Sadly possible del. Book cost about 15 euro and the postage would probably match. Should move to europe :D

No worries Pip. Would have been for the daughter who is a Prachettphile too. I am sure it will find a good home and be loved and licked even.

Move to Europe???? I for one am not fooled by Penners wonderful pics! Its too bloody cold mate!

Oh and if you are wondering about that move to Oz you were contemplating, there is a program on (your channel4) called Relocation Phil Down Under. An English guy who finds homes for relocating Brits. It also has alot of info about what careers are wanted here and the wages; also interviews with Pommies who have moved here already and how they are loving it.

They rave on about spending so much time outside (????? well of course) and the beaches and our wages. Hmmm they don't much mention our cost of living.

Its a program that reminds me not to take for granted what I have. Yeah it is the second day of Winter here and we wore short sleeves! And thats saying alot for us cold shy little aussies! :wink:

He finds homes for Irish people too.

I am not going to have a raging debate about Brits NOT including Scots, Welsh, Irish and various non-specific small islanders populated primarily with sheep. :D

Lucky I didn't call them all pommies.

We tend to call that lumpy thing up there with the other smaller lumpy thing near it the UK. (YES we know you are all different countries). Can't you come up with some all encompassing name like the Europeons have?

You DID call them all pommies! :shock:

If you are from England you are also from Britain, the UK and you are European.
If you are from Scotland you are also from Britain, the UK and you are European.
If you are from Wales you are also from Britain, the UK and you are European.
If you are from Northern Ireland you are also from the UK and you are European.
If you are Pip you are from Ireland and you are European.

And you're from the third island of New Zealand. :lol:

What about the New Hebrides? and that island at the bottom of England thats pays no taxes...that one.

AT LEAST I don't call ALL Brits Englishmen (only cause I had my fingers rapped quite neatly earlier in the piece on some un-named forum) :oops:

You are getting all upset like those Americans who get silly if you call them "Yanks".... "Oh no, I beg to differ. I don't come from one of the SOUTHERN states of America" :D

Anyway Pip. Can't you get UK TV? Are you blocked like we are on some BBC stuff and that.
