    A lot of kilt hire companies state you must wear underwear when using their kilts. Hygiene I believe.
    How many people that conform to this is unknown, unless anyone wants to do a spot survey, just make sure you don't c*ck muck it up
    Just to clarify things, my knickers are a lovely pink with ribbons, other guys do stare when I'm at the toilet, I am sure they are jealous

    I had to buy some emergency perfume today.....last minute birthday present. Just called into the local Boots and happy to get the Marc Jacobs Dot 50ml perfume for £34.99. Bought 2 of the cheapest shower creams at 59p each to use a 50 points coupon which took me over the £35 I needed to qualify for a conditional spend coupon of 350 points.
    Also used a double points voucher and a 10% off shower gels


    Just remembered it's Durham Big Meeting today(Miners Gala).

    The place will be heaving.

    I've halved my Hovis COS loaves and put most in the freezer.

    We don't eat as much bread these days and if we do need it we can just take what we need out of the freezer.

    Em.....did you hear about that terrible accident last night with the acrobat in Spain?

    I hate not having a car - my routine is all out of sorts . It is still broken as I have been away all week so have not had the time to sort it (or rather, I am stupid and didn't get it arranged while away so that it could be done when I got back ... so I am now waiting for the garage to confirm when they can do it!). I didn't realise many garages work short or no hours on a Saturday .

    I used one of those garage comparison services online (they submit your requirements to garages to quote against) and appear to have a good price quoted earlier ... but time will tell (and now closed until Monday - while I was waiting to see if other quotes came in).

    I think I need to get it back on the road, then perhaps get rid of it as the clutch going is sign that it is perhaps time to get a different one before other major problems, but at £300+ to get it on the road it is not cheap just to then sell it on .

    Plus I hate spending money on cars......I know it's maintenance but you somehow don't FEEL the benefit.

    Hope you get it sorted soon.

    I know this is a piece of string question but has anyone bought a dashcam recently - if so what do I need to look for, what criteria?

    Its one of those items that has been stuck on the wanted list for a long time

    We set off for our smaller Sada this morning in the next town further away but much easier to get to, free parking and its en route to waitrose. Then we found the road was closed and the diversion route was about 10 miles across country so we gave up and headed for home via Mortibobs for salad
    Then we were nearly broad sided by this #%}#% - he nearly drove into the side of us So we got onto the bypass and drove into town, the car behind us before eventually passing us - tailgating other cars, overtaking on double white lines, pulling out on the road-about and generally driving like an idiot.
    I don't know why we ever leave the house

    You have my sympathies Anon. I'll be without mine on Tuesday as it's in for something to be fixed on a recall. They need to have it all day and I'm stressing about it already. I wasn't planning on going anywhere but hate the thought that I can't if the notion takes me (or even worse, there's a mega glitch - I can walk to A but the amount I can carry is limited lol)

    MSE are advertising a 15% off Travelodge code for anyone booking for the summer:

    http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/deals/travelodge#summer15

    The same code is on QC too so you can get 12% cashback on bookings of 2 nights or more (5% for one night) as well.

    We have just stayed in the new one in Southampton, acceptable for a one night stay and very close to restaurants and shops

    Meant to mention, if anyone is looking at the "free garden quoits" in the Express (£5.70 postage) they have what looks to be the identical one on Robert Dyas online for £4.99 and there is a 10% code floating around making it £4.49 - great for our grandson
