Look at it sideways - it's a zero, plus an infinite amout of birthday wishes!
(There, I think that sounded plausible enough...)

Aaaaanyway, it's not every year you get a palindrome for your birthday! It's the 02/02/2020 today, in case you had forgotten!

I may be back at some stage, but right now it's time I went away. There is too much to explain but suffice it to say that I need time and the h'internet steals that from me continuously and nothing gets done. Big decisions have been made here and I need more time. If you see me popping up again soon you have my permission to promptly kick me in the derryair and toss me out. Himself will have to subscribe to Boards now instead of getting me to 'find out what does Boards say about X". I'll miss you all. I'll miss a few other fora (hey, I can speak latin!! ) Hugs to all! Mwa Mwa! (sniffles) Go on, Jelly, submit reply, submit reply, go on!
I think I interacted with you at some point in the distant past- probably many years ago now- giving up boards for a while is no bad thing - there's more to life than post-count - hope you're doing well.

Oldies? I don't know any oldies! I'm just cocooning staying at home because, er, I want to. Yes, loads of gardening to do, curtains to make, you know, stuff. How're you doing yourself?

I keep telling my wife that we should be social distancing but she won't let me move into a hotel on my own.

Social distancing is nothing new,

I used to clear off to the pub every evening after tea,

Now I am staying home I'm getting to know the wife all over again,

Seems like a nice ol' gal, a flower arranger apparently.....

Good thanks- I have a job that I can work from home so one of the lucky ones. Stay safe all.

Times like this I wish I had invested in a nice little outdoor room - would be nice hideaway

I've been drawing up plans for a shed but my missus thinks that we are getting one of those garden rooms whereas the reality will be more like...

I retired from my job on 31st March - oddest retirement ever. No goodbye party or nuthin'. I understood why - but I didn't like it.

Sounds perfect to me tbh. When I go I have already made plans to give them a final date but to then not show up for the last week. I cannot abide the thoughts of those speeches lauding my praises and job history from people that I've never worked beside. The whole handshake and backslapping deal leaves me cold.
It's my introversion rearing it's head.
