Good evening ladies...and gentlemen, of course!
I am a long time lurker. I think my username is 'Sickofweddingcake' which reflects for marriage...(having two marriages...and one engagement behind me).
What is the story regarding your user name?
Please forgive me if I have posted in the wrong place. X

A favourite fishing dry fly. Tiny but deadly - a bit like me grin.

Well I always imagined you weilding a grey duster as you did the housework! No idea there was a connection with fishing!

Been Willow for ages in various places - when I joined here a couple of years ago it added the 500 - I noticed today there's a Willow10 now too.

Like others all the names I chose were already taken so I had to think of one quick. I am a bit of a pedant for spelling and grammar but also enjoy a drink, in moderation of course. I'm enjoying this thread smile

I was enrolling and had just seen an ad for wellie boots covered in daisies. Another choice would be Fag Ash Lil as no one would ever connect it to me as I have never smoked.

My name is half my full name and the bach my grandfather added on when I was a baby because it’s Welsh for small, sweet for a baby, but not when I became a 5’7” adult but it has stuck

Mine dates back years, to when I was beset by dementia in the family - it seemed entirely appropriate at the time.
Was too lazy to think of another when joining GN - one I use for a very different forum wouldn't have seemed suitable.

Mine is a mixture of my first name and the Latin word for what was my maiden name
