This is my beeeeg thank you
What a lovely day
but without the goodwill of everyone and the help of some very able and special people, it would not have gone off as well as it did.
My first thank you is to some one who was not even there.Muhammed
donated a very generous collection of gifts for a lucky draw. He did suggest that Batmad be given something, as he has been such asset to the forum.
It was decided between a group of busy little
that Batmad should receive a quality Leatherman. Enjoy it, Batmad, you deserve it.
It was also decided that the lovely pair of binoculars be donated to the rangers, as they had sent out an SOS about their critical shortage.
That left a lovely tool set, one even MM would have
for and 2 quality camping mugs for our draw on the day.
DB and Zaks did explain the sitation about the binos and everyone seemed very happy with the idea.A beeeg thank you to Sharifa and SO
another Muhommed. I would never have managed without you. Not only that, you went way beyond the requirements asked.
Your Briyani was to die for, the chocolate pudding goes beyond words. Most of all though, you both just ably and willingly set about making this a success.
You might not have noticed, but at some point, my son appeared like a shadow, took one look at the pudding, dived in and disappeared like a shadow.
He was still sitting with a big smile his face hours later.Cherries
you came in and transformed the place from an empty room to a happy setting. You also brought such a cheerful attitude, that the room just lit up.Ndloti
