We Need More People Posting!!

Postby CP » 23 Apr 2016, 12:51

If this forum is to survive, more members will need to help keep it alive by posting more often. PLEASE!

I know I haven't been posting much either but there's never usually anyone on here except me & half a dozen 'guests'. Though we have new members joining, no one is posting anything much.

I have been a bit pre-occupied in the last few weeks as my mother had a house fire & I have had to deal with all the insurance & everything else! She is currently living with me temporarily & that is also keeping me busy!

I still look in every day though. ;)
Happy in Hampshire!

Agree. Just retrieved a new password. I post regularly on FB but admit I often neglect this wonderful resource which I tend to use via the archives if I have an issue. Will make a post of FB later reminding others to post. Must update my footer too as we had to cull No. 6 recently

Well that's worked.....NOT! :roll:

Isn't there anyone who used to post a lot in times past, who wouldn't like to see this forum buzzing again?
I know Facebook has taken a lot of our members to the 'dark side'! LOL!
But it wouldn't take much to get things going here again if enough members contributed. [-o<

I am waiting for the day we move house and all the other stress has gone so i can get back to posting on here and my other forum... SO stressed at the moment that i dont feel like i have anything to talk about apart from doomy stuff.... dont even see real life friends any more as I am scared I will bore them with the rubbish in our lives.

I need to move house and get hens again.... I need the good life back... 2016 so far has been an ass hat of a year...

Hope things get better for you soon MamaOwl. ;)

My news isn't as bad as yours but my household has been turned upside down this last month since my mum had a house fire. Having your mother living with you is not ideal, especially as she smokes & the rest of us do not.... a real bone of contention, let me tell you!

Also having to deal with all the 'fallout' is doing my head in! Though I must say the insurance people so far have been fabulous. :grin:

Unfortunately not as she has mobility problems & we have steps to the outside. :(
She's using the conservatory which contains it a bit but the whole house will need fumigating! :shock:

I wish! I got a very firm "No!" from her when I suggested it. :roll:

Been trying for over 40 years to get her to stop....don't think she ever will as she's in her 80's now.

oh dear... it would probably be a shock to her system anyway now...

What's happening with her house? Will she be rehomed or will she now stay with you? Perhaps convert a garage into a granny flat?

The insurance she had ensures it will be returned back to how it was before, just with newer things, so ripe for selling! She'll probably be going into a warden-controlled flat now. But the sale will have to fund that so she will probably be here until then...several months! It would be fine except for her smoking.....thinking we may have to get an extractor fan or something installed. :roll:

Do you have a good relationship with her? Perhaps if you said it really bothered you all then she might conceded and try an Ecig? Or something else?

My hubby smokes (outside only) but the smell on clothes alone is horrid.... I think i might be worse because I am an ex smoker though... (2003)

Congrats on the job - every little helps!

My brother has just bought me an air purifier/ioniser machine to help with the smoking smell. Arrived today & haven't got it working just yet. Hoping it will be able to cope with it all!! [-o<
