    I got the app, but never bothered with it, is it worth the effort?



    If you are still about, can you post a link please, as I cant find them.
    Edit: not that I have prime.
    edit 2: Got it, thanks Lawrie, not sure if I can use it, but will investigate.

    but at the mo the Cafe Nero offer is still on, buy one hot drink get another free. It works alongside the O2 Tuesday free hot so in theory you can get 2 free. Or if you use your Amex card there is an offer to opt into for 10% off if you use your card.
    There is something else as well .... is it Q highstreet or Nationwide simply rewards if you dont have Amex might have made that up ....

    Well hometime approaching fast. Builders supposed to be coming back this week or early next to redo the snagging. I sent a message yesterday to say I was employing a professional kitchen fitter to come and assess the problems and would be charging the bill onto them. Worked a treat the boss called and went through the list with me and I sent him confirmation and photos by email. He is sending another carpenter to fix it all and says he will come himself when its finished so it can be signed off. I was going to reclean the kitchen and windows that the cleaner didnt do but have decided to leave it for him to see and maybe they will send more cleaners.
    Carpets been down since saturday so very excited to be able to hoover them today.
    Have decided to not have all the furniture back in as oh is bringing some back himself in a month so we are going to rent a storage container for a couple of months ( some on the site where I work ) and sort out what is going to go and also my son can come and get whatever he wants from his stuff and rest can go.
    Very tired this week as been away in London working for 2 days and grandaughter has chicken pox and Mum had a bad fall last week and cracked her head open.
    Really strange but I actually feel nervous moving back. Feels like a new start and although a bit worried about oh coming back we have had many frank discussions and I have told him after all that's gone on I deserve a nice home ( never had one that wasnt complete chaos ) and he is full of good ideas to make our lives easier.

    Can anyone recommend a good alarm clock.

    We bought this one for DS1 and it is rubbish, he has had it all week and its not very loud when the buzzer sounds, you can hardly hear it, and its not waking him up. Good job he has it set on his phone aswell.

    Hey well done AJ


    We're worth it though don't know how many miles it is for me, takes me about 40 minutes, those dates arent looking too promising. If anything the 17th will be my best chance but I don't think BQ can make that,
    I'll let you know when I know for sure

    Are you sure because we all swapped and changed ours last time we were there.

    Good morning all, another cloudy one here.

    Looking at 3Dogs's hair, that is how I wear mine when I get around to having it cut. The only problem is I was about to get it cut when a sign went up in a recently let shop in a local town saying there was going to be a new hairdresser there, and it would be £9.90 for a wash and cut as well as £5 off all hair appointments there for the first 2 weeks. That was a few weeks ago and it does not open until 22nd July. Just hoping I manage to wait

    Susan, I love the haircut and colour, suits your skin tone. I used to get free hair treatments as a hairdressers model until last year when the young chap finished his training. Such a at the prices these days.

    Good morning Elite

    I'm being such a lazy slob this morning, still in pjs, infact still in bed OK, I'll get up and show willing in a minute or two

    Rain over night, sunny this morning but I'm sure I heard weather man saying rain late this afternoon, that's fine by me

    Sarah did I see you mention you are doing a race, this time in mud? Good heavens girl, you're a glutton for punishment, that will be hard going I would think, Good luck anyway sweetheart, I know you'll do well as you always put your heart and soul into these races xx

    Snap, how did you get on last night? Or have I missed your post? I've got a catch-up to do. Hope your leg isn't playing up xx

    Hugs to the Elite poorly and those low in spirit. You're in my thoughts today xx

    I returned a home phone to Argos because the ringer wasn't loud enough, they refunded and I bought a different make xx

    Good point, I am going to measure the mattress as a starting point.

    I am also going to start a good practice of putting a large k in a corner before it goes on for the first time - to make bed sheet changing day even more fun I can never tell which is the double bed sheet and which is the king sized until I get one that wont fit or is too bit - bed wrestling, all good exercise

    OH is a very restless sleeper, forever moving about and flapping arms and legs and I noticed that he has even managed to wear a hole in a sheet

    My friend who helped me so wanted to win the DAB radio & did

    We went to Maccy Ds just before midnight after, drive thro order, us 3 friends, told to park up, waited, waited, they came out - problem with kitchen, offered free desserts..
    It then turned into Thursday as we waited...
    But eventually SA came out with our order & free desserts & a 50% refund
