    Well, we've just come in from repairing the garden wall, and the front wall.

    All done, should be OK for a few years now

    OH came in and turned the TV on for the football match. I was absolutely disgusted with Scotland when they booed through the English National Anthem, was dead proud when the English did not retaliate for the Scottish one though.

    I think it is vital to respect the National Anthem, it shows total disrespect if you do not.

    Bet the home grown spuds taste good though

    Admittedly do have some ripening redcurrants too, and some unripe blueberries Apples are looking quite impressive too.

    Re SS PAGs
    I scan shopping, go to pay, click and scan coupon and then receipt. Then don't total it, I feed money in, once it acknowledges I have paid or overpaid I click total bitty, it then asks if coupon ok, i click ok, it them hums and clicks and finishes, make sure you put PAG in the slot fully with the receipt attached AFTER it produces receipt as it sometimes asks for supervisor, and if it put away, it causes annoyance.
    I prefer cash as I lose track of card payments.Also if there is cook up, easier to be refunded in cash

    Rather delighted with one other thing though, I have several baby bunches of grapes on a vine I only put in last year And yes, I know I should really cut them off, but I very rarely follow rules like that and mostly get away with it

    Raspberries rarely make it to the allotment gate for me I was when I saw them all red and lovely

    I did the same with my grape. Never done it any harm and its on its third year now. The one I have is a drinking grape but I want an eating grape now too
