    Noooo....



    I just read that Irma is 400 miles wide.

    I just looked up the width of the UK - about 300 miles at its widest point.

    ooh no I missed it but found it now.

    SSM, what about making two separate lists of random preferences, His and Hers, one for groom, one for bride. Guests just have to put a circle round what they think that person prefers.

    eg for bride :

    city or beach

    party or cinema

    cocktail or champagne

    satin or lace

    cheesecake or ice-cream

    nude or pyjamas

    chocolate or cherries

    jogging or gym

    laptop or magazine

    You could also put some 'naughty' or spicy choices in the list.

    The guest with the highest score on each list wins, so two winners.

    I popped into Lidl today to return a pack of peppers bought yesterday that were well past their best. The green one was mouldy.

    I think it's the first time I've ever had to return anything.

    There was someone moving boxes around at the front of the store so I asked her if I could change them.

    Yes she said. Went and got a fresh pack. Didn't even want to see my receipt.

    I'm starting to think she didn't even work there

    BG email just now "Your monthly payment amount needs to change from £69.89 to £124.36."

    I submitted my readings as requested - it said as a result I was in credit by £15. So imagine my surprise just now when the bill has come through. I know the fix ends next month and that it will be going up, but seriously? Are they having a laugh?
