Uzzi, and all, I hope you all have a lovely time and I know you will be raising a glass to our Dizzi, that she is soon well enough to get home and back on here too.

I am really disappointed to have to miss the meet, I had tried to arrange to be with you but really haven't the energy to travel such a long way despite Wend's kind invitation to stay overnight. Thought I could have done a Dutch on you Uzzi but not to be.

Well done for all your hard work and hope things are easier for you soon

love to all

Awww Liz.

I would have so loved to have met you, but I do understand. Wend thank you for offering to put Liz up. Still as I look around ready to set off to Gatwick I know my work here is not finished so who knows maybe January I will be doing a return trip !

Doh. I can't come either.

There is more rain up there and OH was delayed on the train last night because of a landslip between Horsham and Dorking.

It made me realize that I should take my caring responsibilities seriously smetimes,novelty indeed!

Should we have a power cut I need to be here because we have a hospital bed and a hoist and mattress that all need power and it is a days work to convince the social services that their alternative suggestions just will not work.

Let's hope we can meet up again in January,if it is not snowing!

Oh the coffee worked then Uzzi lol

Really wished I could have surprised you to see if the look on your face was more shocked that when I surprised Dutch the first and second times lol

Glad you had a good time tho and it helped ease your way home.

I was picturing Wend singing that song as she swung round a lamppost :

Show me the way to go home
I'm tired and I want to go to bed
I had a little drink about an hour ago
And it went right to my head
Where ever I may roam
On land or sea or foam
You will always hear me singing this song
Show me the way to go home

(this is the posh version or translation lol)
Indicate the way to my abode
I'm fatigued and I want to retire
I had a spot of beverage sixty minutes ago
And it went right to my cerebellum
Where ever I may perambulate
On land, or sea or atmospheric vapor
You can always hear me crooning the melody
Indicate the way to my abode

AnninGlos Report 28 Nov 2012 12:03
