    Was so "upset" at a certain "lady" (?) implying that I'm ancient that I forgot to post what I'd been intending to.

    Anyway, was happy to see the postie today. She gave me a Minions cap, a box of Carrot and apple muesli, and best of all, a cheque for 100 from a That's Life mag comp posted by Fire**fly.

    Off to update.

    Should I be worried that I'll be turning 40 soon? or maybe I can be a permanent 39

    Tis funny in one way, but in another it's not, as the vunerable genuinely think they are helping to find a lost person.

    I am sure she thought she was helping, maybe she did see the video

    I remember a convo in here a few years ago where my youngest son wouldn't talk about sex because his Grandma was here, and I said even Grandma used to do the do or else you wouldn't be here, I never saw a kid go so red, No Mam, No Mam, she didn't that is TMI

    It wasn't actually to find a missing bloke... if Nana had read it properly it said they wanted to find this bloke because he was watching people while getting his **** out lol

    I don't know why folks even share things like that, for others to mock/laugh at ect.

    If you have proof go straight to the police, too much stuff shared on FB
