    Default Hello from Wales

    Hey, my most demented and loyal peeps

    Just to say Hi from my beloved home town and apologise for my recent absence from the forum. I am currently visiting my lovely sons who I miss very much. It is vair vair cold here at the moment and I am missing my homeland a lot, but it's been nice to see all my family and catch up with everyone.

    I've been reading up on the posts when I can, if not commenting on as many as I should, but just wanted to say Hi - be nice to Taffy while I'm away

    Back on December 19th, just in time for Christmas

    WG.

    Good to see you're enjoying your trip despite the chilliness. How are you finding things in the UK (well, your part of it) now that you've been gone from there for 3 years? I take it NZ still comes out on top, as you say you're missing it, so that's all good.

    Wonder if you'll see any snow before you leave.

    How can we be mean to Taffy when he hardly ever shows his avatar around here? I'm beginning to think that MB is really the star around here. Not that it's a bad thing, but how come ol' Taff gets all the glory?

    Now I'll just sit here and wait for an anvil to drop on my head.

    Have a nice visit with the chilluns, WG.

    I think Taffy's up to his insisors in work, Selchie, which might explain his 'dashing in and out again' moments.

    Either that or he'd better have a good excuse.

    Oh, I figured he had better things to do than play with us , but thought I'd give him a poke anyway. Just for fun and to hear him holler. Not much chance of that now, eh?

    Thanks for finding the time to pop in on your mates here Lisa- good to see you have your priorities right.

    Yes it is rather cold at the moment and if it carries on like this i'm sure there will be snow before you leave.

    As Selchie says: no need to worry about how we are treating Taffy- he's keeping well out of the way now you're not around to protect him.

    Hope you enjoy the rest of your time with your boys- tell them to get saving and they can come to see you next time around.

    Oh and take a packet of Birds Instant Custard back for Dawn- keep her going until we get there in March- she'll be able to have some on her xmas pud then.

    We know you would not desert us Welshgirl. Even on the other side of the world you show your loyalty to us all.

    We promise to be nice to Taffy ... just after we have a go at him for pulling Dawn from the chatroom and leaving us feeling deprived and wondering what 'dippy bread' is. (Got to blame someone.)

He's snowed under wi wok but he's gerrin his priorities sorted, I reckon Andy wonders what the hell he's took on wi me but I champion me boys and am noravin im tekkin em for granted. I rekon I freak im out a bit. Oh well, there y go, note new there then.
