  1. [quote user="Just Katie"]Where has my post gone? [/quote] Was that the post where you apologised for mocking me?[6]
  2. [quote user="Just Katie"]Yeah like dialling 999 'cos you trod on a pin.  Tresco, you do make me Roll On Floor Laughing Out Loud!![/quote] If you press the 'report' button you then get to send a message which arrives in a mysterious and yet magical place. The first moderator who comes on line will pick it up. What's so funny about that? I would blink at you if I didn't know you so well!!![:D]
  3. [quote user="Clair"]You can contact ther moderators from this page: http://www.completefrance.com/cs/forums/835451/ShowPost.aspx or by using the PM button on any of their posts. [/quote] My way is quicker.[6][:D]
  4. Hi Use the little 'report' button in the bottom right hand corner of your (or any other) post. Make it clear your'e not complaining about your (or any other) post.[;-)]
  5. Here is the link, Frederick : http://tinyurl.com/ypanby Oooh it's a biggie. I've reported it to the mods! (Changed to the link I used - Russethouse)
  6. [quote user="Matt C"].... 0 to tense in about 1 mile![/quote] I always thought it was fab, the rapid morphing from train to motorway, but that is such a snappy phrase I may have to adjust my feelings just to use it.[6][:D]
  7. [quote user="Just Katie"]Feeling a bit sensitive today girl?  Well I think that the advice you have given is sound.  People know me for being a bit strange.  I think they like that about me though.  I have been told it is an aquarian thing.[/quote] I think I am feeling a bit odd and I'm sorry I brought it into this thread![:D] I'm very wary of putting someone off doing a good/kind/sociable thing just vecause of my own  freaky anxieties. I would freak out if I thought people even might be uncomfortable/confused in my house, but my guess is that other people (who aren't weird hermits like me) pull these things off even if they break all the 'rules'. [:)]
  8. [quote user="Rose"]...ah... thanks Tresco... perhaps I need to do a bit more research... any other tips welcome... [8-)][/quote] Oh! Please don't be put off by what I've said Rose. I feel terrible now!
  9. [quote user="Edward"]... We did visit one Town, near where we once lived. Most of  the language we heard during the day was foreign, the indigenous people were  probably at work.  [/quote] Hello Edward[:)] Do you or your wife work here in France?
  10. Rose, in my limited experience people here eat certain things at certain times. They also drink certain drinks at certain times. What to us is 'a bit of a party' can confuse and bewilder people who don't understand what they're in for. I'm not saying don't do it, but try and let them know it may not be quite what they're used to? So, Katie this is the first public mention of your impending crowning as the LF Queen of Paris. See, I keep my eye on you.[:)]
  11. [quote user="sweet 17"]Anyone remember their first trip back and how they felt?  [/quote] I can remember it very well. My first trip back was also after having been here for 1 year, and like you I was nervous. I wasn't worried about the driving, but was worried that I wouldn't like England any more - that I might find it dull or crowded or dirty. Those concerns probably reflected the fact that I was going to visit cities, and I'd only spent a couple of days in big cities since coming here. As it turned out I thoroughly enjoyed being back in big cities again, but didn't enjoy the driving. I got used to it after about 5 minutes tootling around the airport car park, but over the next ten days I did far too much driving in my efforts to see as many people as possible. Now I don't hire a car, and have a great time bobbing around on public transport. Of course if you're going on a ferry/tunnel you'll have to take your car, and for some people public transport isn't suitable. Just be very wary, the same as you probably were when you first drove abroad. I still really enjoy going back, and I hope you enjoy your visit too.[:)]
  12. [quote user="FurryKnickers "]Evening rabbit features[:D] [/quote] Hello[:D]   I have to go. I can't re-live that Fire in the Rubber Toy Factory again. Please feel free to tell the sad tale though...[:-))]
  13. [quote user="LEO"]...my comment was serious and not in any way patronising .I was giving you a commendation! [/quote] LEO, remember the first rule of holes? [quote user="FurryKnickers "]...Speak for yourself Leo!...[/quote] Yay! I would definitely call Gays' husband a creep if he said something like that!
  14. [quote user="cassis"]Gawd, I love that magic wabbit!  [/quote] And I love that lithe little Sausage...but hang on. The Soss is dressed up as a teddy of some sort. I only recognised you by your boots.
  15. [quote user="cassis"]During cover of darkness chip out pavement or wherever where you plan to put the pot until you get to bare earth (remove hardcore from pavement etc. and replace with compost if necessary).  Knock the bottom out of a suitable pot and put it in place to cover hole in pavement.  Plant ivy.  The roots will go down into the earth. [/quote] That would work. Damn you, little Soss for casting me in an even worse light![;-)]
