    So pleased the holiday (and the smuggling!) went well. More pleased that the two of you have found happiness with each other.

    After all the trauma and upset you have gone through this last year or so im pleased you have had a wonderful holiday and you have someone to share things with

    I'm home!

    But on a serious note, if a lady has not 'dated' for a while the whole game has totally changed. In my day, on the second date you could kiss and no rude bits until you got to know each other very well (6 months in my case), and we did not know about the infection diseases. Nowadays people sleep with their friends, or people they have just met (god I sound really really old)

    So Ladyshopper... no kissing, no rude bits and if you do rude bits... make sure you have been to the chemist before....

    Only joking, enjoy life to the full

    I have indeed. Think I will just get it in S, saves getting fillers.

    Lovely to see LS so happy. The bloke obviously liked the look of her rum runners
