found all this on the internet yesterday...bit mushy...but think it is appropriate:

Be who you are and say what you feel,
Because those who mind don't matter,
and those who matter don't mind.


Flatter me, and I may not believe you.
Criticize me, and I may not like you.
Ignore me, and I may not forgive you.
Encourage me, and I will not forget you.
Love me and I may be forced to love you.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal:
It is the courage to continue that counts.


I've learned that …
People will forget what you said,
People will forget what you did,
People will never forget how you made them feel

TheRealMrsF Wed 20-Apr-05 23:00:35

ooops! told you all i can't do abbreviations!!!!

I meant OVER THE TOP!!!

TheRealMrsF Wed 20-Apr-05 23:01:36

and another...........
Sometimes being a friend means mastering the art of timing.
There is a time for silence.
A time to let go and allow people to hurl themselves into their own destiny.
………..And a time to pick up the pieces when it's all over

TheRealMrsF Wed 20-Apr-05 23:02:17

............and another..........I would much rather have regrets about not doing what people said,
than regretting not doing what my heart led me to and wondering what life had been like
….If I’d just been myself

TheRealMrsF Wed 20-Apr-05 23:03:06

and i promise this is the last ....

Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.

TheRealMrsF Wed 20-Apr-05 23:03:53

actually....maybe i should post this on CRAFTS aswell !!!! (they are great for the CardMakers amoungst us!!!!)

Davros Wed 20-Apr-05 23:11:36

How about

Don't walk on front of me, I may kick you up the arse
Don't walk behind me, I may fart
Just walk beside me to be on the safe side

Davros, I'm in awe of your skills. Really.

Davros Wed 20-Apr-05 23:22:13

Would you like a presentation copy?

tamum Wed 20-Apr-05 23:25:31

Will it be laminated?

Davros Wed 20-Apr-05 23:25:59


TheRealMrsF Wed 20-Apr-05 23:28:12

MMMMMMMMMmmmmmm............and i've got Publisher on this PC have just designed a colourful calender!!!

And earlier today ....i pinched a picture of a clock with no hands (why you may well ask!)off the internet...then pasted it many times onto a Publisher Document...then typed in the different steps we go through getting ready for school....drink/breakfast/teeth etc....and added a 'digital clock ' for each...then printed it off.....drew in the hands by hand...then laminated the lot...doing the velcro bit tommorow!!! So at last i will have the schedule board i have 'visualised' for ages.

Davros Wed 20-Apr-05 23:31:16

You're way ahead of me, I'm impressed and jealous. You need to do a MasterClass MrsF.

TheRealMrsF Wed 20-Apr-05 23:32:24

well.....only if i can sit next to u!!!!!

Davros Wed 20-Apr-05 23:35:18

You can sit on my lap and do my homework.

Davros Wed 20-Apr-05 23:35:42

eeurgh, does that sound weird/pervy?

TheRealMrsF Wed 20-Apr-05 23:38:08

No...for once i won't take you literally !!!!!

beccaboo Thu 21-Apr-05 12:20:58

Davros, your work of literature has given me the best laugh of the week

coppertop Thu 21-Apr-05 13:26:52


You forgot the last bit of the last sentence, Davros. It should be:

"Just walk beside to be on the safe side but don't invade my personal speace or I'll give you an arse-kicking anyway!"

Where do we sign up for the MrsF Masterclass? I've got Publisher too.
