    Good afternoon Elite

    Where the dickens has today gone I hadn't made plans other than sort out car insurance, job done . I ended up going with General Accident which is part of or under Aviva. Direct Line wanted £420 from me, for a 2012 Merida, I have DS3 as a named driver what a leap in price that is.

    So GA only want £242 on a like for like though the car is now a year older. Do you know, last year I drove under 5000 miles They will charge 0.5% for debit or credit card they take PayPal but the charge for using that is 1.5% wtf

    I don't pansy around with monthly payments it's gone in one lump sum


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

    Lembit, that's it .

    Pleased op went well, time will soon pass for the drops to come to an end. Though for a driver, it's a drag, Id forgotten bit . 18 months ago I had my cataracts done, not for vision purposes but something to do with pressure build up behind the eyes.

    She mustn't be bending down yet mind, or they used to tell you that xx

    Evening Elite
    Sorry so late,just got home.

    Had hospital appointment in St Helens this afternoon.
    Went into Tesco Extra, Prescot on way back
    .
    Wanted to get a Robinsons purple water bottle for 10p as had been suggested might work, without juice. Prefer Fruit and Barley given the choice.

    Used self-scan gun, no price came up for purple bottle scanned on own, but after scanning 2 bottles of juice, 2 for £2.00, it scanned and took £5.00 off the bill. Giving a negative balance of -£3.00.

    20 bottles of juice and 10 purple juice bottles = minus £30.00
    Couldn't believe it.
    Having kittens going through self scan tills. Got stopped for check.
    Assistant pulled 5 items out to check, then let me through.
    Got juice, bottles and shopping for £4.94. having really spent £50.94 ( I think ) on food , juice and water bottles.
    Charged 10p for each water bottle on bill

    Sub-total £65.74
    Multibuy Savings
    Water bottle Free - 50.00
    Ice cream 2 for £3.00 -1.00
    Drinks 2 for £2 -9.80
    Total savings -60.80

    Total to Pay £ 4.94

    Hope that makes sense

    Sorry don't know how to post receipt from Tesco.

    Repeated with remaining 9 water bottles.

    Seemed to be changing all the offers, so don't know if will work tomorrow/Friday.

    Outside light being triggered on & off as Virginia Creeper is flapping about in the wind ...
    Go out to porch with scissors to cut the tendrils off - get stung on my index finger by a tiny wasp
    It is agony
    I'm now itching all over with imagery insects
    I'm going to end up in the bath as my hair is crawling alive now
    Now my finger is swelling rapidly, moving into my knuckles I have removed all rings & bangles.
    Slavered in insect bite cream, rescue Remedy cream & Savlon

    Just what I need at midnight...........

    aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggggggghhhhhhhhh

    What a day so far - had a message to say someone might of handed my earring into a shop in town ...
    Galloped to town, and the relief is tremendous - it is my earring. Found on pavement on Tuesday by a lady who I have thanked verbally & rewarded too ♥
    Absolutely over the moon - it has been found, 30 years old & worn for nearly every day of those 30 years



    Bless You ♥
