    I have been to Newark in the dim and distant past - to a huge antique fair - it was impossible to walk all round, it seemed to go on for miles.

    I have memories of Newark from when I was a child, my grandparents lived there and I hated going to stay. They lived in a rickety old house with no central heating (remember hearing them say we don't need these new fangled things), they had no fridge and we had to eat sweaty ham that came out of a tin and smelt funny. All they did was make meals, we had to do everything else. When we got there the house was filthy and we were expected to clean it top to bottom, although it was very small.

    Weird, the instant they retired they stopped doing anything, they bought a fridge after a lot of nagging from my father (only child) and he had to travel up from Sussex to "install" it They would not even go out without having someone come to pick them up, wouldn't use buses etc. They were always the boss of my father though, and I remember more than one holiday had to be cancelled because they wanted something doing.

    So no, I will not be visiting Newark in the near future.

    Enterprise - your grandparents sound like my parents, expect my parents would go on posh holidays leaving us at home alone.

    When our parents were home, we used to have to get home from school and dust and hoover everything including under the cushions on the sofa and the stairs, and have a cup of tea made fresh for mum when she came through the door at 4.10 pm.

    We loved them going on holiday, no cleaning until the day before they got home. My older brother used to drive their car whilst they were away.... he started driving it when he was 11 which at the time we thought was but as we have matured became .

    Good morning all.

    I can recommend Doctor Foster, which has just started again on BBC1 - fortunately series one was on catchup as I had not seen it, so after a few late nights I have caught up .

    There are also two new dramas starting g o. Monday 9pm on BBC1 and ITV, both by the writers of The Missing so should be good .

    The new TV schedules are always welcome after the summer.

    Good morning

    Hope everyone is well, I need to do a mammoth catch up as I'm a few pages behind !

    Mrs mac are you about? I am hoping to make some tablet for a work friends birthday and I have heard you talking about it before, I've looked online and have found quite a few different variations but was hoping you would have a more traditional recipe you could share ? X

    Morning all Hope all is well with the Elite. Busy couple of days had to drive down to Portsmouth Thurs for a fitting for DDs dress M25 and A3 nightmare traffic but aleast the A3 more scenic. Didn't get back until 7pm.

    Yesterday sorting out PPI claim to go to Omsbudsman as Mortgage Company have sent a final response letter to say they have never sold the product 4 days after they sent me a letter acknowledging the product was with my Mortgage. Now they have closed the complaint without even giving me a chance to complete the FOS form they sent and to supply them with supporting documentation.

    Only realised I had it when I was shredding old mortgage paperwork as I am now Mortgage free.

    Still won't appreciate the extra pennies each month until after DDs wedding ££££s are flying out of my AC at the mo

    Decisions decisions. VM are putting my bill up £3.99 per month from November .

    I would normally use this as a negotiating opportunity as at least I would expect to be able to get an account credit to cover this rise for 6 months. However, do I risk them spotting the larger than intended discount applied earlier this year...? I negotiated in the Spring and then changed my mind on an upgrade before install, but the rolling credit based on the higher package has continued, which has effectively given me another £11 off per month .

    I quite like the idea of the V6 which they are offering existing customers for £20 (some seem to be getting it free through Retentions and others had free from V Red app). I hopefully have 6 months left if the credit continues before having to negotiate again.

    Good morning Elite

    Sunny morning here so washing out there and almost dry, another load awaits

    I hope all the little Eliters have settled in their schools, I remember the first day for my four boys, heart wrenching isn't it? Especially if yours is one that just turns and runs off into the crowded playground, leaving you standing at the gate. Yes, I had one of them . I cried all morning . Years ago now.

    Another weekend upon us, so I hope you all enjoy whatever you've planned.


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