How good it was to come to Gn this morning to see all the nice, kind, thoughtful threads coming to the fore. I tried to put this on that other thread but obviously didn't say it clearly enough!

So, thank you Gransnetters for all the support on the threads started by Granbunny, nightowl (to name but 2) recently and others in the past, for the daft threads, for the fashion advice, for the recipes, for the political argument, to the pedants and to everyone who has bothered to help me when I have asked. flowers wine brew cupcake sunshine

Couldn't agree more, kittylester!

Yes, we should all be nice to other gransnetters.

Group hug.

Couldn't agree more kitty I went to bed smiling last night after a really fun day on GN. Didn't get a thing done all day but that's a different story! Have to go cold turkey today I think (well I'll try) smile

About time too, nice to get back to normal.
I have enough tension at home to worry about it on here too.

flowers kitty I need cheering up at the moment. Am having a low we all do on occasions.

greenmossgiel Tue 24-Apr-12 13:19:02

Oh dear soop. I hope something soon happens to make you feel better. These days just fall on us, don't they. Tomorrow's another day - it'll be a good one, I'm sure. flowers

glammanana Tue 24-Apr-12 13:25:20

Oh Soop so sorry to hear you have a touch of the blues it will soon pass just a little reminder to your body to slow down and take it easy maybe ? you have had a traumatic few weeks and it affects us all in a different way,oh and by the way the last time I had a serious attack of the blues was 3 days after DS2 was born so think yourself lucky !!! grinflowers

soop Tue 24-Apr-12 13:25:50

You are such a lovely person, greenmossgiel I'm needing a long heart to heart with someone right this minute. sad

soop Tue 24-Apr-12 13:27:10

glammanana Tue 24-Apr-12 13:32:07

soop Tue 24-Apr-12 13:37:07

glassortwo Tue 24-Apr-12 13:49:49

glamma pick me up on the way past, we can call for green then we will all call for a cuppa and a chinwag with soop, we will have her giggling in no time.

kittylester Tue 24-Apr-12 13:50:36

Sorry to hear that soop hope it is just the blues and not something more tangible. Gn is here is you need it. smile((((hugs))))

soop Tue 24-Apr-12 13:51:43

kittylester Tue 24-Apr-12 13:56:53

There might be the odd bit of fisticuffs too so move your best ornaments! grin

soop Tue 24-Apr-12 13:59:33

kitty I've no wish to bore the pants off my GN pals. You all deserve to enjoy a bright sunny day. My sadness hinges on a silly, personal 'family matter' that could so easily be resolved. I expect I'm feeling fragile because my body's been through a trauma...but in my heart of hearts, a brief message from the person about whom I'm feeling so sad, would make all the difference in the world to me. It all sounds so simple, doesn't it?

kittylester Tue 24-Apr-12 14:01:50

Aren't they usually soop. Do they know you are sad?

imjingl Tue 24-Apr-12 14:07:27

Send them a quick text soop? Even just "hello" might get a good response. sunshine

You are bound to be weakened at the moment. Give yourself some looking after if you can.

soop Tue 24-Apr-12 14:09:14

kitty I've spelled it out in a loving, friendly letter, to no avail. I feel as though I'm carrying a big weight around with's deep within my chest.
