Very wise, though part of me wishes you had said yes, of course!

KerryMumbles Sat 13-Jun-09 14:39:14

Oh go on. You could do it all extreme. Then we could all laugh our socks off.

cornsilk Sat 13-Jun-09 16:59:37

Yes could could pretend to feed him octopus lips and things like that.

EccentricaGallumbits Sat 13-Jun-09 17:01:07

KerryMumbles Sat 13-Jun-09 17:52:48

Yeah but you guys would be the only ones who got it. Everyone else would assume I was dead serious....

Love the idea of you spoofing it Kerry, but seriously you were totally right to run a mile. No good ever comes of these things for the people involved as far as I can tell & I always wonder why any parent puts their child through it (doesn't take a genius to figure that the press will always make you out to be wierdos of one sort or another however normal you really are)

Aw thanks gorgeous. I'm ok. Was in Croatia for 10 days. Had one of the most fantastic times of my life but my heart is a bit sore now so dealing with that....

girlylala0807 Sun 14-Jun-09 11:15:14

Did you enjoy Croatia?

Will it help with the book?

HumphreyCobbler Sun 14-Jun-09 11:20:06


i always wonder what on EARTH those who agree are thinking

KerryMumbles Sun 14-Jun-09 11:45:09

omg the people I talked to. It was amazing. I have so much information now. I have a real feel for everything. And the stories I was told. Shattering.

The family I stayed with were amazing. It was like the family I never had. We got on so great. I adore them and miss them terribly.

girlylala0807 Sun 14-Jun-09 11:49:37


im glad the trip was worthwhile.

I have a real soft spot for Croatia, the history and the culture is fascinating if at times a bit depressing.

Anyway sorry i hijacked your thread.
