HI from Caro (GB)

Beitrag von caro64 »

:freu: I just felt like I wanted to pop in and say 'Hi there' I often use this site when I'm stuck for explanations. The site helps me a lot, so it's high time I say :big_thumb: THANK YOU :prost: CHEERS

I hope you're all keeping well - there might be some of you who still remember me but it has been a long time :redface:
Keep up the good work I shall try and pull my weight a bit - after all I have been getting a lot of use out of the site, so that would only be fair.
Until then,
hugs
Caro

Hello again,

I'm fine, thanks! Oh yes, still in England, and not planning to ever go back :D
It'd be great to have another native speaker on board! :freu:

:prost: It's a bit earley but who cares... CHEERS Duckduck, nice to be back. My English has got a bit rusty so don't hesitate to correct me if you see any mistakes. I shouldn't even label myself as a native speaker anymore after being out of Britain for so long :redface:, Sometimes I get rather frustrated and think 'My word - I can't speak German as well as I would like and my English is no where near perfect either' and to top it all up 'I'M GETTING OLD' I shouldn't of had that drink - it's made me all melancholy :lol:.
Anyway is there anything I should know, any changes :watch: any......... dangers :shock:

:shock: I feel horrible correcting you though.. I mean correcting a native speaker is a wee bit arrogant isn't it? Anyway.. I did correct a tiny tiny thing!
I didn't know that you're living in Bavaria, Caro. I am originally from Lower Franconia - nice part of the world :big_thumb: How long have you been living there?

:lol: Ha ha , that's the problem I have when I write the way I talk .... should have = should've = should of
And no it's not arrogant, although I must admit, if it was coming from somebody else and less tactful, I might have thought it to be :mrgreen:
My kids always get a jelly baby when they find a mistake - what would you like from me Keswick? :D
Lower Franconia is that what we call here Nieder Franken?
I have been here for about 28 years now and I love it :jo:.
Bye for now,
Caro

I'd like a jelly baby please, a red one :D . Oh dear now I have the image of you turning around like Tom Baker in Dr Who "Care for a jelly baby?" :mrgreen:

I am from Unterfranken, more precisely from Würzburg but I live in a small village outside Newcastle upon Tyne these days :wink1:

Now you have to get the coat, the hat and the scarf, all available via the BBC and send me a photo. Honestly, not only would this make my day, this would make my decade! :mrgreen:
