Thanks Tills - I always like to read about food, whether I can eat it or not I am definitely wanting to try Thoum/Thum one day, but will have to wait until we are on holiday I think. Colleagues are definitely not garlic tolerant, to the point of being intolerant of the faintest whiff......*sigh*

Alchemilla - I absolutely agree

Hope you and your readers have a wonderful Sunday Dear Heart.

OOooohhh, below 150k will be fab
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort
Interim target: below 100k by Aug 13 - achieved Sept 13
Next: 50k by Sept 14 - currently 85.9k

Morning GG, will be when it gets under 100k

Watty, I get so much pleasure from reading about people's progress - it's quite mad as most of us don't know each other but I really do celebrate the news. When Squirrel cleared her mortgage I was thrilled

Morning Brizzle, soon be your holiday - get those invoices in

Alchemilla, I'm surprised you're not still fast asleep at this time in the morning. Enjoy your hols. It will be one mega virtual party when we've all finished

Operation freezer use up is still going well and by the end of this week, I will be down to random stuff to create meals with

1p Tilly Tidied to MOS - all helps.
