Voting Is OPEN!



Good evening everyone, Paul here posting on behalf of Barbara!

Barbara and Dave are currently driving through France to enjoy some time out and have a bit of a break after a manic few weeks and to celebrate Dave's Birthday.

I must say that when I popped round to see them both on Tuesday evening, every room in the house was full of some amazing birthday cards - it was like walking into an art gallery - so much talent and creativity!

Anyway, some mega mega mega exciting news!

  30. Hi
    I've voted

    Been thinking about you today Dot. And I've had my disco ball thing on today which made me think of Amy too. I think I've got the video capture software sussed for recording Barbara on your laptop. Let me know when you're ready and I'll try work out how to explain what you need to do, it's really easy to do a simple record, it's trying to explain it in words that will be hard!

    hi everyone else

    Hope Barbara and Dave have a great break away
