The day I've been waiting for!
« on: October 11, 2015, 11:35:59 pm »
Finally reached the penthouse!! That was one hard road but I see the next years just rolling by in comparison. I would never have got here without the support of many people on the other forum who have now joined this one...you all know who you are. This is one battle that was worth the tears! Feeling ecstatic!

 :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: WOOHOO!!!!!!  WAY TO GO DOLORES!!!!!  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

That's fan-flippin-tastic news!  The Penthouse is proud to welcome you through its hallowed portals to take up your hard earned place so make yourself at home - there's a bottle of bubbly chilling in your suite, together with some fresh strawberries and a chocolate fountain, so indulge yourself, you've worked hard enough for it!  ;)

Yep, it's amazing how fast the days will go now so enjoy that sense of freedom, it's really not that long ago that we were each of us counting each day, hell, each HOUR, obsessively and now they'll slip by so fast you won't believe it!

Well done hon, freedom is yours as long as you never allow the stinky little oik to whisper his smelly nothings in your ear so you hang on tight to it and as and when the smelly little b***** makes an appearance, boot him into orbit! ;D

Oooh, Our @Dolores has made a sneak arrival!!  ;D

That's just FLIPPING FANTASTIC and you have every right to feel as proud of yourself as an extremely proud thing. Well done indeed.  :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer: :foundbeer:

I have fired the oven for the traditional virtual chocolate cake and it will be delivered to your suite before you know it. You can dip a slice in @Kat73 's chocolate fountain.  :)

How are you going to celebrate your arrival?
Finally saw sense on 8/12/13

Mighty well done and congratulations Dolores.
You do right to feel ecstatic, it can be a long weary climb to the Penthouse early doors, so enjoy it now your there! :D
