She is a recruitment consultant at present. I met her man moons ago in m town, when a friend who fancied her at the time introduced me... anyhow we were, (my friend, my miswah and I) in my car (a stage 2 xr2i ) and i lost my phone, so i asked my friend to ring it so i could find it, but he was pissed and refused, so she offered to ring , AND BINGO thats how we got each others numbers anyhow about two weeks later we started dating, and its been 4 years and a month now ( my friend now does not talk to me thus is no friend)

she does my nut alot as she is quite scatty, but is lovely all the other time

That's the first time I've come across someone calling someone else 'crafty' & meaning something I didn't expect!

Carlingo, I think you & your miswah were obviously made for each other.

BTW- if your miswah can knock up some deal on personalised E90Post Christmas cards, I'm sure our American friends would import them in bulk, without a doubt.

Get 'www.craftymiswah.com' bought up NOW!

All the best.

If the weekend press is to believed today will be another one. I knew what you meant Carlos (which is quite scary in itself). It is also perhaps kind of implied in the "20 years on" that there hasn't been another one since IMHO. Unless it happened on a Monday and was called Black monday it seems unlikely there would be another one anyway

Hi mR julesmanwhocontributessomuchtothisforumjustcheckhi spostcount

Not sure where you were that day, but we had a big discussion about Off Topic subjects on this BMW car forum. Viv the Main man as im concerned on this UK forum goes off topic on every single post. No need to expand on that is there

also in this big discussion we said that off topic subjecvts are great and break up what could be a quiet and sometimes dull forum....

so to distinguish from ''car-related, my exhaust has fallen off'' topics to '' just bought a 6 bed house in LA'' topics WE I say WE regular contributers to the forum place an

OT: in front of a title! If you AINT interested... DONT LOOK


Carlos
