Hi everyone, This section of the forum is a little different to the others, as you may have noticed in looking around the threads. Elsewhere on the forums, we discuss some pretty heavy topics: mental health issues, thoughts of suicide, trauma, abuse, relationship breakdowns. Here is the place to come to get away from that and have a bit of fun. Distraction can be an important tool to draw on if you're finding yourself overwhelmed by distressing thoughts and feelings. As this is a section for respite from difficult topics, we will remove posts made in this section that attempt to discuss personal issues. Please use a support thread in the appropriate section for these discussions. Happy posting!

Hello! one of my favourite word games is where you are given five letters and you need to make a sentence from it, making one word that starts with each letter, in that order. The sentence can be as correct or quirky as you wish, don't worry about grammar! It can be serious, silly or ludicrous. You then leave five letters for another person. These five letters can be a five letter word or just five random letters, anything goes. It often helps not to think about it too much or it starts to get hard! For example: S T A R T somehow the amazon re-forrested tremendously or, G H J K L giant hairy jovial kangaroos laugh or, M F H B E microscopic follicles harmlessly brew elixirs and here is one for you to try.... P A P E R (and then leave a new set of five letters for the next person) Enjoy! Christina

Hi all I know a while back there was a thread with some jokes on it - just to try and lighten the load for folk and to provide a few jolly japes and spiffy spifferoons (those words etched in my memory bank from the late and great Kenny Everitt). However, I was far to lazy to try and find the other thread, so thought I'd start up a new one WJW. Here we go people, something to start you off with: "When I was a small boy, I had a dog named Tax. I'd open the door and "Income Tax"" "That very same year, I had a bird called Enza. I'd open the window and "Influenza" Now, they can't be done on any other day - for it is after all, Worst Joke Wednesday. See if you can beat either of those?

I couldn't think of a more creative name for this thread so I kept it simple. I love coming across quotes that make me feel good or make me think about a situation in a different light. I have a "little book of confidence" that I used to carry in my handbag for when i needed it and I have a few other little books with quotes that I reflect on now and then I thought it would be good to share some and encourage others to do the same. For starters I have: If you want to know someone's mind, listen to their words. If you want to know their heart, watch their actions. People are not addicted to alcohol or drugs, they are addicted to escaping reality. cmf x

Hi all, I've had a thought - as this is the fun area of the forum, so for those who want something a little different to do, try this. Someone posts a word, then it simply flows on from that. Example: Sun; next person may put "Shine", then next "Bright", then next "Clever", then next "smart", then next "dresser", then the next "fashion", then next "suit", next "tie", "rope", etc etc. I’m having too much fun here by myself. Time to introduce the community into this. So I will simply start with the first word and I deem that word to be Christmas. Let’s see where it goes from there – remember in the tradition of the rules of the site, we need to keep all words in a clean and friendly format. Let’s go people: Christmas
