Actually, you can't see the picture very well as an avatar so I'll revert to previous and you can see the picture by making me a friend and it'll be there in my images.
Going to need a few hours to find my way around on here but it seems to be working better than the last new forum.
Three cheers for the techies! You can come out from under the stairs now - be careful the bright daylight doesn't hurt your unaccustomed eyes! 🙂
Helloooo! I've found it! Been out for the day and sooo glad to have Benchland back. I've been in withdrawal, and it's only been 3 days!
We were at a local (ish) Severn Trent Water reservoir and there was a leaflet with this on (let's see if we can still put pictures in!):
Ah it appears not "message cannot exceed 20,000 characters" It was a camel wearing a turtle neck jumper and a cardigan!! Lol I'll change my avatar so you can see it.
Made me think of you lot, especially Ali. I know what my next knitting project will be: camel jumpers! 🙂
Is it Hump practising for his very important role at the wedding??
Oh me, oh my, am soooooooooooooo excited Chief Bridesmaid, yahoo be dooby/booby!!!
It's going to be glorious xx
How do you insert smiley faces??? xx
Delia says to thank you for your help with wedding arrangements!
Katy is Chief Bridesmaid & Dink is also a bridesmaid. Hump will be the Ringbearer.
Ali - if you go to 'thread options' you can choose which way up the post appear... well newest at the top or the bottom, not rakish angles, obviously. Have a play with the settings.
WOo Hoo! We're back! Thanks Tech Team... Glitterbury juice to go with the calorie free cakes....
A wedding for RevCat and I to share! Such bliss! (theirs or ours?!)
Not had time to look properly at the new site, but I found Benchland in the search, so that's great, and I've managed to read the latest posts, to that's great.... and I;ve had a large glass of wine, on not a lot of sleep this week, which may NOT be great... especially as I'm going to Pilates in a mo... oh dear... the class is on the ball... I might NOT be on the ball!
Is there a spell check somewhere?
Hi again all,
Apologies for the temporary disruption - I hope you've found your way back to BENCHLAND safe and sound!
Thanks for your patience while we work through these glitches - calorie-free treats are most welcome 🙂
Thank you Techie people for transmatting us to the correct board and then sorting out the time warp! Lots of calorie free goodies in the tardis fridge for you and the mods. Really hope you are all going out for a nice celebration after all the hard work.
Hope all Benchies are well and find their way back along diverse paths.
Had to pop out for a short while, came back and lost Benchland, had to start all over again, have bookmarked so all should be ok now!!
Oh Revcat, perhaps you should give them a phone and explain the circumstances, nullgravy and all that so that you can have a the option of a general. Fingers crossed, ouchy ouch!!
Wedding is official, invitations out woo hoo!!
Can I please, please, please be a bridesmaid???? Failing that a flowergirl???
Crinoline, knee highs, tiaras and bobble hats what do you think??
Or something different all together xx
We're delighted you've found us. Unfortunately, we've just spotted that there are two 'Living with' boards, so we're going to merge them both.
The new merged board will sit in the correct location: Living With and Beyond Breast Cancer.
Apologies for the inconvenience, we'll have this moved in a jiffy!
Phew! Finally found Benchland! I don't fancy the idea of local anaesthetic, Revcat!
The honour of your noble presence is requested
at the marriage of Delia, fair daughter of Cath & Guy Sparkle
to her betrothed Milton, son of Ethel & Quentin De Witt
at the Luxury Wedding Marquee (near The Lost Plottery Shed)
in the Shire of Benchland, on the 24th day of August,
in the year of our Lord Two Thousand and Thirteen
and afterward, for MUCH feasting and merriment down at The Lagoon (watch out for alligators!)
RSVP: Delia's Mum, somewhere in the Shire of Benchland.
Revcat & GIJane to officiate.
Songs, jokes, poems appreciated .... SOooo much to organize!! M.
Thank you Techies - you have worked very, very hard and I think it looks pretty good so far.
So everyone has morphed into a van by default! Don't seem to be able to upload a photo for my avatar as yet, but will wait and see how things go - mods and techies have better things to worry about just now.
Do have a play with your personal settings - I think they will make life easier once you have them to your liking.
For any Benchies not in the know, I have an urgent referral to a 'one stop' gynae clinic for next Wednesday (28th) which claims that you leave with a diagnosis/treatment plan. In the stuff about hysteroscopy it says "Local anaesthetic is given into the neck of the womb, just like at the dentist." Not sure I want to go THAT dentist.... open wide takes on a whole new meaning!! Eyes water.
Hello ben, think it will take a while to get used to................at least we found Benchland woo hoo !! xx
Miss Sparkle, please do me the honour - oh, she already has!! I am a changed man
I thought love was only true in fairytales la,la,la,la....
Love was out to get me la,la,la,la...
