No pics, because I was too busy chatting Suz and Mike bought me a GORGEOUS picture frame, one of those leather ones that you can put several pics in. I have specific ones in mind And they bought me a pack of cupcakes, which I don't love more than Martin *glares at Nad* but I do love LOTS!!!!
      Yay!! Glad to hear it! And sounds like you got some awesome pressies, you deserve it *huggles*!

      William and Mary is extremely cute, I loved it too! Glad you're enjoying it, although it does make me laugh that it's on the BBC in America. It's not actually a BBC series as it was shown on ITV which is BBC's main rival in the UK, although obviously ITV doesn't have a channel in the US (thank god because it's an awful channel!).

        As a stunt coordinator I think he has to be in "good" condition. He could get hurt otherwise. But ask Sarai, she might know

            Just keep it in mind for future reference. Only 12 episodes are available in the US unfortunately, but OH so good.

            Busted. But I don't think you have to be a midwife or an undertaker to enjoy it.

              Well I think I've caught up on my sleep, didn't wake up until 2pm

              I wanted to show it to my brother-in-law (Charles' sister's husband), Pat who you may have Farmvilled with ). Frances (Charles' sister) died last March, and he's struggled a lot but he's met someone new recently. Problem is, there's a lot of resistance to their relationship because there's a bit of an age difference - which is daft all things considered, because it''s not like it's a first or even a second or third in this family. So I wanted Pat to see it but also the rest of the family to remind them that happiness is a rare commodity and should be embraced wherever possible.
              I hope it helps, even just a little bit. And you're right, if he's managed to find solace and happiness the age gap is irrelevant.




              Ah good old Significant Date Syndrome. It sucks, I know. The first is the worst; it always is, but it gets a little easier after that, although there's probably going to be a small part of you that will always think September sucks (I still hate October - 1st to 21st - after that, I'm fine but the anticipation and build up is almost always worse than the actual dates ).
              Personally, I think it's impossible to have a sunny outlook all the time and a little pain helps us appreciate what's good in life so much more. The stronger people are always those who have endured hardships and come through, and found ways to focus their emotional energy in a positive way.

              And becuase I'm crap with words and others say it better, (not to mention just a tad tipsy - hmm port and brandy - nice!) go watch this video/listen to the words. I shall probably make you cry again but it's perfect.

              Yes, you made me cry again, but it's so beautiful.

              "I could have missed the pain, but I'd have had to miss the dance" pretty much says it all. *hugs*


              She looks like she's grinning her head off!

              *and again because Bree deserves it*
              I know! That's what struck me

              They were really yummy! But I have a confession to make.

              I didn't have a dessert because I was too full

              Edit: Oh Lord! I checked that vid out on youtube and found this one....


              Here's the poem, spoilered for space

              "When Tomorrow Starts Without Me" - David M Romano

              Spoiler:
              When tomorrow starts without me
              And I'm not there to see;
              If the sun should rise and find your eyes
              All filled with tears for me.
              I wish so much you wouldn't cry
              The way you did today;
              While thinking of the many things
              We didn't get to say.

              I know how much you love me
              As much as I love you;
              And each time that you think of me,
              I know you'll miss me too.
              But when tomorrow starts without me
              Please try to understand,
              That an angel came and called my name
              And took me by the hand.

              She said my place was ready
              In heaven far above;
              And that I'd have to leave behind,
              All those I dearly love.
              But as I turned to walk away,
              A tear fell from my eye;
              For all my life, I'd always thought
              I didn't want to die.

              I had so much to live for,
              So much yet to do;
              It seemed almost impossible,
              That I was leaving you.
              I thought of all the yesterdays,
              The good ones and the bad;
              I thought of all the love we shared,
              And all the fun we had.


              If I could relive yesterday
              Just even for awhile,
              I'd say goodbye and kiss you
              And maybe see you smile.
              But then I fully realized
              That this could never be;
              For emptiness and memories
              Would take the place of me.

              And when I thought of worldly things
              I might miss come tomorrow;
              I thought of you, and when I did,
              My heart was filled with sorrow.
              But when I walked through heaven's gates
              I felt so much at home;
              When God looked down and smiled at me
              From His great golden throne.

