Re: Sports Desk

Agree! ;)? England were woeful and Scotland were good, but the Portugal vs Germany match was excellent. I was pleased for Poland too - before it started, my Polish friends had no hope of getting anything from that match! :D And the same is true of Hungary against France :) Which rugby match do you m...

Not at all, Rachel. ;)? I also once made use of the school's 'emergency pants' :oops:

Trainers with Velcro straps instead of laces. No more fiddly shoelace-tying. Aged eight, it felt like the future had arrived.

Re: Weird Dreams

A couple of nights ago, I visited my uncle's nursery in south Cambs. It was a gloriously hot summer's day. His staff had changed since I was last there - I didn't recognise any of them and they clearly didn't know who I, the stranger in their midst, was. The grounds were larger than I remembered, th...

Re: Ideas / Improvements / Requests for the Forum

Hi this may not be the best time to suggest a new thread seeing how quiet it is at the moment on this forum. Could just end up with me talking to myself. However, I have been thinking I would like to speak with other adoptees who struggle with alcohol. Hmm maybe I need to do some sort of shout out ...

Re: The Road to Abstinence.

I know you have it within you to smash this new sober week, Cowboy ;)? With lockdown easing, let's consider it a fresh start to life, not a return to the things before that weren't good for us. We can live differently, live better, live more healthily and zestfully. And sobriety should definitely be...

On paper that was our toughest game in the group.in reality methinks it will be Scotland....... Agree ;)? Yesterday was great but I think Scotland will be enormously hungry to beat us.
