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, I thought I would start this thread, about our pets. I have read in the forums a lot of us has a pet or pets of some kind. Be it a dog, cat, bird, rabbit, guinie pig, tortoise, snake, lizard etc: they bring joy to our lives, they are there for us giving us unconditional love. I thought a it would be nice if we could share our pets antics, or if you've seen other animals, doing things that have made you laugh. They can be funny, loving, outrageous, anything that your pet does or does not do that puts a smile on your face and might put a smile on someone's face that is struggling. Please keep the stories light hearted and happy, We all love our pets, let's let others enjoy them as well.. I will go first to get it up and running. I have two little dogs, Maltese x Yorkshire x Aussie Terriers, I have Mum (4 years old) and Daughter (2years old). My dogs have the run of the house, my back screen door after many attempts and lots of failures I put a doggie dog into it. I love theses two they are my fur family. My story is about another dog I had many years ago, I called him boof he was a Belgium Shepard, I was sitting at my kitchen table one day just looking out my back door (creedance). Boof was just relaxing in the shade with my young son. It was a hot day and I thought I might take my young son into the pool. I was about to go outside when all of a sudden a cat ran across our yard, well Boof just took off after the cat yep my young son took off after Boof, then Boof it looked like his brakes stopped working, he was chasing the cat then I saw him slide (son still chasing him). he couldnt stop, he slid into the swimming pool with such force he bent the tin frame nearly flat to the inside of the pool, well a waterfall began, Boof was on the other side of the pool he crashed straight through it, my son ended up slipping on the water skidded to the other end of the pool, crashing and landing on Boofy scream of laughter was coming from my son, absolutely soaked to the skin covered in mud, Boof was trying to get up, slipping all over the place from the mud as well I think he was seeing stars from his hard hit, he couldn't get up. I couldn't stop laughing at the pair of them. They looked so funny covered in mud, the pool was later repaired. Son and dog was hosed off so it all ended well Do you have a pet story to tell? Kind thoughts Grandy.

Given no one is above me, I'll just give myself a random compliment. ^^^ is fantastic at terrible dad jokes.

Hi everyone Was just wondering how you could get your own space without moving to own place before being financially ready. At moment am staying in cabins and apartments once in while when you just want couple nights now and then but looking for a interm solution as a backup even though will still stay in cabins. If you don't yet have a c/van to have options of a cheaper powered site what else would be a option that's as comfortable as a van and cabin that is as easy to setup and pack up. What could you do to afford a cabin more often or do it longer every time. sister is staying at parents house for a month and am realising how much am wanting own space. Not in a hurry to move out permanently just looking for interm solution. Some times it's hard but generally going ok just need someone to talk to and hoping to reach out on here. Thanks

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?
