    Could be good if you get a TBG voucher emailed to you and if it still matches the Manomasas to £1 in the comp.

    Good morning all....

    Lovely Bella I meal last night....personally I think it was better than last year,not as good as the first year ....but we still managed to chomp through £49.25 worth of food so not bad going.

    I also popped to A and found some reduced extra special cookies for 20p so thats pudding sorted for a few days.
    Tonight seen as its the first dip into the freezer we are having turkey curry...I'm sure as the month goes on the combinations will get more interesting.

    I do need bread today so I am contemplating a quick shop somewhere...but I must resist going for one thing and ending up with a basket full....that seems to be my downfall of late.

    I may have missed the travelling enterprise but hope she has a wonderful and relaxing holidayx

    That Sister has found the secondary cancer in her neck has returned.
    This has actually shaken her to reestablish contact with her Consultant

    She gave the well water & green slurry smoothies a go. Unfortunately they have not worked
    Now she is looking in to if she can have laser treatment on her tongue cancer via her Consultant.
    If not she has said she may have the Chemo radio therapy, a bit late but it is her decision

    Trulymadly - I too have a tin of evaporated milk in my store cupboard! Dread to think of the date on it. Perhaps you could use it with your tinned fruit like we had in the sixties/seventies!

    So sorry to read your post Snap....at least your Sister tried it her way....whilst it may be later down the road for starting conventional treatments at least she is beginning to open up to them.

    so sad for you all.....
    and everyday will bring new challenges

    Very sad too that your friend passed without you being back in contact but as you said in your touching tribute....the beat does indeed go on. x
