Buy a Euro for tonight - £110m (and if you win, I shall expect to see your gratitude for telling you in my bank account!)

:D Me too!

But last night was funny while waiting for John to come and set up the room. He'd said that the kittens would be let out at 4.30 local time and there was a huge crowd of chatters eagerly awaiting the event. Then one of them started to do a countdown, which really got up the noses of some people and an argument ensued. :lol:

The person doing the countdown got so annoyed that she stormed out saying she was never going to watch kittens again . . . until the next litter. :lol:

Have got my Euro ticket. If i'm a winner first thing would be a holiday in Australia :D where i would help Del get a house. She doesn't half need some good news at the moment.
Susan did an unusual thing and listened. that's not an easy task for a teacher.

I'd so love to help Del! I'd just want to go there and build the house if I have to, do something... why does she live so far away? :S
Listen.

Missed this one some how with all the car hassles - Congrats Ava - really well done! :clap: :D

Catch-up wrote:Forgot to say what made me smile.... Final grades have come in and Ava has finished out her first year of middle school on the honors roll!! :D :D :D For those of you who know all that she's been through, you'll understand how huge this is. It was only last year that she caught up academically. We are so proud of her! :D

Brilliant news. Very well done Ava :clap:

My dream holiday would be a) a ticket to Amsterdam b) immunity from prosecution and c) a baseball bat.

Just looking through some quotes from the books and came across this. I feel the same way living around here sometimes. :lol:
