      Hey, sorry I haven't replied to this, been really busy and haven't been able to go on the forum! I think it doesn't matter how old you are age is a number! However 35 still scares me, even after a few weeks of my birthday!

      James is right. The older you are, the faster it goes! Just wait 30 years. lol

      Thanks Chrissy, it was alot of fun last night. My spanish friends hadn't got a clue what was going on and some of the jokes with double entendres passed her by completely. She asked me to explain some of them and it was impossible as the were quite naughty!

      Athena

  14. I'm excited about the start of a new series of 'Dr Who' tonight. I need to get out more......

    1. Ben

      Ben

      Must mean I do too because I was really excited as well.

  15. will probably never get asked to compile a pub quiz again

    1. Ooshie

      Ooshie

      I had that experience too, karen; it had seemed such a good quiz when I compiled it, but when they read out the questions...:D

    2. karen.d

      karen.d

      Yeah I never realised how hard it would be to try and combine difficult questions with more easier ones. Not everything you know, everyone else might! At least I won't probably be asked to do the quiz again, which is all right with me, I prefer to answer the questions, not compile them.

    3. Ooshie

      Ooshie

      Yes, I stuck to answering rather than compiling after that! :)

  16. Happy World Book Day!

    1. Athena

      Athena

      Happy World Book Day to you too!

  17. is not getting much sleep this week. Going out 4 nights in a row this week. I can't cope in my old age....

  18. I have been trying to write a pub quiz all weekend. I didn't know it would be so difficult!

  19. Have lost my voice :-(

      Is it back yet.

    4. karen.d

      karen.d

      Thanks everyone, been in bed all weekend with a horrible cold :-( Thank goodness for the Kindle. Although 'Les Miserables' is probably not the best read to cheer you up if you're ill. My voice is now back though more or less.

  20. is thoroughly bored with 'The Casual Vacancy' by J.K Rowling. Surely she can't abandon a novel so soon into the new year?!

      Well that's convinced me, I've ditched 'The Casual Vacancy' for something else!

    3. Inver

      Inver

      I saw on Goodreads you gave it 1 star...oh dear

    4. karen.d

      karen.d

      yeah....not good!

       

  21. I saw 'Les Miserables' last night and loved it, but since when did French people have Cockney accents?!

    1. risingdawn

      risingdawn

      The cinema version?

      I read somewhere that Cameron Mackintosh got the idea for the musical whilst watching Lionel Bart's "Oliver" - so maybe that's why? :)

    3. karen.d

      karen.d

      yes the film. Everyone had a pretty standard accent, but some of the characters did sound like they were in 'Oliver'! I know it isn't supposed to be realistic, but I just found that a bit odd!

  22. is one year old than she was yesterday :-p

      Happy Birthday! And strictly speaking, you're only a day older than yesterday - if that makes you feel better.

      Thanks Ian I do feel better. I'm just going to lie about my age from now on anyway:-p

      Thanks Poppy!
