    Hi Dina;

    What's great about this thread, is I think you were just trying to have a bit of positively from a very negative situation.

    You were really down and a lesser person would have just buried themselves under the blankets.

    Yes we tried to support you but it's your strength that got you through.

    So hopefully, " Celebrate the GOOD THINGS ", will have a good result very soon.

    Hugs Terry

    Thanks, Terry.

    Youíre partly right about why I began this thread but I hope members will use it to help them to get through days when they may be struggling or to help and encourage others to try to find something positive in their lives.

    Trying to keep positive, but not always managing.

    Hi Dina,

    We could have a forum-family welcome home celebration for you Dina!

    I was thinking about a 1970's themed party (as so many forum members remember the 1970's so well!...naming no names! LOL).

    As Barry is such a sweetie, there will be a sweet trolley with Black Forest Gateau and Crepes Suzette.

    A savoury buffet is essential too (especially as Lynne much prefers savoury to sweet food) - and I will ensure it includes vegetarian options for Andy and Ellie.

    Perhaps cheese fondue, prawn cocktail, cheese & pineapple on sticks and vol-au-vents would be 1970's enough?! (I had to make a bit of a guess about that, because I was just a toddler back then! LOL).

    One of Sugar Daddy's sugar-babes is bringing her candy cart, with everyone's favourites.

    ... including Kit-Kats for Sheila, chilli-chocolate and Mars for Doug, fruit & nut snacks for Terry, and Snowflake bars for Ellie (it seems like Sugar Daddy has a contact at Cadburys who has a secret stash of them LOL). And for you Dina, there will be plenty of Caramacs!

    .... also, undoubtably, Doug will be arriving with a box of Milk Tray, especially for you!

    At the bar, there will be plenty of fine wine & vintage champagne (especially for Doug) - which will include, of course, a bottle or two of Barry's favourite Italian wine!

    ... and I don't think a 1970's party would be complete without Mateus Rose! (not exactly fine wine, but the empty bottles can make quite attractive candle holders!). Someone might enjoy 1970's 'home brew'? (and It will definitely be well brewed by now!! LOL).

    A barista will serve Costa Coffee - and, of course, there will be lots of extra portions of cream available, especially for Terry.

    ...and I think I read, Dina, that you sometimes like milk to drink? - the barista assures me that there will be plenty available, and it can be served at whatever temperature you request!

    I'll keep the champagne on ice -and, don't worry, I'll leave ALL my corn at home! LOL

    .... but I can't promise that, when I start to pour the champagne, plenty of my bubbly-banter won't be freely flowing too! LOL

    ... and I have booked 'Big Gees Music Thread' to provide the entertainment! LOL

    Love Kayleigh x

    PS Mr Cornelius (of Corny's Corn-venience Store) said he'll provide the floral decorations - bunches of Cornish cornflours! (Oops ... I'm sure he meant cornflowers! LOL) And he asked me to pass on his many corn-gratulations about your good news!

    Hi Kayleigh,

    You have been reading my recipes as I am cooking a birthday meal for our daughter tonight. If someone can pick Dina up and you all can get here by 7pm, everyone is welcome. Not sure if Ellie and CC have time to make it. We start with scallops and Stornaway black pudding, followed by shank of veal (Italian style) and finish of with chocolate torte. Drinks are English fizz (often better than champagne) , Italian wine of my daughter’s choosing and a red dessert wine. I will sit on my walker to cook and transfer to my wheelchair before drinking (safety first).

    Please keep promoting those lovely sweet things as it boosts my pension lol. I almost forgot the music so here’s something from the 70’s https://youtu.be/6GxWmSVv-cY

    Better go now as I have lots to do.

    Love,
    Barry
    Iím going to do this even if it kills me!

    Breaking news Barry! - the 'Man from Michelin' says "Not only are you Nottinghamshire's most charming Italian Stallion! - you are also an excellent chef and host too!

    Furthermore, (and without the need to sugar-coat it!) ....

    La Trattoria 'La Casa di Barry' has been awarded - a grand total of 203 Michelin Stars!!".

    Yes, the maximum is usually 3 - but an extra 100 stars were awarded for your Trattoria always being 100% sweet-smelling (including the Chef and the ambiance!) - Plus, a bonus 100 stars, were awarded for being 100% sugar-friendly'! LOL

    ... and, it goes without saying, that anyone dining at 'Casa Di Barry', is always greated with the warmest of welcomes and sweetest of smiles - from the resident Sugar Daddy!

    I enjoyed listening to the song you posted a link to - thank you - That was very 'Amore-ly' of you! ...

    I hope you and you family have a wonderful time celebrating your daughter's Birthday - Buon Appetito!

    And, if you would like a sprinkling of corn with your desserts LOL ...

    Love and best wishes to you all,

    P.S Very good move to sit on your walker while you are doing the cooking! By the way, your Trattoria also achieved the highest ratings for hygiene - and health and safety too!

    Hi Ellie,

    As you probably know, I'm a big fan of cartoons (and I like watching them, almost as much as I enjoy quiz shows)!!

    I know it's a bit naughty of me not to wait until the party, but I got so excited when you mentioned those 1970's cartoons, I couldn't resist taking a cheeky peak at one of the your videos! I always wanted a car like Penelope Pitstop's (I think the built in features would be perfect for me - and I could definitely do with that very handy lipstick applicator she has!) LOL

    I'm feeling a bit peckish now, so think I'll phone 'Deliveroo' to order one of these ....LOL....

    Love

    Remember those firemen you saw outside the hospital Dina?

    The good news is that I've managed to track them down again, and they are looking just as cute! (and even more hunky than the last time we saw them!) LOL

    LOL that's funny Kayleigh. It makes you realize how for we've come with CGI.

    I do remember the Banana Splits Dina, didn't know they were in the UK as well.
