Had a sort of catching up day today - various jobs needing doing that I've been putting off. OH and I are going to visit family in a sunnier (hopefully) place for christmas so not bothering putting any more decs up in our house (unless BP can get time off from being the Domestic Goddess) but it doesn't seem quite right when all around me are putting theirs up so I've decided to have a little token tree so I can feel a bit festive at home. Also managed to get a couple of LOB/fab fings shops in this afternoon but shops were heaving. I thought at one stage a bun fight was going to break out as a couple started arguing at the checkout just in front of me. Wouldn't like to have been in the mans shoes when he got home. Off now to make tea and to settle down to watch x factor - I didn't really mind who won as I think both Jahmene and James are brilliant but James was soo good last night I really want him to win now

Evening all

Managed to find some pants in mr T priced at £7 but when I scanned them they scanned at £8 not 4p or even the right price so totally confused now as thought it was all packs not priced at £8 has anyone else found any cheap today or do they need to be certain packets or colours ?

Never mind will maybe try another store another day but worried to try in a store with no self scanners now

School kit to iron now joy can't be bothered to list anymore on eBay tonight did a few bits yesterday getting bored of people messing me about and not paying

Think that ebay attracts the daftest people - they seem to lose all common sense. I was recently asked if a collection item included postage. What??

You may wish to reconsider AFTER tasting my cooking - I am so not a domestic goddess as friends will vouch. Remind me to tell you of some of my culinary disasters.

I even managed to burn boiled eggs once

I have a total twonk annoying me at the mo have been waiting since Tuesday for them to pay so yesterday I sent a polite "please make payment or contact asap" message and all they have done is sent me a message back and all it said was OK... Total idiots the make contact was a nice way of saying if you have a problem or can't pay let me know but I just don't know what they are on. Thinking about starting non paying dispute but I like to give people a full week. And stupid part is its under £2 the item.

Makes you want to pull you hair out sometimes lol.

I tried to get one of the second batch and it said I'd already had one.

'Dad, what are you talking about?' the son screams.

“We can't stand the sight of each other any longer” the father says. “We're sick of each other and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Leeds and tell her.”

Franticly, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. “Like hell they're getting divorced!” she shouts, “I'll take care of this!”

She calls Scotland immediately, and screams at her father “You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?” and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife.'Sorted! They're coming for Christmas - and they're paying their own way.'
Sure did make me smile
