special that he's the father of beautiful twin girls too!! I wonder if he can make Poh's pumpkin soup too, probably. Have a fantastic week everyone, love Posie
