Wink Something Silly- What r u doing?

OK- as this site has gone down hill i will attempt to start a slightly more light hearted thread.

What silly things is anyone doing to take with them/ remember home by?

My hubbie tapes Pete Tong every Friday night so that when he gets to Australia he can pretend it is still his normal Friday night music!! Very sad but v. important to him!!!

Capital radio in the morning, I will miss Chris Tarrants ramblings.
I cant wait to snigger at the awful weather reports when I am lying by the pool and it is snowing back in the UK! You can get most of the radio stations on your PC via the internet.

Another mad item - PG tips, other bags are not the same !!

PG Tips, Vaseline Intensive Care, and recordings of the 2002 6 Nations.


out of all that - PG Tips and Rugby. The Australians make a shite cup of tea (if you are used to strong tea, that is).

you can listen to Radio 1 over the net - i still have Chris Moyles homesickness sometimes - is he still on air, or have they (comedy dave et al) been booted yet ?

I think I make a pretty good cup of tea myself. Didn't have any complaints from the rellies when they were over a couple of months ago
