    I don't know what happened there.I was trying to quote saver sue but the message seems to have got muddled with sue's.

    I'll start again.I'm not sleeping at night but had about 4 hours during the day yesterday.Im trying to stay awake today.

    Got a lift to asda this morning and used £15 of apgs and spent 77p.i found 3 wombles but they only added up to£2.73.

    savvy sal, I think you are coping so well. don't worry about not sleeping at night and just sleep when you can.
    I know it' a pain being awake when you really want to sleep, especially if there's other people in the house ( fortunately I don't have that problem).

    The amount of meds I take should put a horse to sleep, but think I've become immune to them.
    But you are taking lots of new meds which are know to mess up your sleep pattern, hopefully things will improve as your body adjusts to the shock of the treatment.

    I think you are so brave.

    Well done on getting to asda that's my sort of shop

    Hmmm. Planning to relax later with my book and a box of MatchMakers and I have just seen on the back of the box that 4 sticks of MatchMakers equal one portion. Seems a bit harsh!

    Been glorious here. Still is.

    23 degrees. Love it.

    Hope everyone can enjoy a little sunshine this evening. My MatchMakers are in the fridge at present. They might last longer that way.

Must have been put in donkeys years ago and probably at great expense.
    Mums cleaner doesn't clean top floor of house so only has 2 full bathrooms and 2 extra toilets to contend with. Costs a fortune keeping each one stocked up with toilet roll, air fresheners ect

    . I do think a chaise lounge is a good description of you though. Stylish yet comfortable and laid back

    Afternoon.Your DYSON is about the same age as mine.
    Very ,very reliable.I shall try to keep mine going as well.

    Mine is a DC04 purple and line although it has various replacements bits now so its a bit of a coat of many colours now.

    My mum inherited a tiny bit if money and she gave us all £100 so I put mine towards buying a dyson, my first foray into online shopping It has survived 3 kids, a very messy crumb dropping Oh and 5 muddy footed fur shedding cats and its still going strong.
    Mum is long gone now but you can understand the sentimental attatchment I have to the dyson
