My Christmas present (gardening) list

A Chimney pot, vouchers and one of those lovely padded kneelers.....oh and a very nice bird table I've seen

I can't believe I've missed a Monty programme......I knew nothing about it.  That just shows how much TV I've been watching......not even that clued up on what's going on in the world, apart from poor Lynda Bellingham passing away

The support of here is great.  At the moment I am going through the best times if my life and have never been happier, but nit to be a pessimist I know that it won't last forever and I know that when I have a bad time you will all be here for me again,as you have been before.

This forum is the best I have ever been on

Ha ha Lily, no I meant my best friend was spying on me....she 'pops by' now and agin and always sees my posts 

At at the moment she is a sort of dark blonde and shoulder length bob, I probably mean more mannerisms and personality that looks though x

Ha ha Lily, just read you last post and guess what.....I mentioned cakes 

Hi Lesley, I will keep in touch.  Can you let me know when you are in Cheshire again.

The 5 rating is like one of those certificates you see in restaurants etc, but slightly different for a retailer, very proud of my OH

LOL what a funny thread  Since as I haven't been around much I must be very mysterious 

I agree with the thoughts on Verdun but would add that these Cornishmen can have a fiery temper so wouldn't like to cross him (unless I had a load of cakes that is) 

Someone said they thought KEF would have short dark hair, so did I, which is probably why I didn't recognise her when she came along playing a KEF joke on me 

Dove I can't imagine what she looks like but again as someone has said she is very comforting to have around.

Busy Lizzie. I imagine to be quite glamorous, seen as she lives in France and always looks lovely and immaculate when a nice easy of course.

Lily I imagine to look a bit like my best friend (who is probably reading this while spying on me ), but that's probably because she is so friendly and nice, just like my best mate 

Frank......well Frank is Frank and a dancer, ex serviceman.....what more can I say about a man in uniform that can move 

Nutcutlet, I think may well be a vegetarian and very much into animal welfare.....a bit of a secret tree hugger and if I'm right I think we would get along very well 

Can't think if any more tonight, I'm surprised my brain had lasted this long!! X

Hiya Lily, missed you 

I'll have a look at Verdun's thread in a minute, does it involve cake 

All is going fab but very busy.  The environmental health officer came yesterday and OH was so pleased to get top marks and will get a 5 pleased and sales are going up so happy days, you never know I may be able to take early retirement one day and might actually get some gardening done

Hi all, sorry I've not been around to pass on best wishes, positive thoughts and hugs but sending them now to all of you who have poorly friends and relatives or who have lost loved ones........I can't imagine the sadness and pain you must have all face in your own way and I hope (although to some extent I suppose it's inevitable)  I never have to xx

Hello everyone, just a quick visit to let you know I'm still here, just not around much at the moment.  

Sorry to read on the other thread of everyone's troubles and poorly people.......big hugs to all those that need them, I may not be here but I'm still thinking of you all.
