Re: KEEPING IN TOUCH ON THE FORUM

You rang, m'lady? :lol2: This is getting ree-dick-you-larss! A bit like rewinding my life. Never throw anything away, including old passwords.

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Ha Ha! i am being naughty but I have not googled and have no idea what a pittosporum is. Naughty childish Dave is having a silly boy laugh and being, quite frankly, playground, :D I hope I have one and it grows, majestically. Assessments are cool because they work two-ways. Boss assesses you and you...

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

There then, that is sorted :? Like he said .. away from the fleas. ( Lurkers Lounge hint hint. Just stay away from the cellar.. No, do not ask. ). Just lurk in the annexe. Good books, warm fire, the gentle buzz of friendly chat on the other side of the door. And friends on tap when you need them. :D

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Yay! Celebrating the Bay, No Way! Rosie is right. That has been a mighty battle DD. Mind you, I give it 2 months before you are down the supermarket buying bay leaves because you junior daughter cannot contemplate a good old beef stew/casserole without it.

Caroline, I really do understand how stress leads to a feck it moment and then... But off-loading? That really is what the heart of BE is all about. My goodness, I have sure off-loaded!

Re: The 1 Year Milestone

Actually, Dave was talking about trifles and his exceptionally good memory, no more, no less. There really is something intrusive about scaffolding and blokes working on the outside of the house, isn't there? At least when they come indoors you know exactly where they are. You can sort of isolate th...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

If you can find one that is open it can also be good to pop in a church outside of services, find a quiet corner and pray, meditate or just chill out. It can work for the atheist too. Places of worship are also places of tranquility. I have, as an agnostic and as a Christian, been refreshed after ta...

Re: And Now For Something Completely Different...

So the taxi man is a er .. twit. I'm sure he meant no harm but it just shows how easy it is to put one's foot in it! Your nephew will get over it and probably dine out on the story in years to come. In the meantime, why not be pleased that taxi-man thought you were of a younger age? I am sure it is ...

Re: Just want to share.

I always thought that poem was written by a guy called Tom Edwards, a former Radio Caroline and elsewhere DJ and a self-acknowledged, I mean open about it, recovering alcoholic with a shed load of AF years behind him. Anyway, it is the words and thoughts that count. If I ever came up with something ...

Licking the spoon/mixing bowl when mum made a cake - good.

Licking the boss's ass boots - bad.
