    Morning All

    Went to wake DD1 for work and she sleepily snarled at me " You never texted me! You've been out all night and you never texted me"

    She had been dreaming about her boyfriend - and he hadn't been out either

    Good morning all, glorious day here

    Two loads of washing out, probably be dry pretty soon

    Have to look at my Dyson to see why the brush bar is not going.

    I can answer the brush bar thing....you need to check the sensors for dust and particles.
    It happened to ours and OH phoned Dyson as it was still under guarantee only to be told there are lots of youtube tutorials on how to clear the sensors.
    Our sensors were near the edge of the collection bin .....and a good clean out there and round the brushes gets it all going again.

    Thank you - didn't even know it had sensors Though this one might be a bit different - 17 years old DC04, no idea how it has kept going this long, but if I can get it to keep going even longer I shall

    I've been getting rid of sachets of stuff too. Last week I opened a very posh looking Oreal pink thing and started putting it one my elbows only to realise that it was hair conditioner It's now balanced open end up ready to use next time I wash my hair. I've already forgotten to use it twice

    Should I just throw it out?

    Must have just gone live On COS as I checked just before I started the recharge - good excuse to go to Sainsbobs anyway - on nectar.com I've got a couple of things for extra nectar points - dole pineapple and Heinz seriously good sauce, both on offer and both expiring tomorrow so hopefully, fingers and toes crossed, my Sainsbobs has the new COS freebie.

    That and the recycling and a few bits for the post box.

    Very glad Oz is back - having to accept the inevitability of their life span is very hard, very painfull. Our Ronnie must now be 17, I am constantly checking him when he is napping, making sure he is still breathing. He is monitored very closely - there are always discussions as to if we have seen him weeing, pooing and eating. Apart from very stiff joints he is still very much Ronnie, very intelligent and very much the alpha male and he will still make sure Sophie cat knows this if she starts acting up and he will still chase Sophie and Treacle down the garden if they annoy him
    I really want him to drift away in the night so he is sleeping in the middle of the bed when he goes and not have to do the dreadful visit to the vets ...

    The house we rented when we had the wedding had 3 loos, a bathroom on each floor, it was only for 4 days but even so I came to the conclusion that life is too short, especially for cleaning 3 bathrooms if you have men living in the house - if in years to come I ended up in a house with 3 loos I would have to get a cleaner in at least twice a week to cope with the loos
    Or get rid of the men using the bathrooms ...
