So, I was wondering, since chats like this are really nice (and fun too!), but kind of out of place on certain threads.... 

Is there any way cottage smallholder forum could do live chat?

Not just start a topic and watch to see who jumps in?

I have no idea how much effort that would take, but it would be very cool!

If you can't be a shining example, be a terrible warning!

I guess problem for that would be timing. Most folks seem to do lots of chatting after I have gone to bed as I am 2 hours ahead of UK time and I am guessing that is going to get even worse in the summer months. Still would be fun from time to time.Cheers

TA, I was in the garden!

Mowed both lawns in the company of a tantrumming toddler (amongst other things his little watering can mysteriously spilled water all over him - ooops!), checking the banana cake, fairy cakes and oaty biscuits were fairing ok in the oven and figuring out what to feed said tantrummer for his tea.

Needless to say, last night was a definite Sloe night Sloe_GinSmile aaaaaaah.

Today is Monday and I'm sat at my desk at work having a REST!!!!Big_LaughBig_LaughBig_Laugh

As long as you are all still alive!  

Michelle, as Joanna says, the time difference might make that difficult and I'm rarely here after 8.00pm as that is when I go to OH's house to eat.  Nice thought though.

Sarah, did you placate your little one with cake? Big_Laugh

I'll try that again!

I just had a thought - don't all faint - how about a CSH Facebook page?  Or would that not work?? Anyone know?

I'll try that again!

I know what you mean Suz, I'm not a fan either but if people want a place for 'real time' chat..it was the first thing that came into my head.

I'll try that again!

Hello! *waves*

On Sunday I was in England. I flew over on Friday and back on Monday.

I visited friends, went to a wedding and had a simply wonderful time. I was in Barrow, Salhouse, Blofield and Wroxham and spent so much time pointing at duck ponds, thatched cottages and flint churches and exclaiming how quaint they all were. Lovely, lovely part of the country.

I'm with you Suz, I have avoided getting on facebook so far, much to my husband's dismay.

And I don't know if anyone else feels like I do about the live chat idea.

Maybe a new thread "poll" and ask if anyone else would be intrested?

Nigel your Facebook pictures are priceless.  Big_Laugh

I've had a very busy two days which I might get round to posting on tomorrow, but right now, as everyone else is either sleeping or busy, I'm away to bed with a new book.  It is called Deaf Sentence by David Lodge.  Has anyone read it?

It is quiet - you can't all be in the garden - it's been raining all damn day!  (Here anyway. Roll_Eyes)
