    I'm going to throw another flea treatment into the mix.....program.

    It's an injection given by the vet and lasts 6 months it cuts of the flea cycle and we've used it for all our cats over the years.

    I dont know how it compares to frontline or stronghold pricewise....both of which we have not used since swapping to program.....but I can genuinely say we haven't seen a flea for almost 20 years!

    worth a google if you want an alternative to other treatments.

    Hi folks

    Just popping in quickly to say hello weather is finally what we expect in Crete - although it hasn't rained it's been cloudy and it's only really today that we have had full sun so we've been making the most of it

    Thankfully we didn't book our flights with monarch. How sad for everyone involved

    I haven't read back so happy birthday or anniversary to those I've missed and special hugs to anyone who wants them

    See you soon!

    Afternoon folks Not much doing today, put Kit's washing out to dry before it rains. Still quite bright and blowy. The lads, Steve and Andy, are coming over soon and after Kit gets in from work we are all going out for a meal at Hungry Horse for Andy's birthday today. Actually that's the third meal out this week. Saturday evening I used my two Nectar vouchers for 4 free main courses at Pizza Express in Lymington before they ran out, together with £20 gift cards from winadinner, and, with diet cokes and puddings, had to pay £9.95 cash. Monday evening we all went to Zizzi in West Quays Southampton. Andy had a free birthday meal plus free bottle of prosseco from them for his birthday, I used £40 of winadinner gift cards, we all had main meals and I had sorbet , plus we had diet cokes as well as the prosseco, and had to pay 10p cash. Tonight we are going to Hungry Horse in Portsmouth to use up some gift cards which are near expiry and don't expect to pay much if any cash

    winadinner by the way is a fab website. Just register and they draw 5-10 names a day to receive £30 vouchers or £20 paypal. I recommended it to Steve and he won after a month or too, then I won three weeks ago, and 'Alan' won just after. Had a problem over receipt of one lot of cards so ended up with two lots. So we have had £120 worth of restaurant gift cards so far. Still waiting for Kit to win ...... and Berry of course ........... and

    It's the large wholemeal bread, but the medium sliced x maybe I should not have bread, but do you think I should carry on with overnight oats instead? All depends on my syn intake, but I never gave many, as you say I leave that for wine intake, do have full fat milk but only a very small splash two three times a day, not much at all, maybe it's also not drinking enough fluids, can you actually over eat on SW? Today I've already had two coffees, overnight oats, now thinking about omelette with mushroom, tomatoes & spinach but I have been up since 3.30am so feeling rather perish, my evening meal will be Bubbs KFC with salad & rocket, maybe some fruit in between too, get weighed in on Saturday morning, yep! Very annoying & frustrating when I can't seem to budge any lbs off when I'm trying sooo hard x . But I'm still going to carry on For some reason I got some will power, don't know how, but I have, off to do my omelette now ssssso hungry xx. Thsnks for your help Di, hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday morning

    £5 off wys £40, then 5000 points wys £40 (which I think is the same thing!) and a triple point coupon.
    Thought I might combine these with a a cos shop.
    There again although I haven't committed to a froctober both Mr Pops and I agreed that we need to use up the stuff in the freezer added to which, I have been gifted a huge bag of cooking apples and a bag of rhubarb so I think I will give it ago (wine deals excluded of course!).
    So, Chez Pip we are looking to come in at under £100 for the month, given that when I was working we could spend more than that in a week
    Spend so far this month £4.14 on milk, fruit and veg.

    Me too.



    Firstly 13lb is a lot of weight to have lost and kept off so you shoukd be very proud of yourself for that however it is so annoying staying the same.
    I try to avoid bread completely, what size loaf are your two slices from 400g or 800g? Could you instead have bacon, egg and tomatoes and leave the bread out altogether?
    I don't have any syns in the week unless I have gravy but save mine for wine at the weekend 28 syns for a bottle of Sauv blanc x 3, do you drink alcohol and if so do you know the syn value?
    Maybe if you're not consuming enough food your body is clinging onto what you do eat......not sure as never have that problem I can always eat
    How many syns do you allow yourself per day? If the hi fi bar was three, four for the flake did you have anything else....what type of milk do you use, do you drink tea or coffee and how many per day as bubbs says maybe you're not drinking enough fluids.
    I'll see what else I can think of.....what day is weigh in day for you.....mines today but after the week I've had plus the wedding I'm expecting about 3lb on....I hate it when that happens but hey ho.
