  1. Hi Dec I'm a fellow Brit from Kettering northants. Welcome to the forum. You will find a lot of help and support here.
  2. Ok Baby Herc you twisted my arm i shall dedicated a seperate post for each kitty: First up snowy we were going to call him snow white as we thought he was a lady but soon discovered she was a he. He is a very sensetive boy and loves cuddles but in private!! I have to go in the toilet (and sit with the lid down by the way) shut the door so he gets private petting away from the others. When we lived in Bletchley (Bletchley of Alan Turing -Enigma fame) he went missing for two weeks. We spent every day posting pics of him, and searching for him we were literally 1 week away from moving to our new home - here in Kettering and he just turned up ...phew!!! Snowy as a Kitten Snowy now 8years old Shall post another tomorrow, Love your bassat hound by the way Synny667 lovely Dogs and monka is a beauty baby herc
  3. Yeh my wife had 40 quid on Italy winning it - frustrating I will keep an eye on threads for the Olympics most defiantly as it is in my home country ( I am about 60 miles from London) and can get to St Pancreas station from Kettering or Euston from Northampton easily within an hour. I have not got tickets but may pop down to soak up the atmosphere. Big fan of running 200 meters was my best track event at school. But will be interested in seeing how the inclusion of footie as an event pans out - no David Beckham in team GB though....wtf?
  4. Heres one of our seven cats, his name is Tom and he is much bigger now. Most nights he joins me on the bed, he likes to sleep at the bottom of the bed in between my feet. All our cats are rescued. We rescued number seven - skippy - from the council rubbish tip believe it or not. We think she was dumped there by some ahole. Luckily we found her there and after making enquiries soon realised she was not owned by any staff members. We took her home her fur was bald (she was infested with fleas and must have been rubbing half her fur off with the irritation) and nursed her back to health she is now totally flea free and is actually a long haired cat. I will post more pics of all seven cats if anyone is interested, i am not a mad cat person honest but me and my wife are suckers when it comes to rescue animals.
  5. Yeah you never know what you are going get with him. He must be a managers nightmare
  6. Well Spain really turned it on and showed everyone why they are defending Euro champs, world cup winners and now euro champs again. That is a new record now to win 3 major titles back to back. They played the best football I have seen in the tournament. A pleasure to watch let's see if they can do it again in 2014 world cup - hope not, I would like to see England win it again.
  7. Hi MF not at the moment I have been having some health checks done but once I am sure all is ok I shall get back to it. I don't mean to be mysterious as it is all probably nothing but I shall fill ya in soon. How did your daughters birthday go by the way? Hope she had a fun day.
  8. To ight is a nervy night England vs Ukraine. I shall post more later after the match if I have not collapsed under the stress. At least Rooneys back should help add some more strength at the front
  9. Hi MF just to chime in to wish your daughter a happy birthday hope you all have a great weekend
  10. Hi all, Looks like Ireland are struggling again. Mind you I am only in 35 min at moment - so who knows? Maybe by some miracle Ireland will show some sheer inspiration- doubt it. Dylan, might have been a fluke for the Danes - but wasn't it 92 when they didn't even qualify for the tournament but went through because of the expulsion of Yugoslavia (because of the war I believe). Then went on to win it! Who knows with this competition what will happen it's a funny old game as saints and greavsie would say. I think England will do alright against Sweden tomorrow because they just have to gosh dang it!
  11. You've got to remember this is a new fresh England team with a new manager. Rooney is on suspension at the moment so we lack his flair but to hold against France like that shows promise. I agree Germany should be better than that but this not the same team from the klinesman era. Fair play to Ukraine what a superior second half and made this the game of the tournament so far. I think with the way it went so far England can play Sweden with confidence, however they shouldn't underestimate the Ukraine.
  12. Can't believe nobody has mentioned doctor who, Tom Baker was my Doctor I grew up with ( yes I am in my 40's). However one you may not of heard of was the wombles - the first Eco kids program about strange animals living on Wimbledon common and recycling the rubbish left their by us humans. A bit of trivia: the British actor Bernard cribbens did all the voices for the puppets and also had a recurring role in the new doctor who as Donna Nobles grandad.
  13. I agree Russia is looking pretty good. Germany played pretty well against Portugal although I did want Portugal to win England however did very well against France. Pity about the French equaliser but it was a cracking good shot. However we did very well on the whole, the team has a new vibe with Roy Hodgsen in charge. As I am typing this I am watching Ukraine vs Sweden. 0:0 at the moment (40 mins into game) so I am finding it very difficult to keep my train of thought whilst watching at the same time. My wife is right men cannot multitask ( unless of course you consider drinking beer and watching the footie multitasking )
  14. Hi there, you are not far from me I am in Kettering Northamptonshire. I was also born in Bedford and lived in kempston for my early years. Good to meet you and look forward to your posts
  15. yeah looks really good - shall get my wife to help with the translation though. Although she is Portuguese she does understand italian.
