Starting off a journey with Richard that will end up with us becoming a family of more than just us 2 and the bunnies.

Now just to get through all the red tape of the adoption process.

Mini T got an absolutely outstanding report from her teacher at Parents' Evening :)

He said that she is well above average across the board, but in particular her writing projects are considerably above average and the trend line indicates that her progress is going to accelerate.  He says that her work is not only technically great, but also consistently interesting to read which marks it as being something really quite special :)

I am so very very proud of her.  She works hard and has seen an awesome result. :D :D :D

On my profile page a little green box has appeared saying 'Karma: 6 Neutral'

Should I be happy that my karma is 6?! what does this mean?!

When I was around 20 I started getting painful cystic acne on my face.  I went on dianette which helped a little, giving up smoking helped even more, generally getting older helped even more.  I still had spots, but hey - I was in my 20s, that was ok.

When I was 28, and my migraines became monthly I came off the pill. My cystic acne proceeded to get worse. And worse. And worse. I tried everything, and hoped that it would settle as my hormones settled. It didn't.

In December, on the train home from Karmageddon, I WEPT and Jamie resolved we were going to sort this out.

8 months, several diets, a course of antibiotics, and ultimately 20 weeks on Isotretinoin (Roaccutane), the dermatologist has just told me that, aged 30 and a half, I no longer have acne.

I could cry. In fact I have. It's amazing. AMAZING.

You can't see what you got Karma points for though, can you? I mean, once that particular post has disappeared into the forum.

I apparently have excellent karma (I imagine Bill and Ted telling me this), but I don't know why.


#705667 Virtue is its own reward...

Posted Gaz on 21 September 2010 - 07:31 pm

A few weeks ago we had a postcard delivered for a couple who I assumed were previous tenants of our house back when it was a rental property. I didn't recognise the name, but the card was from a friend of theirs who'd obviously had a hard time a while back and had been travelling the world after their partner had died. We didn't have an address for them, but the people had a surname that wasn't that common so I had a look on Google and found someone with the same name as the chap working at Warwick uni. I emailed him and it turned out to be the right person, so I wrote the new address on the card, popped it in the post box, and didn't think anything more of it.

Tonight, his wife came round and dropped off a box of chocolates to say thanks for putting them back in touch with their friend :)

First Friday as a joinee, tomorrow. LilyDusk (Lily) and I have prepared coloured good morning messages to leave on people's door and cars in the morning. It will be fun, I think. Need a good idea for next week! Have a nice evening, joinees!

Craig! He brought my make up bag to work so I didn't have to face parents evening looking like a hag.

And when I got home I discovered he had bought me a wheelie crate so I don't have to carry a huge heavy bag of books to and from school every day.

And now he is cooking tea, and not complaining that I have come in and flopped on the sofa :D

He is awesome!

I believe nobody uses the little + and - icons on the right of the posts for good or bad karma, why not? I think it's a good way to show you've read something and liked it but you don't really have much more to add..

And also.. where is this 'karma' shown in the forum? it accumulates per user or something?

thank you :)

#713312 best present

Posted PJ Hannah B-R on 10 December 2010 - 02:42 pm

On our first valentine's day living together Jamie didn't have a job and had NOOOO money. So he bought two packets of tissue paper, one green, one red, and made me a dozen roses.

It's still the absolute best present he's ever given me. I love them. They are sat fading on top of our bookshelf and are probably covered in dust :)

#738048 Help me find him, he's in Worcester somewhere

Posted Keen Joinee (GTJ) on 20 October 2013 - 05:46 pm

Not that I was good at this sort of thing in my younger days....

But google tells me there is a man named Matt working as a manager for a company called Unipart-car-care-centre in Bromsgrove, Worcester. Could that be him?

There's this singer songwriter who I MASSIVELY admire. I think she's wonderful. And she's been on never mind the buzzcocks twice. Back when it was good. And she works with awesome people and I love her.

Anyway, in the last year or so we've sort of become semi friends via twitter, and also her husband runs a gorgeous coffee shop in Newcastle, so we've chatted more and more.  She asked me how I was doing, and I sent her a little email saying how things were going, and mentioned I was thinking of trying to write some poetry or songs, but was expecting it to be fairly horrific to start with as I've not done it before.  And she's invited me to come and hang out and write with her.

Lordy. This is so cool.

That and the healthy diet is making me feel shiny still and I get to briefly see my kiddiwinks today.

La lalalala!

#734961 My First Act (So Proud)

Posted Rob C on 19 November 2012 - 10:41 am

It has happened,

It may be small but I am proud and it has started me on the path to kindness for all!!!

This weekend I saw the chance for kindness and I managed to offer the same lady two acts. I was in the Liverpool city centre and a lady was struggling with many bags towards the lift, the door started to close their was look of panic in her eyes, of regret, of frustration as the door shut and our eyes no longer met. I knew this was my chance my duty was bound so I leapt (or moved forward) and press the door open button. The lift pinged the door opened and the smile and thank you said it all as the lady entered the lift, her day had taken a turn for the better and I felt good.

The reason for my lift journey was a coffee in the restaurant, upon arriving I purchased my coffee and took my seat (it was busy) upon sitting down and enjoying my beverage, I saw my lift buddy once again again bags in hand looking for a seat to rest her weary legs,  I thought this could be my chance, two acts in one day in a small space of time. Again our eyes met (none romantic) and she smiled, this was my chance and I knew it. I beckoned her over and offered her my seat to enjoy her coffee and recharge for the day. I have to say she was delighted and her words to me were "you are my saviour", I told her it was my pleasure.

As I walked away I smiled realising that after joining this forum my life had taken a new path and it felt good.


(I realised this is slightly over dramatised but first post and all I want to make a statement. Have a great week all)
