    I've been wondering about that myself, what happens if you cant bring it to a solution in 5 minutes.

    Mmmm, how about I tell you in the AC thread ;) psni will be dishing out some reprimands if we carry on this subject in here. I'll race ya over there :D

    Magnum!!

    A blooming case or 3 would go down nicely lol.
    No but honestly I am on a mission now and wont stop until i achieve it. I want to get rid of another half stone, tone up and keep to my healthy eating and no drinking. Might fall by the way side on the odd occasion lol. Planning to go away over the 12th so might have a wee 'glass' or 2 !

    Coulnt believe it when i got the call, ive had so many calls over the past few days with withheld and thought it was the psni everytime. Then when the phone went today, i said 'its not them' then they said the magic words ......................
    of which ive forgotten because i was so far by myself lol

    Now we need to go out and buy all the stuff on the shopping list that psni posted a while back. I never thought id see this day.

    I took a big deep breath when I read this, and smiled a huge smile. Remember all those PM's asking "are you sure, are you sure..."

    :)

    You're welcome mate. See you on the inside!

    Approx a big whole smelly year! Mind you it did feel like 4 or 5 years. Trust me you will understand when it's you in the same boat - tick tock tick tock tick tock lol.

    Wanalaugh, that's great news mate, well done. See, it's all coming together. GCBC & Given don't be too disheartened, even if you don't get the call for Aug there are drafts every 5 weeks and there's no cut-off if you're still awaiting vetting to be cleared. Besides, if you get a call for Nov at least I won't be on my tod with no boardsies to meet up with ;)
