    Morning elite, going with ds2 to Gordale garden center on the Wirral to look at the Christmas displays later, they are meant to be lovely.
    Think it's time to have my first mince pie later, do I buy or make? I've got a couple of jars of luxury mince meat in the cupboard just the inclination is missing!

    Evening folks Absolutely so will not be updating list tonight, though I have copied info from posts

    I dropped my two woofers at Joy's for boarding at 10am then drove over to the pick up point at M1/Leicester, getting there at noon. Hung around with a couple picking up another of Juliana's dogs, sweet short legged Toby ♥. I got in touch with transporter about 1pm just as messages came through that dog van would arrive at 3pm Oh well, a trip up the road to a small Asda and then Morries for diesel to fill up using my 10p a litre coupon .... which I had forgetten to pick up off coffee table so just put in enough to get me back

    When I got back to pick up point, van had just arrived. I helped the couple get their Toby sorted and then got Rosie settled in crate in back of my car. Drove home and carried her into my house for just over an hour then drove up to Joy's with her. Saw her settled there then went to village hall we had our show in last weekend, as meeting the ladies, and a gent, for a short fund raising meeting and an evening of fun with free jukebox. Our choices were making everyone laugh Home just after 11 pm

    And I'm out tomorrow - help So, let me introduce Rosie, 11.5 months old, rescued from a terrible shelter with her brother and sister back on 14th February. She is very frightened but settled down to cuddles at my house beofore I took her to Joy's

    In crate in my car:



    Am I allowed to sit here? I'll just stay very still and no-one will notice me



    Show me the map again Aunty Susan of how far I have travelled I don't have to go back there, do I?



    She is very skinny so needs filling out and strengthening up, but she is a beautiful dog, lovely markings, and eyes ♥

    I assume this is an attempt to target T. Today is the last day I would try this as the T offer is currently due to run until only 5th December. I can add Royal Game and also the Cocka-leekie Soup that this website doesn't like if I put an additional hyphen there. Most of them that A has, I don't know if it's all of them, should work but, yes, you do need to check T's website to try to make sure. The Waities 4 for 3 offer, for those that don't shop in Northern Ireland, is due to run until 26th December - so, although there may not be many as good other items vs W as there are vs T, maybe more time to run vs W (if T doesn't roll over - if it does, I would avoid the one/two days vs T during which it may lose the offer online in an effort to trip me up again that I am wary of falling for these days - if you are just buying five soups, including the trigger, and four different 10p sweets, it shouldn't matter a great deal if T changes prices online as it should still hit W - might just lose a few insignificant pence on the sweets being N/A - on shops not done in Northern Ireland).

    Bed has arrived now waiting for DH to get up so we can put it together Its for DD2's old room. She moved to a rented house in Chelmsford with her GF 6 weeks ago and the bedroom has been completely empty since (well apart from the built in wardrobes which are full of things that she didn't want to take but still wanted to keep). Bedroom has been decorated and will now be a guest room. Just in time as DD & her GF are coming to stay next weekend and we won't see them again until after christmas so I have to have all their presents ready for them to take back next weekend hence the shopping trip later today

    Interesting that the Android Pay clock doesn't seem to operate to UK time unless there's a fault today. I wonder (if like Receipt Hog) it operates to Pacific Standard Time of -8 hours?

    Two transactions made at 0730 and 0735 today have both stated that I have exceeded the 10 daily limit, however no transactions have been made since 1800 yesterday.

    Morning all!

    Had a lovely couple of days in Cheltenham, apart from a disastrous breakfast in Wetherspoons - waited 45 mins and it turned up stone cold! But that meant more space for a cheesy German sausage and a Baileys in the Christmas market, so silver linings and all that

    Hope everyone has a fulfilling and festive Sunday. Lots to do today, making up for being away and all the usual weekend jobs, but I'm going to get some Christmas choons on and I'm sure that'll help.

    Thanks to everyone who suggested some little gift ideas for the food bank, I'm going to get some craft sets and I bought some of the 1 Wilko blox kits, which look very good value for the price. Judging by how much DH has enjoyed his Wilko advent calendar so far, I think they'll go down well, no matter the age of the recipient

    Good morning all

    Mrs LDS we all make mistake Why did I think that the muller yougurts were buy in 12's so paid just over 4.00 for yogurt that is not for me

    Did I mention that the main accounts manager resigned on Friday He is working his 12 weeks notice he was more verbally abused than me by That boss I would have gone constructive dismissal May not have won but a would have caused a hell of a lot of issues and resulted in a settlement agreement to make it go away

    I am tidying some papers and a garage that DS has made a tiny space in by taking away his Christmas decs

    Enjoy your day
    Merry Christmas

    Good morning everyone.

    Well I am truly knackered this morning.

    Got a phonecall from OH at 4.05 to go pick him up, as he went out last night with friends drinking. He said he had text me at 1pm, to fetch him in half an hour, I didnt hear a text so he waited until 4 to ring .

    Marmite are your posting pics of your tree. I think everyone should post a pic of trees when up.
