TA, it was Maureen from South Devon on Sep 21 2009.

She was the first to post (after myself) in the Hello, my name is . . thread.

Sadly, after 18 posts, she has not posted since Jan 2010.

Thanks for that Danny.  You must have access to archived threads, I tried the link and got Error 404.  Shame that some people drop out.  Mind you, if everyone stayed chatting there would be too many threads and responses to monitor.

I'll try that again!

No archived threads, Toni. I made a mistake with the link. Corrected now.

As I have been missing in action for a while I better give you lovely guys an update big_laugh

I am still smoking stuff, cheese, garlic etc and still playing with my sous vide waterbath, i did a rolled lamb joint the other day for friends, it went down a storm lol.

 

On a more personal note I gave the **** company I work for, G4S, the order of the Spanish Archer.... El Bow devil

Apart from getting royally 9155ed off with their managerial  bullying tactics they threw away what was thought to be a multi million pound contract for the want of spending a mere £40,000 on equipment and training, oh and insisting on  a 5 year contract which was never on the cards.

Anyway in October I jumped ship and joined the company that now does the work for the contracts that G4S lost. Getting paid a couple of grand more and actually earning a regular bonus.

I feel a damn site less stressed and feel a lot better and happier which has been noted by friends, even if  have been working down on the south coast a lot; Southampton,  Portsmouth, Bognor (Bugger that) and Chichester etc and well as in the regular RG postcode areas.

 

I really must try to keep in touch with the forum and contribute a lot more. ok

Indeed you must, we are very short of men here.  I am happy to hear your news, it is always good to have more money and less stress.

I'll try that again!
