    So after 13 months it's nearly done and in true mar style lots of pennies saved and muscles gained

    This was taken last night with the hailstones so isn't the best picture

    Have any of you been in the position of having to appeal for your child to go to the school of your choice please?

    As you know Lee and family have moved up to a village called Hope which has the best senior school for the area . Well Seren who is 4 has got into the infants school there, Josh who will be in hi s last year in the junior school hasn't but can appeal and Caitlin who is 13 hasn t heard about hers yet.

    It's not really possible for their parents to be in two places at once or even three as it is at the moment as they work.

    Any suggestions who they could have a word with or what to say when appealing please.

    Evening all

    Nasty 7 1/2 hour drive up to rugby but now installed at the Dun Cow ready for tomorrow's annual family picnic.
    Amusing sign to post later.

    Saw mhoc mentioned Vantage inns yesterday but think I have just had the best most value for money meal ever. Didn't fancy anything on menu so just had egg and chips in a beautiful pub and was charge £3.50. Lovely waitress but both items through as a side order. Don't feel so bad forgetting the Mitchell and Butler share owner discount card now.

    Yet to read back but son has just got me watching love island and then it's BB but despite being tardy with my posts I have been reading just not following the glitches.
