I am always a bit down at this time of year and my lovely friend has always known this.
I got this text from her this morning and apologise if you have already heard it.

If luck is a raindrop I'd send you a shower

If hope is a minute I'd send you an hour

If happiness is a leaf I'd send you a tree

And if you need a FRIEND you will always have ME xx

:-D :-D :-D

We all need a smile and a nice thought at this time of year.

And I have loved my quick glance at this thread. So nice and I can see how much it has meant to you, Barbs :-) :-)

Budgie Rustler Report 9 Dec 2012 13:36

Barbs I reckon Foggy or Merlin "might" just want to hold the ladder whilst you climb up, especially if you have your Santa costume on. :-D :-D :-D


Merlin Report 9 Dec 2012 13:43

She,d be safe with me holding the ladder, I,ve got Reactolite Glasses so anything bright would be screened out. :-D :-D :-D :-D ;-) Meybe. ;-)
