Welcome back.

I just tried a forced reactivation on your original account. I'm sure that someone must have tried before, but you never know. It MAY be worth trying to log in again as Oldjerry.

Yeah Old Jerry and Mike still play!

Hello one and all, I hope you are all well.

Thanks to digger not dreamer for the email, prompted my little peep back on this site.

Things are all strange with me at the minute.

Good strange.

Working at home in the garden on my own, wasn't for me, made me depressed.

Having a a house worth £500k and not enough money to take the kids on holiday, is also a pretty stupid situation.

So I spent the spring clearing up the rubbish, paid someone to come in and do some gardening, remortgaged, bought a three bed house to do up and rent out, and then a Shopping arcade with 8 small shops and 3x 1 bed flats. I am still a bit of a hippy and want to do the shops as "social enterprise" I have let 3 so far of the shops, and I am just starting now tarting up the old place.

We put our house on the market, but no joy, had a small shed fire courtesy of my father, and then took it off again.

I am actually enjoying the gardens wilderness at the minute, and the birds are loving the abundance of fruit going to waste.

I want a smaller "territory" to call my own, this one is too big for me.

Wife and kids are wonderful.

My Brother has been in Hospital for 4 months, and just gone to a residential home for Adults with "learning difficulties" His Anti Nuts medication caused a Neuro Malignancy which put in ICU for two months, and now he's off the Meds he's shall we say challenging!

Again, hope you are all well.

When I have my little house and garden with a greenhouse, and an allotment I will be back with more wit, humor, sarcasm, and opinion.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Sounds like a rough year, boboff. I think everyone's been feeling the same, one way of another.

I'm glad you're OK, if a little battered, and hope all goes well with you with your plans. :hugish:

Hiya boboff, nice to see you again.
Sorry to hear about your woes and interested that you have become a property magnate, soon to rival the Duchy down your way.
Good luck and pop in from time to time and let us know how it's all working out.
Tony
