Happy Birthday Mildred !!

 

Well, I'm assuming it's your birthday seeing as how your status for today reads 'Birthday Girl' ?

 

Never in the history of female hint-dropping have I experienced such a concerted campaign.

There's been more reminders on here about your bl**dy birthday than I get for me to pay my gas bill!

 

Anyway, thanks for brightening up the forum.

We have had a bit of a whip round and ordered you a new 'Like' button as your original one must be pretty much worn out by now.

 

Do have a lovely day and don't forget that tradition demands that you buy us all a cream cake to celebrate!

Wheeeeeep!!!!! Oh THANK YOU and LIKE LIKE LIKE!, @Snakehips !!! Hehe! It is indeed my Birthday, fancy you noticing!!!

Anyway, here's a jolly big hug for you :)

 

I have thoroughly enjoyed joining in the forum fun, and even managed to be serious at times - imparting a dollop of wisdom or a smidgen of advice (that was probably totally incorrect, oh ok, it WAS totally incorrect)!

 

And thank you too, @hotmetal, and another hug!!

Virtual ream cakes for you both!

 

I would like to say you've both made my day but to be honest when I reveal all (shortly, I just need to recover some composure) you will realise it has been well and truly made already.

 

Suffice to say I *may* be updating my signature fairly shortly . . .

 

Awww! Thanks again!! XX

Not sure about a 'ream cake' but I'm chuffed to hear we've brightened your special day! I'm now on tenterhooks (good old Saxon phrase) to find out your secret to be revealed in your sig. Is it strong dark and muscular, with a huge set of burrs? Or are you being unfaithful to the R58 brotherhood? Or is it Guinea pig triplets!?
