One of my sons in law sent a text message to my landline, wishing me a 'Happy mother in law' day.
:-D Very sweet of him.
Anyone who has received one, knows the number it's come from is quoted at the start.
I don't know their mobile numbers off by heart, so don't know which one it was.
I'll have to hear it again, with pen & paper poised. :-S

Nice idea tho Maggie, shame the name wasn't given.

I hate getting texts on my mobile with no signature, our neighbours sent one when we were away about a strange car on the drive, we had said another neighbour could use it while we were away and forgot to mention it to next door, and they didn't recognise the car altho it usually stands only a short distance from their window!

Had to text back and ask who they were as their message wasn't clear. I always sign my texts altho sometimes forget and put the kiss on the end when it isn't appropriate lol
