Can't believe it' I never go away for weekends but I'm going to Wales Fri 28th while Mon 1st for a family get together. Trouble is I've got the whole week off so I bet I don't get much else done on my return! Debby

I was hoping that once it comes online you Brits are all going to go to bed nice and early and give us Canadians a chance at it! Margaret


Ang Report 18 Apr 2006 18:33

I have just announced to my family that the 1841 census will be released soon & that I will have lots to do etc. My announcment has been met with a lot of strange bewildered looks! Its good that everyone on here understands the importance of everything else being put on hold when this release arrives!


Heather Report 18 Apr 2006 18:44

Well Glen, you can be appointed convener. I think if everyone goes to the highest point in their district and starts building a bonfire right now it would be a good idea. Please ensure you have a supply of white candles to watch flickering as you hug yourself in your duvets.


Heather Report 18 Apr 2006 18:55

Carrie and Penny, cancel the holiday Brenda, maybe not a coincidence? Pat, tell mum youve made a mistake, you will do her birthday on her offical one the week after Sunny, tell the neice you know he has been cheating on her Kat, become an OPC Debbie tell the family you have an infectious disease Linda and Whiskas you can take alternate shifts Annie 'supposed to be' is the operative phrase Glen put your sign up (anywhere!) Jess, do you really need an excuse? Margaret, did you really think you could beat British grit???? Our parents sat through the blitz we can do this on our heads. Ang tell them that if you dont sit there all weekend then you may fail the open university degree you have been secretly completing to surprise them all. NOW JUST LETS HOPE IT HAPPENS, EH????


Merry Report 18 Apr 2006 19:49

Well we will know who to speak to if it doesn't!!! Merry

Count me in for a shift!! (Try stopping me lol!). I'm so excited I'm not going to be able to sleep now !! I just know that it won't provide all the answers we are looking for, but at least we'll enjoy trying. Margaret


Linda Report 18 Apr 2006 19:59

Got the Grandsons staying on 29th, so depends on how often I get woken up, I could possibly do some time during the night. Baby, if he wakes up, usually around 3.00 a.m. Linda

Oh gawd I've got to drag a pile of wood all the way up to the top of the Cheviots now. How come Heather always gives me the good jobs!! Glen


Merry Report 18 Apr 2006 20:05

Glen.....because you said someone should tip off Heather's hubby!! Shall I do the late shift? I have been trying to find my thread where I was the first to notice the 1861, but I can't find it!! Merry
