Happy New Year Everyone!

(Poor 2021, I really hope that it doesn't struggle too much under the weight of expectation.)


Happy 4th Birthday to LadyGracie's 'joyful' Granddaughter Elizabeth.

Happy Birthday to Hellogirl's #3 Daughter Dawn who is 54 (to HG's dismay)

sf101's DDog Cassie is 5 today

And last but least it is BBbevan's and Mrbevan's 54th Wedding Anniversary!

(So if my notes are correct BBbevan was trying the knot at exactly the same time that Hellogirl was giving birth.)

Hope that everyone has a wonderful day! smilethankscupcakewine

Apologies - it's BBbevan's 56th Weddings Anniversary confused
(My first attempt at this aswell. It doesn't bode wellhmm)

Happy Belated Birthday to downtoearth! thanks

LadyGracie Fri 01-Jan-21 10:42:54

Thank you FannyCornforth.
I love your name grin

Best wishes to everyone for the New Year wine

FannyCornforth Fri 01-Jan-21 10:46:09

Thank you LadyGracie!
I like yours. You said on another thread that Gracie was your late cat's name, it's my dog's name too.

I doubt that BBevan would have been getting wed at 6.30am, but Happy Anniversary anyway.

Goodness, Fanny, do you have a notebook with everyone’s details in? shock

FannyCornforth Fri 01-Jan-21 15:54:37

No Lisa! Nothing like that! It was on a scrap of paper. (And I got it wrong anyway confused) You've made me feel dead sinister now blush

Thankyou Fannycornforth

Missfoodlove Sat 02-Jan-21 10:07:47

Goodness, I’m speechless.

Interesting....... I've sometimes seen mail on here referring to matters in the distant past on someone's particular contribution. How/why do people remember? Me? I haven't a clue when I first posted on GN. Unimportant but very glad I stumbled upon it nonetheless. Much useful info has been gleaned as well as simple warm fun stuff. Very partial to my daily dip but I now know when to 'clear off'

FannyCornforth Sat 02-Jan-21 10:45:57

I'm not sure that I understand comments from "Missfoodlove* and Kim
I only know this info because I asked yesterday in a thread if it was anyone's birthday today!
It's in chat.

FannyCornforth Sat 02-Jan-21 10:48:43

Sorry, that was to Lisa aswell.
I gave a lot of thought into doing a daily Birthday thread, I even asked GNHQ about it and they gave it the ok.
I've decided now against it.
Sorry for if I caused any alarm. thanks

FannyCornforth Sat 02-Jan-21 10:55:00

I'm going to ask for this thread to be removed later on

BBbevan Sat 02-Jan-21 17:49:42

Well I was giving birth shortly after Hellogirl. FannyC 🥰🥰🥰

lemsip Sat 02-Jan-21 17:53:13

there was a thread called 'Anyone's Birthday Tomorrow' that lead to this thread that's where the birthdays FannyCornforth mentioned. came from...Both Fanny's threads! FannyCornforth's thread..... Nothing sinister. .
people missed the original thread!
Carry on Fanny, It's a good thread and I have a birthday coming up!

Jaxjacky Sat 02-Jan-21 18:10:16

I have to keep scrolling backwards on the Good Morning thread to acknowledge who’s doing what, even then I sometimes miss someone!

FannyCornforth Sat 02-Jan-21 18:42:54

Thank you lemsip
I think that the idea needs some tweaking, but I'm sure that it's got legs.
I was just trying to do something a bit happy.
Never mind eh!

BBbevan Sat 02-Jan-21 18:44:38

I think you are doing a mighty good job * Fanny*

FannyCornforth Sat 02-Jan-21 20:55:30

Ah, thank you BBb x

LadyGracie Sat 02-Jan-21 21:18:36

Yes Gracie was my cat's name, she was a blue British Short-haired.
I wonder what sort of dog you have Fanny.

lemsip Mon 11-Jan-21 07:39:30

It was my birthday yesterday, sunday. , I suppose people can't get out to get cards, only got two a few days before. hoping a couple may come today. Got flowers from family and a dongle so when I watch you tube or tv on my laptop I can 'send it to my television so watch it on big screen! That when I learn to use it of course! lol

FannyCornforth Mon 11-Jan-21 07:46:33

Wishing you a belated very happy birthday lemsip!smilethanks
I hope that you have a very good year ahead.
As you know, I abandoned this thread (project) but I think that I may resurrect it in a different incarnation

lemsip Mon 11-Jan-21 10:20:07

Thanks Fanny, I knew you'd be there!

FannyCornforth Tue 12-Jan-21 16:14:22

I've started another thread now.
It's called Celebrations Thread #2.
It's for anyone to voice their good news or a special occasion.
Fingers crossed that it catches on! smile
