Hi Daff, Taff and all,
It seems all the nice threads get zapped, Carol's lovely Garden of Memories and my first Remember Me thread went with no explanation at all, and other nice threads since including your two Daff, and yes there have been threads that have been a million years long or so it seemed so no similarity there!
The problem is that gr will faff around the problem as always and give no proper explanation, hoping that in the end we will all get fed up and carry on as always. I don't think Joan ever got a satisfactory reply to the correspondence she had with gr over the irregularities with the membership fee variations. I certainly have never received a reply that I could think was ok , when I queried the costs.

Anyway, hope you are continuing to feel well, Daff and that you can do a bit of driving and all the stuff you have so badly missed, like maybe h*******k and things lol

Will hope this thread stays the course till you can do without it,
love and hugs

I have had a thought. (I have them occasionally). Perhaps we can re-do the thread from those who printed off the pages, but do only about 100 pages on each. Give each the title 'redoing Daffs zapped thread, pt 1' or something like that. See what happens to it. It would certainly show GR that we like to see it here.

Not sure how you would do them. Presumably scan and then cut & paste or some such thing.

Morning everyone

I am so sorry your thread for Daff was whooshed Taff, truly I am xxx

Oh Daff, I have been scrolling down, so pleased you are feeling a little better. Tis such a beautiful day here, the sun rising high in the sky, spreading and covering everything in its path, sunbeams dancing on my walls like a fairy doing ballet. xxx

The world outside is so quiet, just the sound of a few early birds twittering in the distance, Cherry and Apple blossom flowering and in full bloom in my garden, so pretty.

Just getting ready for my early morning walk, so lucky ... I have gorges near me turned into a nature reserve. Took Cass who is now just over one year old there the other day, oh it was lovely, truly it was. Such a hot Summer type day, Canada Geese zooming high into the sky, circling and squaking loudly to whizz down, skim the water of the lake and then zoom back high into the sky, repeating over and over again. There are lots of lakes there, with ducks swans and more, picnic tables, nature at its best.

Am so wishing you all such a good day and ... will be meeting so many of you very soon in Wales. o)))

Morning Daffers and everyone!

Bit overcast here and not too warm (Yet!!) I think we are supposed to have some sun later on but the chilly north breeze will not go away!.

Saga of the toilet continues! Engineer came at 6.15 straightend a pipe a bit and went at 6.30 pm Boy was I glad to see him, cos I had been sat with legs crossed since lunch time!

Went to the loo this morning (I shall spare you the full gory details) and guess what? blooming thing leaking again. Phoned Dynarod (we are now on first name terms) and awaiting a call from another Engineer!

Anyone know where I can get a catheter fitted at short notice?

Hope you have a good day, pottering around in the garden perhaps?

Take care

Bi for now

Right this mornings sermon to GR.From
Taff *



Dear Support team, I sent you a request yesterday morning, as for the reasoning behind why My thread"For our Daff" had been deleted, as many other did too. I am still awaiting a reply. I would like you to read this c&p from Daff herself *To Taff.... a huge bouquet, for starting the thread that has kept me sane over the last couple of months, and for all the love and concern you have shown me* . Now an explanation is not to much to ask for surely? I pay my subs for the use of message boards, as GR dont do any work themselves, its us members that do look ups, offer support and much more for eachother. Looking forward to your earliest reply in anticipation. regards, *************. AKA Taff

Good Morning Daff & Taff & Everyone

What a glorious morning it is here, the sun is burning away the clouds, lets hope it continues.
Obviously someone from the Welsh mountains has blown some sun rays this way - thank you for that lol

Have a lovely day, good luck Taff with Support, will be interested to see what they come back with - if anything!

Tina xx

Morning all.... hello Sallie and Clairejo, pleased to meet you both!

Huia, I think that is a pretty good idea, lol.... I know Susan with the numbers will be saying *I told you so* soon... she has been nagging me to use the thread in a sort of diary blog thingy..... so kept on at me to save save save, lol That is a similar idea.

BC... I do so love those *surprise* plantings... although my very first foray into gardening I discovered that I was nurturing and spoiling a dirty great huge weed... and one that seeds not even any pretty flowers for my effort, lol How is your pooch now? I do hope she is fully recovered.

Taff, I haven't had a reply, either, maybe tomorrow, hey? How's the head? lol I do hope you had fun getting the headache, though ;¬))

Jax... flogging???? I'm gonna need to keep an eye on you, lololol Please don't sit too close to Sue M and Mad Moo Claire at Swansea ;¬))

Morning Jac... I have a spare loo, but it's helluva way to come when the urge is upon you, lol. In one of my other houses, I think the neighbours thought me and the Dynarod man had a thing going on, he was parked outside my house so much and those vans are hardly discreet, are they? lol... turned out someone down the road was flushing her new twins' nappies down the loo.... and guess where they all ended up?? Thank goodness it wasn't octuplets!!!

~~~~~~ to Mau.... I am feeling really good... still get tired easily, but I can do more and more before getting tired... and if I do too much, I know it the next day and sleep for Britain! Gently gently.... I bought a whole load of plants a couple of days ago... I can manage to dig in a couple a day without huffing and puffing as though I'd run a marathon, lol... but sit down for an hour and I can do something else...

Liz.. I am actually looking forward to doing some right proper spring cleaning swearword, lol... R is brilliant, and he has been my rock... but is blind to cobwebs and dirty windows... and doesn't move furniture to clean behind unless I glare meaningfully at him, lolol Another few weeks and I'll be able to manage if I take it slowly!!

Hello Gwyn... how is J now? Send him our love. Hope all is well with you and D..... R is back in harness tomorrow..... it has been lovely having him home... but it'll be nice to have some *me* time, too, lol Oh... and I have been looking out for a woman by a wheelie bin in baggy sweater and trackie bottoms... but haven't found you yet, lol... they haven't *done* us yet, I'm hoping they'll wait until the front is looking tidier, lol!!

Morning Tina... did you get any sunshine after.... I did try wafting some across to you... it is beautifully sunny here today, as well....... what's it like there? Strange, you are only just across the channel, yet our weather is often so different.

Well, it's my mum's birthday today... I am off to give her a card and prezzie ... and fetch yet another loaf of home baked bread from my dad!! Oh, and get some goodies for R's sandwich box tomorrow, lol Bless him... shall I give him an apple for teacher, do you think? lol

See you all later

Love and ((((((hugs))))))

Morning Daff

Yes thank you the combined efforts of yourself and Taff have given us a beautiful morning.

I think its the Welsh mountains that have got something to do with it, I have been brought to to beleive, they also shelter us from bad weather like snow. (But I like snow). lol

Happy Birthday blessings for your Mum, wishing her an excellent day of pampering! lol

Take care

Thank you Carol... She'll be tickled pink!! I'll show her next time she is here... she is 76 today. And I'll get R a lovely big apple.... or maybe a selection of cakes and gateaux for his colleagues cos they have been so good!!
