We have inbuilt ward robes-how come as a chap I get less that an a third of space and have to share that with other items?-

my stuff is on hangers-am too common for tissue paper.

Why would someone trek across Antarctica in the dark and in minus70C-do they wear silk shorts?

You have just answered your own question - It is BECAUSE you are a chap !  Same in our house .

17/09/2012 at 13:31

Geoff what are you doing with  the extra space now MIL's ashes have gone?

I believe that they do wear silk undies on antartic missions.


17/09/2012 at 13:31

Geoff, sounds mad but I'll give it a bash. I'm bonkers like that

In defence of one of our posters who lives in Holland or Nederland, Amsterdam is not Holland as London is not England, probably the same ladies in those pink windows though.
It is Friesland, Groningen and Limburg, while in Germany we would shoot over the border to Valkenburg Hollands mountains, well they did have a chair lift and the best custard tarts with rice I ever ate.
Many times when they knew we were forces they would not let us buy a drink, the 51st Highland Div were the ones who took that part of Holland from the Germans and they remember to this day, wonderful people, wonderful country.

Kate -there us still half a jar to go-so we still have the jar-that is going to Selsey at some point but who knows when?

The first half is in a wood in Amsteelven

Can we please stop talking about silk undies-silk is scarce and we need to make some parachutes

Where's Becks? Has she done a Shirley Valentine or lost her laptap? She promised to keep- us posted while she was on holiday.

17/09/2012 at 13:50

llaptop not laptap

Spanish waiter seems favourite . He may grow tomatos.

Why do we need parachutes ?

17/09/2012 at 14:09

The forkers football team is going to do a sponsored jump to raise funds for a new goalkeeper-have I not mentioned this?

17/09/2012 at 14:13

Have I missed that post as well ?  Count me out . I get a nose bleed at the top of the stairs. Don't like heights.

17/09/2012 at 14:15

You shut you eyes and think of England-don't worry about the blood or injuries there will be plenty of ambulances waiting


17/09/2012 at 14:23

P Pam, does Becks have a Welsh laptop then?  ;- ) 

Sponsored jump, Geoff? I could boing up and down on a trampoline but no higher than that.

I think they may use synthetic silkworms these days and make microfibre undies.

Good afternoon my lovelies!

I've missed you lot! Haven't had chance to catch up yet. Wifi signal was really weak over there. Took about half hour for a page to load up.

But I have to admit, we had a lovely time.


17/09/2012 at 14:26

You will need a crash helmet then-don't want anybody boing over the side


17/09/2012 at 14:27

Becks is back!!-welcome home

Can you do a parachute jump for the cause?

17/09/2012 at 14:28

I would love to!! What cause is it?

17/09/2012 at 14:30

Forkers football team-Jean may need a push

17/09/2012 at 14:31

LOL. Jean has shackles! I'll just tie her to me!

17/09/2012 at 14:33

We are sowing together all the silk undies
