    Hi. I'm okay...ish. Thanks for asking

    I just take each day as it comes. Just had my second year scan and waiting for results to see if I'm still clear of the dreaded cancer.

    I do pop in to the forum every other day. Perhaps I need to post more and keep a positive attitude.

    Mums been deteriorating slowly through the week since she came out of Hospital last Saturday.
    Got a phone call from my sister yesterday evening saying she had to call out the McMillan nurse as mum was breathing funny. Nurse advised her to contact family members as mum could pass away soon or could be few more days but it was obvious her body was shutting down. Got to my mums at 11.15pm. She passed at 11.30pm, surrounded by 3 of her daughters, at home, just as she wanted.
    RIP mum you fought the good fight till the end.

    Pardon my manners on this scorching morning

    Good morning Elite

    Too hot here already for me, I'm sat outside in my shady spot but not for long.

    Need to go to Mr T to collect my repeat prescription, I don't need it until early part of the week but if I collect today I'll feel more relaxed. Just in case I can't get out in the week.

    I might get Flora Buttery, we used to use it but I've swung the family round to Lurpak. Used to always have it at home as a child and have stuck to it. It's the best butter in the entire world

    Hugs to the Elite poorly and those low in spirit, there are a few with the weigh of the world on their shoulders just now so extra love and hugs to you. You're all in my thoughts today xx

    Hi Elite long time lurker popping in to ask for a bit of advise from the wise!
    I have done a DB shop at SADA for collection for today but notice the DB deoderants have been substituted for Adidas ones which are £1.
    Should I reject the subs or accept and does the APG pick up the DB or the Adidas when I run the comparison through later ?
    Sorry I know its probably a silly question but just cant get my head round which will compare in the end.
    Thanks.

    If you reject them your APG will still show DB and the comparison you want.

    Is this the hottest day ever?
