I quit the smoking habit aka addiction in 1996 after having smoked since 1958. Had a couple of lapses at first have now been ciggy free for 20 years. Can't tolerate the smell of them now.
They were £3.72 a pkt when I quit, must be a tenner now. Me and my clothes must have stunk

I smoked for a short time when I started work they were 23 pence a packet when I quit as I found out I had asthma brought on by growing up in a house with family of 6 and 4 smoked

Yes.  Of course itís good to see Val back.  Itís just it brings back memories of Belfast Girlie flirting with all you boys.  When I got back on again it was Freda who?

Left a princess and came back to Freda who?  But then thatís men for you.

Aw.  I wish you hadnít been snapped up so quickly, Jimmy

I reserved a new dog for myself today.  I had to drive all the way to Moira on my own using Google Maps.  When I arrived at the place I felt like a big girl and Iím still only 21.  I went up onTuesday to see the dog, had a home check on Thursday and had to go back again today.  I will have to go again to collect her sometime next week.  She has to be spayed and kept for a couple of days.

Sheís a black four year old cocker spaniel and she is completely traumatised.  She is from a puppy farm and has been bred from.  When she arrived at the shelter she just stared at walls, but now she bothers with the other dogs BUT NOT PEOPLE.  She wonít walk at all on the lead.  She just wonít budge.  She has never been socialised with people.  I had my dogs out the first time I went and her tail wagged, but with me nothing.   
[size=78%].  Well Iím an animal lover and Iím 100% against any form of animal cruelty and I was looking for a black female cocker from an animal shelter.  People think you do it to save money but believe me you do it to see the dog change into a happy confident relaxed dog which is what she should be in the first place.[/size]

It is rediculous the price of dogs now.  I saw a french bulldog on Gumtree for £3000 because his coat was lilac.  Mind you I spent a good part of that trying to buy Bronte more time although I knew it couldnít  save her.  I would have liked a younger dog but beggars canít be choosers.

You need the insurance Jimmy. There was a lot of sad and sorry girls out there when you got married Jimmy. They were sad for Pat  :P :P :P
Have t been to a game this season Jimmy and I didnít renew my season or premier seat tickets. Blues have a big enough squad to see the likes of Coleraine off. Bad result indeed.
