I just wrote to Suzy that it did have a sign inside attesting to it’s authenticity and explaining how it got there. I meant to take a picture and didn’t and now I can’t remember except it saying it was “genuine”. It was also locked .
I have a friend here who is from the UK, and he brings antiques over and sells them. Like shipping containers full. I will have to ask him if he has a guilty hand in this, haha! He is in Portland though, so likely not.
How are you? Is your Spring shaping up to be lovely?? Does this mean your water is warming also and not as refreshing to you? Also, does your daughter swim? I’m a big believer in starting them very young with that. My folks were those that threw you in before you could walk and let you figure it out. None of us drowned so I guess it turned out ok!
Hope all is well! Speak soon!
Let me know if you get to that Workaway! What is it, and why does that particular one appeal? How exciting that we might get to meet one day! I have a good friend now that I met on here in 2008 (that's how long it's taken me to get sensible). This forum is amazing, in all sorts of ways.
Yes, I will be careful with the smoking thoughts - I love the idea of a wave in the rear view mirror . I really need to be on here more, I think - life is busy, but staying quit is really important !!
I've got the patches ready. Don't quite know when I'm going to make the switch - it scares me a bit - but I'm going to pick a week where I haven't got much on so I can curl up under a duvet and watch nature programmes (THE most therapeutic thing there is, in my opinion, especially if there's some chocolate involved too). So I do have a plan, of sorts.
You take care too, and speak soon. xx
Just saying hello really. Hope the water is cool and your daughter is funny, and that everything is going well. I'm still going strong (the odd wobbly thought when I don't get on here enough, but not too bad). Work has been busy, so I'm looking forward to that easing off a bit.
Talk soon I hope. xx
Thanks for your note. All is well thanks, just work has been super busy the past couple of week. Sounds like yours has been too. Hope you get some rest time.
I have indeed been enjoying some cool swims and my funny daughter, thanks for thinking of us. She’ll be 2 next month! I can hardly believe it.
How are you doing? How is your quit going? And how are things with your son? Really hope things have evened out a bit.
I had my vaccine on Friday - yippee! Feels such a relief. And we had a friend round for dinner this evening, it was lovely just to catch up and relax indoors. Fingers crossed we won’t have another lockdown any time soon.
Look forward to hearing your news :)

just wanted to check in and say hi <waves> I haven’t been on the forum much lately but I do think of you and wonder how you’re getting on. Hope all is well in your quit and you and Mike are enjoying time on your boat free of cigarettes and all that they entail! Also hope your son is doing well.
I finished making that horse for my friend’s daughter and I will try and figure out how to post a picture.
Hope you enjoy the unusually sunny bank holiday!
Take care and hopefully speak soon,
Quit 4th March 2017
Hehe thanks Anthony :)
How are you getting on?
Yes, good thanks, first day of winter here a mild morning start 6.7 degrees C, I am into my 11th day of my quit, and got through hell week unscathed. all in all feeling buoyant about my quit smoking future.
Funny to think you’re heading into winter and having cold weather. Summer seems to have finally arrived in the UK - about 25 C today!
Glad you are continuing to fight the nicotine addiction. Don’t look back (there’s nothing to see!)
