Becs It was just the shock of reading all the threads. I'll be over my maudlin mood soon. Your right there is a lot of positivity about and its wonderful to have all these people pulling together for the relay. I'm excited about the Sahara - I'm almost ready, I've found my passport, getting my boots next week, don't think I will need much else ........ If you're taking your laptop I won't take mine. Jxx

Isn't there a song about Daisy? Something like - .......Daisy, Daisy, give us an answer do.... (that's all I can remember) Jxx

Julia - Be as upset as you wish... but be warned... I was and then I imagined a severely unimpressed Gaynor kicking my a*** and it soon stopped! Daisy - Who's going to mother me if you're not there?? Yes Diana will be there but she'll be busy 'auntying' me! Who's going to stop me from trying to seduce some (read any) of the men?? Love Becx

Pictiuret he scene... we drive Daisy to Heathrow.. for a 'nice day out' to say goodbye to us all... She says 'I aint gettin on no plane, fool'. We slip something in her drink... next thing she knows, she's in Morocco. Think it would work ? ps. not attempting to imply any similarity between Daisy and Mr T lol


Yvette Report 15 Apr 2005 19:49

OH HELP PPLEASE Been out today looking for boots and what can I say - it's all in me head and not on me feet!! I didn't realise how many sorts of boots there were. Went to a proper outdoor place and the chap there lost me within the first 1/2 hour. Leather, Nubuck, those gortex looking things - oh gawd. So please could someone list what I need to look for in the boots (besides comfort). I've got to get me boots for walking in the desert with a whole bunch of mates and don't want to let them down. Jxx
