We caught up with Law and Order season 11 for the week.Only to find the ending was being cut off!!! Before we could see if they were been found innocent or guilty. We are going to watch it off Universal TV channel instead, as it is showing Season 11 as well as 5*USA channel.
 The new curtains in our bedroom are looking nice and keeping the bedroom warm.
 It probably helps we have a 16 tog duvet as well ;)
