    That is ridiculous. No way I could stay in a house at that temperature, but everything open too, silly idea as counteracts the heating!

    DD2 and family have gone to Rome for a few days. My 4 yo DGS was so excited about going to the Colosseum. He has seen it on Go-jetters and can't wait to see all of the Romans fighting etc!!! Think he is going to be a bit disappointed at just seeing the building. TV has a lot to answer for sometimes.

    How are you? You are so close to target now. Bet it is nice being back home. x

Mind you last time I noticed it was valid for 24 hours - I know somewhere where there are 3 Neros within walking distance of each other so you could easily use the non working code in 3 shops

    Just grabbed *coughs* a few Dr Oetker pizza vouchers off the FB messenger ap.

    I know a lot of people are sick of them, but they are free food and very handy for a quick meal to just bung in the oven.
