8) Hi everyone. Prue here used to be Breezy, but was unable to log in as that, as my account has been inactive for such a long time. I haven't been online much at all for the past year as it has not been the luckiest of year's for me, but that's life got to take the rough with the smooth.
This day out at Windsor sounds like a great day out. It's been quite a few years since I visited that area.
I definitely want to come, but I'll have to rely on my other half being generous enough to drive me there as it's a bit of a trek from Bristol where I now live. You need a second mortgage to afford public transport!
:roll:

Hope to meet up with a few members from the site on this fun day trip.

Cheers Prue x

Sorry to say I will be unable to be a part of the get together but please try and make it an annual thing I promise to turn up sooner or later :D

Waiting for pennies from heaven.

I am surprised we have not had a run down on how Sep 8th went?? I hope it went well :D Any pictures? Did a good number of people turn up, or did the day to day struggles of life put a dampener on the turn out?

All the best.

I would have been there - but for this stupid lump turning up and now I have to go into hospital at the end of the month to get the damn thing shifted properly - its not dodgy or anything but they called me in on Friday to do it and after it bled for about an hour (I was seriously faint and weak and wobbly) has to be done by someone else - this is all cause it is sitting on my birthmark - what a pain and then I go and miss the Windsor meet.
(I only live about 5 miles away too) the one person who would have almost been able to walk there.

sorry to hear about all that worry you had

hehe I thought I spotted you Berni :lol:

falkor approaches likely female seated alone

"Errrr excuse me - have you been to Windsor Safari Park at all madam?"

female looks at me amazed "Well yes actually I HAVE"

falkor now convinced this is Berni "well is your birth mark alright now then?"

woman with insane look of incredulity "what birth mark?"

falkor now a few little doubts creeping in "are you meeting anybody here at all?"

"NO I AM NOT - WHY?"

falkor "errrr never mind" slowly slopes off towards the car park :D

falkor looking back .... sees the female on her mobile phone talking rapidly to somebody :twisted:

See what you put our poor Falkor through :( Let's do it again :lol:
Berni, you do not have to explain why you did not turn up. If that is the worst that Falkor encounters in his life than he is one lucky chap 8).
The one thing that we can all agree on and that is, life is good and no one is judgmental of another :D
Things happen,and such is life!
Everything must be O.K with you and at the moment that is all that matters. :)

Thank you
Lee.
