    My 20,000th post 10th Mar 18 at 2:26 PM
    Couldn't think of anything profound to say, so thought I'd put my 20,000 post here.

    Was told about this site by DH who used to listen to Martin on the radio. Was lured by the promise of a free gift of a picnic bag (given as a Xmas present to DH's Aunt ).


    My eldest child was 4 when I joined, he had his 18th birthday last weekend.

    Wow. Congratulations!

    I used to post on the now defunct NatWest forum and when I had made 1000 posts someone posted “1000 posts, bloody hell!”

    I would have said the same but it is bound to be redacted.

    Respect!
