  1. Hope things go smoothly for you Stavertongirl, a very stressful time! We used to move every 4 or 5 years when we were a lot younger, always searching for something bigger and better, but don’t think I could face the upheaval now.
  2. I’ve always been a big fan of Tina, initially when she was with Ike. I bragged for many years that I’d seen them at The Dungeon in the mid 60s but then found out that it was actually Charlie and Inez Foxx I’d seen! We didn’t see her perform live until 2000. This was meant to be her Farewell concert at the soon to be demolished Wembley Stadium. She of course couldn’t give up performing and in 2008 we saw her at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, we just HAD to be there, thinking that she wouldn’t ever perform in the UK again. A brilliant night but the seats weren’t the best as we bo
  3. Think Forest will need a goalie too. What about Pickford if Everton go down?!
  4. Yes CT, when we saw Albert at a meet-up last year he was struggling health-wise, bless him, such a lovely man.
  5. How worrying for you Nonna, we saw the terrible devastation caused by the floods while watching the news yesterday and we were hoping it wasn’t affecting you, you’re a bit further north than the worst flooding aren’t you? Fingers crossed that the rains cease soon and your beautiful part of the World enjoys a hot and dry Summer.
  6. I remember a day out at Duxford with our boys and two of their friends back in the 1990s. There was a Concorde on display, a bit of a carcass without seats and showing miles of electric wires. The kids loved it all but then, when we got back to my car, someone had totally blocked us in but luckily some strong men were on hand to lift the offending car out of the way!
  7. You’re obviously not mixing in the right circles any more Phil, my husband and kids have to get their DJs out of moth balls at least twice a year.
  8. You get yobbish football fans of every team, particularly when there happens to be two well-known teams in the same city but I really do think that Notts and Forest supporters generally respect each other. However, football supporters could learn much from the way Rugby Union fans conduct themselves at games.
  9. McArthur Glen at J28 on M1 is the best outlet locally, you can easily get there via Mansfield
  10. The exhibits have been moved around but George the Gorilla is still there!
  11. Went out for a superb Sunday lunch with our oldest friends to The Woodlark in Lambley, where we eat quite regularly and they never disappoint. Next month ‘The Lambley’ in the village is due to re-open, for the umpteenth time and hope the new owners will make a go of it. We were chucked out of there (twice!) several years ago, the landlord should never have been in the hospitality industry, both times we ended up in the car park wondering what the hell we’d said or done!!! Oh and it’s our 48th Wedding Anniversary today.
  12. Have an enjoyable visit @Gem, at least it looks to be a dry week down here. Don’t know of any ‘special events’ going on but Wollaton Hall has a temporary exhibition by sculptural artist Willard Wigan, miniatures assembled inside the eye of a needle. We haven’t been yet but intend to. Wollaton Hall is free to enter, apart from car park charges. Shame the City Council can’t give free entry into the Castle!
  13. Seems a steep fine plus 3 points but he was doing 25 in a 20 zone so 25% over speed limit. I’m glad, never liked the bloke anyway!
  14. Ah that’s really sad Margie, maybe it’s just an ‘off day’? Might it improve? Don’t suppose it helped when I sent you a totally black picture last night