              He said, "This is eternity
              And all I've promised you;
              Today your life on earth is past,
              But here it all starts anew."
              "I promise no tomorrow,
              But today will always last;
              And since each day's the same day,
              There's no longing for the past."
              "But you have been so faithful,
              So trusting and so true;
              Though at times you did do things,
              You knew you shouldn't do."
              "But you have been forgiven
              And now at last you're free;
              So won't you take my hand
              And share my life with me?"

              So when tomorrow starts without me,
              Don't think we're far apart
              For every time you think of me,
              I'm right here in your heart.


              It's bucketing down with rain here. Very apt.

                  I think there were about 18 in total. It didn't run for long, but it was a nice show. I just love Martin Clunes though. He's a pretty big tv actor over here. First became "famous" when he was on the show Men Behaving Badly which was hilarious and a big part of my childhood TV (I know, bad parents ) and now he does a show called Doc Martin which is also quite popular over here. So if you like him I'd check those out. Although you probably have to have a certain sense of humour to find MBB funny. I love it. Not entirely sure what that says about me...but then I was weaned on a diet of Blackadder, The Brittas Empire, Red Dwarf, Allo Allo, Fawlty Towers, Dad's Army, The Young Ones...the list goes on

                    Hmm. Well I guess it says the same about me, because I love MBB too Although Blackadder left me cold since I can't stand Rowan Atkinson Doc Martin is something I've watched over and over. LOVE Martin Clunes!!

                    Dad's Army??? Jeez, you must not even have been born when that was showing

                      That's a shame, I'm not a huge fan of Rowan Atkinson but I love Blackadder. Can't argue with the genius of Tony Robinson, Hugh Laurie, Stephen Fry, Miranda Richardson, Tim McInnery and all of the rest (Blackadder 2 is clearly my favourite )

                      You know I had no idea when it was made, just went to look it up and they stopped making it in 1977 ! I thought it was new when I was young !

                        I guess I should have given it more of a try, but just seeing RA put me right off

                        Stephen Fry is another that I adore! He and Alan Davies make QI an absolute must see for me

                        You know I had no idea when it was made, just went to look it up and they stopped making it in 1977 ! I thought it was new when I was young !
                        I'm surprised it was that recent, I'm sure I used to watch it when I was a kid!

                        I've just discovered that I left the conservatory door open during all that rain I now have a huge puddle to mop up

                        Oh look! A hugpic.......

                          Thanks everyone for the good vibes and support!

                          Finally got a call from the bank. My money was not stolen. It was frozen. Someone at the bank froze my account and Charmaine's. They are saying that the person who froze the accounts was actually supposed to freeze the accounts of another couple. I have no idea who they are or why the bank is freezing their accounts. I am just happy we have ours back! I am suspecting that it was a PEBKAC error.

                              Me too! There is only one overdraft fee. I am sure the bank will be only too happy to remove that one.
                              Yes, the pic always makes me smile. Anytime I start to feel bad or sorry for myself I look at it and feel better. The only problem is that once I start I can't seem to stop. Do you have any idea how long it's taking me to type this message? My eyes keep wandering back to the picture. It's quite distracting. I'm sure that you have no idea what I am going through because it's not like you have any pictures to distract you or anything.

                              I think that SE was "win-win". They boosted all of us and you guys boosted all of them.

                                Thanks Stuart

                                Absolutely! I've just answered your comment on youtube and said

                                "It's what pulled me back from the depths of despair and made me face life again, along with my focus on Martin and the support of all of my online friends. Because of that, I will always love it, them and him

                                But I'm really not sure how I'm going to get through September. Life has a habit of going on whether we like it or not. I'll survive, because I must. I can't let Michael down."

                                Martin has given me a huge boost, and I'm sure with you all here to help me, I'll get through it, but it's going to be very hard.
                                *massive hugs* You know that we're all here for you and if you need anything from us you only have to ask. Unless it's just being our usual selves and sending love and support and huggles your way, because we'll do that anyway

                                Bree, glad you're feeling a bit brighter today and that things are getting fixed with your bank account

                                Jann, glad to hear you're in your permanent place and that all is going well so far
