HI Guys, Rob has asked me to start a blog for him. If you want to see what he is up to have a look in the blog section.
Dont know why but it doesnt show up in the 'New Posts' bit for some reason?

I told him he has to back for my Birthday on 15th July or else! notfunny.gif ranting.gif mad.gif Who knows where he will go....................will keep you posted (or should that be 'blogged' ?)

Updated tonight from yesterdays and today's ramblings.

Its hard to decipher what he is actually saying from a short text-its like some sort of code. ohmy.gif

Manx meant 'Molehills (I think) and 'Molds' means Moles (hopefully) 'Dirt' meant 'first' . 'Mig' must mean 'night'...........I just have to try to work words out in the context of the sentence and hope........................ dunno.gif
