    If you haven't received your Dorset Tea Growing kit don't expect to get one, someone on another forum I use has messaged them and had the following reply:
    ''"Hello J - thank you for your message. Unfortunately, our website did not behave as expected once the first 1000 Growing Kits were claimed. This may have resulted in a few people seeing the success screen when they were not one of the first 1000 claimants. As our Growing Kits have all been sent out, if you have not received one then unfortunately you were one of those affected by this website error, and for that we must apologise. - The Dorset Tea Team.

    I don't actually shop - it comes to me.

    I feel bad about taking the really cheap food because I don't need to if you know what I mean.

    Haven't done much comping this month thanks to the arrival of a cockapoo puppy my 6 year old has named Lucky Snuggles

    But I finally have a June win to report The Last Kingdom DVD boxset so I'm going to claim that as my T and June.

    Also had £5 in a bag of crisps, but don't think there's anything I can use that for!

    Well done on the win and your new arrival. Any pictures you can share? I assume you will be shouting Lucky accross crowded fields not the full name ...

    Oh yes, we'll definitely be calling her Lucky , hoping the Snuggles bit will gradually get dropped as my son gets older Tried for several hours to talk him out of snuggles, but when he gets an idea its impossible to persuade him differently, so we compromised on Snuggles as a middle name, my 9 year old is not amused

    Lots of pictures, and I'd happily share one, but I have no idea how? If you can give me an idiots guide on how to post one, I'll post one in the morning

    I've had a notification on facebook that i've won a wild bird starter kit including feeders and some different types of bird seed. Fingers crossed it'll bring more birds into the garden, at the moment, Frankie's over enthusiastic bounding around seems to be scaring them off! I've ticked off F on my alphabet
