I know I've been dripping this in across the board but terrified of jinxing as ADM yet to sign off but LO! Panel did say yes grin
2 months short of 4 years into the adoption process and we are officially (pending, yep) matched and due to start intros in three weeks time bear
I have been dying to tell all of you amazing, supportive people but didn't want to say anything too early...but I'm bursting!
Thank you so so much for your PMs, gifts and care over these 4 years of, well, poop.
I will stop gushing now. grin

So glad for you choccy. Hate this fucking bench. But not, I'll bet, anything like as much as you have. Is your dc super excited?

Um. Do we need a new bench for new people awaiting matching? Obviously they can't use this one, it's broken (and in flames).

We're torching this frigging bench after about four fucking years and you, tldr, you want to BUILD A NEW ONE??????????

Super news!!! I've been a bit of a lurker but thought about you lots - I'm utterly thrilled for you!!!

tldr Sun 14-May-17 20:33:59

Well, we can't leave them standing around conserve, they're making the place look untidy. They need to be corralled. <nods>

ChoccyJules Sun 14-May-17 23:05:43

Let's get them a gazebo. No more benches. They are too sturdy and last too long.

ChoccyJules Sun 14-May-17 23:06:26

grin thanks all grin

Congratulations! After 2 and half years in the process I start intros in 2 weeks. I'll be counting the days down with you :-)

Prumarth Mon 15-May-17 08:02:05

Oh my word! I'm dusting off my original mn name to celebrate the ceremonial burning of the bench and building of the gazebo.

Congrats Choccy, wonderful news! X

Congrats Clarinda flowers

ChoccyJules Mon 15-May-17 12:19:33

I am using gin bottles as walls for the gazebos. They are not empty. I think they could come in handy for those inside gin wink

tldr Mon 15-May-17 13:44:33

I think we should save the gin for the 'new placement' gazebo/bench...

LocoMoco Mon 15-May-17 19:40:32

It's about time that old bench was torched.

Exceedingly happy for you choccy it's about bloomin time grin
