  2. you'r right when first married used to have draped net with frills and tie backs, the only thing was it would take me any thing from 15mins to 1 hour getting all the pleats and frill's even. Then I would stand back and tell myself what a good job i had done,
  3. Looks a bit on the quite side, dead centre of Nottingham. Or maybe just a little out side of Nottingham.
  4. nonnaB if ever you do come back to the UK don't go to live in Linc's we lived over there, for a while, and went through 1/2 kettles a month, scum floated on top of you coffee/tea, and when you tried to dry your self, on a towel it felt just like sand-paper.
  5. one of my favourite hymns when i was younger was "Onward Christian Soldiers" When it was my dads funeral and because he used to be a pub singer has our friends/family went into church we gave them each a white handkerchief what is this for they ask? "just wait and see." was my reply So when the song Goodbye, Goodbye, I wish you all the luck Goodbye, was played we told in fact no-one needed telling they all stood up and waved their handkerchief. What a lovely end for a pub singer.
  6. Welcome kj792 to our friendly site, I sure that most of in the us UK watched the bush fires in Aus. I take my hat off to you, none of us have any idea what it must be like, it's ok watching on tv but you are there. Visited Aus twice must admit if I was 4??? years younger I would be there instead of the UK. Yes you do get fires, high temp's but what a life, sorry to hear about your golf course, why not try green bowling opps sorry if you can'r get on the golf course no chance of getting on a bowling green. Any way a big welcome looking forward to your post's.
