Errol - We Geordies welcome all foreigners and passports are not essential at this present moment but we would expect you to learn our language for communication purposes. ;-)

Merlin - I have half a ball of Aran wool (sorry Errol) could she make me half a dozen warmers. ;-)

What a shame Wend, after all that hard work.
Oh, and art-noon

Do you have to hide shallots?
I thought they were a sort of knee length trouser type garment thingy popular with young and stylish ladies of the 80s

Art-noon all :-)

A bit too big, I seem to remember Errol - he had to send them back.

No, but wear a bullet-proof vest Errol, or they'll have you for tea in no time.

Island, I spotted your hidden shallot straight away.

Island apologies - I shall accept a slapped wrist.

Merlin did they fit?

GP I think I should move to Geordieland to escape this interminably tedious weather. Do I need a passport?

GeordiePride Report 22 Mar 2013 14:40

Errol - I heard the groans in Geordieland and they are keeping the snow away. Haven't seen one little flake today but its cold.
