Hello <waves> phew no men in white coats....

Rhubarb01 Thu 18-Jun-15 12:15:49

Saying hello to thread number 20. Now time to go and do something less interesting! See you all later.

pixieg1rl Thu 18-Jun-15 12:19:58

This room has lovely soft walls...

Hello thread 20

KeziaOAP Thu 18-Jun-15 12:20:34

Thanks for lovely movie pics ice, little OG fix for me grin.

KeziaOAP Thu 18-Jun-15 12:21:53

Hey pixie are you in the writer's room? hmm

pixieg1rl Thu 18-Jun-15 12:22:43

More of a padded cell kez

elsie3g Thu 18-Jun-15 12:23:00

I like your white outfit Pixie, through I'm not sure about the sleeves and the wrap-around thing you've got going on...

Nickel45 Thu 18-Jun-15 12:34:09

Hello (pretending I'm working and concentrating hard!). Thread 20, who'd've thought we'd been going this long!!

Great to have you back elsie grin (I still have "keep focused" on my phone!) and welcome tan smile .... it's amazing, so long after the series finished and we are still getting newbies, BRILLIANT!!! If only spo would come and say hello ... or give us a new zombies story ... just so we know you are still out there!

pixieg1rl Thu 18-Jun-15 12:34:36

I'm so institutionalised that when I saw this on twitter I thought of orphan playing hide the sausage roll in the haha.

Richtea19 Thu 18-Jun-15 13:00:20

Wow a new thread!
Welcome back elsie god I love those sound clips. And hello tanqueen! I do hope cherin is still lurking.

elsie3g Thu 18-Jun-15 13:22:13

Thanks for the warm rewelcome all!

I had a break a while back due to home/work/general life stuff, but I've pretty much been with you all the way, silently toasting you on 'Prosecco Friday' as I've come to know it.

cjwoofwoof Thu 18-Jun-15 13:37:16

Ditto to spo and cherin re-emerging from the shadows, and while we're at it, where's mummyreeds and painted and mooj got to?? Come back to us on Thread XX to celebrate you lot!

orphan Thu 18-Jun-15 13:37:30

Good grief, I've been busy this morning with Rupert who decided to trim the bushed round my glorious honeysuckle and I come back to thread XX! Only one away from coming of age and really letting rip!

Welcome Tan and hello again elsie. You've not missed much other than woof's had her annual review but failed it yet again so the curfew and tag remain in place.

pixie I do hope that's not a budget sausage roll. The only sausage roll that passes my lips is 100% pork (no cheap fillers thank you). I reminded dp of our haha escapade and he made a comment about NT members. Which reminds me, I've got a NT sticker that says 'I've been down the Priest's Hole". I wore it with pride all day.

Hi everyone. Been looking at the straw headset pics. I don't think it means anything bad like taking the p**s. I think it's one if the first things me and my friends would do after a few drinks and see straws = headsets (lots of fun).

I'm trying to grab a quick hour to start my next chapter off. My friend who borrowed my OG DVD hasn't given me it back yet when she went away. I suppose she only came back from holiday the other day. Must remember to get it asap having CJ withdrawal symptoms! confused

KellyHb Thu 18-Jun-15 14:19:48

Hi to Tan and welcome back to Elsie. I think I'm the one on here who panics every so often about BA and asks random OG questions every so often that everyone's sick of hearing blush! BTW Elsie I'm looking on strawberry moons website to see the photos but can't find them. What date were they from?

KellyHb Thu 18-Jun-15 14:25:56

Actually found them now. Thanks anyway elsie. Omg! Its like looking at the bulge in HD! Imagine cupping that! Looks like he's got a big phone too grin

KellyHb Thu 18-Jun-15 14:29:08

Nope absolutely no chapter started. Too busy looking at bulge. If I was in a bar that I knew BA was in, I swear I wouldn't be sitting with some blokes in suits-i would be over there like swimwear. grin

orphan Thu 18-Jun-15 15:00:07

Yay, greenstuff's posted Charles' pov for By the Book!

Don't know why but I keep thinking it's Friday. Maybe it was elsie mentioning prosecco. Dp's away tonight and I don't think I can be bothered to cook, so might take ds and dd out for a meal instead and there just might be prosecco on the menu...

woof has your ds finished his A levels yet? Mine has and now that he's here for lunch (gets out of bed just in time) he's clearing out the fridge and filling it with beer. Not usually the most perceptive of boys, he's noticed I seem to be on my tablet a lot though. grin

pixieg1rl Thu 18-Jun-15 15:07:06

I've been invited out to the village pub for what sounds like a mum's drinking club tonight. Apparently last time they drank the pub out of prosecco so one of them went home and brought her own back. I'm a bit nervous, I'm (despite appearances on here) really rather shy and don't like meeting new people IRL. Then of course I start drinking, and you know how I am them....

cjwoofwoof Thu 18-Jun-15 15:23:08

Ditto orph DS has finished last A Level exam this morning and has already gone out with mates "to celebrate" plus to plan tomorrow nights "further celebration" whilst sat in the pub. It's a hard life being 18 with zero plans for the next 50 years.

Haven't quite worked out yet how I'm going to get on the iPad whilst he's not looking, other than in the mornings as he doesn't get out of bed til midday. Think there's going to be an awful lot of Internet shopping to browse through and order over the coming summer months...

Also don't know where I'm going to hide AT, Matthias and Crixus where they won't be discovered either.

Thread XX - unbelievable. We are exactly 8 months minus a day after the final episode was screened.

Welcome back Elsie. I use the "Have some human decency...." still as my morning alarm call. We wondered a while back if you'd fallen by the wayside so very glad to have you back with us. And another newcomer *Tanqueen"! I've seen your reviews on the ff. Welcome to the madness that is the Captain James Appreciation Society with other random odd bits and pieces thrown in!

Ilovelblue Thu 18-Jun-15 16:23:21

That should read Tanqueen. Oops, sorry.

elsie3g Thu 18-Jun-15 16:52:03

Thanks Ilove chuffed to be back in the fold smile

Here's a couple more Twitter pics from Ruby Bentall @RubyBentall (Lark Rise & Poldark) & OliviaHallinan ‏@Livvyloooo (Lark Rise). They're from the end of April. Meant to post a while back, I don't think Ice has posted already, but apologies in advance if these are old hat.

He was obviously out on the razz with with his 'Low Slung' mates...

icemistOBE Thu 18-Jun-15 17:07:48

Can't remember if I posted them... Have you seen his photo in his FB profile elsie
