    It just started on Tuesday I think and I think they ask you if you want it rounded up. Customer care says they had problem with tills automatically rounding bills up but fixed now! ( I believe them )

    Good morning everyone


    Hope you're all ok on this glorious Sunday.


    It ended up being a very mixed weather day yesterday -
    mainly in the afternoon/early evening with short bursts
    of heavy rainfall followed by bright sunshine.


    It's a lovely sunny dry start to the day today but most
    definitely feeling cooler early morning and late evening.


    Don't know if anyone has been shopping in Tesco the last few days but they are wanting people to round up their bills to nearest 10p for charity.

    Very well done on winning £50 on Quidco!


    to all. xx


    Have a lovely relaxing Sunday and please take care.

    Been wet and windy here but dry at the moment so think we will head out for a bit of a walk.
    Had some nice home made lentil soup for lunch to warm us up and put on a wooly jumper as well!
    Hope everyone has a lovely day.

    Had to get home quickly on walk FF - rain started again but thankfully didn't get seriously heavy until we were inside. We had some thunder too.
    Glad you got your roses sorted out.
    Never tasted veggie spag bol - DH loves his meat (and red wine!)
    We had a smoked mackerel salad with a few chips for dinner. Don't expect we will be having many more salads this year.

    agree salad days are just about finishing now sheils,
    not had mackerel for a while here so will be
    putting it on shopping list for next week,
    good thing you didn't get caught in the rain to bad
    I've just been out to put hedgehog food out & it's
    started raining here again.

    Good morning everyone


    It's another bright, sunny n' breezy start to the day here -
    we had a very heavy rainfall yesterday late afternoon which
    soon cleared away making for a lovely evening.


    The weather really cannot make up its mind at the mo -
    very unsettled!


    Pleased you got out to dead head your roses yesterday
    fire**fly - I've been concentrating on my garage task for
    the last couple of days - must admit though ... I'll be
    happy when it's finished and I can get back to gardening
    again!

    Having said that .... I have been wandering out to my
    garden on the odd occasion to check all is
    well.


    I also think salad days are numbered now - time to start
    thinking about warming food again!




    Have a lovely and lucky start to the week all - please take
    care whatever you're up to.

    Sun is out this morning but the sky looks awfully dark.
    Every time we try to do things in the garden there is a down pour.
    Still need to finish trimming the rather large bushes and need to get the grass cut before we head off again on Sunday. I'm hoping your weather stays nice Alfie since I will in your area next week. DH is hoping to get to Beaulieu.
    Hope everyone has a lucky week.

    Morning everyone. Bit windy here this morning but sun is out. Workmen are digging up the road again. Do not know what it is they keep finding but it looks fine to me apart them constantly digging and repairing. Hope everyone is well. Going to head out this afternoon to sort out my tubs and baskets and get the bulbs etc in.

    Evening peeps. I am completely done in. But most of tubs and hanging baskets are sorted out. Just have to finish remaining few and turn over under my living room window and plant there. Will get that done another day as have a few things to do this week. Will need a soak in the bath as back is a bit sore with constant bending. Can't go down on knees because of leg but do have a little low stool. Hope weather has stayed good for everyone. Was a bit windy here but no rain.

    Bit sunny here too rose but rain forecast for the afternoon.
    Think DH is going to try and cut back lawn, he cut front ones the other day but the grass is so wet it is difficult. Did get some more cutting down done yesterday - so much to do at this time of the year.
    DD was back at Uni yesterday and seemed happy to be back, she has ben doing a lot of hours in the restaurant so probably glad of the rest!
    Wishing everyone a lucky day.

    Morning, suns out here but rain expected later in the day. Just got my 3rd load of washing on so hope i can get it all out and dried. Well done on the Quido win sheils. I won 50p..lol so at least got something for all the time spent on it. Been up since silly o'clock with the dog. He wanted to go out and then couldn't settle. Did wonder if he could hear thunder in distance as he wanted a cuddle all the time. Never mind i will grab a nap later in day. Hope you all have a lucky day.

    Just had a nightmare trying to get across to the shop. Men digging up road are digging up part of the pavement as well. Both crossings where traffic lights are were closed off and temporary ones put up but there is no way to change them to completely stop traffic. So had to take my life in to my own hands and stand in coned of bit in the middle of the road and wait for one side of traffic to stop and other side star and make a dash for it. God knows how the parents managed this morning to get kids over to nursery. They have also shut of both bus stops so it is a long walk to next available one. So decided I am staying in today and not forking out for taxis.

    Goodness DIL is feeling brave. GD wants a cinema party for her birthday. Had to ask what that was. She is taking 10 kids to the cinema then McDonalds afterwards. GS had a football party. DS hired a pitch and a coach/referee for five aside then they had pizza and chips. Bit different from when I was their age lol.
