    Those of us that have had our new blue Co-op cards, I had a letter arrive few days after my card about registering online with my email. Seems you can choose which local charity your 1% goes to.

    There were three for me to choose from, wasn't hard for me to pick as the local hospice my mum was in was one of them.

    Freecycle - sometimes you just despair, this is a message from this mornings crop

    notice how many times the word "new" comes up

    In that case Mhoc I'd be asking myself if I really actually want to meet them. Flu jabs and the price of coal you could show them your new coat have you bought it yet?

    Well deserved break had and nice left over roast from yesterday although I feel more like having a sleep than painting.

    If anyone's having a bad day I hope this cheers you up. It does contain a LOT of swears though! I find road rage compilations oddly calming

    For using up the limes, the marmalade suggestion made me think of River Cottage compost heap jelly. For some reason my iPad won't let me copy the link but it's easy to find if you google it, it's a Pam Corbin recipe and so easy even I can make it.

    Thank you - have we heard of the iOS only Green Jinn app until this? It is one that has passed me by.

    Edit - launched 24/9 - some graphics look like MSM?

    Just starting to make another list

    This week I meet up with 2 people who I meet up with once a month - more acquaintances than actual friends.
    I used to get through this ordeal with very little hassle, enough topics of conversation between the 3 of us.
    The issue is that now both ladies travel into town on the bus together (one lady cant get her lift anymore) so by the time we meet up those 2 have caught up on everything they have done over the month as its quite a long bus trip for them.
    So now I am the entire centre of attention and I am the basis of all conversation starters

    I get asked questions about the family which is fine except one lady has no children and one has an almost delinquent son so whatever i say about my gang comes out like a parental boast so I have to steer it away from what my 3 have been doing or not doing
    Similarly with the next holiday, i can tell them what ports we are doing and what excursions we are thinking of but again it sounds like blowing your own trumpets (we dont do the same sort of holidays, one has a static caravan and the other has business trips or very drunken holidays in sunshine resorts )

    so far the list is looking very desperate so any suggestions would be greatly received

    putting the heating on and the cost of coal
    flu jabs and the cost of vitamin c + zinc tablets
    health issues, OH health, doctors apps, waiting for results etc
    cats jabs and eating habits
    Marks - sales, Sparks cards
    winter coats

    I see TU are doing their 25% off starting on 23 oct so ideal time to buy that coat now, return next week and rebuy.
    I only say buy it now to secure the size you want.
    Will be visiting Disney in old leggings as 25% off something I need anyway is a good deal.

    Been waiting in for a kitchen unit to be delivered today, well partially waiting in as had to go for mri scan so step dad covered for me. Courier company don't know which van it is on so in essence it is lost. Giving them until 5 pm then I need to go and buy food.

    Good afternoon Elite.

    Hope everyone is warm, happy and well. Hugs to those not so.

    Arrived to the lovely blue skies of Eyemouth to find I've been upgraded to a swanky new deluxe caravan. Posher than my house! It will be even more difficult than usual tearing myself away to go home on Friday.
