Re: The Games Thread

Pantaloons

Not that I would wear them. I just like the word and it would be nice to talk about 'my pantaloons'.

Edit: just seen it - HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARK! \:)/ \:)/ \:)/

Re: Late lounge (& other non-UK locations...)

Wotcha TC and everyone else :\: I hope to be around for a few weeks.

In the meantime.... that s...

Don't bother m'dear. I've been baking already. Well, it's better than loafing around doing nothing.

Re: KEEPING IN TOUCH ON THE FORUM

Well, hello guys. It is not right to return just because... but tomorrow I am 5 years sober and it is not about flowers, cakes, chocolates, laudits or plaudits. It is about hope.

Re: KEEPING IN TOUCH ON THE FORUM

Hello dear people. :\: Just popped in, a bit tardily, to wish you all a very Happy New Year and I hope that you achieve all that you desire in the coming months. New Year's resolutions? They are noted for being things we break but - well, why not go for it? Right off the top off my head I can think ...

Re: Late lounge (& other non-UK locations...)

All quiet in here (apart from some genteel snoring from behind the sofa).

I guess four in the morning counts as an 'early mooch' rather than a 'late lounge` so I will sneak out quietly and take a stroll around the shores of Lake BE.

Re: The 2017 Challenge

ME, I too have been bereaved in the past few days. It is a shock and it hurts but we need to feel that. I respect my loved one too much to get drunk on his memory. Somehow I feel that that in you. Keep well my friend

Re: Personal Goals

Hey, wiener one. Regards the fagorillos. There is a bin-da-smokes thread buried in the depths of Physical Health. I used it for a while with great success. Why not revive it? I have to admit that in the early days a cheeky smoke staved off a slip or two but I do really have to say this: it doesn't h...

Re: Darcy's Fitness and Weight Management Club

Or lose 1/2 lb every week consistently. In 10 years time you will have disappeared. Or do what I did. Lose it very slowly but never put it back on. Takes years. Hey! Yes I am going to be smug. It is years later. I am thin. Do it once.Never too late. I will be 90 in 30 years time. And thin. And sober...
