    Evening Elite friends

    I've been working in the shop this afternoon. We have been getting such wonderful donations in lately. We sift through everything that comes in, most go out in shop and some items are put on local selling pages by one of the ladies (well, her daughter actually) and I've been putting some things on eBay for them. Came home today with a full box of brand new mobiles (hanging sort not phones ) plus loads of sealed tapestry and cross stitch sets. On Saturday I came home with several Capodimonte alabaster type religious figures/plaques which look to fetch good pices on eBay. Oh and two new vintage style Man U tops So I am going to be really busy over the coming weeks, with this and my own stuff

    Job for today has been shredding newspapers to take to the local hedgehog rescue. They do a brilliant job running the rescue without any funding. The man and woman who run it both work full time and use their own cash along with donations to run the rescue. Not an easy job with medines to buy off treatments and all the other items needed.

    We have a Hedgehog Lady round here, comes into shop regularly, and we give her dog food that has been donated when we can. She was thrilled couple of weeks ago as she had started releasing the overwintered ones. She had a 'record' year, with weather as it was, the hedgehogs had gone for 3rd litters and most of the babies were not prepared for winter, so she had 62 overwintering One is blind so will join her other permanent residents, making 12 of those now

    Mum is back in Hospital, as she can't eat, drink or take any of her medication and seemed to be in and out of consciousness when the paramedic came yesterday.
    They have her on a drip which should help to rehydrate her, but don't yet know what the problem is.
    Hope they can find out and do something to help.
    I have her sister, my 90 year old aunt (lives 40 miles away and can no longer drive) crying on the phone to me and asking if she is going to be OK, but I don't have the answers.

    A couple of people have asked after my carpet I know for sure that one of them is really after Oz

    It's been down about 10 years and is very hardwearing....apart from the bit that snap spotted

    I got crisps. Hope it works.

    Off for a catch up

    Good morning all

    Izzyb. I hope you are correct the Jacobs cheddars would be wow.

    Today is DH birthday. He is now officially an OAP.
    Got him an electric toothbrush via quidco/Superdrug. Who knew it neeed an adaptor

    Shopping needs to wait as it's work then off to DS where a carry out is the order of the night. Guess who is paying

    Very mixed day yesterday as saw, in the passing, granddaughter who is estranged because of her mother. She gave me the biggest smile and wave

    Snap hope your dad is better today.

    Di beautiful baby

    Enjoy whatever you do.

    Can I ask for some people's ideas on how much a week excluding rent, would be reasonable for someone staying in Vancouver, Canada for couple of months.

    It's really difficult to judge when it's not actually a holiday. But while there will want to take advantage of nice things to do.

    Thankfully rent includes utilities etc, so that's one less concern.

  • Who do you think came out best in the Corbyn v May battle tonight?

  • Clever by Paxman; subtly testing out "strong & stable" by focusing on u-turns on Brexit view, social care, self employed tax & election date

  • Ps sadly i got in too late to have seen Corbyn, hence why no comment on his performance
