    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
    Mar £37.02/£40...lots of help via a gift card and vouchers

    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

    eta. I'm not 100% but I believe SHM use the actual price paid so you would probably only get £1 back ... unless anyone knows any different?

    Poor love, its very hard seeing a child in such pain.
    Are they pining it or just putting it in a cast?

    Eldest child, I think it was at her birthday party and we had just had bunk beds put in for the boys - so I think she must have been 6 and the boys 4 and 2. Needless to say she would not be told and she decided to jump off the top of the beds and broke her arm, it was in a cast but even now its slightly bent.
    That was how she was, always a reckless thrill seeker, I have no idea how we managed to keep her alive.
    It was just before the invention of health and safety but if was now she would have been on social services at risk register

    When I first read this I thought the viewing took place on board the Queen, but it's from the ferry...

    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.

    Apologies, I'm getting better now I've been examined by a medical person, the pain was appalling
    Results are either Cellulitis, or an insect bite or a DVT...
    but definitely not Gout
    Take Ibuprofen - if pain gets worse to go back tomorrow..
