    Cherish those you have in your life because you never know when they won't be there anymore.

    No matter how you feel, get up, dress up & never give up.

    Maybe, but when you have little to no energy it's off little significance then you watch it again because you can't remember any of it

    how about an afternoon tea...

    I've got a friend who decided to take a business associate there for morning coffee a few months ago and ended up with a bill in excess of £50 for a couple of drinks and something biscuity on the side!

    But last time I went I was with someone that I am friends she with took me to a posh shop, to have a special drink (I cannot remember the name of the pub or drink). I do remember that the drink, in this cafe, in a shop, cost £35 each!!!! and the drink was gin slush (which I had in the freezer at home - I did not tell my friend that).... but OMG!

    Accumulative cost of having adult child in 2017.

    My treats are running the house on a single income, doing the house, paying for DS1 MBA costs, and DS2 MA costs, and our trip to Thailand to see DS1 get married (which is rather indulgent - as we are going for a month, and taking DS2, GF and DS3 which I am paying for). I would at this time in my life not pay £35 for a drink, but I look forward to the day when I can afford to do so (but still unlikely to do so as I am tight but it is nice to have the option ). Until then I will need to live my life through others... can you need to share your memories that surround that drink? Was there a special person involved? naked frolics? x

    I asked you were you were travelling from when you were looking for cheap options.

    The company was good, but it was the venue. I was sitting right next to the road, and never had a better spot to people/car watch in my life. And yes that lager was expensive, but it lasted a darn sight longer than any other drink I have bought, I certainly got my moneys worth
