I'm still here.....

Hello everyone.
Thought I'd stick my head in and say hello as I haven't been around for some time. Had a weird year...you know, (oh i swore !) happening...life.

Anyways, hello and you better not have been talking about me! (Although secretly I hope you have. )

G :wink:

Thanks matey. Like I said, been a (oh i swore !) year (long story) but I thought it was time to get back in touch.

And no way am I going to read a year's worth of old posts, so for anyone who was asking for font IDs.....Brush Script or Times should do the trick! :D

Heyup Harry.

I was particularly annoyed to miss SignUK, especially as Shaney was going to be there. Never mind. Stuff happens.

So, how's business? I've been mental busy all year. Credit crunch? My ( oh i swore )!

Glad to see your mug again.

Shoulda said I miss your mug and your glass!
I'll take a good snog any time.
Heck, I would probably accept a bad one.

You could have joined Lynn, Peter, and myself when we had a drink on old Jack at the Boat Inn!

Well, Lorraine, I was so jetlagged that I didn't know stem from stern.
But I am guessing it was about 10am?
And I must add that Lynn and Peter were the most gracious hosts and friends.
I am homesick for them and their dogs.
:D
When Peter took me to Heathrow he was so kind, he took me right where I needed to be and I bawled like a baby starting 15 minutes before we got there.

Hi Andy, great to see you back here mate, was it something we said ?

Really sorry not to see you on my flying visit though buddy.

You'll be happy to know I was well looked after though, even though I had very little spending money :oops: , everyone there was so generous....

You missed a great time at the restaurant too mate.... but George kept us on our toes for ya.

As for Peter (and Lynn).... absolute softies.... he didn't cry when I left though.... he seemed rather happy actually :o
