Awwww thankyou for birthday wishes.

Indeed, next year I will be 27 again.

Tarq's enjoyed his balloon flight that I got him last year for his birthday, so much, that he's booked for me to go up. Should be well good! :) :-*

As for the cute hound, I'd have him but I've already fostered Tarq's! Woof woof.

Well I spent most of the time sitting in the sun, I read a few books and I pigged out on sardines and Super Bock.  Agony.  I'm glad to be back really.

It's refreshing to hear a woman with such a healthy attitude to sex. Tarquin having to make an appointment would be part of the foreplay, I take it?

Good moaning indeed.

That should be "Tarquin's having ...", otherwise it's a fused participle. See Fowler's Modern English Usage.

No, it shouldn't be. It just shouldn't, d'you hear?
I apologise, in advance.

And can we stop with the sex talk now please - this is a family forum.

I think it would look wrong: "Tarquin is having to make an appointment would be part of the....."

Are you sure that foul Fowler is correct, Mince?
