    YAY!!

    I am a mummy of 3 little twinkle toed girls :D

  • nod2008/04/22 22:21:08
    LOL

    well have a read of the thread that is linked in my signature Winniblu :)

    and if you have any questions then just ask :)
  • Diannesa2008/04/23 00:15:01
    Well I am the opposite to winniblu - I am the mother of 4 young fast and active toed boys! lol! They certainly keep me on my toes! :)
  • admin2008/04/23 00:52:46
    4 boys........ I gotta say ..... being one .......... that I'm REALLY REALLY SORRY for you. Jeeze - what did you do in your other life to deserve that ?
  • Michelle21542008/04/23 09:21:33
    Well ive got one of each, and everyone keeps telling me how lucky i am!, I dont quite get it, but hey if they think its lucky then it must be:whistling: .
    Michelle2154
  • craftykiwi2008/04/23 09:33:03
    Ditto Michelle2154. I have one of each too and that is more than enough. Like admin says I don't envy Diannesa - couldn't keep up with one boy at the best of the times so not sure what would have happened with 4!!

    Is this comp for all Buckscopers who are Mums, or for the Mums of us Buckscoopers?
  • nod2008/04/23 18:01:51
    Nope the comp is open to ALL Buckscoopers cos the prize is designed to be given to your mum for Mothers day :)

    this should be a good laugh.

    Inky Pinky Ponky,
    Daddy bought a Donkey (he signed up with Buckscoop first, received some great advice from Nod and ended up with quite a large sum of cash back).
    The Donkey died
    and Mother cried (then needed some retail therapy so went shopping at Dealsdirect and Dstore and spent all of the week’s grocery money, but also got Buckscoop cashback).
    Inky Pinky Ponky. :whistling:

    edit: it wasn't "our" Donkey, it was a very, very old (unrelated to Buckscoop) Donkey who'd had a wonderful life and simply died in it's sleep of old age and natural causes.
  • admin2008/04/24 21:32:23
    :D rofl. Very funny.
  • nod2008/04/24 21:32:39

    Come now, it takes time to develop art :D
  • winniblu2008/04/24 23:37:50
    ok here is my token effort :D

    Mother loves her computer
    buckscoop her favourite site
    With her credit card in hand
    She shops both day and night

    She throws her money around
    As many bargains can be found
    Like the donkey she bought last week.

    WHY??

    Well, Nod posted some “hot deals”
    So she sold her wheels!!
  • admin2008/04/24 23:42:29
    :D - dunno if I'd swap my wheels for a donkey. Your going to look a little funny going down Elizabeth St on one.
  • winniblu2008/04/24 23:49:47
    HAHA!

    I'll pass it onto my "mother" for ya :D
  • trumz2008/04/24 23:51:07
    Hope this makes the grade!! :D

    Dear sweet Mother of mine,
    Fancy a breakfast at ten to nine?

    Then we’ll shop all day, no not at Myer,
    Rather log online, where my little feet won’t tire.

    Buckscoop is simply a magical place
    Where a donkey can even be an Admin’s face!!

    (By face, I mean avatar...... gulp!):o
  • winniblu2008/04/24 23:53:50
    NOICE!!

    This is going to fill up some of my time!
  • lisss2008/04/25 00:14:53
    Haha this is going to be fun, a gr8 start already trumz!

    You saying I've got a head like a Donkey ...... :D
  • craftykiwi2008/04/25 07:52:25
    First attempt/draft (hard work keeping it under 50 words!!):-

    A Mother builds a strong vessel
    With a Buckscoop of unconditional love.
    Her guidance helps launch the sails
    That navigate our path through life's ocean.
    If we make a Donkey of ourselves
    And end up on a rocky reef
    Her knowing Nod and helping hand
    Supports us until the end.

    Thats very smart use of the words crafty.

    Nod is pretty knowing as well.....
  • craftykiwi2008/04/25 08:12:56
    Took a long while - had to reach into the deep dark depths of my English school days, and what a hard job whittling it down to only 50 words.

    50 words sounds like a lot at first, but when you have to incorporate 4 words that don't naturally work together (no offense) it doesn't take long to pass that number!
