What's on your mind?
gekko: My other half is Scottish - hoping I can claim citizenship through marriage. I'll even watch Braveheart and laugh at Billy Connelly's jokes. Jun 26, 2016 11:28:26 GMT
Martin: You are all welcome :D And there's no need to watch Braveheart......season one of Outlander on Amazon will suffice ;) Jun 26, 2016 12:48:43 GMT *
rthef: The vote-result maps provide a very useful reference for areas you might want/not want to move to (one way or the other). Jun 27, 2016 3:31:10 GMT
walkingdecay: Kind of rthef - but I couldn't move to London again. And I'm keeping up with Season 2 of Outlander, so I already have credits towards the Scottish citizenshp test. Jun 27, 2016 7:39:26 GMT
Martin: Beyonce concert in Glasgow tonight...dunno what's worse...having to go, or acting as the taxi and trying to fight my way through traffic to drop the girls off and pick them up later :ell: Jul 7, 2016 8:42:40 GMT
007: Having to go very much worse than taxiing Jul 7, 2016 16:05:13 GMT
Martin: It went quite well actually, and the two of us oldies managed to sneak away for a nice steak while we waited for the kiddies :smug: Jul 8, 2016 3:00:16 GMT
ocarolan: I hope you had one each... Jul 8, 2016 6:19:00 GMT
Martin: Well, I had a huge T-Bone to myself, while Mrs M had to be content with a green salad and some olives. I'm not made of money, you know ::) Jul 8, 2016 7:11:23 GMT
ocarolan: Never could understand the fascination with eating weeds. You made the right choice, . Yum! Jul 8, 2016 7:39:21 GMT
walkingdecay: Life is all teenagers, gardens and house maintenance at present. Back soon. (Never realised that South Park was a documentary.) Aug 3, 2016 2:39:12 GMT
Martin: Sounds like fun, Pete :ell: :D South Park? I never really got that, with the exception of the World of Warcraft episode, which I've watched repeatedly (rofl) Aug 3, 2016 6:27:38 GMT
gekko: I loved South Park. The Britney Spears episode was a classic. Aug 4, 2016 3:06:59 GMT
walkingdecay: The World Of Warcraft episode plays out in our house practically every day. I can't begrudge them that though. They all go off to their universities next month, and their friendships may well change as a result. Aug 5, 2016 10:43:51 GMT
Martin: PS4 Slim or PS4 Pro? :-/ Sept 7, 2016 17:00:40 GMT
gekko: Don't think I'll get away with buying either just yet as I only bought an original PS4 a year ago. Sept 9, 2016 2:45:47 GMT
Martin: You could sell it, and it would only cost maybe £100 at the most to upgrade....GAME are doing a deal for £129 when you trade in your PS4 for the new Slim... :evilsmile: Sept 9, 2016 6:54:47 GMT
Phil Taylor: rainin a bit here to say the least :windy: Sept 13, 2016 13:17:51 GMT
ocarolan: ...and thunder. All gone now though. Just hot and humid. :phew: Sept 13, 2016 15:42:44 GMT
leoroberts: I've written an unfunny song! Yay! Sept 16, 2016 5:02:41 GMT
