Must stop eating these Maltesers or I'll have to grease my sides to get through the door.
@PaulDuxbury Maybe not LOL Or maybe he's trying to throw us off the scent.

@PaulDuxbury It's rumoured it might be Billy Piper - it would make a nice change to have a girl in the role.

Getting back into the swing of things after the Christmas break. Hope everyone enjoyed the day, and Happy New Year!
RT @Lord Matt Did you know that the UK gave out grants for digitising old documents? http://www.businesslink.gov.uk/bdotg...
Must go and sort out my recycling, I think they pick it up tomorrow.
@Landailyn I saw a documentary about trial by ordeal. Apparently, it was seem as more humane than the blood feuds it replaced.
@Landailyn The evidence was so flimsy, it seems ludicrous now, but then it must have been terrifying to be accused.
@Landailyn Whereabouts in England where your lot from? I ask because mine are from east Anglia and Notts which had a big Puritan community.
@Landailyn Me too! It must have been a terrible time to live, especially for women. What with war and witchhunts - I'm glad to be here now.
@Landailyn Mine stayed in England, but apparently they disapproved of music, dancing and ankles, so they might be in for a shock.
@Landailyn I have some crazy Puritans too - I often wonder what they'd make of their descendants LOL And lots of country vicars.
@Landailyn That's true. Mine aren't the most exciting bunch, but they fascinate me, because they are mine. I do have a pirate though.
@Landailyn I have a list too LOL And started out hoping I'd be related to x, y and z, but it turned out I wasn't.
@Landailyn Scary - ye gads yes, Who'd want to be related to him LOL
@Landailyn I'm not surprised, it would be a wonderful thing LOL
@Landailyn I suspect the LNU and UNK are actually the ancestors of Greta Garbo.
@Landailyn So good in fact, we'd find the surnames of all those poor women who never had theirs recorded.
@Landailyn And documented to nth degree. Heck, we'd probably know what they had on their cornflakes.
@Landailyn Yes, we'd have our families back to the 15th century before anyone else had opened a box of cornflakes. LOL
