Tips and Quick Questions on “How To Start Being Old Style”



  • Hello Mummybrook! :waves: I agree with savingqueen and Lilyplonk, perhaps have a trawls through some of the previous threads and see what interests you. A gentle way to start if you;re not too sure of yourself on posting might be just to say a quick thank you to someone whos tips you have read and think would be useful to you. I flit about in various forums and I have to say that the Old Style thread is one of the warmest and friendliest out there. Not to mention that I've picked up a fair few tips and even learned to crochet as a result! :D
    Everyone has a dark side... apparently mine is called Harold?!? :huh:

    Welcome to the friendliest board on MSE, Mummybrook.

    Just press your "thanks" button if someone has posted something you find useful, and hop right in with your own contributions.

    The Daily OS thread is very welcoming if friendship and encouragement are what you need; hope to see you there, maybe?:o
    If your dog thinks you're the best, don't seek a second opinion.;)
