Aha - that sounds nice Littlewid, but as he is ex maybe not so good, I wont ask more.

Let's hope your evening sorting goes okay and you get some time to relax with your furries.

How brilliant was that to come home to Lai such memories, how on earth could they not continue to make the best programme ever on TV

Me too Lai. They have all become such a huge part of our lives haven't they and we are so fortunate that there are so many good blogs out there to help keep us up to date with them all....just wish we could still have Simon, Jonathan, saba and Jackson on our screens as well with them all.

I whish this laptop was fast enough to watch the video, but unfortunatly it's not. It really blows your mind some of the rubbish they put on when we could be watching BCD. I know not everyone likes programes like this, but there are a lot of programes everyone does'nt like get rid of them, and put some quality on. As you say thank heavens for the Blogs, those people are doing a great job of keeping us it touch

Thank you Lai!! Its good to be back. When are you off? And did I read you were staying at Ngong House as well? Very Happy Apparently you get a driver while you stay there who can take you off as and when you want to go. I'm so looking forward to see our baby elephants at DSWT and visiting the Masai Mara. I'm still contemplating arranging a trip to Voi when we are at Mombassa to go to the rehabilitation site there so I can see Shimba and Dida.

I think between you, me and Doogs we will be overloading the forum with safari photos :)

Hi AM, how are the wedding plans going?

This week in work has been hectic, strange how your boss forgets that you took a 10% pay cut 2 years ago to keep your job and havent had a pay rise since, not even the rate of inflation, but still expects you to fit three days work into one no matter if you are in until 10pm (I walk out the door at 5pm regardless - we dont get paid overtime anymore either).

And to top it all I have not been feeling right either, queasy on an off this week too.

We are in for a quiet weekend and will hopefully get some good pics with the camera. What ever you are doing I hope you have fun!

Hi SM. Wedding plans are coming along really well. I think all we have left to arrange now is the flowers.

Its funny the things they forget isn't it? 10% is a lot as well Crying or Very sad must be so frustrating. There are lots of funny bugs going around at the moment so make sure you rest up properly over the weekend. I think we are all in need of spring to arrive quickly.

We're off to a wedding fair on sunday at the place we are getting married Very Happy it'll be nice to see it all set up. I've not been to have a look since feb last year!!

Spooky, Anne-Marie are you getting married here? We are having a wedding fayre this sunday

We are off on 23rd September for 10 days. I hadn't realised about a driver at Ngong House, that's brilliant as we've places we want to visit, DSWT being one of course. We then go to Sarara camp in the north and end up in the Mara at Rekero. I am just so looking forward to it.

Hoping you'll be feeling better soon SM - a quiet weekend will do you the world of good.

Afternoon all drunken

Firstly let me thank you all for your well wishes re Lance running last Saturday. The ground had gone against him, it was very heavy but both him and Pete (our jockey) got round safe and sound so that's the main thing. He'll come on for the run and once he gets better ground he'll definitely improve. I'll post a couple of pictures in the 'horses' thread.

Awful news from Newbury last week and it was confirmed yesterday that the horses had been electrocuted Sad I'm really glad I wasn't there, that would have haunted me forever if I'd had seen/heard that Crying or Very sad

It's F - R - I - D - A - Y again drunken Ian and I heading out for tea and the pictures after work. Not sure what we're going to see yet, think it might be either NEDS or The Fighter.

Loving the clips you are posting Lai, brings back such a lot of great memories :) and it looks like memories is all we're going to have of BCD Sad

Mum & Dad went to see the Strictly tour last Saturday in Glasgow. They enjoyed it but said it was a bit 'staged' !

Don't get the new glasses WS - two Boddies are definitely better than one Laughing

Ooooh LW, Valentines Cards from ex's ?? !!!! Razz

Poor you SM, bosses do have short memories don't they !! Hope you feel better soon and manage to chill/relax at the weekend.

Good to hear from you AM and I hope those wedding plans are in full flow, not that long now :) Cool

Right, lunctime over Sad

Have a good one everybody

I agree Doogs, I would have cried had I seen that happening to those two poor horses, as it is I can't imagine how the owners/jockeys/grooms etc must feel. What a horrible thing to happen.

Enjoy whatever film you see - full report on Monday please, we keep saying we'll go and see a film but can't decide what scratch You are right about the Strictly show, very staged but still a good laugh.

Have a great weekend - here's a short clip from BCD to end the week on. Seriously cute.

Apparently the noises were worse than what you saw visually which is just horrific to think about Crying or Very sad Sad

Pictures have been dunted on the head for another time - Ian running late at work so not going to manage home in time - there's always another night.

Oooooh yes please with the clips

Nope Lai, we're getting married in Clapham near Bedford Very Happy

I wasn't told about the drivers at Ngong House, however I read it here:
http://www.ngonghouse.com/NgongHouse.pdf

The whole PDF is worth a read, the bit about the drivers is on the last page.

The story about the horses at Newbury was so upsetting. If I had been there to witness that I don't think I'd ever get over it. My mum heard an interview that said the noises were horrendous.

Another wonderful BCD clip. Very Happy

Thank you so,so much for that Lai. It's been a couple of very sad, emotional days with news that has knocked me for six a bit, so that has just made me smile and cry at the same time, but in a good way.
Thanks flower
