    Me . Haven't got a Mr S either. It's a round trip if over 28 miles

    I couldn't get much petrol in anyway as I filled up last week. Not been far, I reckon I've got 3/4 of a tank.

    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

So I was watching as the sa was telling every customer what extra points they had received. Yesterday 1 customers won 1000 points, next customer same till won 2000 I was next customer got my 5000 points

    Mr TS has just had a nosey in the brown cardboard box marked xmas. I still haven't unpacked it since we finished the kitchen.

    He found the xmas cake (last years ) and five xmas puddings.

    He was after some chocolate I had told him to look in the box on top not the one underneath. He is now tucking into Liz Shaw Amaretto sticks.
