Geoff this is soooooooooooooo exciting.

Thanks for all the kind words I am now feeling tired just thinking about it.


Like the look of the champers. Congratulations to all forkers, who would have thought it when Kate first opened the thread. Here's to the next 10,000.

Congratulations on the new job Kate

Cheers. Chris.



Popped in just in time. Ta for the champers :- )

May the forks be with you for the next 10 000


Love a bit of sparkly stuff myself. Just wish I'd joined Forkers earlier. Used to look at it and want to join in.

So glad I can now enjoy this celebration.

Can we have ChelseaBuns as part of celebration.

Still not got a satisfactory pole! Just looked at Wilkinson web site, may be something there. Will go up to store later.



There you are Kate-Chris has invited you to disappear into the garage with OH for sharpening

I trust lottery ticket has been bought?

Congratulations everyone

I'm sure this thread could be adapted into a radio serial "The Forkers" - like a comedy version of The Archers.  

Bjay - you can eat what you like now you are burning off all those calories with your pole dancing! 


I will buy the lucky lottery ticket



OMG & now the smoke alarm has just gone off! Problem, how do you stop it? No button as with old! Solution, remove whole from ceiling for the time being, which is what I seem to remember doing last time.....

Poor OH has headache, not surprised with all the banging & painkillers not worked yet! What a days' holiday!

Just had jammy toast.... J.


How to stop a smoke alarm - wave a tea towell or similar underneath it.

Seem to remember ours going off a lot when had CH done. OH did remove it


Thing is (hic!) will put it all on -weight - (Hic) with all this champagne bubbling (hic ) around! (hic!!)

Miss Becks

Yay!! Congrats to all Forkers!

Cake has turned into a disaster. Put too much mixture in tin, and now it's rising into a huge sponge mushroom!


Becks - a quick trip to the shops might be called for?

Caz W

Becks - take a pic and post it here as Mushroom of the Day  .


Miss Becks

LOL! Caz. Well, I would, but I've took it out the oven and it's sunk now!!

Geoff, my Dad is a human dustbin! He will still eat it, once Jess has ladened it with icing and sprinkles! It seems cooked in the middle. Oh well, it's the thought that counts!! He lives near a hospital!


Becks I am sure that it will taste lovely

Geoff no more fireworks


Lots of noise & muttering going on here- engineer not me, yet, nor OH!

Think I might just go into kitchen & do something.... am bored of perusing web sites, darent shop any more on-line. Cant hear myself think to deal with paperwork sorting, nor try reading anything.

Tomorrow the greenhouse will get done! Shall just clear out of house & leave everyone to it. Can get dirty & then will be able to shower later on- well I 'b' well hope so! J.

Miss Becks

I think we can safely say I'm no competition for Delia Smith!

 Hopefully once it's decorated it will look okay.


WOW Geoff - was that to celebrate Forkers -
