    Well, Mr Teazy your command of all languages is well above average.

    I expected Moti to point out that the only way is Essex.

    I could only find pre-launched carrots at Tesco extra and NO cabbages. I think there must have been a cabbage run in these parts, could be the sea air. I found a sweet - tart cabbage in Sainsbury's extra - the last one.

    Dinner is almost ready - so maybe Laterers

    I used to strut my stuff in TOTS at Sarfend, a few cinzano and lemonades or Pernod and black and then hobble home barefoot because of stiletto blisters. If I could turn back time. ( ooh song about that too)

    Heh, lurvin the memories folks.
    Dancin' around bags wasn't just Essex, I assure ya - Tips is right.
    They was doin' that in Notts/south Yorks too.

    White socks - yers, I remembers themz - around the same time as string vest-type t-shirts were they not?
    Anyone wanna guess who turned out like a chess board more than once after a sesh in the sun wiv one of them on?


    No nee-naw sounds here on the Lincs coast, Mrs Motivated.
    Lincolnshire don't have police.
    Well not many - our new stayshun cost over a million squids just a very foo years ago and has no policepersons in it unless you makes an appointment (?) - and yes, that is seriously just for once on here.

    Well, the stork ain't beed yet.
    No further on at all ack shoe alley.
    I'm hopin' it doesn't until after oi gits noo tyres Tuesday mornins.
    Is that bein' 'opeful?


    So sorry all, but I is still hereabouts.

    Sarfend I want to back and visit this year. There used to be a good market at Pitsea.
    I did go back and visit Chelmsford last year, it was SO different.
    Those stilettoes gave me corns. Still better than falling off me platforms.Barf

    Just seen your post LUN - It is all a waiting game, but also VERY exciting.
    Methinks a girl.

    Barf time now.

    When you think about it there were no mobiles and the times my mum waited up all night because I decided not to come home until the sun was up. I couldn't see why she was at me. If my kids did that to me I would've had a coronary .

    That stork needs to finish his tea break and get this liitlun delivered.

    Tips, it is indeed supposed to be a girl - the name is chosen and everyfink!
    The family on Mrs Lun's side are always a week or so late, it seems.
    Strangely enough, I did read somewhere that only 7% are born on their due date.

    Cheesecloth shirts yup - and seersucker.
    Human League and Duran Duran.
    I might put moozik on ............. nah, clothes are a better fit.
