    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.

    Hi guys,
    Havent been here for a really long time.
    I hope all are well.

    Wanted some advice regarding bad acne, has anyone tried and can recommend some treatment, gel or other?

    Thanks

Go on the NHS website and Have a quick read. There's some specific meds mentioned which DO work and you can pester your GP until he or she will prescribe them.

    Good luck. I'd be interested to know how you get on

    They said the assessor would arrange dryers when he comes. Only downside is the excess is £350.00 as its a water leak.

    Sorry to hear of your troubles Rose. Hope they get sorted soon.

    The excess could be worse - I've just had to fork out £1,000 for subsidence excess

    No TM, its far worse than pushing boundaries. Will have to change shools this week, I have no idea on where to start



    Thanks, OH ok, his voice is starting to disappear again

    You must be absolutely fed upLet's hope OH finds his voice again it's just a blip this time. I know they said he may need more operations but you have to stay hopeful

    I'm guessing it's something serious for DS to have to change schools and I'm sorry to hear about that. On a positive note it may be just what is needed to turn things around for him. All you can do is work closely with the new school in the hope that it works out for him. I hope you are getting support as well as DS.

    Thinking of you

    Went to SD today to get the L'Or!al. So bought the golden age for my mum, 2 day creams, 2 night and 2 serums. As well as being half price the 3 for 2 also comes off in store when you use your beauty card. SA scanned 2 at a time then scanned the Versace miniatures and so on giving me 3 x 5ml perfumes. They didn't have any L'Or!al candles but they gave me the Olay ones instead which was very kind of them
