Sheye, I'm sure Tom will enjoy those vids when he returns.

Where the heck has everyone been tonight?

I'm watching things on youtube right now, but I'll keep checking in.

Can someone check on the lurkers while I'm away? I saw the pixies bringing them drinks and cake earlier.

Gah, lights flickered again. I am soooooo ready for Spring!

"International Women's Day (IWD) is celebrated on March 8 every year."

So this post is to celebrate our female shed members and lurkers. Thank you for making this world more beautiful and soft.

Going well. Plenty of snow on the ground at the moment, so the Shepherditos are getting a regular sledding/snowball-fight session in each day. Won't last too long - they're predicting highs in 50's in the long-term forecast.

I'm still writing on my novel - I'm up to 143 episodes in the Falling thread, and I'll be posting 144 today. The source document is at 122000 words & 259 pages in MS Word.
Erm, it's a big story. LOL

How are you?

Dude, I love the new avatar and the pics you've been posting but I must ask one thing. It's a question my Nan used to shout through the bathroom door. My brother used to "go to the toilet" for half an hour.

"Tony, are you smoking those Moroccan cigarettes again?"




Yeah, I know. Coldplay. Some people hate em. I don't like all their songs but they have cracked out quite a few bangers over the years. I possess the 2003 live dvd and it's quite the colourful extravaganza.

Apologies for not reaponding to my replies sooner. I wrecked my vehicle on Tuesday, on the way to pick my girls up from school. All involved were ok. Then had to tell my girls that our planned trip to FL would have to wait. They were devastated😞

My suggestion to “get to know” each other wasn’t meant to ruffle any feathers, I apologize and withdraw it.

Well wishes to everyone.

So sorry to hear about your accident chels 😕. With all the snow here .. there have been lots of accidents.
Hopefully your children will get over the disappointment and you can hopefully reschedule the trip at some point in the future.

You didn’t ruffle my feathers by asking your question, but I also understand why some may enjoy their anonymity here.

Take care and God bless .

* waves hello to all Sheddites and a big warm hug for all *

Snow is cool. I love snow.

122,000 words, eh? I'm envious!

As for me I'm just doing random stuff, as usual.

I thought it was Sheye who proposed a little "getting to know you" posts but it was you. Sounds like a good idea to me so allow me to start. If you will.


I am an English guy that got the chance (purely by good fortune!) to get a chance in NL 25 years ago. English friends of my parents were established here (they'd been living here for 3 years years and had 2 flats (apartments?) at the time. The Mum and Dad lived with 3 teenage children in 1 flat and their adult son had his own flat. Their son lent us (me and my Dad came here together at the time) one of his bedrooms until we got on our feet. After 1 week we (my Dad and me) both had work (we both spoke no Dutch!) in simple production jobs. Within a month we had our own flat, moved to another flat with a more permanent basis and after 6 months my step-mother joined us. I came to the Netherlands with my Dad on a one-way ticket, 100 dollars (250 guldens) in Dads' pocket, 1 suitcase each.

Finding work here was easy at the time even with no Dutch skills, simple production work that paid. After a couple of years of temporary work we both got permanent contracts working for Compaq in their distribution centre in Gorinchem (anyone remember Compaq?) and Dad bought a cheap house here. I met a Dutch girl and lived with her for 10 years. I learnt the Dutch language after a few years and also taught myself how to be a system administrator and remained that for the next 15 years. During that time Dad and step-Mum moved back to England to care for Dad's sick Mother and I remained here. I do not like living in England.

Then I became unemployed aged 40 and have since been unable to find work, hence my temporary housing which I have been living in for the last 5.5 years. And "welfare". I've learned to live with less. It ain't always easy but it is what it is. I still have by UK passport but they can't kick me out, regardless of Brexit.

Story of my life, kinda

ETA My ex (she left me for another guy, it happens) eventually regained contact, helped me into temporary housing. After a few years. she got lung cancer and underwent chemo and radiotherapy. It didn't help. I remained her friend and helped her as best I could. Due to the progression of her cancer she chose euthanasia and chose me to be her beneficiary which basically entailed me taking care of her business. I emptied her house after she had passed and arranged for the bills to be paid and took legal responsibility. It's (not) funny how life goes. It is what it is. I regret nothing except the pain and turmoil but wouldn't change a thing.

Hello everyone.

Thanks again for the greetings yesterday, and thanks Sheye for the tunes.
I do like the Old Muppets.

Before I go I saw something I felt I had to post here.
I leave you these pictures from yesteryear without comment.





Again no comment.
Except maybe they could of called the cereal,
