Don't be shy then Terry, join in as much as you like.  

Joanna, Danny is trying to cut out some smileys due to space problems so I doubt he'd want to add any.  It is a good one though.





 

I'll try that again!

I know he is, he mentioned that just before I left for Oz but I am sure he could elbow one to make room for it smug

Hello there, I love the 'group hug', yes, I agree with Joanna, this is a must for an addition to the 'Smileys' !

Danny it's up to you now........Isn't it clever of Terry to introduce the group hug?

Terry, you and I both share the same passion of having our own "smallholding"......However in the mean time we can still enjoy the experience, dilemmas, triumphs & day to day pleasure of experiencing all the wonderful people on the Forum, Danny & Fiona of course for allowing us to share their personal day to day running of their smallholding.  Isn't it just great here, that so many lovely people allow us to enjoy this, aren't we lucky?  Who knows, perhaps one day.....if not we can dream, enjoy and share all that goes on and pick up amazing ideas & tips on everything, we are among a very special group of people so they all deserve a big star,cheers,big_hug & thank you!

Cherio for now, Odelle. welldone wave

Morning Toffeeapple,
 

Go on, try to persuade Danny to cut out one of the others to add the 'group hug', it's good isn't it?

Cheeky thing aren't I, asking you to do the asking¦..I blame it on the jokes that I read earlier on, put in a happy mood and must've made me bold or just very forward¦..whistle wave

I run 33 acres in Latvia only it is under a few feet of snow at the moment. We don't have any animals yet but we are working on that. Maybe this year or maybe next year - depends on what we get organised but the veg will be going in and hopefully we can keep the wild boar off the plot. whistle

........Indeed Odelle I feel quite privileged to be able to share the comments of the day to day running of a smallholding......and all the other stuff, but I feel a twinge of guilt as I know I will be taking a lot more from this forum than I could ever put back in.

 

It's sometimes annoying to see animated pictures jumping about on a post but when I saw the group hug smiley....it put a big smile on my face........I hope I haven't caused a riot by including it in my last post.

Joanna, wow!  33 acres, how fantastic that is, it will be so good to hear all about it, I can't wait!
 

You are a extremely hard-working, talented lady, if any-one can make a success of it, it's got to be you!  You never cease to amaze me with your zest for life, your energy, you're a lovely lady, that comes from the bottom of my heart.   I am so pleased to have 'met you' and all the other wonderful people that are so thoughtful and kind on this forum.

It's just as well that they are, with some of the questions that I keep asking¦..
