    For anyone interested I watched an interview with Dr Myhill, what she has to say makes a lot of sense. (The interviewer is a bit rubbish though)

    Bubbs - she eats the fat on her meat too.
    Something unexpected happened which made me smile and still continues to make me smile.

    Good afternoon, lovely Elite

    One for the dog lovers. Amazon are doing a deal on a posh box of doggie goodies, costs £9.99, but they credit you back the cost in full towards your next pet related purchase. Looks like you need Prime to get the deal, mind.

    For people looking for a cheap hotel before a cruise in Southampton , Malmaison have their £50 night offer on again, and there is a hotel in Winchester. Wish I had not booked my Premier Inn, as would have stayed there instead. Friday nights only. Thanks to HUKD

    Edit: Ignore, that one isnt included.

    Not £100 a night, its £50 for the room, and then £50 for the meal/drinks. So if a PL is going to be £70, you might as well pay another £15 each to get a 3 course meal thrown in and a nicer experience.

    Im sure I stopped at Winchester once, and the PI was right next to the station, but as usual, I could be wrong as its a little blurry.

    I wouldn't class myself as an elite expert......but I live near Winchester. the railway station is at the top of the hill an easy stroll into the town. The Premier Inn is about a 10 minute walk from the shops but the opposite end of the railway station.....so about a 25 -35 minute walk from the Train Station. The Wessex Hotel (a Mercure) is in the middle of the town. so about a 10-15 minute walk from the Train Station. Hope this helps!

    Evening paw sniffers

    Well I never got to Teskies today so I don't know if there was overage on the Dream milk to go towards the Kettle chips.

    And the reason I never got to Teskies was that I changed handbags and left my coupon wallet at home

    Couldn't bear to enter a supermarket without my coupons. Then I WOULD have to spend really money.

    It's been a proper chilly day today

    When we do the midweek afternoon shops my Oh is usually still in his work suit with his work ID name badge on a neck cord.
    He quite reguarly gets mistaken for a supermarket manager - probably because of the hanging about and looking bored expression. Last week in Aldi someone wanted to return something from produce for an exchange so Oh just told them to go help themselves

    (I know most people would be out of their suit and into jeans as soon as they got home but Oh thinks this would be exhausting so he skips a step and goes straight from work suit into his sleep suit - hence still being in work suit going shopping)
