I'm glad you had a good Christmas.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> So are you originally from Portugal?<BR><BR>I would figure it would be hard to meet everybody you wanted to at the Gathering. It was huge! If only I could have gone. Maybe the next one they have.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Christmas wasn't all that special for me. We didn't have a tree up or anything so it didn't really feel like Christmas to me. My parents and I went over to some family's house and ate dinner with them and hung out for a while. We did make margaritas after dinner which made everyone feel better.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> Basically, I was missing Iavas. It's hard to have someone you love 4,000 miles away on a special day like that.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> We did get to talk on the phone though which did help.<BR><BR>Tonight, my comp will be keeping me company.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-rolleyes.gif"border=0> I haven't really done much for any of the holidays. Maybe next year.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>I hope all in the Parlour have a wonderful New Years!<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>

Eru : I am sorry that it wasnt that festive for you but I do understand that you must be missing lavas like crazy .. personally I just couldnt do it - my hubby and I were apart at the beginning of our relationship but he was only 140 odd miles away so we could always see each other at weekends .. being that far apart must be murder and I take my hat off to you both <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Dave : re Liverpool .. well at the moment it is not looking good. basically I pushed myself too hard with the Gathering and with Christmas and am feeling extremely tired. Getting up 3 days a week at 5.50am is not helping and this baby is far more energy draining than William was. Hubby is really not happy for me to go when I will be almost 33 weeks, especially driving up all that way, so it is looking like I am going to have to pull out <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> .. I will be mailing Darin and co tonight to let them know .. and posting on the thread of course .. trust me no one is more upset than me .. but this baby is more important I am afraid !

<i>this baby is more important I am afraid ! </i><BR><BR>Titch I totally agree, though it would be great if you could make it. But health and a happy husband must come before a group of mad TORCers... You will be missed, BTW Ben is a great name for a Boy... Strong and proud name!<BR><BR>Eru: I will ask you a question because I know oyu can do it, how do you rename links etc if you know what I mean?

I'm so sorry to hear that Teherin.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> I was looking forward to getting to meet you. But I'll echo Ben in that the baby is more important. You need to take care of yourself and the baby and if a long trip wouldn't help, then you shouldn't go. It's still such a shame though. Just be careful and get yourself better!<BR><BR>Ben, do you mean links like I have in my sig instead of just putting the url there? If so use this, but take out the spaces.:<BR><BR>[ URL =http://www.me.com]My Website[ /URL ] <BR><BR>You can find this under the 'special symbols' link you see when replying to a thread. Where it says 'My Website', type in whatever you want the link to be named. Paste the url in place of the http: //www.me.com.<BR><BR>Hope this answers your question.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Teherin: Hopefully you'll be able to make it to the next moot then.<BR><BR>Actually I will be coming near London. I'm flying into and departing from Gatwick. But, I do believe that Iavas and me were going to spend a day or two in London so I can do the tourist/sightseeing thing. I really can't say for sure, but maybe meeting for a lunch might work? It's a possibility.<BR><BR>Dave, you know it's all playful banter.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> We do it because we like you...and it's fun.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Yup, I could undertand him Darin. Are southerners hard to understand for you?<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>

I am trying to get some rest but that is hard with a toddler at home <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> basically during the weekend it is near on impossible for me to have time to post as I just dont get the chance to sit down in front of the PC and concentratet - by the time Wills has gone to bed I have supper to cook and spending time with hubby is always important too <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> So I tend to limit my TORC time to work !<BR>Re meeting up .. well let me know when you plan to spend some time in London .. cos I work in London 3 days a week so meeting up for lunch would be cool <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Letora : great to see you <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> Glad to hear you like ROTK .. I did too and am hoping to see it again for my BD <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0><BR><BR>And trust me, they are FAR worse in the flesh <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0>

Teherin: I bet it's tough dealing with a toddler. My sympathies!<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0> Hope you'll be able to cope with a new born and a toddler! Is your husband pretty good about helping out?<BR><BR>I'll let you know about London. I can't be sure when we'll be there and the days that we are there might be on the weekend. But I'll keep my fingers crossed.<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Dave: You seem proud of the fact that you are a major TOS violator in real life!<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif"border=0>
