Very true TeresaW.

Many comments can easily be misconstrued by others, so an appropriate emoticon could help alleviate potential problems.

One rolling around laughing would be good, there are some comments worthy of more than a cheeky grin :-D

Agree with red face (embarrassed)
A green face (feeling sick)
Crying face
and total shock or Eek!!
All of the above better convey the tone of a post when needed.

There are some really good ones around.

There is one with a nightcap....(as in hat not drink!). Could be useful for those of our friends who live overseas. In fact, it could work both ways because we are overseas to them :-D

And an eek, please. Thank you. :)

Also an emoticon with rolling eyes please. It's one I would use frequently!

A lot of eye rollers on here :-D

Thanks. Cx

Please can we have a sad face and an embarrassed (blushing) face please

I'm sure these will be a welcome addition to your icons, and are commonly used on other sites :-)
