    And then on the way out, I got trouted! Store Manager(?) and Security Guy wanted to ask me about my shopping. Said I am on camera buying with APG's and returning a lot. (Not true but did on this occasion)
    Fairly pleasant exchange but made sure I knew that I am being watched. Didn't ask how I got big APG's, said they don't mind me buying stuff for myself but to try to avoid returning items.
    Will have to lie low there for a few weeks!

    Morning all

    CF, how about returning items to a different store, if you have another one nearby. Might help divert attention to yourself

    Right Im going back to bed. Only got up to let the dog out for a wee. Can never resist a sneak look at the forum

    Morning Peeps,

    Been awake since 4am, as DS1 and GF very loud when they came home.

    Managed my first DB shop yesterday. Will try again today. Better go early, before everyone descends on A to get BBQ supplies!

    Hope to do some gentle gardening today. Should start now, before it gets too warm!

    Morning all hope everyone is well.

    Plans for the weekend - So excited as we have got new wardrobes ( ours were given to us and are very dated ). Our new ones will totally transform our bedroom which is the last room in the house to be modernised. Only cost £650 for a big and 2 medium wardrobes, 2 sets of drawers and 2 bedside drawers. I bought packages which meant the large drawers were only £14 more instead of £100 and something . Lots of hard work ahead this weekend as all reviews say they are a nightmare to build so won't see the sun lol.

    I have Monday off work and finally have a date for my hospital procedure so will be off work another 2.5 days next week. I will hopefully be laid in bed recovering on Thursday looking at my new hotel style bedroom .

    I might even get some before and after shots

    Enjoy the sunshine everyone. Have a great weekend xx
    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.
