Right - Fairy's envelope is in the postbox - definitely!  I've filled the car with petrol so I can pick OH up from the station this evening ... and the toast that I've just made to test out the new toaster has no calories whatsoever - how can it have?  It's just a trial run

It's my birthday

 Hope you had a brilliant birthday Lulu

Oooh  'eck!!!  The other day I told Fairy her envelope was in the post - I thought it was - I'd walked down to the post box and posted several envelopes, but .................... when I unpacked my shopping just now from my big bag guess what I found

SORRY FAIRY!!!!!!!!!!!  I'll post it this afternoon - promise!!!  but I've missed today's collection

On the plus side - at last I've bought a new toaster - hope OH likes it - in the end I went for a two slot Dualit (cream colour).  I'm fed up with buying cheapies that die just after the guarantee runs out.  I got this one from John Lewis so it's got a 2 year guarantee so fingers crossed. 

Big dead tree

When our big tree is taken down I want to keep one of the boughs as a feature in the new bed - horizontally - gently rotting down and providing a home for bugs and beetles, nooks and crannies for plants and mosses, and something for climbers to scramble over

Not me

Hi What Verdun said was fine. I should've put my brain in gear. More coffee should've been taken. Can we drop it now? I'm sure that would suit Snow . I'm in Costa now, waiting for bus home so on phone.

Please folks - if Snow wants me or anyone else to know who they are I'm sure he or she will contact us.  It was thoughtless of me to ask - there are many reasons why someone may change their name.

Hello forkers 

hey! I dont know who SNOW is either but why the curiosity?   I would hate speculation about my name If I was a new poster.  We give info about ourselves only as far as we individually want.  .....

Of course, my apologies, suitably admonished   It's just I thought it was me being thick and didn't want to appear rude by not recognising someone.

There was a time when people on this Forum changed their names just for fun all the time and I could never keep up and felt totally stupid.
