I won't... I'll write to you every day, Del :wink:

Can you make a shandy with a Coca-Cola?

And just remember that John Stuart Mill, of his own free will, had half a pint of shandy and was particularly ill... :)

Ohhhhhhhhhh such good ideas.... lets see.... I could sell the lounge (gets calculator out), the car, the fridge, the freezer, damn the washer is worth a pot, ... ummm that gets me and the child as far as the airport (no wait, no long term parking fees since I have sold the car) does some more calculations.....

You ARE sure its legal to leave kids in a pub right?

Well I am sure I will NOT be alone. *waves at Broc* he he he

I will spend all that weekend changing avatars with Batty (wait.. aren't you going to an air show?) and posting millions of pictures of the gorgeous places and beaches near me... (you can help out on that one Q) Yeah I don't want to go to England. I have to remind myself I DO live in one of the most gorgeous places on earth.

Dammit I can't even get a sitter so I can go to the Aussie convention in Sydney Broc.

Uh, no. I haven't been to the beach in years. Don't want to, either. My dad forced me there almost every Sunday morning for the best part of a decade, whether I wanted to or not. So I have Freudian-related hydrophobia. Oh, I can still swim, and I am not actually afraid of the water. It's more like I don't want to swim ever again.

Maybe you could pay for a shrink in exchange for such pictures? :lol:

I am off to make TOFFEE! :D How long since I have made it????? My 11 year old has just told me she has never tasted it! :oops:

Back later.


:cry: :cry: :cry: I broke half my tooth off on the crappy toffee!!!!!
Crap! I have a "You HAVE to be there" appointment tomorrow and the day after. :cry: :cry:

SEE! Thats what happens to people who like sweets! Dammit. First time I have made it in 11 years.

The child loved it. Said it was the best thing she had ever tasted and I was the best Mum ever! (Yeah best Mum with half a tooth!)

SHE got really excited when I spat the half tooth out onto my hand.... "Ohhhhh! The tooth fairy is coming tonight!!!!!" :D
