Many thanks to Gelico for riding trains for an hour to come visit me and Eddie last night!

She's great company -- a good listener who has something meaningful to say, is honest, thoughtful and just a lot of fun. I think she's funnier in person than on here, maybe (not to say she isn't on here, of course).

It was great meeting you, Gels! But you did get tobacco on my carpet Laughing

What a great night! All of us taking until 7am and what a crazy laugh you have Gels. Loved seeing you and hope to do it again soon.

You’re really a brilliant, real and beautiful human.

And funny as fuck.

Gemini tings. Cool

Glad you had a great time gelico and i would certainly love to meet you as well. As you would have me all night in stitches

Was told myself about coming up for a meet and drink back in Feb by Eddie via PM, though has never happened. Shame really. Guess she forgot.

I live In Ashford, Kent. Ben. Anyway, I thought, I was coming up to meet you? Happy to send if you need.

Have to go over to Ireland for a while, not sure how long as two of my uncles, former boxers. Now have alzheimer's. Which is progressively getting worse and need to be with my family to help. So will remind again when back

Sorry they're doing so poorly. Yeah, we'll figure out the meet-up when you're back; I was just thinking I might like to see Kent because thus far, I really only know some parts of London and a few towns in Essex.

Mate its life and age. No doubt due to an earlier life of boxing, but thanks anyway

Well if you came down here. I would suggest you bring all the family and come to meet in Canterbury for the day. Its a wonderful place and has so much history. Its far more lively than Ashford. You can also get the fast train down. Its a day out for all of you. So happy to do this also when back. You could actually visit "Canterbury tales".

Having been in that position all last year, I wish you well didge, You will need all your strength, and you will need to stay placid for your own sake. Whilst caring for your uncles DONT forget to take the necessary time to care for yourself.

i'm so glad i made it over guys (sorry about my timekeeping and all)

I have to say you are just the same as you are on here and i felt so at home with you both right away. it was a great night.

@ Ben, here's a thought i had when you and edds finally retired to the boudoir (I vaguely remember sinking further and further into your sofa and edds putting a blanket over me) but it never even occurred to me before. I had vaguely assumed that the transition would be easy but

you've left your home land and travelled half way across the world
you've left your family and friends
you've left your job
you've taken over a completely new role as housekeeper which youve never done before

thinking about it the prospect seems quite terrifying and yet,,,,

the house looks imaculate, truly beautiful
you seem to be on first name terms with everyone at tesco
you've won the hearts and minds of two kids of two different genders, two very different ages with completely different needs
you have no friction with their dad
and on top of that you manage to handle even eddie as well

seriously, i don't think there are many guys with the courage and the heart to first of all take that leap and also have the ability to be so damn good at it. This country needs people like you so sending good vibes

edds, thanks for all the whiskey and the loan of your sofa.

it must have been you dropping the baccy. it couldn't have been me. i was on my best behaviour, what with taking my boots off and all and i didn't fart on your sofa, no not even once, so i didn't.

also littlelegs is adorable, she reminded me of a little pixie lol!

Cheeky bitch. Razz

Lovely words to Ben. Thank you x

Gels, thank you so much. This is one thing that's so good about you -- that you can really put yourself into someone's place and see what things must be like for them.

And you don't bullshit, so it means even more -- I know that I can trust that you mean what you said.

That really meant a lot to me.

Its even more complicated than that Gelico

One taught me to box and love to bits, my uncle Brian

The other (Peter) threatened to have me shot if i joined the British army when I was a teen. Of course I never could and failed the medical because of my asthma

He of course supports the IRA

I get on best with his son, Peter and we are very close. So very much mixed emotions Gelico, but he is family and its his children my cousins that I am really there for

Anyway, I am fine, but thank you, more upset for the rest of the family going through this.

Its just a really wierd position to be in in regards to my uncle Pete. Have hated him for years and yet now feel shame, that I did for what he is now going through.

Night

I don't think that there's anyone here that I wouldnt like to meet. The house isn't all that big (but lovely) but I would certainly have the space for a damn big outdoor party even if the entire forum turned up - including 10 acres of woodland for the adventurous (or naughty!).

You would be most welcome. A tour of the estate in a classic vintage Land Rover included! A unique view of a nearby farmhouse that was built when Henry V111 was king as a bonus.
