    As for Montezuma chocolates, in my day that was when we gave people laxative chocolates

    As for lego, we still have a out half a ton of it in the attic, and I have my own lego to make up the Starship Enterprise, and the lego sourced from the same guy that made the lego Christmas tree at St Pancras in 2011, and the instructions off the internet

Added it to my basket, looked about amazon for a couple of other things to buy, and then the badger has sold out, and gone up 7!! I had a 6 off voucher to use on it too, grrr. Darn TV!

    I've just bought myself one of these for my daily walks. This colour is only 1.32 inc P&P. Not sure I'll have the nerve to wear it, but would be great for keeping warm whilst wombling too.

    My DD is a happy bunny, very pleased with 6 x popcorn multipacks which I gave her for the children's next movie night, and a Dove washbag which is not only handy for her 2-day work conference later this week, but even more useful as she finished her last deodorant this morning.

    Parcels posted, just two heavy ones left to drop off at a collection point tomorrow. I had to get extra strong outer wraps, a roll of dark blue, heavy duty ''rubble bags'' from HB was perfect for this (99p.)

    One card left to get, and it needs to be special.
    All shall be well, and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well.

    I was once told off for wearing my cycle helmet in T's, I had a bit of a bicker with the security guard because there was two people in there in the full black Islamic dress including full veil, he reckoned it was a religious thing, I told him the Koran does not require it and only asks that women dress modestly, and it was a choice, and I chose to wear my helmet to avoid hurting people with it jn the store and avoid having it destroyed by someone when i leave it hanging on my bike, then walked out having already done my shopping.

    I FB'd T's when I got home and they said that I could wear my helmet in store, so I did so the following week, walked past the same guard, and he went red, think I annoyed him
