Just when you thought this thread couldn't get any more brilliant... it's ME!!!!
This is just really weird, I've not been here in utterly ages and then I get this feeling I ought to have a look. And almost everyone I remember from the good old days is here, in this 'ere thread! It's like a reunion, except there's nobody here I dislike.
Blimey, this place hasn't changed much since I was last here...
So yeah, must be what, 4 years since I last was here? In that time I've got divorced, moved house, got remarried, changed jobs three times, fought a long and protracted battle with my endowment company (and won!!), adopted my orphaned niece, did a college course and paid off nearly all my debts. Phew! Actually, when you condense it down like that it sounds like I've been really busy and strung out. Lordy, how did I survive all that? Now all I've got to do is find a new house and batter the tax office into submission and then I can take the family on a nice holiday somewhere...
Big hello's and hugs to all those of you who've been here - Crazi, Jaq, Hins, Tara (and Dace. go on then
), Cath, Rave, Cand, Gerbil, Cheese, Narth (congrats, I hope you love having kids as much as I do), Irish, Wolfie (of course I remember you), Oni, Commie, Pab.
And extra big hugs and such to Mata, Lo, Syuu and my arch nemesis Inky - I love ya too, you big loon
People who really need to come in here - Jicama, Kathoid, Spuglet, Porce and Crissi. Then life would be complete!
Edit: Oh, and I quit smoking again!
