    I love these, have used them for quite a few years for Xmas as well as birthdays etc.

    Also their special offer mystery bundles, when they do them, are exceptionally good value.

    Hope Riley is OK.

    Such a shame to hurt yourself after playing.

    We had (actually still have, as its a good base for tree pruning!) a 13ft trampoline with no ladder and no net. I used to tell the kids that it is an incredibly dangerous trampoline, so they had to be extra, extra careful. One at a time and stay central.

    Good morning everyone, very wet here today. E you're welcome to help yourself to some rain
    Well done Sarah, not sure if I'd be brave enough to do zip wires
    Oh emerald, poor Riley, sending best wishes for a speedy recovery xx DD1 was working from 6pm yesterday so she quite likely did his X-rays.

    My sale preview email didn't come in until this morning but then I've only got 5000 sparks points - you must live in marks

    I've got 20% off dresses, leggings and coats plus a £10 voucher for household so have to see what is the least worst time I can find.
    Plus some e vouchers to use up from converting TCB
    Originally posted by mhoc
    Well, my extra 20% offers were not coming off and I was loosing things as fast as I could put them into the basket so I ended up with 2 lots of leggings/jeggings and then I gave up after the one dress I really fancied vanished from my basket ....
    So my e vouchers are still intact.

    If you need high end things like evening wear and prom dresses put your list high to low - some very nice formal dresses

    Good morning everyone.

    Another hot one here again today.



    Poor Riley broke his arm in two places yesterday evening . Think he got his foot caught when getting out of his trampoline and fell landing heavily on his arm. He s having an operation this afternoon

    My DS2 broke and dislocated his arm and elbow, first day of 6 week holidays, few years ago, he was gutted.

    If you're not very heavy a side wind makes it interesting

    Never mind everyone elses half hearted offers, TM and myself have more than enough rain to go round, and its good quality stuff too, none of your little whispy drops, big old wet drops, best top quality for your plans, and lately we are having enough to go round everyone.

    Good morning all....

    Hope Riley is feeling in a little less pain this morning Emerald....although he does look as if last night he was surrounded by his favourite things to help him mend x.....no more trampolines for a few weeks.....

    A toiletry update for this week sees 4 in....all products to test for WOM companies....a sample size and full sized dry shampoo and 2 oral b toothpastes.

    on the outs it's 8.....4 were part used things that got thrown out because they had either gone watery or hard or were not identifiable as to what they were....the others used up were a toothpaste,full sized shampoo,sample sized body lotion and sample sized face cream.
    Not bad all in all...but I do fear I'm still not really breaking the back of the stash before new things enter....although I have stopped applying for sample sized freebies unless I actually need or have a use for them...It's the sample stash that I am going to concentrate on in the next few weeks in order to get rid of some things that have literally mounted up over years and never been used.

    I've taken DS to the local cafe for breakfast this morning...full fry up each....and we've already met with an electrician and heating engineer at the as yet to be finalised new property to discuss a full rewire and new heating system.
    We are about to impose a final completion date on our reluctant sellers ....they still seem in little or no hurry to move forward...we were originally supposed to complete in May and it's now by the end of the month or not at all!

    I'm looking at options online this morning for revamping old tired kitchen cupboards for minimal outlay...so if anyone has achieved anything good previously I'm all ears to hear the tale.....

    Hope everyone has a restful and enjoyable week and that JTS gets required results and Sal has managed to come through the first round with her sanity and optimism still intact.
    frugal October...£45.59 of £40 food shopping spend for the 2 of us!
    Jan £41.60/£40
    Feb £54.58/£40...gave up this month 15/2

    I doubt of my little store even sells these Manomasa Tortilla - are they fresh items or long life?
    I am thinking about food bank donations as it would be unlikely that we would eat them all up in time.

    Contemplating ringing my store to see if they even stock them, this is doubtful but I can then stop torturing myself
