    Evening!

    Had to do a quick trip to Norfolk yesterday afternoon to drop some things off to my SIL, which is 3 hours away! She took us to Toby carvery for dinner and we took the kids to the sea front for ice cream and arcades.

    This morning I went to JustMas's store to relieve them of sharpies. Also had a CC! Lol!

    Home again now after a long drive!

    So bad day today, fell foul of the £100 per household limit on one sharpie shop....

    Also had 9 sharpies refunded, but only one of them has come through on the email. So not only will I not be compensated for them with an apg... I will have paid £41 and got no sharpies!.

    So stuck what to do!

    I'm guessing to beat household limit you have to have a different address, but then your credit card might not work..

    Just back in my hotel room. Went home and hung out the towels I had washed at Mums and they dried before the weather changed. I went around having the house and got down a few cobwebs ( don't want the assessor thinking i'm a complete slob.) Lounge carpet very wet still but I took up all the towels as I don't want it to dry out completely before he comes. Noticed when I left the lounge door wont close now as it is obviously warped by the water. Kitchen , hall and shower ceilings in a bad way and my bedroom wall and the stair wall very damp. I had most of the windows open when I was there to let some air in.
    Booked the hotel for tommorow night but if he says I can go home I can cancel up to 1.00pm.
    Just reading Sunday papers and relaxing now I have had a throbbing head all day.

    Just 2 miles down the road so near enough to keep an eye on our house refurb. TBH, I'm used to living on a building site, this is the 4th renovation we've done. The last one we did we moved out while they crashed it out, the first 2 we lived through it. Much easier for the builders if we move out and this time time we defo can't stay here while it's being done



    Rose I'm so sorry to read about your flood, I really feel for you. Let's hope it gets sorted out real soon and you can get back to normal

    No sauce at all. They go well in a pasta bake or with a sauce for pasta. They make a lovely cottage pie, albeit bitesize pieces.

    Is this anywhere near you? NN2 7JJ

    For home delivery and C&C it has to be real details, in my view, as it has a real payment method linked to it (the j store apg is different as there is no need to link to a real address). I think those who have access to more than one account are ordering for family who live at the same address or elsewhere.

    The challenge is some people have had the APG link their real accounts and enforce the limit across.

    Evening all
    Well my get up and go came back, so when DH got back from taking mil shopping we started the jobs in the garden. He cleaned the outside of the conservatory while I sorted out the many pots and hanging baskets and swept up all the leaves that had accumulated. I'm amazed at how many of the fuchsias and geraniums have survived and are growing already. I just had to cut off the dead bits.
    I tied up the huge jasmine, and fixed some wire netting to the top of part of the fence, (cat anti escape measure, lol). Having stacked everything on one side of the garden, DH broke out the karcher and cleaned most of the patio. I took over and cleaned the patio table and chairs. Goodness knows how much our water bill will be .
    Knackered now, so gas fire on as we're both cold, coffee, and telly evening ahead. I've got my feet up on the recliner as my ankle is still painful 9 months after I broke it. Been told painkillers, rest when it hurts, and patience, which I seem to be a bit short of
    rose, so sorry to read about your flood. The only upside is that you get your new kitchen and bathroom, and all your decorating done.
