    I am not sure if the Alo is one bottle per household or one of each flavour per household.
    The instructions say bizarrely one flavours each per household.

    I've been to an open day at Thatchers cider today

    Of course, it would be rude not to sample the goods wouldn't it?!

    Good Evening

    I hardly ever find wombles at Sada, maybe 1 per month if I'm lucky but I do find quite a few in Lidl's carpark which is nowhere near Sada

    Neither me nor DH get any Waitys conditional spends. I had one set about a year ago but nothing since

    Mr TM met up with this very tall person today

    He looks petrified to me

    I had one burning question for him to ask Mr Wiggins and he refused to ask it

    Does he cycle in bed?

    Shows they are being picked up but sadly only the one purchased.

    Something a bit odd with my W shops though. No PYO picked up for Fairy, even though confirmed. Cheese picked up on one shop but not the other, same stuff, same barcode, wierd so I didn't do any more. Email on way to W to find out why. Usually when spending £30 with a voucher the till generates another, but not today.

    Out for a while now, well going for a soak in the Hot Tub, but will catch up later.

    Just had a fabulous revelation

    I have a trip to Newcastle airport to make on Friday afternoon and I've just realised that Ponteland is only 5 miles away.

    And guess what's at Ponteland?
