    Morning peeps.

    Too nice for shopping but if you're going to lidl and like a drop of port then look out for the 10 year old Tawny £3.99 a bottle instead of £11.99.
    Shelf said full price in the only local store that had stock but scanned at the bargain price.

    Hth.

    I've decided I can't work any longer in this heat. So tempted to open a bottle of fizz and just lie in the sun but I'll end up sozzled

    Think I'll have a pint of squash and review my options.

    Good morning lovely peoples

    I'm rather stiff this morning - it's all TM's fault!

    TM made me mow the lawn yesterday - you were only supposed to be looking a my tomatoes

    Enjoy the day everyone

    My Amazon sunloungers.
    They can stay out in all weathers although we will put them away for the winter. They are ok to lie on without a cushion as they have a bit give in them. Really solid and sturdy.
    Paid for using Amazon credits, Amex money off voucher for paying with points and we paid the balance in Nectar points. So free really
    From memory £175 for 2 paying with real money

    Had to come in. Too hot!

    Can't think of anything to cook for lunch.

    DH and DS2 looking hopeful, but I'm too hot to think.

    I'll just open the freezer and stand there for a while pretending I am deciding what to cook.

It also protects you from the stupid decisions of organisations like ShopIt.

    Just to be clear, I have no reason to believe CS/CoS/QC/TCB etc are risky, just none are protected if anything does go wrong. Best to be safe than sorry - and quick to set up T savings etc if required to keep your funds separate.

    Made the mistake of going out on my bike this morning, simply too hot.

    Got home had lunch with something I very rarely have - a can of ice cream soda straight out of the fridge - feeling a lot more comfortable now.

    The crazy thing is it should be about this temperature in the Dominican Republic when we go, the difference being that there is two large pools there and the sea

    So not looking forward to going to London, I think if it was just me I simply would not go, I hate London in this weather.

    Ive seen on some of the FB threads where several people who do the survey sites getting quite big balances built up, over £30 and then having their accounts shut down for no reason, no discussion, no access to their money.

    COS worries me as it seems to be taking much longer now to get up to £20 to do a withdrawal - mostly it seems to be half price items which is good but I only buy things we actually can use so at this rate it will be months before I get yo £20 again
