• This week I was at a book fair and saw a book by a comedian I used to see on Tv. In the book he explains how he was accused of sexual assault by two women, both of which were obviously fabricated. Then 10 others crawled out of the woodwork and I saw crawled because as he explains the claims were totally rubbish and the stories were full of…[Read more]

    I think Ive caught it…

    Yesterday for no apperent reason I felt the urge to wash down every door and every skirting board in the house. I did a deep clean of the bathroom and downstairs loo from light fittings to floor and today the loft is getting a good clean out..Ive taken the winter duvet off the bed and hung it out to air and Im busy…[Read more]

  • cassandra replied to the topic Hi all! New here! in the forum Introductions 1 week ago

    Hello and welcome I think you will find a very supportive and positive group here.

  • Sad but I totally agree with the other ladies such a toxic and obviously unstable person is better off out of your life.

    It does sound as if she has issues regarding her relationship with you, she wants you to be single so that your nearest point of comfort and support is her and she will stop at nothing to make sure that happens..

    Thats abuse..…[Read more]

  • I agree with @rabbithabit.  But, on the flip side isnt better that we know how Rhonda feels? After all do we really want to waste time and effort befriending and supporting someone who turns out to have such reprehensible beliefs. Isnt it better we know now so that we can take the action each one of us feels appropriate when faced with such…[Read more]

  • Sadly its always been one rule for the rich and another for the poor.. The same goes in the UK if you have a posh name or posh family..

    Many a titled student would not have his/her place if her last name had simply been Smith or Brown but a famous name attracts other famous names and with them comes the money that many of these schools need to…[Read more]

  • cassandra replied to the topic Online shopping in the forum The Lab 1 week, 1 day ago

    We do quite a lot of online shopping mostly from stores we know and trust but which are simply too far away to make it worth while going there physically. OH brews his own beer so we order all the supplies online . I do all my photos online too. Shoes are difficult because my feet are not ‘standard’ but we recently got a great deal on winter coats…[Read more]

  • I think each couple is different . My OH and I talked through all kinds of things before we decided to try for a baby. One of our factors was that OH’s father and mother were well over 30 when he was born. Now days thats not such an issue but back then people seemed to age quicker and OH says he can only remember his father as an ‘old man’ his…[Read more]

  • I cant remember when I joined it was  ages ago, before 2009 in anycase.

    People come and go the user base has changed, Ive been away for a long while and only recently popped back in.

    This is the only forum Ive stayed a member of for so long, most of the advice the ladies give comes from the heart and is genuine. Normally there is no backbiting…[Read more]

    We havent heard too much about this where I live  (he isnt a star here) but I think the justice dept has taken a step in the right direction.

    People who make false claims / report fake crimes should be punished. These kinds of fake (not mistaken id or anything) reports can ruin innocent peoples lives and make it much more difficult for real…[Read more]

  • Hi there… Congratulations..  Im looking at your hobbies and  thinking about how you would  incorperate that to a themed wedding,, Harry Potter does ballroom blitz? Just joking..


    Look forward to hearing more about you and your plans..

    @SpinningJen  I love family photos too I have lots  including a whole set of old black and white ones of parents  grandparents and great grandparents.

    This one was such a wow moment for us though,  we were walking at a nature reserve when Murphy started to growl.. He never does that when we are out so OH and I stared into the mist and this fig…[Read more]

    It looks very comfortable. What sort of art work do you like?

    I have a a grey tint photo of some steps that were in a French castle we visited and Im just waiting for a canvas to be delivered for another wall. Also in blue/grey tones I took this shot last year. I just find it very peaceful

    @KitKatKitty if a soul is that part of you that lives on in the memory of others after you’ve gone then yes dogs have souls. I’ve always had dogs around me and when our last boy Benny, died at age 15 some people advised against another dog because OH isn’t well but life without dog was just empty,cold and colourless. So Murphy came into our lives…[Read more]

    I must admit I was expecting to hear border collie due to his colour and I was being a little unfair in asking you all to guess because Murphy is one of the worlds rarest dog breeds. He is a Friese Stabijhoun ,there are only a few thousand worldwide so most people have never heard of them although there are some in both the UK and the USA.

    He is…[Read more]

  • cassandra replied to the topic Recent Photos in the forum General Chat 3 weeks ago

    Thanks @Mamie. Would it be fun if I asked people to guess what he is?


    A clue: he’s not a designer cross he is a pure breed…

  • If I were dating personality honesty and decency would count far more than colour.

    Someone like you would  not cross my door this side of hell.

  • cassandra replied to the topic Recent Photos in the forum General Chat 3 weeks ago

    Ok well as you asked … This is Murphy,

  • If you are offended by the idea of two consulting adults enjoying a loving relationship you need to seek help .

    I have to say your attitude and comments disgust me.


  • cassandra replied to the topic Recent Photos in the forum General Chat 3 weeks, 1 day ago


    The only photos I take these days are nature and my dog… Not sure you all want a thousand photos of a scruffy dog!
