Hello ladies,

Anj and I are definately gunna meet, probably over white wine and ice cream in the garden next summer, will have to loose more weight between now and then and work on my squating so I don't get told off for being lazy!  ;)
Anj sent me a moving in card and Tigger a 30th brthday card (yup, bagged myself a toy boy...get in!!!) I got really teary when I opened it, big softie really! Anj helped me through my rehab, didn't you darlin' ;D

Goo..Annie? 21 sleeps hey darlin' very exciting times, you gunna be mended soon with a lovely shiny new knee, hooray xxx
I know what you mean about sawing peoples legs off! I'm in my flowers today, had massive mps yesterday and could have eaten someones face off in aggression! Grrrr! It's crap being a girl sometimes! I went through so many emotions before my surgery, about a week before I got the 'I don't need this surgery, what the heck am I doing...' followed by a really bad knee day and a kick back to reality, back to excitement and then back to apprehension, la de la de la, you're gunna be great, plus you're got us 'freaks' to keep you compnay during your post op when you can tell us all your gory details  :o :-X :) ;) :D ;D

My favourite language barrier word thingy is PANTS!!!!! Always make me laugh like a small child! Pants are underwear for boys or girls underwear if they are big! Girls smalls are called knickers! Also the fanny word! Tee Hee, *starts giggling like a pre-pubescent girl* It's not a bottom, it's a font bottom! You guys, tee hee, got it the wrond way round, tee hee!

Bonnie - I'm cuddling too, it's not chubby it's cuddle chub! So we're all gunna meet Mickey Mouse together then? **She does the making ears thing with hands and hops around singing Mickey Mouse** :P Don't forget I have to swim with a manatese, that's one of my dreams. They have cuddle chub too!

Oops, am rambling, la de la de la! Better do some work! Bleugh! Gunna have a fag forst! (That's a cigarette not a gay man! Tee Hee, think a gay man would not want to be 'had' by me! Being that I'm a girl and all that!, rambling again.......

Hopx

Wow, nice!

I live in a city / town called Southampton in the south of England, it's a port so not the most attractive place in the world but will ding dang do for me! It's dark and cloudy and wet and only 16:54pm, winter is upon us! Can't wait until Christmas, snuggling up in front of the telly with some mulled wine!

 ;D

Miami has a good sized port too.  I have heard of Southhampton.  Hey home is home.  Why wait for Christmas?  mulled wine, snuggling up in fron of the telly will ward off those dark cloudy afternoons... I used to live in New York, I will never forget.

So you've named your spouse's Pooh & Tigger, cute, care to explain?

I've heard Southhampton is lovely!!!

Wine tasting at work? awesome - book that taxi!

My day has gotten much better, much pain earlier, so took some pain med and then rode the stationary bike for 15 in the gym in my building because I thought keeping it moving might be good...NOT, so iced and elevated and a friend came to visit and made me laugh and the pain has finally subsided.

take care and let's keep laughing!

Hi Bonnie
So glad for you that your pain has subsided - friends are a good distraction.

When Hop and I first met on here she said she calls her fella tigger - and the other night when I needed to refer to my hubbie - I just named him pooh.

My pooh actually has 3 tattooes, pooh , eyore and a big bouncing tigger! How mad/cool is that!

Bonnie seems like you are getting stronger and stronger each day.  You will need the ice for a while but it is better to keep that leg moving ..   like a mad woman..  8)
