Hi Galina –
Happy New Year !
Thanks for your reply and your thoughts and wishes. Yes, I LOVE my new house and everything about the area.
I didn’t know the violin came in two different colours !?! Haven’t been able to replace any of the ones stolen yet. Still angry about it everytime I pass my solids cabinet I think of them . . . 😐
Hope you are well. Have a great year.SandraMemberMarch 27, 2018 at 11:30 pmPost count: 2188SandraMemberMarch 27, 2018 at 10:25 pmPost count: 2188SandraMemberJuly 26, 2017 at 2:13 amPost count: 2188SandraMemberJuly 23, 2017 at 10:37 pmPost count: 2188
HA !! Yes, it was way before I went to the Fat Duck – I was there in 2013. the dream was in 2009. Heston was not in my mind at that time.
The Melbourne restaurant is nowhere as good, unfortunately. I haven’t been there myself yet, so speak from 2nd hand experience. I sent my mum there last Easter but she said the food/menu was ordinary – nothing spectacular or theatrical like the Fat Duck. I suppose you go there with a huge expectation, so it wasn’t fulfilled in any way. She sent me pics of the meal. Nothing like the Fat Duck, so just a good time away while he was renovating his restaurant in Bray. Then he leaves Ashley (his head chef) over here, but he has nothing like the personality or enthusiasm of Heston, and I am guessing the menu shows that.
Can’t think when I will pop over to London next . . . have just got two new puppies after my best furry friend passed away late 2015. They are a handful but so lovely to be with. They are too young at the moment for me to leave.SandraMemberJuly 23, 2017 at 10:25 pmPost count: 2188
🙂 Hello Jacky !!
Sorry to hear you haven’t been well, but very glad you have recovered. Time gets away from us all, and months go past when we’re all doing our own stuff that we forget to check up on our old friends. I’m sorry I thought you were just busy doing other things instead of thinking you might not be well.
Congrats on getting a paperback published ! Well done – I look forward to reading it soon.
There was a little drama earlier on, but all the posts from that have been deleted, and in short, the good fight was won. :wub:
Catch up with you soon – good to see you back here.SandraMemberJuly 20, 2017 at 11:14 pmPost count: 2188SandraMemberMay 31, 2017 at 1:07 amPost count: 2188SandraMemberMay 16, 2017 at 9:47 pmPost count: 2188SandraMemberMay 16, 2017 at 9:45 pmPost count: 2188
Hi Gallina – no, I don’t have any prototypes in my collection.
I could never get the English Rider, the Double Decker Bus, the Crown Jewel Guard or the One-Horse Open Sleigh.
Yes I am still looking to find them from friendly sellers. As you know, there are certain sellers I will not buy from. 😮SandraMemberApril 25, 2017 at 10:52 pmPost count: 2188SandraMemberApril 25, 2017 at 10:49 pmPost count: 2188
Hi Debbie – totally agree ! Miss the ”old days” when we were all ”friends” and checked in regularly with each other. I used to log in daily, and now its like once every couple of months. However, I will try to log in more often and respond to people like you who are interested in getting the site back to its old self. Hopefully others will also respond as well as new people. There are loads of new members who have never written on here.
This site also helped me get my collection going and enjoying it to the fullest. I loved seeing the scenes various members created at different times, and the stories we could write about the characters of the solids themselves.
I’m still sort of collecting – there are a few I never could get my hands on, so still pursuing them on and off.
However, I think EL have dropped off making really, really good ones that one wants to add to their collection instead of a re-hashing of the old ones. Eg Carousel, Birdcage, etc

Yes, you can sell on this site in the For Sale section only. If you read the rules of the Administrator (which is asked of you before posting) , this site is NOT to be used for advertising goods you have for sale on other sites . . . which I am sure I wrote last time.
I await your personal apology on both counts of accusing me of being a hypocrite and for saying you have no issues with me and then saying I don’t know what I’m talking about. You have a very short memory of who you deal with because you are only chasing the $$$.SandraMemberFebruary 13, 2017 at 2:36 amPost count: 2188
Ann, please get your facts straights before you accuse me of being a hypocrite. I have NEVER emailed you about liking your books. I haven’t bought them, I haven’t been given them. You are mistaken of who I am if you think I have purchased anything from you recently. I have only purchased from you once around about 2008. This is where I draw my experience with you from. You sent me a Royal Parasol which had a bent handle and you tried to convince me that his is how it comes. You also sent me some items that were “filled” with Estee Lauder perfume, only to be discovered that they weren’t filled with the original perfume by Estee Lauder, but with a “similar scent” you had made and then just told me that it was the original item without the box/es. All the items you sent me were returned at my cost (both ways) for a refund after you admitted to your “errors” because I was going to complain to Ebay and had Paypal protection.
If you indeed have emails etc from me as you say purchasing other items and books from you, I’d be VERY interested to see these ! Feel free to post them because I am 100% sure they aren’t mine and you are once again, fabricating a story to make yourself look innocent. :wacko:SandraMemberFebruary 13, 2017 at 2:21 amPost count: 2188
Err Ann, you don’t make sense here.
