Doesn't time fly...

... so the saying goes... and it does!

I registered on this site on the 7th May 2006, and since then have made 969 posts (this'll be 970 then). That's a bloody lot! I've just looked it up on my profile.

I looked back at some of my early posts recently... oh dear... however did you all put up with me eh?! But hey ho. I hope that we are both of some use to you now!!!

But we launched in... poured the vino... and made ourselves at home... whilst telling you all that we were moving over. I know what it's like - you see people come and go, and most don't actually do it... and that's no bad thing. It has to be the right thing for the right people at the right time.

But Alan and I have moved here... and we've now been on this fantastic Island for almost 10 months. Actually, I typed 10 minths first... then realised I sounded like Peter Sellars, with "Minkey" winking smiley

So how long have you guys been members here - and how has your life changed since that time. Or has it not?

Answers on a postcard please to "Casa A & E" Playa Blanca... Actually no - just post it here... because the postal system here is rubbish!!!

Ever yours... Elle xx

I've been registered since 12/07/04 but I was registered under another name before that (long story).

That was round about the same time I got involved with SARA so I could say that my life has changed considerably since then.

Do you know...I can't remember what I did with my life here before I started volunteering at SARA............I must have been very bored. I know the house was a lot cleaner LOL

So how long ago did you get involved with SARA then Lynne. I know that you and I know "how", but I never got the timescale.

Give Steve a pinch from me, by the way grinning smiley

I decided to do a dog show on the island back in 2004 (around march or April). Approached Sara about having it there and giving the money to them. The little dog show turned into a big event called the Island Show. Whilst preparing for that I saw the state of the shelter and how they were desperate for help. I started volunteering one day a week, doing the laundry etc.
It progressed from there. I got more and more involved, worked more days etc and then they asked me to join their committee (Board of Directors).
Now I seem to be there everyday and do the fundraising as well----oh well, no rest for the wicked!!

Steve's in bed.......only me up at this God foresaken hour
