How was your day today? I hope it was okay. What did you get up to?

Hey Jo not flash

I posted a little about it but my tale of woe included the s*** word. So it's probably in a very long queue waiting for the poor overworked and underpaid moderator to ok it

Hi Jo

THANK YOU heaps for posting this.  I'm off to see my mum and bro tomorrow for a few days, but when I'm back late on the weekend, it'll be something that we'll tackle at home in the kitchen early next week.  And thank you, because you've given me something to look forward too.  🙂  🙂

Hi Amamas, that's not good to hear you're not flash ... which forum thread did you put your post onto?  I will look out for it.

Cheers

Neil
