Christine42 is 365 today

Well well well.....while my back was turned our Christine has sneaked into the Penthouse without having her name properly crossed of on the clipboard.:eek:

Naughty naughty Christine

well there is no way that one of the most supportive members of our group is

getting in here without a proper post..she says she doesn't want a fuss but we all know it is just that this posting lark takes up valuable drinking time. :p

Seriously....I for one would not be here with the steadfast support of this lady...we have laughed, cried, cursed and praised together all the way to the Penthouse. She will say I dragged her but trust me there were many many times when our Christine grabbed me by the scruff of the neck, gave me a good talking to, and kept me on the straight and narrow.

So well done my lovely....I know this has not been easy for you.

You are undoubtedly the most honest and straight talking person I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. Here is to the next years smoke free Hun.....its a year nearer the nuring home when we can light up again.....:D

Love you loads....xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    Christine is out drinking and celebrating now ...... no cooking, again! I'm bloody positive she doesn't even have a kitchen. Oh.....hang on! Giblets left in bird one Festive season ... Christine just doesn't know what to with a kitchen :p

    365? And not looking a day younger either :p

    Seriously, you have to have a mention and recognition for a year quit. The fun and humour you bought to our group this time last along with good honest support deserves a place on these boards.

    I personally hold you responsible for my increased drinking ..... but not the pink wine......no no no. Following a time of quit our sense of taste is meant to improve. Yours went from red to pink :eek: Lorna and I discussed this at great length ............... over red.

    Christine, thank you for the laughs and the support. Lock your doors well tonight ..... Lorna and I are in the car with clipboard .............. and wine :D

    Love Pol xx

  • Giblets left in bird one Festive season ... Christine just doesn't know what to with a kitchen :p

    Ahem.....actually it was me that left the giblets in the turkey one Christmas (I was 16 in my defence) :o

    Christine was trying to be posh and cook duck when she left them in. Common as muck really..:rolleyes:

    Ok where are the pink wine dens in the Lakes...;)

  • Well done Christine you have been such a rock for us all, it has been made so much easier with you egging us on when we think of stumbling. Its absolutly fab that you ve crossed into the penthouse with us WELL DONE HUN XXX

  • I am so so so so chuffed for you Christine. As the others have said you are a rock to us, I love your non judgemental way and your straight talking. You, Pol and Lorna were like the 3 birds off birds of a feather (you can decide amongst yourselves who is who) ha ha! :-):) very entertaining though.

    MASSIVE CONGRATULATIONS. I am well proud of you.:D

    Loves ya

    Tinks (minime):) xxxx

  • Tinks:eek:

    Think of another trio and quick, that comparison is not Board Wonder Bra'ish at all ................. be quick about it or you get the clipboard round the ear. OOG or not ...... your never out of being clip-able...... ;)

    I refuse to be any of those 3 ...... out and out refuse ..... do you hear me :p

    I may just have to request a line of limbo for that :D

  • Well done Christine..... so strong for all of us (and strangely scarey too). So congrats for your 12 months ...

  • Hi, big Congratulations Christine, have been waiting off and on all day for you to post this it deserves to be celebrated. Hope your special day was one to remember.

  • Are you trying to make me cry (you know I'm as hard as nails!!).

    I was trying to sneak in the back door and happily sit in the corner with my glass of wine, but I forgot about the bloody Lorna!! (love her as I do).

    I had a lovely day yesterday, I was lucky enough for friends to buy me cards and presents as a well done and my gorgeous hubby bought me flowers and took me out for a meal. I did however in return buy him an 18 year old single Malt (Scottish too Lorna!!), because he put up with the wife from hell. If I start smoking again, these people will not be happy!:eek:

    Seriously if I had known how hard it was going to be to stop smoking, I would never have bothered and that is the honest truth. I still do not like my weight gain or my intolerant attitude BUT I do like the fact that I am not controlled by an addiction and I smell very nice (have a sniff!!).:D

    The Octo gang (even though not pretty!:D) were my strength and savours especially in the first 6 months and it was a total pleasure being part of such a fantastic gang of people. However I must say a special thank you to Pol, who is the most caring woman I've met and so much fun. I would also like to thank Tinks who has the most amazing strength and showed huge support even though she was struggling herself.

    Finally I must thank 'our' Lorna who is one of the quirkiest person I've ever met (besides from myself), but who is my rock, my partner in crime and my friend.

    Right that is way too much soppiness, as you all know I do not have a maternal bone in my body and I do not want you all thinking I’m going soft in my old age.

    Love you all xxxx (sniff, cry, sniff)

  • Finally I must thank 'our' Lorna who is one of the quirkiest person I've ever met

    QUIRKY....??????????.:eek::eek:

    We agreed you would say young, stunning, caring, funny, generous, intelligent, strong, wise, sharing, fit, sparkling, blonde Godess.....

    QUIRKY....!!!

    Pol....cancel Nicole looks like it is Lisa after all....:D

  • I'm very sorry I missed the post yesterday Christine, better late than never though. Well done and congratulations on your first year.

  • Ha! Always one to make me smile. Raises many glasses in your direction. Very well done to you xxx

  • QUIRKY....??????????.:eek::eek:

    ...but people would wonder who the hell I was on about:D

    Thank you people, (takes a little bow and falls over due to wine intake). xx

  • And about time too Christine! :p

    Congrats on a year - and did you know, if you put wine in a sodastream then it makes it like champagne? And if you use pink wine it makes pink champagne! :D

  • yeah!!! CONGRATULATIONS XXXX

  • Well done christine and thanks for all the laughs !

    Louise

  • Oo, MadCatWoman... that's the best DIY drinks advice I've heard in a looong time!

    Guess what Sofia's doing tonight...

  • Umm Sofia - make sure you step back slightly when you unscrew the bottle! ;)

  • Well done Christine - and thanks for the laughs along the way. I never doubted for a minute that you'd do it.

    Sue

  • Christine

    Sorry I'm late (don't get on here that much as I'd like).

    Huge congratulations on 1 year adn welcome to the Penthouse.

    Great news.

    AG

  • :)Well Done Christine

    Great news that you have made it, I know it was tough, but so pleased for you. Thanks for all the great posts.

    Enjoy the freedom

    Dee xxx;)

  • Massive congrats on a job well done!!:):D

  • OH god I'm so sorry I missed this. Been a bit busy...going to Cadiz (where I spent my 1 year but forgot about it!!!), looking after grandchildren, trying to hobble on my painful feet, doing Choi Kwang Do (don't bloody laugh either!), and trying to do The Harcombe Diet which is fantastic (but the chocolate still gets in the bloody way now and then :( )

    Anyway, enough of me, you've done brilliantly Christine and you were one of a few who got me through my first year (hubbie did but only cos he didn't kill me whilst I hurled continuous abuse at him! ). I'm still a bit on the manic side and like you, if I had known what it was going to do to me I would never have bothered. I actually don't like me anymore...I really get on my own tits most of the time but still can't seem to do anything about it. Still haven't found anything that can replace that 'going off in a huff to have a fag' moment! Instead I just stay and rant lol. God....I've still gone on about me!!!

    Ok, I'll leave it at that .... but I'll just say you had me in stitches on here on more than one occasion and I thank you for that, it definitely helped to keep me slightly sane! :D

  • Ha, ha. JJ, you never fail to make me laugh :p

    Such a JJ post :D

  • Congrats on your one year milestone, Christine! Well done!!!
