  1. Hope you've had a lovely birthday x

  2. Happy birthday Esiotrot! Haven't seen you around for ages. I hope you'll drop in and visit us again soon. :)

  3. Happy birthday - hope you're well and that you have a good day. x

  4. Sadly Paula isn't around any longer. I suppose it's the nature of forums that some people who you expect to be around for ages gradually disappear. :)

  5. Yep pretty sure that English schools do A Levels and the Scottish equivilent are Highers - I did enjoy it but had to go back to my old high school and join the 17 year olds as there is no college here. I stupidly droppped out of school at 16 while doing my highers first time round so am pleased I did it.

    There are loads of new faces here - missing a few oldies though - does Paula (happyanddandy) still come on?

  6. Wow - you have been busy! Nothing new here - life still plods on LOL! We're all well though, which is good. I did A Level English (might be like a higher? Usually done aged 17/18 in years 12 and 13) a few years ago so I know what you mean about it killing reading for pleasure.

  7. Hi Janet -

    Thanks for the message, lovely to see an old friend - didnt think anyone would remember me so tried to sneak in!

    Been busy ~ added an extension to the house, got a puppy and been caring for my 89 year old Granny. Somewhere in the middle I went back to school and did my English and History highers - bit scary being twice the age of everyone else in my class. Reading for study sort of killed reading for pleasure and it took me ages to get back my mojo back.

    Anything new with you?

  8. Nice to see you around again. I hope life is treating you kindly. :)

  9. Clever done you going back to study....that would scare the pants of me....lo. New with me! Just getting older....lol. We had our silver wedding back in October and feel lucky to have lasted this long, given what you hear about other couples splitting up! Youngest will be sitting Standard grades next month and eldest nearly at the end of his 2nd and final year at college, with hopefully lookiing to go on to further studies at Uni for Sports Studies.
