Yes... but if you did, your photo AND your signature would probably both look like total shit. :trollface:


I've lost my license and never renewed it from the old type, what should I do? :ooer:


is this any help? https://www.gov.uk/apply-online-to-repl ... ng-licence


Thanks, I must get on with it. It has come into question re DBS check, not that I have anything to worry about apart from missing driving lisence :smilin:

I became a "nanny" for the first time at 3.25am this morning!

A bit of background, Mr VC and I had his niece come to live with us 10 years ago (lots of family problems, basically her mom couldn't cope any more)

Various things happened, and eventually Mr VC and I became her guardian's. We had lots of problems at first, school, a bad crowd she was hanging round with but we managed to get her through her GCSEs and eventually she started college to train as a hairdresser.

Fast forward 10 years and she's now a qualified hairdresser, who is starting her own business next year, with a lovely boyfriend and now a mom.

Hallie Louise was born at 3.25 am, 6 pounds, 9 ounces (I don't "do" kg!!) and mom and baby are well. Going to see them later, and can't wait.

I'm so proud of both of them, but so tired now!

Will probably have a glass of two of proscetto to celebrate later on. :cheers:


Oh how fabulous for you all! Congratulations!

Lovely news VC. :thumbsup:

Some people say you love your grandchildren more than you do your own children, sometimes I think they're right. :smilin:

I think that's because once you have them, you're already experienced in the parenting department and that bit older and more confident. You can also hand them back when it gets to much. :gigglesnshit:

I'm thinking of taking up knitting now that any prospect of fun has been shut down here. :dunno:
