"Oh, and before I go. Should I tell you that me and Mrs I made a game called "Cottaging" for Christmas?"

Ivanhoe tried to get me involved in a pre-Christmas game of "Cottaging" - I'm still not sure what he meant !

LR - Agreed that this thread should probalby be in chatter now but really it is quite lighthearted banter and on a topic that has been plastered all over the popular press thanks to a certain incident involving a certain 80's pop icon...

Dogging Ivanhoe? In this weather? Reminds me of a favourit Churchill quote. When interrupted at a dinner function in the middle of a particularly cold spell, to be informed that one of his troops had been caught in a compromising position with a young lady in Green Park replied to the messenger "In this weather? Makes you proud to be British doesn't it?"

Careful LR. Denial of my right to campaign for the rehabilitation of the word "cottaging" into the general vocabulary could be construed in a most negative light. This would frighten horses and put off visitors to the are (Hooray!)

...if you press it, they will come.

I have rerouted via Tesco thanks, as for the additional ways of earning weight watchers points en route I think I will pass on that
but thanks

LOL! Loved the Churchill story so much Birdie that I e-mailed it to my brothers & sisters!
NCG, sorry your first post has been met with some naughtiness, we get a bit carried away sometimes - hope it hasn't put you off us. Think I'll stick to homesteading too

Which do you think is more likely: people worldwide googling for SE1 and being offended by our cottaging banter, or people googling for cottaging and being captivated and delighted by our talk of SE1?

a woman I know had just heard about the concept of cottaging...... but when she excitedly told me she got tthe terminology wrong............ she called it " bungalowing"..

well i suppose they are related.

does this post consign the topic to chatter ?
