    That sounds good, have you moved to your new place yet,if so best of luck in your new home.
    As we live in a village, things are a bit slow.

    Hi izzzi and zola.

    Well "Who Are They" appears to have finally run its course. You both have put a lot of work
    and effort into keeping it alive and for that I really want to shout out "Thank You So Much".
    When I came back on board after you both kindly took over, I failed to say so in a diplomatic manner which,
    I'm certain, put a lot of members off. It's only a game, not at all important, but the lack of interest is my fault.

    Unfortunately I'm still unable to devote the time as before.
    It's up to Admin now to decide whether or not to leave the thread as it is.

    Thank you both again.
    And a big thank you also to all members who eagerly posted in their "Guess".

    See you around the Boards.
    Best wishes.
    willie.

    Ooops,udityar, I overlooked your post.

    Actually, I'm not quite sure what you mean.
    But no harm in saying "thank you anyway". :)

    Cheers.

    willie.

    Thanks again @WeeWillie , I think the game has run its coarse, and now that the weather has turned for the better I am up to my eyes getting my latest classic car accomplishment up to date which is rather difficult at this stage.
    I also noticed that the game came up with many repeat pictures which was a good indication the the game was becoming to its final journey.
    I also give a special thanks to you, @zolabud , @Opalshards and all other members for giving me what is the greatest medicine of all.
    [​IMG]Lots of fun and laughter.

    :) Hi Zola. Been missing you. I am sorry you are having health problems. Hopefully it will get better with some warmer weather. I wish this thread could be resurrected , but its hard finding new faces.

    Seeing as someone asked about my move I shall share my good fortune on here. I don't do Facebook anymore as I just got bored with it so apart from my immediate family and a couple of friends no one knows I have moved...

    I got my long awaited PIP and an enhancement on my ESA and my various doctors letters got my an A banding on my council house move.
    I lived in a 3rd floor flat which I loved but I had become a 'Vampire Hermit' as I never went out and I was up all night. I would catnap during the day and this life although not 'normal' suited me just fine.
    I was offered a bungalow where I live and I loved the look of it. Google mapped it and saw it had a South facing garden and although it was undecorated and had no kitchen and the garden was a jungle I took it on the spot.
    I found it hard to pack up as I have lung disease and tire easily but I got it all done and moved in on the 23rd of January.
    The carpet fitters should have been there on the 22nd January but they couldn't lay it for a month as they didn't have the carpet I picked. So for the first month the heating was on constantly but it didn't make a lot of difference
    Found out later that it had very sparce insulation. That was sorted last Friday.... Carpet fitters laid my favourite blood red carpets throughout.

    When I turned up on the 23rd the kitchen had been finished and it was BEAUTIFUL. It had been painted magnolia throughout and all the shrubs in the garden has been trimmed and the lawn had been cut.

    My energy is slowly coming back. I have lost 1st 2lbs. My blood sugar is levelled and I am now on 2 Metformin per day, My glucose levels are always 7,2 after meals, I have a South facing garden which I enjoy sitting in but having been a gardener all my working life I find it hard to accept that I find gardening so difficult, I also have problems with both my knees which means I find it impossible to get on my hands and knees and work in my garden. I hired a gardener who turned out to be someone I first knew in Primary school and he has sorted my back garden (now a toilet for the local cats. Any ideas please share...) and my front garden is now turfed.
    I went to Homebase yesterday with my Mum and bought a 30ft hose on a reel and all the connectors and a gun thing for spraying and got so excited. When I got back nothing worked. The connector kept shooting off and soaked my kitchen floor... So I jumped in a taxi and took it all back to Homebase.

    When I got back i must have gone out 30 times with watering cans to water my front garden..... I was bushed by the end, Got to do it all again tonight....

    Anyway. I am happier now than I have been in 10 years. I moved to my old flat in December 2006.

    I tell myself that if I wasn't so ill I wouldn't have finally got PIP and I certainly wouldn't have got my lovely new bungalow.....

    Still miss this thread....
