    welcome! Don't worry, we're a totally harmless and friendly bunch here. There is nothing wrong you could say. Just relax and be yourself (or someone completely different, if you prefer - that's one of the advantages of the internet's anonymity). And there's no hurry - we have many posters who visit only once per week (or every 5 years :D). Don't be shy - your hubby can confirm that we are nice folks. Hmm, on the other hand: what wife can really trust her husband? I guess you'll simply have to try us out :)

    lol :guffaw:

    Would love to get my spouse here- he asks what I''m laughing about so often I've threatened to sign him up myself.

    We're eventually going to tun into those ridiculous old people who have a joint account for everything for whom it's impossible to throw a surprise party.

    The MiL has said it's probably best not to surprise the FiL at his age/health anyway.

    don't let Bonzie see that. shared accounts are strictly forbidden, even for couples. But get your hubby to sign up by all means! The more the merrier =)

    you're welcome :) I keep nagging that we should have a FAQ section where all the rules are displayed. It'd make things so much easier since even we oldtimers have to look up things occasionally.

    There was an FAQ which I haven’t looked at in years and I am honestly no longer sure where to find it. I obviously need a refresher!

    It's not in FAQ format, but the rules can be found here.

    (Admittedly, the "no shared accounts" rule isn't mentioned there.)

    YAY! You're a darling, Avro! I've searched for more than half an hour and couldn't find it.
    *bookmarks page*
    eta: interestingly, the rule about account sharing isn't included in those rules. Either Bonzie forgot or it was lifted (I presume it's the first).

    I feel so happy! I have 51 likes and I got a trophy! I never had a trophy before! I wonder what it looks like? I am glad someone likes me or at least my thoughts :)
